Helpp with posting photos

on Sun Mar 25, 2018 6:28 pm
In need of some help in posting AAR photos here.  I've read the FAQ.  Tried to insert an image using the icon above, but no joy.  I recall there was a post in the old forum that gave good instructions, but I can't find any more info on the site.

Appreciate any help.

You have to upload your pictures to a hosting server before you can insert them here. Have you done that? The use the Insert Image icon and add the URL of your hosted picture.

Actually you can upload directly to this forum

Click the camera icon then select files or if already hosted elsewhere choose URL option instead.

I have no idea why that is showing twice though.
Find it a lot easier in desktop mode rather than mobile.

Yes, don't do that on your mobile for this forum. Also, you should not be able to upload photo's to the forum directly as that will max out the bandwith it no time, I will have to check that for a minute as that option is supposed to be disabled.

Thanks for advice.  I thought that was the way, using Imugr.  Will give it another try shortly.

OK, no joy. I uploaded photos to Imgur. Then I used the Insert Image icon above. It shows the (IMG)Https test but when I preview, no photo. WTF am I doing wrong?

Thanks for helping out a tech challenged old fogy!!

With your mobile you have insert the URL two times. I removed the double part and only one picture remains.

No wonder it does not work, you used img button with the webside showing all your pictures on imgur.         https://imgur.com/a/J5JWQ    

You must use the img button only with the picture. The webside for the picture ends with .jpg or any other image format. Thats your picture:         https://i.imgur.com/cuEICxr.jpg



I used your picture link with the image button. Many picture hostings sides also have links for the picture that can be copied into a forum. In this case the img button is unnecessary.

Jump over and look at the photos of Mike's great game at Cold Wars. I played the Soviet left. I thought the game was over when all those Mk IVs and Vs showed up on my left flank and promptly dispatched half my T-34s. Then an errant Katushya strike and a lot of 6s took out half of them and swung the pendulum back again.

Over on the far right, the T-34s ignored a minefield, but didn't live to tell about it.  A single Soviet squad caught in the open passed 3 BTCD tests in one turn.  Not to be outdone, the Soviet sapper squad then took out the King Tiger with a satchel charge!
