    Hi,
    Can anyone give me any clues to why I cant post pictures?
    I have done previously with out any problems. I have re sized, tried uploading from flicker and my pc but just get a red exclamation mark next to the pic id on the upload window. If i hover the mouse over this it says undefined?
    Help please!

    Cheers, Stuart

    I gave up trying with Flickr not sure about the whole privacy thing there with making your pics available for all to see. Thought it would be easier up loading from my PC rather than linking through to Flickr, but still no joy

    just had a play with flickr and the best i could was a this pic isnt currently available, i use either face book or photo bucket, photo bucket is very simple, and face book you just grab the img code from pic details pain.

    Could you get an uploaded from your PC? Just think that this would be easiest all round, or should be.
    Just tried from facebook came up invalid URL, mmm something aint right or I'm having a moment here.

    I use Imageshack and have posted photos here for years that way. Now I just get "Invalid URL" as well. I was going to start this very thread.

    first bring up the pic you want in face book and right click on it and select view page info.
    [​IMG]

    then select media.

    [​IMG]

    then scroll to the bottom of the pain then look for the address in this rough location, it will have " IMAGE" after it on the right, if you left click the address the pic will appear in the little preview window to show you have the right on. copy the addy.
    [​IMG]

    then paste this into the forum img insert box, under the URL header.

    [​IMG]

    and below is what you will get if you unchecked the retrieve box.

    hope that helps matey.

    you have to of unchecked the tick box below the URL box, else I tries to pull the photo of your face book page instead of linking to it.

    I have this problem too, I tried to do it from url, from my own drive (with and without resizing) do not want to use Facebook or Flickr and ended up just doing a link to my twitpic a/c. Cannot get any image up onto page though.

    You can't upload from your computer directly to the website. You have to use a medium like Photobucket or Flickr (or FB, didn't thought of that! Nice find)
