What Dotsie said - but they wouldn't work in my browser for some reason...

At a glance there sgt-angua I'd say you're missing the file-type for both those images - they need to end with either .jpg - .gif or (less likely) .bmp that need to go onto the end of each of your URLs. Without one of those file-type descriptives the photo can't be found as the addy is incomplete and the browser won't find what it recognises as an image...

Less likely (if adding the file thingie doesn't work) is that the URL is too long - some forums seem to spit long addys out for some strange reason.

Tony - I'm working on FAQs for something else just now and have something on posting images and how to avoid thread stretching to write/revise so I'll pass that along to you at some stage soon.

I think Facebnook members should be able to see these slightly altered links - however I don't have a Facebook account any more (long story) so I can't tell for sure. :)

That'll be why you can't see them. Facebook is after your soul. :lol:

:lol: :lol: :lol: Jan.
I use Photobucket for posting pics. I was recommended to it when I first came to forums, (only 3 years ago now, good heavens! :lol: ) It can be slow, but I find it OK.
Best wishes,

I also have spinal problems, but eventually I just decided to fully accept the pain and get on with life; took up Paragliding, never looked back. Well I did have a little glitch two years ago when a bloke in a car knocked me off my mountain bike!! Hmmm, how do I add pictures Tony?

If you have a Photobucket account or something similar, you can get a code to post here for any photos you've uploaded.

Failing that you could always email any photos to me at
Code: Select all
tonyblackwell261@hotmail.com
and I'll host them from my Photobucket account and send you the code.

Hope that helps Norris. :D

That goes for anyone who either doesn't have a photo hosting account or who doesn't feel confident in posting pictures. But Photobucket is free and fairly easy to use once you get the hang of it, so you might want to consider getting an account. :wink:
