around 3 years ago, I used to use Photobucket to change the photo into a code, and then I would paste the code into my profile, but Photobucket isn't opening for me anymore, I can't use my account or even open a new account, I'm not sure why, so is there any other place to convert the image into a code other than photobucket, please tell me in my inbox, thankyou, jonathan

You don't "change an image into a code" you upload an image to a website that hosts images and then you link to the image. Photobucket has an option to add the "code" used to display images on bulletin boards in the case of MM that means using IMG tags [ img ] URL [ /img ] without the spaces.

Photobucket still works for me. You can also use Flickr, imageshack, etc. Just google "free image hosting".

You can even link to an image in your portfolio.

Not in the free account.

But it does work to post profile pics in the forums.

The idea of forums is to share problems AND solutions. Please don't ask for a private answer when someone else may be looking for the same solution.

The OP is a Legacy member and a VIP so my instructions are correct.

OK.  Didn't know that.  There's a lot I don't know about that legacy stuff other than we get more photos for free,  or use to anyway.  Not sure If we still do.

Knew it worked for VIP, did not know about legacy. I missed out legacy by about 2 years.
