I decided today I'd change my Avatar but each time I paste the link in the box and update profile the page shows "no image" as being the selection rather than the Avatar I linked to?



This is what is being pasted in the section;
https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7565/15960311605_848dff3999_q.jpg - and it obviously works for viewing here in the post :) - - - but not in the Specify avatar by URL section.

I've tried checking through on Flickr and it seems I should be using the "Share" arrow icon and copying one of four types of 'link' addresses - having tried all four, none work.

Guidance would be really appreciated please :)

Frank, try taking out the s in https (it will still link to your photo) and/or do not use the img or hyperlink tags. See below.

Not to worry, I have done it for you. :D You are very handsome now!
