Dog-
It used to be pretty easy to see what mistakes were being made in the UBB code, because in the old version you could click "edit" on anybody's post. You could not make any changes, but you could see just how it was typed out to identify the error. With the Infopop update, though, only the actual author can click edit now. So I can't tell you what you are doing wrong, I can only tell you what to do:

[*IMG]http://pets.jpg[/IMG]

is exactly how it should be EXCEPT LEAVE OUT THE *, and of course, put in the actual URL your picture is. Be sure, also, to get the URL of the picture, not of the page the picture is on. There's two ways to do this: One is to right click on the picture, click "properties", and then cut and paste the URL. The other is to click on the picture, and then cut and paste the URL that shows up in the address bar.

Hi! You'll notice I fixed it - you had an extra / where you didn't need one!
