    Hi Jimmy, when you log onto photobucket, open the Album of where the pics you want to post up is stored. Underneath the Thumnail pics(not actually thumbnails, they are smaller versions of of your pics) is three addresses, you need to copy and paste the bottom one with tags at the start and end of it and you will get the pic on here.
    I got the URL links to the pics by right clicking the squares and going to properties.

    Hi Jimmy, you seem to have added some audisport text onto your link, I've removed it to get it to work, click on the 'Quote' button of this post to see what I mean.

    JimmyJames,

    Instead of using the shortcut buttons while typing your post out, just type something like the following directly into your post:

    [​IMG]

    The [​IMG] tags tell the website that you're inserting a picture, and the http://.... stuff is the address of the picture on the tinternet, which you can get from PhotoBucket's thumbnail page.

    When you try this, leave out the spaces between the [​IMG] so that it's all one string.

    I've got the same problem! Started a photobucket account to get some pics on the threads and cant get them on.. just that really annoying red box thing!
    I'm not really that great with computers.. dont even know how to copy and paste so if some one would like to simplify these steps to how to get some pics up i'd greatly appreciate it.

    Thanks from the captain of chaos :keule:

    Floyd, Ah you find yourself with the same problem as i had.

    Right, now that I've learned from the above chaps, heres what you do.

    Photobucket site

    1. Left click to highlight last (4th) IMG File (it automatic copies - wee yellow box comes up with the word copied) or left click IMG file then right click and select copy. Either way you now have the copied link.

    A-Sport site

    1. Select you thread/new thread.
    2. Write your entry (Obviously if before pic or later after pic)
    3. Do not select the wee picture icon above the thread box.
    4. Instead right click and select Paste.
    5. With this done no picture will appear yet but the whole file thread will be there from photobucket.
    6. Go to preview post and now your picture will appear along with your entry.

    My pic below is exactly done here from that guide I've written.

    Hope your sorted now. Try it back in this thread.

    Cheers Jas.
