Hi there,

Now when you say that are you saying they can't upload them, or post a link?

Okay, check your security on your forum and see if you restricted them too.

No, because one of the complaining members has posted images before, he claims it only works sometimes or something like that? Another guy just said he is having no luck posting pictures either.

I seen that. Perhaps it is just a coincidence these two members are having problems. Do you know of a detailed tutorial or post of how to pictures on forumotion forums.?

Haha no. I am only a 'helper' I have no staff powers and therefore can't do a thing about all the spam that happens. Don't worry, though, it's common during this time. I appreciate that, though.

Are you sure that image isn't corrupted?

Thanks again. I just enjoy helping others.

Try several images on your computer to see if it does bring up that error.

Ok, it worked. It must have been that single image. What should i tell my two members having problems? i will make a in-depth post on how to post pictures I guess.

And if the world had more people like you, this place would be a much better place to live. Thanks Draxion.
