Ok, I have a working urlfor a picture for the forum here, and, it doesnt seem to want to work. I've tried to url manually, it works. The pic is .jpg format. I've seen other of this format, such as Merlin's. Any idea what's wrong?

I'm not quite sure, but doesn't geocities.com sometimes restrict outside links?

Hmm.. that may be it, and I also noticed my image is only 73x45 pixels.. and all the others are 80x80 exactly, so that may be it too.

The pixel-size isn't the problem, it will just stretch the image to fit if it's not 80x80 (which is why mine looks so messed up). It's almost certainly GeoCities.

Geocities gives you that annoying generic "don't link from here" picture though....

I had a similar problem with my pic. It worked fine at first, then suddenly it got replaced with the Angelfire logo for some reason.

Both Geocities and AngelFire don't allow you to host files on their servers for use on other websites. http://www.hostmysig.com is made for that purpose, so it's a good idea to use that.
