You're trying to download a picture from another website by linking to it here. I believe what you're trying to do is known as 'hot linking', a process by which an image is loaded to your local page from someone elses webserver instead of your own. This saves your bandwidth at the cost of the other guys website. There are ways to block you from doing that and you are seeing what happens; nothing!

To display an image, you could open an account at, say, photobucket.com, upload the image you want to show here to that account, and then display it here by using the link provided by photobucket.

HTH,

Andy

I read through the FAQ after that attempted image post and it says sites that are password protected cannot be used for image posting.
Not password protected? Photobucket works you say?

Copy/paste
...You cannot link to pictures stored on your own PC (unless it is a publicly accessible server) nor to images stored behind authentication mechanisms such as Hotmail or Yahoo mailboxes, password-protected sites, etc...

The forum software is kind of picky, in that when you use the [img] tags, it expects a link to an image, and it defines image as a filename followed by a recognized image filename extension, such as .JPEG or .PNG . It will not try to parse a link that does not end in an image file extension, even if that URL would work if a browser queried a server using that link.

It's a security precaution, and a good one I think.

If I can hire a developer to implement the [gotopost] functionality for phpBB v3.x, then we'll have native image hosting here.

You've got the img tags ok, just no URL between them ;)

Because pictures on photo-hosting services tend to not be there a couple years down the road, I have been periodically going through all posts every month or so and taking a couple of hours to download posted photos to a local directory on the server, then editing every post to point to the local copy instead of the photo hosting service copy. This is to avoid the broken links problem when the photo hosting account goes dormant, or somebody exceeds their quota and the pictures get deleted.

But it's a lot of work for me.

I recently upgraded the forum software so that we now have native files hosting via attachments. Try that feature out, instead of using photo hosting elsewhere? It will save me a lot of work. Give it a try.

I haven't tested, but it should be preferable to upload at the largest size/highest resolution, even if it takes longer. It should be possible for someone to click on a pic and see the high-res version, if they need detail.

I admit that I haven't tested this -- well, I did, but it was months ago.

[later]

Yeah, it does.

Click on your picture above. In the lower right corner is an icon to make it full-screen. Then you can drag the pic around and see details.

That's why you want to upload the largest pic, rather than a smaller pic that takes less time to upload.
