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?
(Solved) - Impossible to post IMG(60 posts)
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.
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.
My pictures are coming off of my Website Stores.
Coding is working now !!
The Geek is working hard I'm sure on the back end.
He'll get it fixed for everyone shortly.
One like it.
"Green Eyed Lady" has always been my call sign.
Remember the old song ??
EDIT: Will play with the coding tonight to see if I can link to a MP3.
Yes, I rememember that song and liked it, so I'll have to add that to my iPOD.
What type of plane is that?? A Cessna . . . do they even make business jets?? A Gulfstream (do they make them that small?). I'd guess maybe a Beechcraft too, but I don't see that characteristic tail. A Leer??
I'm out of guesses.
LH is on the money !!
Try to afford one of those newer "babies" now especially with fuel cost !!
Doing well to pay house electricity bill :) :)
Times have changed.
I think what Geek is trying to do is make the thing more stable, not necessarily go one way or the other on coding. I had at one time inserted images with the BBCode bracket tags . . . . Then the thing no longer worked that way . . . one day it did, and one day it didn't, AND THAT WAS BEFORE GEEK EVEN MESSED WITH IT. Then I tried it with HTML coding, and finally got it to work. So whatever Geek ends up doing, whether it goes back to BBCode or stays with HTML coding, or both, or a modified version (in which case we'll all be learning again), I think it's just a matter of achieving stability and stopping the thing from being so fickle.
An excerpt from a post I made here https://www.howtogeek.com/forum/topic/formatting-issues-/page/2?replies=31 (and again, this was BEFORE Geek started to mess with it):
"OK . . . I finally got the images to work. After messing around with it for some time (and Rick, I guess you popped in during one of my many failures), I got it to take. This time instead of the simple straight brackets I had used before I used the HTML coding character. It finally worked when I did that img src= coding AND used backticks. Very confusing because, as I just said, it did not work as it did before. This time it was completely different."
BobJam, thanks for the explanation. As I am using a lot of pictures in my answers, I just want the simple IMG facility back. It's enough trouble having to upload it etc. (in lieu of just pasting it into the post). I don't want to have to go thru left bracket, right bracket, etc. stuff for a simple picture posting. As it is right now, I cannot post. So I will just wait until it has been fixed.
Btw: All this animated stuff is very distracting. If this Forum is becoming a circus, I do not want to be a clown in it. I think hash started that. I already hated it then.
whs + LH,
Without getting into tech speak, I think the Geek is trying to fix the site where it can pull down (Reference) an image or picture from (ANY) website. This would the traditional ones where the members have had to upload their files to (AND) also from the Members own Websites.
NOT a big issue but it does take a bit of time and coding and HE CAN CODE if anyone can.
Be patient as ALL member's input is welcome and needed to make the site even better.
EDIT: I will blank out all my test picture postings before I retire for the evening.
Alright, I enabled the bbcode plugin again.
I've been attempting to get this problem resolved... I'll figure it out, just try and be patient. Sadly I have way too much on my plate at the moment, and I can't find a reliable programmer to hire to work on these things for me. (or at least can't find one in my price range)
@raphoenix: I'm not sure what you mean. We have been able to load images from any web site and still can, just not using the bbCode IMG tag.
Edit: It appears as of about 30 seconds ago we can use bbCode again. So all the image stuff is as it was.
Not sure what you mean ??
Notice I was able to reference pictures in my website stores today and could not do it before the plugin was removed for a while. What tags have you been using to get pictures off your website in the past ??
You got to have a SRC tag also plus a URL ref etc.,
Have you been following this on going discussion for the last two weeks ??
BobJam has posted daily and almost everyone else has jumped in including The Geek.
If you know something about the site that no one else seems to know, then please share it with us all.
Not just me :) :)
Yes; that's the code I'm using.
For several weeks that code and other code did (NOT) work.
Even The Geek said there were problems.
Everyone even tried Backticks and other methods.
The Geek got involved again today and did something with bbpress.
I just surmised as to what he was doing in the post which started this conversation.
Now the code is working again as you can see.
That is why I say "Be Happy" :) :) :)
Wait a minute . . . wait a minute. So now BOTH the HTML coding and BBCode image insertion works??
I guess another test is in order.
First, lemme try the old BBCoding with the brackets . . . [ and ] :
And then lemme try the HTML coding with the img src= and the < and > characters AND the backticks:
Yup . . . both ways work now. But I don't know still if the EDIT will mess things up. May test that later, but for now this is enough. Thanks Geek.
P.S. LH, where is that "anti-animation" button you spoke of in that other thread?? Is it here somewhere on the "My Profile" section, or are you talking about something on your machine??
In Firefox, hit the <Esc> key to pause animations on the current page. To disable them permanently, in about:config set "image.animation_mode" to "none".
Like whs, I get tired of the circus when the little animations are all playing, it's distracting from the content. Luckily, it's easy to disable in FF. Unfortunately, even after the circus has stopped, it's still a jungle in here! :)
EDIT: the <Esc> key works in IE7, too.
Yes, I tried the escape key in IE7 and that worked just fine. But now I have another problem . . . how do I re-enable animations? I tried hitting the Esc key again, but that didn't bring it back.
