    I have walked both through the steps that work for me, and nothing works for them.

    What's the secret? All help welcome.

    A big TIA!
    One problem at a time, starting with the issue uploading image files.

    What troubleshooting error actually comes up?

    First, determine if the image file is broken, too big, or if it is a single website causing the problem. More often than not it is particular file that causes that sort of an issue.

    Another possibility is that your first friend might be having is that he/she copied the link incorrectly, causing a broken link to the image. Have them double check they correctly copied the link, and if that doesn't work, try using a simple image link that we all know works.

    Images can be linked by typing out the BBcode instead of using the widget. Type [img]the url to the image[/img] and you should get what you want. Just make sure you're linking to an image file.

    File too big is one of the main problems I have with down loading pics from my computer as well. But with photo bucket, no problemo...except now they trademark photos unless I PAY.

    Can they use the image tags directly? [img]url[/img ]? And does the link end in .jpg or another image format, or is it something else?
    And there's no need to worry since everything is mostly nothing;

    They can use the image tags but when they try to post they get an error message. It ends in a gif.
    Where's the quid?
