Pigsy, is the BB able to pick-up .gif files? Thanks.

Hi Hill, it certainly does pick up gifs - but you need to make sure the link is valid. If you try that link for the gif in a browser it asks for your MSN web community login, that's why it doesn't work. YOu need to make sure the gif is stored somewhere you don't need to be logged in to access. Hence the earlier problem with an ADVFN chart not working.

Cheers,
Piggs.

Thank's pigsy. So, what you are saying is that I need to put my files an a site that does not use browsers?

Also, isn't 'harrythecat' accessed via browser. I also had trouble linking to that site, but managed on a previous occasion. Thanks.

Sorry, just testing the link. Please ignore. It'a a 'harrythecat' link that worked on the stop loss thread.

Hill,

Just to clear up the confusion, the image needs to be accessible from a web site which does not require you to login ( but it must be accessible from a browser). To test any image, just open up your browser and go to the url. If it asks for a login before seeing the image.. then using the image in a post won't work (because you have to be logged in to access the page it resides on). Sometimes, sites use cookies (which reside on your computer) which store information about you, so you don't have to login - as it gets the info from the cookie on your computer. That's when it can get confusing because although you don't get a login prompt, everyone else does if they havent been to the site and registered.

Hope this helps to explain.

Cheers,
Pigsy.

Ok, but I'm still studying the cloudy ball.
