    I go to my page, click to edit page, click to insert an image and I get the "insert/edit image" box. I have tried pasting the url from 1 of my uploaded photos in the "image url" box, but it doesn't insert the image. What am I doing wrong?

    I just right clicked in the image box, selected copy then pasted in my BYC page. You should have to do that for each pic. Make sure the cursor is where you want to put the photo. I hope this helps, if not let us know and we'll try again.

    It tells me that copy/paste is not allowed in Mozilla Firefox. I'm just trying to figure out why it won't insert the pic from my uploaded pics in BYC? Thanks for the help, E.G.

    Look at the how to edit instructions. Pictures on the pages take a different tag than ones on the forum.

    Copy and paste definitely is allowed in Firefox, I do it all the time. If you're using the upload tool BYC offers it should work seamlessly, if it doesn't, then something else is wrong besides the use of Firefox.

    I can't remember exactly, but one of the copy/paste ways works and the other doesn't.

    For example, you can CTRL+C CTRL+V or you can use your mouse and right click. I'm 99% sure one works in FF and one doesn't with the BYC page creator.

    Houndit was right...I used Internet Explorer and had no problems whatsoever.

    Reinbeau...have you tried using Firefox to add pics to your byc page? Maybe it's only there that it doesn't work. According to Mozilla, it's a security measure.

    Thanks Houndit!!!
