All,

I'm having trouble putting a pic up on the post, as we once could do.
Is this still possible, or does it have to be linked off site?
Sorry if the ans. is obvious, but I don't see any stickies for guidance...:blush:

Yep, you have to load it off-site and link back to here (with tags). That has been in place for almost 2 years now Paul! ;) Seanie.[img] tags). That has been in place for almost 2 years now Paul! ;)

I've notcied lately that I can't download my sketches directly onto the site from Flickr, is there a reason for this?

The size of the images conforms to the guidlines and I click on the image tag, but still no joy.

Programming today is a race between software engineers striving to build bigger and better programs, and the universe trying to produce bigger and better idiots. So far, the universe is winning.

Seanie,

I see Carl O managed to paste a few pics directly when posting to his thread 'The Sky @ Night trip'.

Now how would that have happened Seanie, I wonder? ;)

To post an image visible directly in the forum, one needs to upload it to some other site, such as flickr, and then past the url here.
Then you need to type some text at each end of the url, see example below:
[img]http://www.astroshot.com/IFAS/img explained.jpg
i.e the square brackets and the text contained therein needs to be typed at each side of the url exactly as shown in the example above.

It appears that the coding of the "Img" button needs to be fixed.
Instead of just saying "img" in the square brackets before the start of the url, it puts in: "img size=150"
This only seems to allow thumbnail images to be posted here and all other images get ignored.

Seanie/Darragh,
Can we fix the coding of the "Img" button so that this bug is rectified please?

Thanks,

Michael.
