    To whom it may
    I started a thread in the builders forum and uploaded 8 pictures. While I can see these, I am told others cannot.

    I uploaded them from my hard drive, do I need to upload from Photobucket?

    I found the link for correctly uploading photos but when I click on it, I go back to the forum start up page.

    Can anyone shed light on this issue?

    Thanks in advance,

    Try dragging your pictures from a folder or your desktop to the upload window where it will change to "drop files to here to upload "-and drop them there.

    Also possible, they are not supported files-JPEGs are the best

      Hi Bob,
      Well, I clicked on upload files and picked from my hard drive. All formats are Jpeg. I even resized one to reduce pixel size so it would be accepted.
      Can you take a look and see if you can see the pictures.

        I don't know if it makes a difference-I don't click on upload attachments at all- I Drag the pictures from somewhere in my computer and drop them in the lower half of the window where it WILL say "Drop Files Here to Upload"

        (and that screen shot wasn't easy to do)

            What do you see in the above post #5-this one is "unapproved" and is the result of the way you say you are posting the pictures...I don't think that you can see it yet (It might need approval by the moderator)

              Since that hack about six months ago, VBulletin is very picky about posts. It's completely software driven.

              I don't know what their algorithm is searching for, but lately I see a lot of good posts get flagged as "unapproved". I've since approved your message, but even when I was doing that, the photos weren't showing up for some reason.

              Try again?
