    I've been trying to post up a for sale post but having a wee bit of a problem. I upload the images using your 'add image' button, they appear to have loaded each saying 100% but when I preview my sale post they don't appear. I remember a while back I presumed they'd just appear when they didn't show in preview so clicked post and they didn't appear at all.

    I've also tried clicking the image option in the text and putting the URL in there from my photobucket, but that doesn't seem to work either, just get a little red cross coming up.

    Any idea's or advice anyone? Seem to have the same problem from my laptop & tablet.

    Thanks in advance :)

    Just use imgur and embed the images into your post

    The red cross probably means the wrong link is being copied (Or Photobucket aren't behaving)

    ** In the selection of links below, the IMG & IMG thumbnails are in the right format, they display correctly for me in the EDIT POST screen, but when posted the IMG link goes to a red cross and the IMG thumbnail works - I blame Photobucket!!! **

    You need the real hotlink to the actual photo, many links realy act as linking to Photobuckets web page

    The following are different link versions of the same photo on photobucket:

    Weirdly, when I posted the examples my IMG link showed an X and only the IMG thumbnail worked
    Currently they are both showing correctly!

    If in doubt use the IMG link that should work and let people see your sale items in the thread, and if you get an X then add the IMG thumbnail
