    Not sure if this is the right place for this or not...I JUST started setting up my BYC member page....and I am trying to insert photos from my uploads..and I click on the image link..and copy and paste it into the image/edit box, and then click submit, or whatever it says..and it just shows me a broken symbol..and my image doesn't show up....I've done this with no problems on other pages, but can't seem to get it to work here..can anyone help me out at all

    Thanks

    I don't know if this is the right way or not, but this is the way I found to do it. I post pics to the thread, then highlight and copy and past to the BYC My page.

    Tutorial found here: https://www.backyardchickens.com/web/viewblog.php?id=2-Personal_Pages


    How to add pictures using the BYC Page Creation Tool:

    1) Upload your images using the BYC image upload tool or to any image hosting / storage service.
    2) Copy the image URL for the image (something like https://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/uploads/2_alana-chicks-shoulders.jpg )
    3) Within the BYC editor click on the "Insert Image" icon
    4) Paste the image URL in the field called "Image URL"
    5) Add a description and Title then click "Insert"

    IMPORTANT NOTE:
    The BYC Page Tool uses DIFFERENT image codes from what the forum uses.
    In the forum, to post an image you use the image tags like this: [img][URL]https://www.backyardchickens.com/images/BYC-chicken.gif[/URL][/img ]
    When you post pics using this BYC Page Editor you ONLY post the image URL like this: [URL='https://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/uploads/2_alana-chicks-shoulders.jpg<br>Youll']https://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/uploads/2_alana-chicks-shoulders.jpg
    You'll[/URL] notice there are NO img tags in the link to the image.[/INDENT]​
