:scratch: That is unusual. I can't immediately think what the problem might be. Any ideas?

This page explains a possible cause and solution.

Since the size check works for the other image in my sig, this might not be the problem actually. Maybe the server host (Small Orange) allow the url_fopen thing only for trusted sites, and Photobucket is on that list (it's a well-known image hosting site), while Backloggery isn't?

More info can be found in this long thread on the phpBB3 support forum.

I've just had a quick look, but can't locate the php.ini file. I don't have much time to fiddle with it right now, but will have a look later. You may be right about the url_fopen. Maybe you could upload your imagine into a Photobucket account and see if you can get it to load into your sig that way?

It would probably work, but then I'd have to repeat the process every time I update what I'm playing on Backloggery..

Now to show how completely computer illiterate I am....how do I place a photo from my computer in a comment on the forum? I know how to do links to sites, but not just a jpg file from my computer. I see an IMG button, but I don't get how it works.

You have to post the picture from your computer to a free hosting site. Some of us use Picasa, and some use Photobucket, once you've done that then use the URL with the IMG tabs on the forum. We all had to learn, nothing wrong with that.

Ok, thanks Deej. I have done that before. I just thought there might be an easier way.

Having a forum with the "upload file" option is just asking for trouble. Deej has enough of that without purposely adding to it. LOL
