The avatars had been stored in the database. The upgrade moved them to the server, where I can see them clearly, along with the path. What I do not understand is how to fix the PHP (of course!)

Maybe you can help. It looks like this:
<img src="$avatarurl" alt="<phrase 1="$post[username]">
$vbphrase[xs_avatar]</phrase>" border="0" />
I see that variable, but do not know where it is defined. Searching on it in templates and stylesheet does not help. So. I tried replacing the "$avatarurl" with the path name "customavatars" but the path is still blank.

Hmmm. I thought it always opened a new window. But I made a note — no reason not to change it, regardless.
