How do I post pics?


Recommended Posts

Two options: 

1) You can use that attachments button (the paper clip at the bottom of the box you reply in.) OR

2) If it's already hosted somewhere, copy and paste the URL in plain text and the board should automatically embed it.  (It must be in a supported format (so no mp4 or gifv.)

I am using an android phone and do not see the paper clip (which is how I do that on other boards), just says insert image from url. Do I have to change my settings (apologies for all the questions as I'm 44 and struggle with tech)?

The paper clip should be on the bottom of the post box to the left of "Add Files" and "Other Media"

Granted I am looking at that via my iPhone but it should be the same for Android

I'm also on Android, I just hit "Add Files" and it allows me to attach a pic from my phone. Maybe it's a theme issue? I've never tried it before so uh testing it now. So it shows up at the bottom, then I get an option to "insert" the image and it gets placed into my post.

I'm on FireFox, the Navy Nights theme, and there's no paperclip.

When I try to copy and paste an image, I get a message "You cannot paste images directly. Upload or insert from URL", but again, no upload option.

I tried it on PC and phone using Edge, Chrome and Firefox.  But even under default theme only option I see is to insert from URL.  I thought that's how it's always been so it didn't bother me.  But it would be great if there was a direct upload option.

This is weird as I use the Navy Nights theme and I tested it, and I can attach on Chrome and Android. Not sure what the common thread is for those that can't post pictures.

The reason is - and my old age forgot this - is that members can't upload/use the attach feature. Only mods and admins can

This is mainly due to limit board size and due to some other factors (which you can probably figure out on your own)

It is why myself, Dolfan and Kevin (as mod) could do it

We are working on trying to decide on a happy medium that wont nuke the board

That's cool because I wanted to upload a photo or two from when I was at the AEW show in March, but couldn't make the board link to my Flickr.

That's weird because I used Flickr when doing the movie poll results and those images all still work

Now I will say that since the image is huge - FOR THE LOVE GOD - make sure to use the spoiler box if you decide to post them on the board

Yeah. sorry about that, will do! I'll also try and size them down for any future posting!

Sometimes I forget I am special. I also never use it (aside from the test above), I always just upload stuff to imgur and paste the link in the post. Trying to save DEAN on some server costs.

Kind of related but is there way to get pictures from Facebook to show up?  When people post stuff from there I always get a link that starts with "May be an image of..." and it leads to nothing.  I think I it working one time in the past but I had to disable all privacy/security features which is a big no-no for me.  I also tried every browser I have using default skin but it doesn't work for me.  If it was up to me I'd ask people to not post stuff from there anymore but that aside it would be nice to see what's going on.  And this is all on PC so unsure if viewing on my cell makes a difference.

No - the designers of the board eliminated that feature awhile ago. Something changed on the Facebook side and the auto embed stop working. Invision claimed that they would eventually add a fix in an update but that was over a year ago and not a peep.

Thanks.  Has me wondering how people are able to respond to said pictures on here but is it too much to suggest people use a workaround?
