I should probably leave this for smarter people than me that are on here but how exactly did you post? Meaning, did you use an image straight from your computer or do you use a site such as flickr?  I believe flickr (and such sites) is the preferred method.
And when using that little icon for posting (the little Mona Lisa), did you use the html code or the BBC code? (HTML code is the one also preferred)
I am not aware of any problems at this point in time but I haven't tried posting anything today to be honest.
Hopefully we can get this little hiccup taken care of!
Take your camera with you dammit. You can't take your next "best photo" if your camera is sitting at home in the bag, now can you?

Isn't BBCode the one that works from Flickr?

OK, so that worked


One question - how many/how big were they if you were trying to upload them using the forum function? There is a limit of 25 images (doubtful you would have hit that) but the other limit is 8000k - which isn't much if your photos are quite large.

Personally, I just right click on the image and hit "Copy Image Address" and then paste that between the IMG tags.  I just thought it was an HTML code.  ::shrugs::

I agree about the 8K limit.  A lot of people will try to directly embed their photos from their desktop/laptop and it quickly goes over the allotment.  Not saying this was the case, but it IS pretty common for newer people until they get the hang of what works best.

Haha - yeah I don't pay attention to what's there, it just seems to default to what I need :P

I always paste the BB code but I know you can use the other code as well.

My personal guess is the 8000K limit. I know that plenty of people try to post files that are much larger and they get exactly what you got in the end.
