    Are you using a new version of firefox by any chance? There have been a few editing issues with the newest update.

    You're welcome!

    Ok, your version of Firefox is the one that's having the issues! Our lovely JCF tech support crew is working on resolving the issue.
    Here is where you can see how it's going. Once they fix it I'm sure they'll post a message there. :)

    Ananta Chetan, that's not normal. You're using Firefox, right? It's a known error of Firefox, which has problems to read the forum software correctly at the moment - it used to work well until a few weeks ago. Until Firefox and/or forum software gets updated, you need to go through the 'more options' to be able to edit your post.

    Edit: I should have read the next page as well. So basically... What Volshe said. ;)
    Oh, and I was going to edit in the link Volshe give you above already.

    Greetings AV-

    Another question... Can one copy and paste an image into a post or does it have to be a URL? For example, if I have a picture on my computer, can I include that in a post? I pasted a photo into a post recently but when I posted it, it was not there... only the text.

    Sorry for the computer-geek questions... :p

    If it's already on the internet yes. But if it's not uploaded yet then no. You will have to use a website that hosts images such as photobucket.com then you will be able to post your images.

    Ananta Chetan, no problem. This is the best place to ask those questions. :)

    Did all your questions about posting pics got answered? If not, this thread (see #4) might help you as well. :)

    Rainbow Knight Star, I can see that you added a pic, but the pic itself doesn't show up. There's just a placeholder instead.

    Not sure, what went wrong, but it seems that the letters "[ IMG ]" itself is a pic...

    I don't know what to do. I typed [​IMG]

    Just like the BB Code page says. I'm open for suggestions.

    [face_frustrated]

    Bardan_Jusik Any ideas? You're always posting pics. How do you do it? Will you demonstrate with spaces? Please?

    :D

    Thanks, Skiara...

    I was trying to make a SW gif using that "gifsoup.com" site, and I got almost to the end (a page appeared with the gif, and it was moving) but then the whole page seemed to keep freezing up (I tried it multiple times) and I was trying to see if I could post the gif anyway by just linking to the frozen gifsoup.com page. But then the link that appeared in my post here only brought up the previous gifsoup.com page, which had the whole YouTube clip I was using as the source for the 2-second gif (instead of just the gif itself).

    No biggie. Maybe I'll try fooling with it again sometime later. Though I guess if anyone happens to read this post at some point and has run into this issue with the "gifsoup.com" site or has any general tips about using that site, they could post about it here and tag me.:)

    Pensivia, I don't use animated gifs, but it might be that it's disabled anyway. So even if you're doing everything correctly, it won't show up.

    LAJ_FETT, it's disabled, right?

    I've seen animated posts posted in threads. But you can't use gifs or animated gifs in your signature, I remember they disabled it because it caused everything to run super slow. Depends on where he's attempting to post the animated gif...

    I believe animated gifs are not allowed as avatars but I know I've seen them in posts. Perhaps the site was at fault.
