    I google images and successfully download them to my iPad. Then, I open Photo bucket and "upload" successfully. but when i try to link to ADVrider, I'm unable to copy the URL; is every image is somehow protected and that doesn't allow for linking? is this new? Any ideas? Am I messed up? :lol3

    Usually, when I want to use an image from the net, I right click on the image, click on properties and highlight the web address. I then right click on the highlighted web address and click copy. Then when posting on any forum, I click "add image" and paste in the box.

    I only use Photobucket for photos I've taken, so I don't have a solution for doing it that way.

    You might be snagging the wrong line of code to get your images to appear in ADV:

    Here, this might help, couple screen shots showing the code line to COPY and PASTE into your ADV posting.

    Was this what you were wondering about or having issues with?

    I just copied this in from photobucket.

    Hit the photo, it will put up a Save or Copy option.
    Hit save, come to ADV, open the yellow box, backspace the http, then paste.

    My screen shots were from Photobucket, showing the code lines.

    I think the OP was askin about Photobucket, that was why i went in that direction :evil

    Now I have to trump your Suzuki image with a dang KLR image, you know that, right?

    I think photo bucket changed some of its layout/features to make things easier. They work, once you realize that the old, difficult way of doing things has been eliminated. :lol3.

    Thanks for the help, I appreciate it!
