Help with AVs/Avatars

Over the last few days i’ve notice people having trouble with their AV codes in the Deviant Lives rooms, so I thought i’d write a few tips.

  • Scripts are not allowed in AV codes, so if you’re trying to use a font that has the word script in it then it won’t work.
  • Avs with links hidden in them are not allowed. Some chatters visit the site on their phones/tablets and if they tap your av while scrolling it takes them to the link and/or out of the room.
  • Keep it simple. You don’t need a long complicated code.

Examples of av codes (Replace the bold underline parts):

The simplest AV code is:

<IMG SRC="YOUR AV URL"/>YOUR NAME

Seriously!!  Anyone can get this right.

Centered with name under av:

<CENTER><IMG SRC="YOUR AV URL"><BR><FONT FACE="FONT NAME"><FONT COLOR="HEX CODE ">YOUR NAME</FONT></FONT></CENTER>

Left aligned with name on the right side of the av:

<IMG SRC="YOUR AV URL"><FONT FACE="FONT NAME"><FONT COLOR="HEX CODE ">YOUR NAME</FONT></FONT>

Left aligned with name under av:

<IMG SRC="YOUR AV URL"><BR><FONT FACE="FONT NAME"><FONT COLOR="HEX CODE ">YOUR NAME</FONT></FONT>

Right aligned with name on the left side of the av:

<IMG SRC="YOUR AV URL" align="right"><div align="right"><FONT FACE="FONT NAME"><FONT COLOR="HEX CODE">YOUR NAME</FONT></FONT></div>

If you want to customize your font and colour of your posts you add the html tags at the end of your av code (these tags don’t need to be closed):

<font color='HEX CODE'><font='FONT NAME'>

Resizing your AV:

<IMG SRC="YOUR AV URL" style="width:500px;height:350px"/>YOUR NAME


If you want to preview your av and see if there are any errors in the code you can use this online html editor.
