    Alright so I'm trying to put in a new avatar but it keeps saying "This JPEG image has the incorrect file extension"
    What do I have to do to fix it??
    The image is 9.51 kb

    I think your avatar can only be a .jpg or .gif (it may be able to be a .png but I can't remember), so the avatar you're trying to upload is probably neither of those.

    The only way I can think to fix it is to go to Paint (or some other program) and click "Save As", and then at the end of the filename change whatever is after the period to "jpg" and I think it should work.

    Sometimes Hotlinking doesn't work.

    Maybe go to Tinypic, put your picture in, view full size, and drag it onto a new page. (Right click and move it to a new link)


    Most of the time gifs don't work either, so keep that in mind!

    This ends on a good note.

    It can be a PNG. It only works if I upload it from my computer. It won't work from a host website even if it's resized. This goes for every Vbulletin forum I'm a member of. When posting pictures I use photobucket.

    If the file extension is the wrong one just go save the file to your computer but modify ".png" or ".gif" or whatever into JPEG, it has the wrong extension but if you modify it to JPEG it should work fine, happened to me.

    Edit : Yeah, what Sarah said.

    If it's the right file extension you can link it, but if it has the wrong file extension then you won't be able to change it and thereby you'll need to upload it from your computer and change it from that, you can't modify a hotlink that doesn't belong to you.

    Works fine from a host site for me.
