Disappearing Pictures

Postby DavidS » Mon Oct 30, 2006 5:58 am

I have been trying to post recent pictures of my grandchildren on BBB. One attempt came out miniature thumbnail size. I then figured out how to adjust the size suitably and managed to get a photo into a message on the board. However, when I left the window to edit the message and returned, or simply tried to refresh the window, I got the dreaded red X in a box!
Any ideas how to remedy this phenomenon?

Sounds like this has to do with where you are posting/hosting the image. You need a website to host it or something like Photobucket.

Thanks very much, GC.
I changed my hosting site to Photobucket and it seems to be working OK now! :D
