I've posted images before from Photobucket and I've never had any problems. Now when I try to post an image, my post shows a broken link symbol. This would be my first image post since the changeover. Am I missing something with the change?

I've looked at the code being pasted in and it looks correct. Does anybody have any advice?

Here's how I do -scroll down to reply, click on the Image button above (2nd row icons, halfway across, its a picture of a little tree)
'Image properties' with a box URL comes up.  After you copy the direct link from Photobucket, paste into URL box and then click ok.

Which is exactly what I'm doing, only all I get is a broken link icon in my post (in the box where I type). Like I said, I'm even checking the code to make sure it is correct which it is, and I'm using the full editor.

I have no way of telling whether it is a problem with this site or Photobucket's site, or some settings on one site or the other.....I just know it's very frustrating.

Thanks for trying though....

The most common reason for this is that you aren't using the link to the image itself but to the page the image is on.

Can you post the link you are using for me ?
