  • custom avatars not refreshing

    OK i've seen this posted but no resolution to the problem
    Everytime i refresh while in a thread or after posting the avatars show up as a broken link(red x)I checked the path and thats not the problem
    so it must be some sort of server configuration
    Can anyone point me in the right direction?
    Is this a PHP or MySQL configuration issue

    Thanx in advance ~_^

      I don't think that's the problem
      I'm hosted on UnixFreeBSD and the are NO .htaccess files on the entire site :P

              No sorry. It's definitely server and/or ISP related.

                      Ok I have solved this problem myself and it was a vbulletin issue
                      avatar.php
                      PHP Code:
                      if ($avatarinfo=$DB_site->query_first("SELECT avatardata,dateline,filename FROM customavatar WHERE userid=".intval($userid))) {
                        
                      header("Cache-control: max-age=31536000");
                        
                      header("Expires: " gmdate("D, d M Y H:i:s",time()+31536000) . " GMT");
                        
                      header("Content-disposition: inline; filename=$avatarinfo[filename]");
                        
                      header("Content-Length: ".strlen($avatarinfo[avatardata]));
                        
                      header("Last-Modified: " gmdate("D, d M Y H:i:s",$avatarinfo[dateline]) . " GMT"); 

                      I removed "dateline" from the first line in the snipet
                      and now everything works

                      Now if you can just enlighten me on what i did
                      That would be most apreciated

                      Maybe this can help anyone else that has had this problem

                      IT'S VERY ANNOYING

                        What file is that code from? I suspect there's a field missing in your customavatar table.

                          It was from avatar.php

                          Do you really think that could be the problem

                          The avatars(b4 i erased anything)would show up fine when you went to a post.
                          When u refreshed or made a new post and was brought back to the thread
                          They would show up as broken links but the link was valid
                          I could hit the back button in the browser,then move forward again then they would show up

                          Can u tell me what field u suspect me missing and i can check for it

                            Since it works when you remove 'dateline' that's the field I would check.

                              Yes the field is there
                              do you think it could be configured wrong?
