It's not a valid address to the phpbb root. It must be on your sever.
When I suggest that you should alter your files, BACKUP them BEFORE.

Reason: Incorrect advice removed - it needs to be relative to the phpBB root directory, not another website.

Link me to your board, maybe the image tag isn't parsed correctly.

As StefanL already posted, the image must be on the same server as the forum. You cannot point it to imageshack.
The address you enter must be relative to the directory phpBB is in, which is what is says right there on the screen.
