  • Can't insert images! Why?

    Hi there.

    Whenever I try to insert an image it looks like this:



    Why?

    I resized it, it has the right format and all that. But still it doesn't work. Not to speak about the option of managing attachments. This always fails when I try it. Don't know why and there's no error message at all. Just a hint that my it has failed to upload my file.

    Images don't end with ".htm". The image you linked to is not an image, it's a website.

    This is pretty standard stuff across many forums.

    Use the direct link url that ends with ".jpg", like this:




    Also, your sig size breaks forum rules. Maximum image signature size is 300px by 100px total.

      I think our attachment service doesn't work. Haven't tried it in years. Everyone uses other uploaders for stuff like that nowadays, like imgur.com.

        Thanks for your help.
        But actually I tried any available link that I could use. BB code, direct link, hotlink etc. Nothing worked until now. On the sudden all the pictures I've posted appear in my threads although there is absolutely nothing I changed or edited. Mysterious...

        Regarding the signature: I must confess I'm aware of that article 8, but I assumed the signature will be resized automatically as it happens in most forums. And then I saw even moderators here who have signature pictures larger than 300x100. E.g. regularcat who's signature is of 202x238. Isn't that against the rules too?
        Anyway I'm going to change that.

        Anyway I don'T get the point of this rule if it's allowed to insert pictures with a resolution of 3840 2160 or even higher...

        So I'm going to add another suggestion to this post: Implement a resize function for inserted images, signatures and everything else that needs to be resized.

          I looked at some of your old posts and they say "Last edited by regularcat" ... similarly edited just as how you edited your post above and listed "typo" as the reason. He did you the favour of going through your post(s) and changing the invalid image url you provided. So there is that mystery solved.

            That's sort of kind I guess.

            But still, I'd bet my ar*e that I tried every kind of link I was given by that upload page. I know, "errare humanum est". But this only means I'm not human.

              Whatever you're alluding to the problem wasn't the forum. It was either the uploaded image being broken or the IMG code tag not being used properly.
