    So, I want to embed some video from ABC news. That is not of the list of embeddible sources. Is there a way to do it manually?

    Upload the photo as you used to. Then place your cursor in the upper part of the uploaded photo and text will appear with the link. Hit the dropdown next to the word "copy" and choose "get share links". I think that is probably what you are missing...

    Thanks... didn't quite work that way - had to go to My Images and then click the image, therefrom the sidebar on the right side featured all the BBCode Forum & Message Board copy/paste options.[​IMG]

    Since the thread on posting pictures is locked> there is no discussion in that thread about a common usage on other forums. I am familiar with using vBulletin to post thumbnail images, not Xenforo, while embedding a clickable link to a full size image/higher resolution image. Is thumbnail image posting enabled on FC? Please add instructions to the photo posting guide thread.

    What is this forum setting on maximum pixel size, horizontal & vertical limits; as well as size of the file, max size in KBites or MB? Makes a difference how fast a thread will load, thumbnails make the thread load faster and allow faster skimming, full-size images (larger than 800pixel dimmensions) can throw off the width of a thread for those on smartphone/tablets, or smaller laptop screens, making backwardsNforwards swipping to view the whole image. But very large images are very helpful (as well as being ultra iCandy) when trying to diagnose a problem.

    I see imgur noted in the picture tutorial, but no other free image hosting sites. Anyone want to post up reasons for using one over the other? I have a Photobucket acact, but back when the internet was DSL only, and dial-up photobucket was no super slow. I have wireless 20-60Mbps connection, but photobucket is now extremely slow to access...have no idea how slow/fast their servers can handle requests. I have read speculation for wordpress users, that using an image hosting site (designed to serve up images faster than normal hosting services) like Flickr or Google photo as faster image display.

    Pluse/minus to using any particular image hosting sites? Always remove exif data with a program like Photoshop which is what I always use. Photoshop Elements is free & also allows same "save for web" command that will strip all exif data from image files.

    TIA

    XenForo does not support thumbnails. FC does not have limits on image size. You can use any image hosting site that suits you.
