    Can someone tell me how to post pictures from my phone? Every time I try to do it the picture never shows up. Thanks!

    First go to the box you write in then click the icon with a mountain (looks like a photo). Then click upload from my device. Pick the file and then your photo and click submit. It should start loading and eventually put a link in your box. Then when you post the photo should show up. It's kind of finicky on the mobile and doesn't always work. Hope that helped :)

    You may need to switch to desktop version of BYC, mobile and app can sometimes be a little glitchy. It's still the same mountain and moon icon to upload pics on desktop. You can switch to desktop by scrolling right down to the bottom of any page and clicking on desktop.

    Good luck, hope you get your pics posted soon :D

    If you are using Internet Explorer from your cell phone then ignore the above advice and download Firefox app. I went through the same thing for a month and all this ^ advice is all anyone could recommend. Firefox takes up alot of bandwidth so I only switch to it to upload a picture.

    You don't need to switch to desktop mode and I know that people are trying to help but it gets old having them walk you through where the upload button is. We can see the button, it just doesn't work for IE.

    I am actually using the BYC app, lol it is much faster than going through the internet.
