    I am having real problems trying to upload a picture onto a thread from my photobucket account. I cant get it to copy the link so as i can paste it into the thread. I have posted loads of pics in the past but it seems to have stopped allowing me to do this. Any help for a techno dinosaur will be much appreciated.
    Thanks in advance

    How long have you had the problem and what are you using to access it? PB can be finicky at times.

    All I do is open the image in photobucket, down the right hand side is a list of links. I click on the "Direct Link" URL and it copies it automatically to your clipboard. In BCUK I click the insert image button and when it opens up the pop up window I right click the mouse in the box and paste the URL and click OK.

    Hope this makes sense to you? If not I will try to think of a better way to describe the process.

    If you use an ad blocker disable it on photobucket.

    Thanks for that info. But when I go to insert the image the "paste" option isnt highlighted.

    That's because you are trying to paste in the "browse your computer" tab. Click on the URL tab and you should see the paste option.
