I can't upload pictures, not even a small one(30kb). Tried normal and classic uploader. The spinning wheel shows but that's it.
Any ideas? Using windows XP and IE8. Also tried android tablet, didn't work either.

I tried it with an existing file from Photobucket and got this error message:

"The following errors occured: http://i92.photobucket.com/albums/l18/IndianHeat101/billy_idol.jpg: Upload failed due to failure writing temporary file."

Any ideas?
Before the website changed uploading pictures from my local disk worked. And I don't want my pictures public on tinypic.

I was contacted by a handful of people yesterday concerning the inability to post pictures. Here's the lowdown:

You need to use a 3rd party service like PHOTOBUCKET to host your pictures, then link the URL of those pictures to a thread here on the site. For example, go to www.photobucket.com (http://www.photobucket.com) and create a FREE account, upload your pics, open a pic, take the URL address of that pic (COPY AND PASTE is the easiest), create a new thread here, select the INSERT PICTURE option in your thread, go to the URL option (not the UPLOAD PICTURE option) and then paste that URL into the spot that opens up when you select INSERT PICTURE and it should display your pic right in your newly create thread.

There are a number of services besides Photobucket that work great with VBulletin, Facebook also being one of them. If you have any specific questions, feel free to post them here and I'll check back regularly. But for now, here's an example of linking from Facebook.
