Image Posting Suggestion

Postby RevanFan » Fri Mar 04, 2016 6:13 pm

As we would like to save bandwidth for the site and decrease the chances of images being lost, please strongly consider using an outside source when posting images, such as imgur.com, rather than attaching them inline to posts. If you have any questions, please ask. Thanks.

Would you be willing to post a step-by-step for imgur.com?

I plan on posting more images in the future and since I've never used a site like that....it'd help me out

I apologize for my ignorance

At the top you'll see a blue button that says "upload images." Click that --> browse your computer --> select your image(s). Once you have your image(s) selected, hit "start upload".

Right, I know that part.....again, forgive my ignorance..

What I should have asked: How to get the image from there to here?

Just use the img tag when writing a post, and post the direct link to the image inside those tags.

I've heard of that one but have never used it. I find imgur very easy to interface with, and it's very easy to get the direct link. Either just click on the image, or look to the side after you upload. The direct link is provided for you. Plus imgur doesn't often delete images.

How often are images deleted on postimage?

My imgur links just stopped showing up...

I started hiding most of my Franchise Journal images behind spoilers, to make it easier to scroll through, thinking that readers could pick only the ones they want to see. That worked beautifully for a while, but when I hit the button for the last couple, it displays the link address, rather than the image. If I post them into my browser, the images display just fine, so I don't think it's a problem with imgur... what do you think? Did I start doing something wrong without noticing?

Here are some that worked fine: http://www.footballidiot.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=18486&start=30

It's because you didn't wrap the image location in [img] tags. Originally, you used just the [img] tags with spoilers; Now that you're using spoilers, it should look more like this:

Code: Select all
