I visit several different forums .... posting pix is different for some. This one baffles me. I use Photobucket and mo matter which of the 4 choices I use, links are all I get in my posts!

What am I doing wrong?

    Use the direct link from photobucket. You can post it with by adding it to the photo button in the toolbar. If you don't have that option you can post it within your text by adding <img src= before your link and > at the end.

    Go back to your burger post and try adding that to the beginning and end of your links.

    For some of us behing Corporate firewalls, the "Attach a file" link works best.  I can't see any pics posted on sharing sites as those are whacked.

    Here is 'attach a file' ... very slow.

    I have looked at many other pix by other peeps here and when I right click on them and select 'properties' I see Photobucket ... so WTF?

    I must be as dumb as a stick, because I don't see any photoicon (fourth from the left of anywhere) ????

    Is there a setting that I have to access before seeing it? ... and we are talking about this page are we not?

    First BB trying to put up a pic.

     

    Who cares I'll post where I want
  • geegee Posts: 71
    That was easy. I just hit attach  a file;. Use your pic right off your computer.

    Thanks gee ... I had already figured that one out, but I was wanting to do it with Photobucket, so that I could post several pix at a time'

    'Attach a file' is more tedious for me, because I keep all my pix on a separate drive and each pic has to be accessed one at a time. Not sure if I made that clear, but trust me, it is a pain ....

    That one was on C drive ... perhaps I should just send a whole album over to C drive until I have uploaded, and then just delete it from there ...

    I can't figure out photobucket. That is why I like attaching a file. but I see that you can only attach one at a time

  • SqueezySqueezy Posts: 1,102

    Thanks gee for your help ... I guess until I can get Photobucket figured out, I'll use the attach feature.

    What bugs me, is seeing other posts that when you right click on the pic and properties, you see it came from Photobucket...

    Unbelievable, I have tried exactly what you said before and no dice. Just moments ago, I tried again. The second time it worked, but after hitting post, the whole frigging post was gone. So here I am trying again ... wishing myself luck!image

    Wow ... it worked this time!  I thought we would be tired of another BGE pic ... :-))

    Don't have any idea what was different from my earlier attempts, but thank you for your patience and help.

    You are a prime example of what makes forums work ... thank you again!
