I get a red 'x' in a box instead of the jpg picture when I download some posts.

Solution anyone?

Thankx

StanStanIt usually means that for some reason, you've been denied access to the site hosting the photo. Sometimes posters post pictures from sites requiring a password and user ID, for example, and you, an innocent outsider, don't have that info, so you get only a red "x". Usually complaining to the poster will help matters. ;)

I routinely put up an image for a while then remove it when it's no longer needed. I pay for my websites so I can't afford to fill them with redundant material. once the topic has been dead for a few weeks, I reclaim the webspace.
