How do I post a photo?  I have a picture I'd like to add to an existing topic.

Host it on Flickr, Photobucket, etc. (you'll need an account with an image hosting provider) and then embed in your reply with the correct bbcode - most image hosts will generate the code and provide it for you to cut and paste, or there's a button in the reply toolbar that can help generate the code.

Flickr can be a bit fiddly to use as the image host for a first time user, photobucket or Imageshack will be easier.  The easiest way to post the image is to use a direct web link to the image, ie "www .imageshack.com/mypicture" and add the IMG tags
Code: [Select]
[img][/img] at start and end - thus:
Code: [Select]
[img]www.imageshack.com/mypicture.jpg[/img]
If you copy the link to your post, you can highlight the link with your mouse (like you would for copy / past) and then click the "Insert image" button on the forum tools (the one directly above the first smiley face). If you hover the mouse over the buttons it will tell you what each one does.

Hope that helps.  :)

can you just copy and paste straight into your post using either the spoiler or insert image icon ?
If it wasn't for the last minute, nothing at all would ever get done!

Yes, if by that you mean - copy the "www. website address. com / picture" and paste it into the bit were you type the post, then highlight the whole address (left click mouse, drag to select text) and then click the "insert image" icon.  ;)

If you want an image to be hidden beneath a spoiler tag, do the above then select the whole address again (including the IMG tags) then click the "spoiler" icon.


Does that answer your question?  :)

You have to have a host for the image.

A message posted on the forum is a collection of letters/characters only - it can't contain an actual image file, only instructions where the forum software can go find it in order to display it.

I've just started to read this comic & ok, it's different, but enjoyable.

It gets funnier as time moves forward. After Ch. 40-something it does get a bit NSFW, as it is an edgy subject. But I'll be darned if this is not the funniest manga I've ever read.

But maybe so, but shouldn't we be getting back to the subject in question?  ;D

I seem to be having some trouble posting images from Imgur.  This is the code I tried to use:




What am I doing wrong?

ETA:  Tried modifying one with a "jpg" ending as per Maets' recommendation.  We'll see ...

You got to get the address that ends in JPG. Use preview in BG.

Good morning, ladies and gentlemen.
I can't figure out how to post a photo from facebook using the

Here's the link
https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=565277913634746&set=gm.1761517954067874&type=3&theater
What bits do I need to alter to fit this in the and make the photo show, not the link?

Thanks!

Is Facebook the reason so many pictures simply aren't even showing up since the forum went down? I can tell by spacing and the comments of people who did see them that they successfully loaded, at least briefly, but now there's not only no photo but no link.

I'm having the same problem with videos. They're on the page (or were), but unless the external link is showing so I can click off-site none of them are viewable.

It's my impression that the Grimoire of Visages is one of the more difficult sites to use for this. They want you to share everything with them, but they don't want to share anything.

Good morning, ladies and gentlemen.
Thank you so much for the comments.
I'll have to settle for using the external links to the Grimoire des Visages.
What a shame I thought there must have been something clever to do  to have the image show directly here.
I'll have to get an account for a sharing site.
Imageshack? Or is there a better one these days?

In Firefox right click on the image > copy image location > paste in a reply here, then wrap in image tags.

Only if the Spoiler opens...which is doesn't, for some reason...

Is this another glitch from the outage? In addition to completely random (or so it seems) pictures missing, some spoilers open and others don't.
