I pasted the URL to the avatar pic I would like, press submit and then the profile screen comes up with the URL place blank. Any suggestions? Thank you!

Instead of the URL link from Photobucket, copy and paste the direct link. HTH!

No, I don't think so (I'm not 100% on that, but since yours isn't working, I'm guessing you can't...?). Photobucket is free, so you can make an account there, upload your photo, and use that link if you'd like.

Can you copy and paste the link you are trying to use for your avatar photo? I need a bit more info to troubleshoot! Thanks :)

You need to use the Direct URL link, not the album view or any other link. Are you accessing Photobucket on your cell phone? I'm not very familiar with the Snapbucket feature on Photobucket, but somewhere there should be a list of image codes. It might be that you have to access the full Photobucket.com site, not the mobile one, to find the list of codes.

Here is what you are looking for. This is a screen shot taken from my album page in Photobucket. When you mouse over a photo, the menu below the picture pops up, and gives you options to share, or to copy and paste a code. You need to copy the Direct Link.

Hope that helps!
