Is someone playing around with the Forum. This morning (Aug. 10) it is impossible to post a picture from Photo Bucket with the IMG code. I have done this many times and it always worked before. Can it be fixed?

Might throw some light on it.

Did not throw much light at all. All I understand is, that it is mucked up. How are we supposed to do anything if the basic facilities don't work?

whs. Hijack that thread and post your image there. I'll talk you through how to make it appear.

I don't want to stand on my head for it. I'll just take a break from HTG. Maybe someone can fix it by September.

Above image is from ImageShack, without any modifications. No issues.

Solved. Photobucket users: Use HTML code instead of IMG.

Bartman. Not quite that simple. But OK for the moment I guess.

The [IMG] tag was supported by a plugin which The Geek disabled because it was causing issues with other formatting tags.

OK . . . it looks like it works. I used HTML codes, but with backticks which seems odd if Geek has disabled BBCode. Whatever . . . it works.

Here's my coding (minus the > character or else it would show up as an image):

img src='http://www.imageox.com/image/139690-Photoofchi.png' /

with the < and > on either side.

LH,

Just wanted to see if I had maybe stumbled on success in that other thread. Not too confident yet. Twice has confirmed for me that the first time was not just an accidental success.
