posting photos from computer

  • UPDATE - The main upgrade is now finished. The site should now be functioning as normal, I will be making tweaks over the weekend, particularly to look of the site. If you notice something is broken or have any comments please let me know. Many thanks Matt (Lithril)

Suddenly - after years of being able to - I no longer have the option of posting photos from my computer, only from URL ... how do I get the old facility back?

Have you used photobucket John? Upload your photo's there then you can paste a link that is automatically created onto the forum. Its the IMG link you need to copy and paste.

I can upload too John - when you click the "Insert Image" button, do you get two tabs ("from URL" and "From Computer")?

I normally do not have to waste time on PB but can post direct.
You'll never waste your time on photobucket, at the least its free backup for when the things go breast up and you need to recover your photo's/data. I use all the free 'cloud' storage on offer plus of couse home network and off site with family. Its a small part of your back up routine which I'm sure as a prepper you use.

Good point - for important photos - and I do use PB but for a quick shot it is hardly worth the time....
And it seems to be only Mafros penny stove thread that I cannot post directly from my confuser....:confused:
