    Hi Is there a way to have all guests have a default avatar? I would like that better than a empty space.

    thanks

    There are already default avatars for those who don't upload one.

    If you are seeing a blank space then it could be a custom style issue, with the default avatars missing from the directory.

    Hi Brogan , they are missing. there is a ? in the avatar box by all the guest posts. Where would I upload my own custom default avatars for guests? I want to make some funny ones.

    In a default style, the default avatars are located in styles\default\xenforo\avatars.

    You will need to upload your own to the equivalent directory in your custom style.

    Be aware, if you change them in the default location... upon your next upgrade the new version of XenForo those will be overwritten with the default ones again.
    I recommend that you use a child style and define in Style Properties the default image location to a new directory for your child style that you have created.
