    I am having a problem with my sig picture. The picture dosen't show up. Instead, i get a link leading to it (see below). How do i get it to show up without the link? I did put image tags around the URL, but i still get a link.

    Links like those can't be used.

    Try hosting on stuff like Angelfire and Sig-X.

    If you think about it, using an uploaded image on BF makes the server work harder because it requests from the server itself, so it makes sense not to allow it.

    Either that, or that isn't possible. ;)

    So my picture is not allowed to show up? If i host it on Sig-X and upload it again, will it work?

    The stuff after the .php, I think, isn't allowed.
