Default Uploading a picture to a post

At the moment wattflyer gives this message when trying to load a picture into a post.
Paint3.JPG:
This is not a valid image file.
Yet that very same file has been added to a post on wattflyer before!
It gives the same message on bmp files.

Is this a fault or has something changed?

Don Sims said they are looking into it but this has been discussed in another thread. I load pics into my Blog on RCG and then copy the image to here. That gets around it. Like this.. Use . Copy Image Address

https://static.rcgroups.net/forums/a...14.15%20am.png Just put [img] and [/img]at the beginning and end of the script.

We've reported the issue several times to IB since they took over and the problem keeps getting worse. Hope this time they can fix it for us.
Sorry for the frustration and thanks for continuing too support WF!

I expected a ribbing from Don for mentioning the 'other' site but they are useful for some things

Hey Guys,

I reported this to our tech team last week. Once I get some updates I'll let you all know.

Another problem seems to be that you can't change an Avatar picture either for the same reason.
