perhaps it's too large?

i'm not even able to get to that point. when i go into a 'new thread' to add it & i click on the 'insert image' button it just makes a ding sound & nothing pops up so i can add it.

ah... could well be your browser security settings not letting the forums pop up the window?

well, this happened yesterday to me. So today I went into a topic, but cannot remember now which one, & just clicked the link again to see what happened & a small box popped up for me to add the url. Well, i hadn't added the pic to my photobucket acct. so i went out & did that & when i went back I started getting the 'ding' sound again :(

ok, doofus me managed to figure out how to add this site as an ok place for pop ups so now the little screen is coming up. But on photo bucket there are four options for links....
Email & IM
Direct Link
HTML code
IMG code

Which do i use? And as soon as i put the link in the box should it show the pic when i click preview post? Because it's not. Someone help a (dumb) sister out :rolleyes3:

Copy and paste the IMG code directly into the reply box, don't bother with the buttons or links...just paste it exactly as you copy it directly into the reply box where you would normally type...

Afterwards, if you click "preview post" you should see it.

Go on, try it, I'll wait here :D

This is me doing what I just said...

YIKES!
ok, it worked but DANG! NO one needs a silly pic of me that big to pop up! I'm gonna scare people as they scroll down the page.
