Why am I not able to post a photo when all that appears is a red "X" in the space where the photo should appear?
I have tried three different pics with the same result today.
Where are the pics posted. Are you linking from a remote site like photobucket or flickr?
If life gives you melons, you *may* be dyslexic.
Yes, Randy. I am posting from Photobucket. Worked always before and today it came up and wouldn't allow the photo to come up.
Tim, I followed Jeff's link to your thread and all I saw was an asterik. I assume you got frustrated, deleted the link, got denied because there then was no text or content, and then you typed an asterik. Re-edit your original thread and leave the Red X so that others can try to discern what's not working. Occasionally one or the other systems (ie Pop and/or webhost such as Photobucket et al) are temporarily down and the link may not work. Are you using the Insert Image icon?
You can setup Photobucket to show linking options either always or only on "mouseover", ie when you move the cursor over the pic in your gallery, link options that you can setup from your Account Settings tab. I have mine set to Direct Link only. Photobucket keeps tweaking their format, causing me to have to refamiliarize myself with how its set up occasionally. I've got my account and galleries the way that works for me, ie black background, all pics on one continuous page w/ Direct Link hidden until mouseover. When I mouseover from my gallery (ie thumbnails), I just click on Direct Link which selects the actual link, then right click on it (the highlighted link) and select Copy, then paste it here using PopPhoto's Insert Image icon. I noted that if you go to the full image you just need to click on the URL next to "Direct Link" and its automatically Copied so that you just need to paste here using Insert Image icon. I prefer linking from my gallery.....less time consuming vs waiting for each pic to load one at a time.
Was this your image you were trying to post?

Visit, enjoy, and invest in our National Parks. It's "America's Best Idea".
Yes, Russ!!!!!! One of several and you are right about the frustration. Compared to other sites this one absolutely is crazy but I am trying.
BTW.....how'd you pull that pic up? I don't have the skills to understand computer cyberspeak. I've no formal training and have to learn things the hard way.
