    How come I don't see avatars inside of threads? I see the avatar of the person who started the thread on the thread list but when I go inside the thread I see a blank square where the avatar should be but no avatars.

    Sister River ... WELCOME HOME ... :wave: :wave: :wave:

    We were worried about you! So glad you've made it back !!!! :grouphug:

    I can see the avatars within the threads, for each post.

    I've included an image of your post above, that shows your avatar to me.

    Let me know if you see something different than this image, or if i'm not understanding properly.

    Love You!

    if one dares to take a course other than the proscribed, one sometimes encounters "turbulence" ... or "Freedom".

    with colors turned off, or set to "use my colors", the avatars do NOT show up. when allowing the site to set it's own colors, the avatars are there.

    BINGO

    That is the exact problem. I disallow the sites colors to make the screen easier for me to read. Since the avatars are not acatually on the page anymore but used as table background they are not visible to me unless I allow the site colors, but that will make the rest of the site difficult to read for I see best with a black background and white letters.

    You know, this reminds me of the world famous mystery of the missing pillows. It was called the pillow case.

    Hey sista Destee, had a looooong vacation on the east coast with no access to a computer. Glad to be back. You know this Match will be my eighth year at destee.com. Yalza!

    Love you too.

    Sista Destee, Your work is much appreciated. As a web designer myself I know what you mean, though I've never administrated anything *** complex as this community so I should not say that I know anything.

    Love, blessings and encouragement to you forever.

    Sister River ... that above comment was for Brother anAfrican, not you.

    The challenge of delivering content for a multitude of different scenarios, is basically the same for me as it is for you, i'm sure. So you do know Sister ... :)

    Sister River ... can you send me a screen shot of how it looks best for you, without the colors, black and white ... and i'll see what i can do to deliver a solution that does that ... and includes the avatars. It will probably take me a minute to actually deliver it, as i'm often juggling several different things at the same time, but i'll begin trying.

    YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY @ 8 YEARS !!! :toast: :toast: :toast: ... Thank You Sister!

    Love You! :kiss:

    :heart:

    Sista Destee,

    It should not be necessary for you to change the coloring of the whole site, since that may disorient other members and is something I can do myself by configuring my browser to override the colors you specified. In fact, I'm doing it right now and it doesn't affect other members.

    The problem is just the avatars. I used to could see them when they were actually referenced on the page
    ex.
    <img src="avatar.jpg">
    but now they are referenced in the css file as a table background.
    ex.
    table
    {
    background-image:url(avatar.jpg);
    }

    This is what makes them disapear when I override your background colors.

    Okay Sister River ... Thank You.

    I still wanna try to come up with a solution for you, if i can.

    I need to know what the end result looks like for you, the colors you prefer, or work best for you.

    That's why i asked for the screenshot ... or you can tell me what colors work best for you.

    This will be just for you ... :love: ... if i can pull it off.

    Let me know.

    Love You!

    :heart:
