Still can't do photos

I have tried so many times to get the actual ribnet photo stuff to work, I've read and re-read the sticky but can't seem to get it working!!

Whenever I try to upload a couple of pics it says that there is a "Security token" missing, whatever that means! It is just frustrating because it means I have to use Photobucket which makes the photos appear huge by comparison to everyone else's, what should I do to make it work!?

can you talk us through what you are doing?
I suspect that you are trying to upload "massive" files.

so - how big are the files, have you resized them, what file type, what are you doing to try and attach them.

I've not seen that error before but would guess the same, if the file size is huge they won't automatically resize. You'll need to shrink them with an online resizer if you haven't got anything to do it.

Ok, thank you especially Martini, I suspect you are right that its because the file size is too large. I have found an online resizer thingy and this is going to be my first try at posting an image properly...


Edit: GREAT looks like it actually worked for the first time ever!!!
