Thanks for letting me know mate.  That is strange, they display fine on my laptop when I post 'em?  Looks like I will have to think again on this one, I've also got a flickr account so I'll just use that instead (when I get round to uploading my pics, of course...) :whistle:   I don't want to deprive you or anyone else of my, er, "interesting" collection :laugh:

Could be because you are logged in to that site with your browser so you're authenticated and can see them. Thems that's us who ain't authenticated on that site, we are shunned. Desperate folders indeed. Check that your images on that site are set to "public" or "anonymous access," meaning that anyone on the internet can see them if they have the link (i.e. the link is used on a forum).

Testing imgur. The app still doesn't do the bbcode so won't work easily everywhere :(

 

 

I don't think the app does it, but if you used a mobile browser to visit the site, you'd get it.  But the BBcode is easy peasy nice 'n cheesy. The forum recognizes and converts the classic IMG tag on the forum, so just wrap your URL to the images (e.g. http://imgur.com/blahblahbah/yadayadyada.jpg) with the IMG and /IMG tags contained in [square brackets]. Like this but with square not squiggly brackets: {img}http://imgur.com/blahblah/yadayada.jpg{img} and the forum software does the rest when you submit.

Most forums support the basic IMG tag so just knowing how to type it is easy. 

FWIW, when I pasted in a link to a real pic with {img} (not the real BBcode), the editor found the image by following the link, and then converted it to a pic right off. This could make it difficult if you want to append "s" or "m" or "l" to the filename to control the size of the image. Might have to edit it in another window or app. 

So if you don't want your image to be small, medium, or large, just paste the image link in, and watch the editor do its magick.

Thanks for the tip mate, I thought my pics were set to public, but I might be wrong (wouldn't be the first time :laughing2dw:).  I'll have a play with flickr next week and see if that works any better.

Oh, okay. The editor has been changing what I typed (below) to what works in this forum software. But what the editor converted it to above works as well. A little bit easier. Take your pic.

There's a liability to being an old fart who remembers 14.4 kbps modems (heck, my first was a 2400 BAUD modem), Mustang BBS software, QWK mail and forum packets and reader/editors. Se habla MNP-5.

 

Anyone here ever use Qmodem? Loved that software. Crosstalk was pretty good, too.
