    They only show up as urls until you hit post.

    If that doesn't help, maybe it has something to do with the new forum tomorrow??

    Try this...
    Have your page open for editing in one tab and your uploads open in another tab, and open the Insert Image thing...

    On your image, ONLY copy the URL, don't include the tags. The easiest way to do it is to left click on the image and copy the URL from the address bar on your browser.

    Paste it into the URL space, add a description and title, and then hit submit.

    Hope this helps you get it worked out! [​IMG]

    I did post some pics to the forum, but can't post to my page, it shows up on my page just like it does in a post but after hitting post changes at the bottom of the page only text shows on my page.

    The forum will be down most of today switching to new format/platform. In the new forum posting pictures should be more user friendly. So relax and wait for the upgrade, may be ready tonight. I'm just here browsing over morning coffee, almost didn't expect BYC to be up an running.
