    I have an album on SmugMug. When I click the img button, I get a box asking for the url of my photo. I enter it and say ok. I get this funny little box in my message and when I press preview, a red x shows up and I can't see my picture. Any pointers or directions greatly appreciated.

    I don't know if you can directly link to photos at SmugMug.

    Have read the guidelines, followed instructions and boom - the red x. Don't know what I am doing wrong. When I press the img icon, I don't get [​IMG]

    You are supposed to paste your URL into that box and hit enter...then in makes the tags for you.

    Maybe try putting in the [​IMG] tags yourself.

    When inputing the address into the popup box make sure you are putting in the address to the picture and not the page. Most often you need to view the page, right click the picture, and then copy image location. Depending on yoru browser you might instead right click the image and go to properties and use the address there. It is this address you need to use and not the page address. (this might not be your problem but was my best guess :))
