    Image hosting sites- compatibility

    Having all sorts of trouble posting pics through photobucket, getting an "invalid URL" message. I've tried everything, is this maybe a problem with the server not accepting certain sites? Thanks.

    I can't diagnose problems on Photobucket's end. Lemme' find something hosted by them ...



    Seems to work. Are you using the [img] tag to link to the image (.jpg, .gif, .png)? In the past, some have gotten errors by linking to the page URL, not the image URL.

    Yeah, I'm using the tag button and on the photobucket end I'm copying the image URL. Even tried reducing the image size. Message returned is "Invalid URL".

    Can you try it here, and not edit the message if you get an error?

    Other than the extra "[img]" tags, looks like it's displaying properly.
