  • Post the entire link inside of <code></code> tags (use the [] keys instead of the <> keys when posting).

    I would imagine your link from photobucket has invalid text in it that is hiting mime trigger security.

  • Two things;

    1) that picture is too large to use as an avatar. It must be a maximum of 150x150, yours is 160x122
    2) in the 'upload from url' box all you need to put in there is the image link which is
    Code: Select all
