Can't post pictures!! Grrr!

Post by Faster horses » Sat Jun 08, 2019 9:55 am

I keept getting this message and used Hot link for forums and thumbnail for forums. Neither work.
Mustang can't post pictures on here either. So here we are again, what are we doing wrong?

"It was not possible to determine the dimensions of the image. Please verify that the URL you entered is correct."

How could it not be correct when it copied from postimages? I clicked on the blue icons on each place I tried.

Surely this could be made easier. Like 'postimage for dummies'.... :D


There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn't true; the other is to refuse to believe what is true.

Don't think you're doing anything wrong, I couldn't get it to work a few days ago in Coffee Shop, so just posted the clickable links from Postimage. Don't know what the deal is. Videos post, no images will.

At least Mustang and I are not alone.
Maybe if Macon would get this fixed so photos were easier to load, this place might get more traffic.

Well, I've worked on this all day yesterday and can't find the problem. Cattletoday.com and ranchers.net use exactly the same software with the same settings on the same server. Works there, doesn't here. Used to work here. Why it quit I don't know. I'll keep trying but don't have much confidence in a fix. :oops:

The hired gun I use to fix the software is on vacation for another six days. He'll look at the problem when he returns. He'll eventually get it fixed. Until then you can post the link like this:

I think if you just put this link in your bookmarks, https://postimages.org/ , and then just post the "link" from the menu given until things are fixed, at least people can click on it to see your pictures.

And thanks, Macon, for all the work you do maintaining this forum.
