    For one, Is it possible I can set my avatars to where they accept other file extensions BESIDES .jpg? If so how would I do this? Also, is it possible to use animated gifs like VB has?

    Also, I wanna set the dimensions to 200x400 but it seems really weird when I do it? like it does this, http://prntscr.com/5v44im is it a way we can change it to where the post bit is aligned up to this?

    ALSO, if I wanted to move the date and time to the top of the thread like vb has, is it possible to do this?

    Also, if i wanted to space out posts so they aren't all linked together, how can we go about doing this?

    Sorry for double posting but I still need some help here.

    The avatar sizes in XF are completely static.

    Changing them would require some sort of custom development or add-on. I'm not aware of an add-on that does exactly what you want, though.

    Yes, by editing the template.

    Linked together? Like add a margin between each one? Sure, with a template edit.

    For the first question, how can I get animated gifs? like VB has.

    For the second & thirst question is it possible you can assist me with these template edits

    @Chris D Is there any addon that can change the sizes for avatars to where it's 200x400 or change it per usergroup??? Like, I think this would be really useful especially with a lot of forums allowing upgrades to be purchased, a lot of people like getting them for bigger avatar images, at least with VB it was this way... Heres an example of what I'd like them to be. http://puu.sh/eQ5Sx/8972474f29.png this was taken from a VB forum, basically what I'd like is something similar to this with the username and usertitle above the avatar image and the expansion of the avatar image.

    If that makes sense.

    You should just need a host that supports imagemagick or the PHP GD library. It isn't exactly a VB or XenForo feature.
    Sorry, I'm not a very good customizer, but the template search function works well. I would think that if you knew a little CSS, it wouldn't be too much of a problem.

    At this one, I'm okay with CSS, just not too sure where'd be the best place to start.

    at the first one I'll look into that

    Sorted that bit already, I'm having other issues though... Basically I used this tutorial https://xenforo.com/community/resources/avatars-big-tall.1741/ to change my avatar images and basically I want it to be 200x400 so I edited the CSS a bit to where it'll show as 200x400 avatar images as shown here:

    But now what I'm trying to do instead of this stretching the image, I'd like it to crop the image and I'm not too sure how I'd go about doing this, do you possibly have any suggestions or could possibly assist me with editing this? Not sure if that made sense.

    Any questions related to that resource should be posted on the associated thread.

    Ultimately though, it requires code to crop - it can't be done with CSS.
