    Can anyone tell me why I can't post pictures on my personal page from photobucket? I've tried twelve dozen times and it just won't work!!! [​IMG] Any suggestions?

    Hope so.
    First make sure the photo is resized for website by editing in Photobucket. Then copy the img code.

    Then I just paste. I don't use the img on our toolbar - it's not necessary.

    See if that helps.

    good luck [​IMG]

    Oh, if you want to post them on your page!

    Ok, so here's how;
    When you're editing your page, click on the tree which opens up the little window.
    Go to photobucket and copy the img
    paste the img in the little edit window - BUT you're not done. YOu need to edit the img address. erase the 'img' and brackets at the beginning and end of the address.

    This should work! I had the same frustration [​IMG]

    If you copy and paste the "direct link" instead of the IMG link you will not have to edit.

    I got my pictures posted, but how do you move them about on the page? When I post more than two it doesn't post them DOWN the page but across! ????

    I had the same problem! Once you post a picture, press the space bar a time or two or else they'll post side by side. I don't know another way.

    Right hitting spacebar seperates the pictures or just hit enter and you can post another picture underneath the previous one.
