Flags and birthdays

http://modelandtoysteamdowunder.myfineforum.org/
I'm trying to set up Flags and Birthdays, but I get a couple of fields in the Profile fields that don't show in Symon's how to vis.


I have no idea what to put in these fields
myff admin

You don' need to do anything, this is only if you want the field to show up as a http link, which is unlikely, or if the string requires some special formatting.

Thanks for that
I can't get flags to work, I've read Symons how to and I can get just a country name to appear but when I insert his code /ranks/ccflags/{FLAGS}.gif I get a broken .gif.
Here's some pictures
I uploaded the files here[au.gif etc]


This is how my profile field is set up


Here's the broken .gif



Here's the result of inspect element behind the broken .gif



What am I doing wrong or missing out?
TIA
myff admin

replace gif with png.
verithingeoff

Thanks mate, that works a treat. I just need to sort out the size of the flags. Should the help page mention png?

Flags again.
I've set four countries in a dropdown list. When I run through them via my profile I get:
au large flag
us large flag
uk broken link
nz tiny flag

Where now?
myff admin

Not sure about nz.png but we work on official two letter country codes, so the uk does not exist it is gb.
verithingeoff

Can the flags be resized

verithingeoff

The gb thing worked fine, I have a number of New Zealanders on the board, they will be really peed off when they see the size of the flag compared to the Australian one
myff admin

Find a NZ png of the right size and I will upload it.

Hi Boss
The flags have been working well, but I can't get the German one to show using code "ger"?
myff admin

Germany is de

Any chance of making it a bit bigger?


myff admin

What path are you using for the flags, there are paths to different sizes.
verithingeoff

/ranks/ccflags/{FLAGS}.png  

Most of the other flags are the correct size but here's another small one

myff admin

German flag fixed, you may need to refresh page.
verithingeoff

I've restarted the forum and cleared out my cache files, the image is still tiny
myff admin

odd, can you give me the image url please.
