Can't add picture to post

Postby ClivePhoto » Tue May 26, 2015 4:15 pm

Another one for your todo list I'm afraid.

Don't know if it's me, though I'm sure I've managed to add a jpeg to a post before, but when I try to drag a jpeg into the message box it just opens the image up in the browser window. It doesn't seem to add it to the post.

Is it better to put a link to your Flickr image using the <Img> button on the message tool bar? Certainly on the Russian Truck forum we have a very low size for attachments and encourage everyone to put pictures up by linking to a photo hosting site, saves a massive amount of forum bandwidth usage. Maybe that is what is happening here?

The who on the what? I've put a link to a Flickr album, it seems to work.

I've also noticed as I wander through the forum looking at older posts that all the images have gone which makes them meaningless. Maybe the link method is better, at least for so long as the poster maintains their flickr account.

Cheers.

That is the downside to the link method but the option is the website owner having huge annual hosting costs for the photo content, no easy way. I agree, it's a shame when the photos disappear

I use PhotoBucket, which works in a similar way to Flikr. They host the files & you just copy & paste links to them into your posts. Tons of storage for free and nothing to stop you having multiple accounts if you run out of space. Also multiple ways to share links, depending on what you want to use them with.

Sorry to bring this old post back up, but I'm getting a bit frustrated. Whenever I try to upload a picture (this time 140k size) and press "add the file" the screen goes off with the error message:

This web page is not available

ERR_CONNECTION_RESET

after trying 10 to 20 times it eventually uploads the picture. Anyone else has that problem?
