Inserting avatars

Can someone tell me how to insert an animated avatar from a free site? I want to do it for my grandson, and don't know how to make it work. I tried, but only got the strings below, not the avatar.

Here's what it shows:

HTML code:

Direct link to avatar:

Forum signature (it doesn't say any particular forum):

Please tell me how to get it into his profile, or signature, or where ever he want to use it.

    Ok, I see it got in. So is the last string for inserting Forum signature the right one?

    The HTML code doesn't show in the post. I'll try to show it again:

    Hi Judy,

    I just finished playing with avatars over on the main forum page for c tredwell @ If you read my two post over there they may help. As I understand it the avatar graphic should be on your hard drive so it can be up loaded from there. The graphic should also be 70 X 70 pixels in size so you may have to do a little editing there. Hope this helps,

    I did see the posts and they didn't mean much to me, having never gone through the process. But I'll give it more attention and play around with it. I don't know why the avatar worked with the "Forum signature" code. Maybe that code is the one to experiment with.

    Later, 'gator (I've been dying to use that on you)

    LOL, I get the "Later, 'gator" from my brother all the time.

    I think the "Forum signature" image can be larger then an avatar. Avatars are pretty specific. The avatar you are trying to use is 100 X 79, I think the prescribed size is 70 X 70. It is an animated gif file and may be tricky to resize.


    Gator (LOL, It works for me too.)
