Thanks, WHIZ - and as Greater New York residents will tell you "Nothing Beats The W(H)IZ"

One of my favorite "Seinfeld" episodes revolved around Elaine unknowingly dating "The Wiz".

May I suggest that when you post your image link don't highlight and click on the "Insert Hyperlink" button. Instead, highlight the entire URL then click on the "picture frame" icon int the tool bar. This way we don't have to struggle with imgur to have a look at your eQSL and it will be part of your post.

For me, imgur does not work in my browser. I get a quick flash of a menu at the top then a black screen. Bali_Frank's, Skipmuck's and Radio Star's imgur links work well. Bali_Frank's are the best.

Thanks for the tips, Signit.  I have read all the instructions from past postings and just tried what you suggested - nothing posts when I do your hints, just tried again. I never click hyperlink button and have tried picture frame, can't figure it out.  If it matters, I use Firefox.  It has been as frustrating to me as you.  I greatly appreciate you taking the time to share ideas.  :D

I if you can't get Imgur to work, try Imgbb. I use it and it is totally free with no account required.

1. Go to https://imgbb.com/
2. Click on the blue "start uploading" button.
3. Upload an image
4. Select “BBCode full linked” under the “Embed codes”
5. Copy the link
6. Paste in link in your post

Beautiful, maybe Bali_Frank, Skipmuck or Radio Star can tell us how they get imgur to work properly. imgbb worked like a charm and appears to be painless to use.

Should make it a Sticky Topic at the top of this thread so that it is easy for everyone to find.
