OK I'm new here, but I have scads of eye candy you guys might enjoy. I don't seem to have the posting images thing down pat. I had thought if I click the IMG button, and paste the URL of the image between the brackets, that would do the trick, but no dice. I failed to burn incense to the IT department, I guess. Apologies in advance because I know there is a probably a post on this already but in my 34 seconds of rooting around I could not find it.

Image posting tips?

hmmm... that should work. Like this:

Image

You can upload them by using the Upload Attachment file like this:
Attachment:
ITCrowd.jpg


Or you could just post a link if the images are public.

Have you tried turning it off and then on again?


You do not have the required permissions to view the files attached to this post.

You need a higher level permission to upload attachments.

The bbcode IMG or resize image should work. The url has to go directly to the image and can't be piped through a dynamic link.

This seems a little counterproductive to me....it seems a site like this would want to promote the posting of images and not make it a hoop to jump through IMHO....

So looking for somewhere to host the images I want to post here that will work...... any suggestions?

We are more of a community of people than a site promoting something or desiring to host public images in exchange for advertising revenue.

It is typical of the other forums I participate in that uploading of attachments is limited to full members. It is what separates us from USENET.

Then /s followed by /x


Won't that change the buttons we have to push when we need a batch of Blood of the Kapalua Tiki?

Remember the Chip.me upgrade from Chip.NT?

While it seems to be one of the very few Yahoo! services with any life left in it, I rather like Flickr, especially since it easily allows you to generate BBCode tags for posting things in forums like this one, allowing you to select the sizing, etc, and linking back to the Flickr page if anyone wants to see more pics, more detail, etc.

For example:

Flickr has been my choice since Photobucket has gone to a model where they charge if you want to use the images you put there on another site. My go-to had been photobucket before then.

in full disclosure, Flickr has become less cool, as you now have to pay for what you got for free (for a period of time), but then again, there was a period of time when I paid for a yearly account. Bottom line, I hope Flickr doesn’t tank, as most of my online photos are hosted thru teh Fluxkrz

OK it just so happens I have an old flickr account I've not used in ages but can load up some stuff there. Here's a test, and image from my room at the Hukilau room crawl:

Image

and link to same image

https://www.flickr.com/photos/miramarle ... 151829649/


OK I give up, I'll get with Bohemian here in town and see if he can show me what I'm doing wrong.....

If you go to that page, there's a little "Share" icon (a curved arrow) at the bottom right. Click that, and you get this little box:

Image

Select "BBCode", and a size (either of the "Medium" options works well) and just copy and paste the code:

If do that, I get:

ImageRoom 235 by Scott, on Flickr

I usually trim off the last part (the second URL tag).
