    I was in a thread tried to post a jpg and it said I post a type not approved by the forum. I see jpg's all the time what am I doing wrong?

    Hi Roro,
    This has happened to me too.
    It has something to do with the URL address of the image.
    It goes to a site that is not approved, probably due to copyrights.
    Just try a different image and I'm sure it'll work.

    You can't copy and paste?
    I'm sure you tried that.
    I don't use facebook although I know how.
    Getting to the URL is the trick...
    Jason might have the solution..imgur.com
    You upload pix to that and it gives them a URL.

    Roro,
    I just tried to copy and paste from a facebook site and it worked for written text!
    Please try this.

    Highlight what you want to copy...
    Come back here and paste...

    No. I'd been having trouble with my phone posting pictures. I found one I thought was funny. (Simon acting juvenile instead of ugly) and posted it.

    If it offends I can remove it.

    ok Im not sure how they put it on face book. If I click to high light it opens in another window, then if you click on it to highlight it; it goes to another short article like flipping thru pictures one click and a new pic shoes. it will not allow one to highlight, I tried going to link and it wont let me highlight. So I guess im giving up I have open it probably 40 times and tried something different each time it is beyond
    my knowledge. I think I will open a .doc and type it in and see if that works thanks so much for all the help Im been giving.

    Roro, It's the site that's not allowing their stuff to be copied.

    I'll bet if you try it with something else , it would work...

    (no response necessary -- I've run into this problem)
