Who's on first? :P

 

kamera69, I think you have to have a URL. Go to http://photobucket.com/ and register for a free account. Then upload the image you want to post to your photobucket account, which will give you a URL which you can link to here, using the IMG button.

Hi,

OK I created a Photobucket account, uploaded a picture, went to upload a picture on a reply to the Via Chicago message board, pressed the image button, got the dialogue box to type in the URL from Photobucket, copy & pasted the URL in, hit OK and the dialogue box just freezes.

Any suggestions, what am I not doing right?

What format is the photo in (i.e. jpg, png, gif)? Just wondering if maybe the pic is in a format not allowed on this board.

It was a jpg. Is that not allowed?

 

Yep, that one is good. Not sure why it isn't working for you. Maybe you could try uploading the picture to a different photo hosting site such as http://imgur.com/ and see if that makes a difference.

Tried using Imgur.

Same thing happens when I type in the URL to the dialogue box and hit OK - just freezes.

Thanks for trying to help anyway.

Hey Robby, when use imgur.com, are you selecting the "Direct Link" option or the "BB Code (Forums)" option? I've had trouble with the BB Code one before & only use the direct link now. You might try & see  whether that makes a difference.
