    OK. Anytime I have tried posting from the internet I always got the message that the image was too big. I was able to copy such images to my computer and then post here by clicking the photo icon and posting from my computer. This worked fine until last week.

    So you're saying that when you try to post a pick using the URL option you get a pop up box that says:

    error: Remote file is too large

    Is that correct?

    Looks like you figured it out.

    It got me for the longest time as well. I got around it by doing it the long way by actually typing [img] <photo URL> [/img] around it. You can also post GIFs the same way.

    I miss my dog.
    It does seem odd that I was posting fine from my own computer and all of a sudden, last week, that didn't work anymore. Computers!

    Checking that box turns the URL picture into an attachment, most of which are too large.
