    When I upload or e-mail photos to my Photobucket account I am given code to post the images in this and in other forums that I visit. I usually use the IMG code in these brackets: [ ]

    On my PC the code works, but on my iPad I can't even copy the code from the Photobucket site. When I touch it it says "copied" but when I try to paste it here nothing happens.

    I tried typing it out and the code failed.


    Advice please.

    Yeah, I've had trouble with that too.

    What you want to do is go to that screen and:

    1. Click the image to enlarge it fully.

    2. Go to the URL box and copy it.

    3. Come back to the forum post composition window and paste it in.

    4. Add the IMG tags manually at the beginning and end.

    It's a bit more cumbersome, but it does the job. I believe that Photobucket uses javascript for that auto-copy box and it doesn't work on iPhone's or iPad's.

    Let me know if that helps.
