I've put images on TDH and COW from photobucket with no problem. How do you go about doing it here? I post the URL and all I get is an X or image has been deleted message. Does the RPF use a different method? I don't know what I'm doing wrong.:eek Run a step by step by me so I can start posting.

Dont use the insert image button when inserting a link from photobucket. Just copy the URL from photobuckets insert image field and paste it here. That should work.

I got the code for posting on message boards. Typed it exactly as it told me and this is what I get. The albums on my Photobucket are fine, so i don't know what the problem is. Also, please talk English and NOT technobabble. I'm not the most tech savy guy in the world.

Thanks,
Scott

The link itself is the problem, it doesn't work. If I just enter that link into the browse it comes up with a "page not found" error.

Is this site Html or JPG? I've tried both and nothing. I tried posting something weeks ago with the hosting service and that wouldn't work either.

Typo in your link...

Should be
Code:

You have
Code:
http://i470.photobucket.com/albums/rr65/yodakiller1138/WGpistol1001.jpg
Notice you have an extra 1 in the file number

Typing this

[.img]http://i470.photobucket.com/albums/rr65/yodakiller1138/WGpistol001.jpg[./img] minus the periods before the img tag

Results in this



You can view your photos and simply copy what is in the yellow box to insert them into post here...

The easiest way to put pics into a post is by using that small "mountain and sun"-icon, the third icon from the right atop the text input window that pops up once you hit the reply button. Simply copy the URL of the image into the box and hit "okay".
