It seems that due to the latest Browser updates some members are having difficulty in adding pictures.

What usually happens is instead of the proper file and path the browser will show 'fakepath'. If this happens to you, try the remedy below.

There is an alteration you can make to cure the problem.

Using XP and Internet Explorer as an example, go to

Start

Settings

Control Panel

Internet Options

Open Internet Options then select the Security Tab, click on Internet then the Custom level button. When that window opens scroll down until you find “Include local directory path when uploading files to a server” and click the“enable” button.

Click OK and agree to the changes, then close all the boxes down, re-start Internet Explorer if you already have it open and that should do the job.

The above changes can also be done directly in Internet Explorer, other Operating Systems and Browsers will have similar settings to be adjusted.

Did all this with no results. I am in U.S. using windows 7. Still trying.
