That sounds like you're doing everything right, but there's an issue with the link. Try another image?

I have been having similar problems, it either gives that message or it doesn't matter how much smaller I resize the image in photobucket, it still posts it absolutely huge!
Preferred Cinema's now Paignton or Exeter!

I needs to end in .jpg, .png, etc. If you're hotlinking a pic from say Twitter, Twitpic scrambles the link URL so you can't hotlink it. Same with some websites.

There's an error with Photobucket that means it doesn't show the resized image (or the smaller image if reuploading a smaller version with the same name) even when you do a hard refresh. Best thing to do is to resize it on your computer and reupload it to PB under another name than you did before so the actual link you use will change as well. That should be the smaller version.

Yes, it is so frustrating, however much I resize it says it is too big! Thanks c_t - I do it before I upload next time.

I am having problems using this site on my Android mobile and was wondering if I'm alone in this and/or there's a way to fix it.

I've never been able to click on the buttons such as "report", "quote" or "pm" (they just don't appear) and I can also not hit "reply" in my inbox which basically means I cannor send any PMs.

This morning I was also unable to enter any text in the big blank field at the bottom of a thread. It wasn't my keyboard as I opened a new window and was able to type on another site just fine.

Any suggestions?

Presumably its the built in browser you're talking about. So, install a different browser and use that instead. I suggest Opera Mobile.

However before doing that I suggest powering down your mobile completely and even go as far as removing the battery for a few seconds. This will ensure that all running apps will have stopped and turning it on again will be like rebooting your pc. (You were describing a progressive fault.)
