    I believe it's because the URL doesn't have an image extension, if that makes sense. Therefore vBulletin doesn't like it.

    http://www.gravatar.com/avatar.php?g...532d85a3d8395a compared to http://serve.edugeek.co.uk/images/vbulletin/logo.jpg for example. The EduGeek link is a link to an actual image whereas the gravatar link above links to an image ID.

    vBulletin is smarter then that. You can tag the extension but it probably still wont work as there is a header sent by the server that says if the url has been through a php engine. Sending of the header can be disabled though but only if they have set it up correctly.

    I never realised that. After reading what ZH said I guess it's just a case of trying to see whether or not it works.

    Don't forget to push the button russ!
