Default Pic posting

Trying to post pics (that I host myself). They show up in my preview, but not when a thread is posted? Weird?


Anyone know why? Can't seem to find any rules of not being able to post pics anywhere. Not many posts, but I've lurked a while (was a long-time member of watch-U-reek, till it seemed their rules trumped everyone posting anything, so I left while the getting was good...)


Anyway, would be nice to show off some stuff...

Tom, yeah that is weird, but it's actually still strange trying to post pics.


The insert image icon at the top of the screen can work, but it's not easy,
and should be right?! So what I often do is copy from another forum the
picture, or pictures. But you can get the image to show up if the link to
you picture looks something like this.

Here is an example, say the link looks similar to this right below...

https://i.imgur.com/PDlL4zf.jpg?1

It then needs to have [img] to the left of the https: and then [/img] to the right of the jpg?1

..and then it will look like this here...



I know it's weird. Honestly am not too good with all of this, but hope this
helps, or maybe someone else can lend a hand too.

Just join a photo hosting site, like Flickr for example. Create a username and password and you're ready to upload your pics into the new library you've just created. Click on any of your library's images and it's a snap to share on forums, etc.

It's free. And best of all no one has to click on any tiny and often finicky thumbnails to view your watches!

i couldn’t get more than a thumb on Tapatalk and never figured out Imgur, Flicker works great although i haven’t found a way to post from my iPhone, it posts a link. The app on my phone is simple; when uploading i get a Flicker choice icon just like email or text choices. But then i use my laptop to post.

I'm no expert but have used several and for whatever reason just prefer Flickr.

Where are you posting images? Can you link a thread?

What browser/OS/device?

Are you using your own hosting site? Is it HTTP instead of the needed HTTPS?

Are you posting using the attachment manager?
