I wanted to change my avatar, but I ran into a problem. When I pick "Link to off-site avatar" and enter the URL to the avatar file I want to use, the image does not show up. It will show up if I enter the same URL under "Upload avatar from a URL" instead, which copies the file to this site. Does "Link to off-site avatar" no longer work?

Here's the URL I was using, to a file on my own webspace:

OK, I solved this puzzle. Images from my own website were blocked in the web browser I was using. Somehow they were working from direct links, but not when displayed in a webpage. All fixed now. :-D
