Why is it that I can add a photo to a post, and then look at it, but be unable to see anything except "the red x" later? Why can some people view the photo, but not others? This makes me crazy sometimes.

Re: Problems with Pix on Boards
If I right click on the red X then go to properties and copy the address and go to the address and look at the pic, when I come back to the post, the picture then appears, but the other two were still red Xs, until I did the same to each of them.
DT, I have the same problem sometimes. I must admit that I did cut and paste the address via properties to see your Progreso photos. On the bb screen, only red X here too. The gif I posted under the MAW thread, I was able to see, once, but now is a red X also.
The problem is in the HTML code that the Phorum program is generating. It is putting a tag
that the browser does not understand at the end of a line. Then the next line correctly inserts an IMG tag with the correct path to the picture. Unfortunately, your browser gets confused with the incorrect tag and won't show the picture. I copied the source and removed the
and the picture magically appeared.
Until they get it fixed, try posting the pictures without hitting the "return" key before inserting the image. That may work.
