    Just tried that and it says "not an image" and it is in my photos here on byc?????

    Like I said I can see it if I hit "edit" on my reply, it is just not showing it to the public when I hit "submit"????

    I have been doing great with the new system till today, that's what I don't get all of a sudden.

    Hope you won't mind but I pulled your most recent shot from your album (I watermarked it so I'm copyright copacetic). [​IMG] This should be how your photo page looks as you choose shot to post. I just use the mouse to highlight the entire link (run from far left to far right) and then right click on highlighted link and choose COPY. Then just CTRL-V into post. This is a pretty quick method.

    You set up your pic as a word link rather than insert image.

    I have the same issues and I am a bit fed up with it all. The old way of posting a pic was so simple and easy to understand. I am just filled with conffusion even when folk try to explain things. I am not very computer litterate and so talk of URLs etc goes right over my head. All I want to be able to do is see my pic in my folder and be able to grab it easily and post in a thread and be able to SEE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I came to BYC because it was easy and simple and not complicated like other chicken threads in the UK I have seen. But now all this fancy stuff added - well it is ok if thats what you want from a site but I can't get the basic stuff to work for me and I don;t think I am alone in how I feel. I am thinking of just dileting my pics and not bothering with pics anymore. I am so confused what is the point of all these pics in my file if I can't use them. Also what on earth is a darn default file????? I never asked for one so why do I have one ???? I just want my old photo album back so I can use it - not fancy stuff that isn't any use!!! A lot of folk don't have the "browser" etc that we can use with BYC stuff???????? What good is that to BYC or to us??????? To the regular coop user??????? Ok - What is a browser????( firefox???) Why should I change everything I use for BYC???? When everything was fine before???? I need a 12 yr old????

    Oesdog - I am not enjoying BYC much these days !!!!
