Can't post pictures

  • Hey Guest, We've had to cancel our 2020 Summer BushMoot PLEASE LOOK HERE for more information.
Hahaaa! not just a troublesome git, but a pretty face too!
Judging by that picture delusional too.

So now for the proof of the pudding. a trial run and pasting a picture from my account at DeviantART into a thread here. Wish me luck, I'm using the process as described by our resident jester.

Done the right click thing and copied the file info with image. UNCHECKED the remote button, think I forgot that aspect last time I tried, and here we go at previewing the posting...



GASP! :notworthy Southey I bow to your brilliance! And I take back that comment about you being delusional, Thanks pal :beerchug:

Hi,
Can anyone give me any clues to why I cant post pictures?
I have done previously with out any problems. I have re sized, tried uploading from flicker and my pc but just get a red exclamation mark next to the pic id on the upload window. If i hover the mouse over this it says undefined?
Help please!


Cheers, Stuart
Same here... can't upload images from PC which should be box-standard function...

Paul.

See post #20. Use a medium like photobucket, flickr, imageshack, etc. to store your pics ... :rolleyes:
Cheers Ahjno - Other forums with a similar bushcraftUK format allow image uploads direct from PC so I had assumed it would be the same here. I have a flickr account, I'll use that.

We've set it up so that FM's can load directly to the site as well as Mods, Admin etc. Resource wise images and other attachments soon add up to a large amount of space and then resource in displaying them, external hosting allows pages to load faster and saves our resources.
Anyone that wants to be able to load directly to the site can support the site through a subscription.

We will be reviewing how we do things (as we do now and then) so this might change but at the moment that's how things are :D

I am going to try again, I have just put some photos onto my Picasa (google) account, so here goes:

View attachment 6890

Ok, that worked. I went to the picture in the album and right-clicked the photo and clicked on copy image address and then pasted it into the space on from url in the photo icon

I have just encountered the problem where I have been loading up images with no problem and now can't.
I think it might be to do with personal file size limits on the forum.
Is that so?
Can I delete old pictures to rectify it?

Yes you can:

Go to: Settings (top right) >> My Settings (on the left, scroll down) >> under Miscellaneous: click Attachments.

You'll get a page with all the pics you've uploaded to the website.

Tick the ones you want to delete.

Click: Delete Selected (bottom right).

Sorted
