Pure frustration - a question about inserting images
Nov 18, 2012

Hi gang...

I'm a long time poster on DPReview (over 10 years now - over 14,000 posts) and I've never had issues with posting - although I absolutely loathe this new forum format (subjective, I know).

Up until 2 days ago, I've had no issues - but starting yesterday, I'm unable to insert images into a reply or for a new post. I keep all of my images on Photobucket, but regardless of how many times I'll copy and paste the URL information for the image into the "Insert Web Image" window, it constantly gives me the following error message:

"An error has occurred. The URL is not a valid URL."

So then, just to be safe, I triple checked everything and the URL is correct - even when typed in - but I still get the same error message.

Then I try a half-dozen other browsers such as IE 9, Firefox, Chrome, Chromium, Slim Browser, Avant Browser, and Opera - all to no avail. I can post, but whenever I try to insert an image, I get the above error message. Again - this all began yesterday.

Any ideas - is this occurring with others also?

Have a great one....
