Well in the meantime if this helps anyone, I still find it very simple to do, although it is an extra step going to another website first:

So go to www.imgbb.com on your phone browser, upload photo, select full bb code from the drop-down, select to copy the text in the img brackets like I have above (except include that closing bracket lol) then paste here, post and your photo will show :tup:

BOYCOTT…. Then it gets fixed as promised, or at least a statement it’s never coming back. I’m enjoying my time not bothering to jump through hoops to simply attach an image, as easy as it was for LONG time, in an effort to help other members. Though I miss not being as helpful as I was until this was BROKEN….

A PICTURE IS WORTH A THOUSAND WORDS!

I agree, maybe it's annoying if you're on a computer or something, but using a phone, the way I described above, is not even close to jumping through hoops my man, boycott as if they are refusing to fix it for some reason and you refusing to post photos would make them fix it? You're only hurting me with this boycott my friend :rofl:

Sorry, but I’d like to think of myself as a person of integrity, and I’m not going to link to the posts that were made regarding this. A simple statement regarding the actual status would be appreciated, regardless of the outcome. We went through all the extra work when this site went through shut down, then new site, then owners return, then site backup. I think all the members that went through that are at least loyal, like you.

The image attachments were active, then down for a few days, then back, working great, then the message, “temporary no attachments”, or similar, the message bar at the top of every FC screen. So while I’ve created a few websites, I’m no expert, but since it was working, I’lll assume it’s not a limitation of the forum software, which is used on many other such sites. I realize images take up SERVER SPACE, and if that’s an issue, money wise, I’d understand, and personally would have no problem with a DONATION, but without hearing anything about this functionality coming back or not, my hand is still on my wallet.

I’m happy you have the time and don’t consider it a “hoop”, but I’m not going to defend my position, as long as everyone continues to use OTHER image sites to post their own photos, which is an EFFORT to make a decent photo, then nothing will get addressed. I’m sure there are many members like me that just don’t bother anymore, and that makes this site less valuable overall..

And as I’ve said before, and you agreed with, IMAGES LINKED TO ON OTHER SITES RISK BEING LOST FOREVER WHEN THAT FREE SERVICE SHUTS DOWN!!! And since that’s happened here and on other sites, members reading posts with images that are NO LONGER loading, ends up being a waste of everyone’s time……

I’ll just continue to BOYCOTT attaching images, and spending less time here….. sorry

I'm wondering about using my Google Drive account to host photos/videos. Would that be do-able? Any risk of compromise to my personal data, id, or such?
Is anyone using this? I know how to copy a share url in Drive, seems only a step away to be posting here...
This way I would have more control over "object permanence"? :rolleyes: :worms:

I would not do it if you want to preserve your anonymity. It is possible to figure out account details from some google drive public links. I suppose you could use a burner google account, which maybe you already do.

I think it is highly unlikely anyone would try to dox you but it has happened in these forums before.

Other people have tried posting Google doc links and I don't think they work well, because even to view them you have to reveal your anonymity? Bugs too

I'm rather clueless about all this. I simply want to post a picture for a classified ad--and a picture is required. I've turned on the feature in my settings, but the "insert image" seems only to accept links. I can try to use ImgBB but: 1) is there an easier way? and 2) if I post an Imgur link, would that show the picture (or only the link to the picture)?

[Edit: it looks like imgbb also creates a link.I tried it and was told that "image cannot be loaded from the passed link." Any thoughts?

Thanks!

That's the best way right now. If you read this thread you will see the history of how we got here.

Thanks Grass Yes. I think my "edit" leaped over your kind post. I did read the thread! I'm not very good with this stuff.

It's not letting my use a link from imgbb or Imgur. I'm simply pasting in the http link from the "insert image" icon. What am I doing wrong?

That's what you are doing wrong, just paste the link in your post, if you want the image to display use the bb code from imgbb as I explained in my previous post here, what is in the IMG brackets, or you can just paste the link itself. If you are loading on imgur.com to do an album, then you just have to paste the URL after you upload to display the album here...

That link might help...

From the above link, what you want to copy from imgbb is the link that looks like this.
[i*mg]https://i.ibb.co/3Ykk4QC/Keith.png[/im*g] but without the asterisks. You drop it directly into your post.
If you remove the asterisks from the link above you will get the following:

@Stu or whoever applicable, apologies

I noticed hotlinking to imgur doesnt work anymore, the images used to show embedded and it looks like imgur is blocking them based on the referrer in the request. you can test, given a page like - https://fuckcombustion.com/threads/eds-woodscents-log-vape-eds-tnt.22287/page-46 you see broken images

if you can add
Code:
referrerpolicy="no-referrer"
to the img tags then they will load as expected. you can test this by running this js in the console

Code:
const img = document.querySelectorAll('img');
for (let x=0;x<img.length;x++) { img[x].referrerPolicy = "no-referrer"; }

they will load and pop into view

made a bookmarklet:
Code:
javascript:(function(){const%20img%3Ddocument.querySelectorAll%28%22img%22%29%3Bfor%28let%20e%3D0%3Be%3Cimg.length%3Be++%29img%5Be%5D.referrerPolicy%3D%22no-referrer%22%3B})();

The referrer is exactly how they blocked us before. When @vtac came back he made some deal with them (I think) that led to them relenting, but apparently they have gone back to fucking us.

Thanks everyone. I think I finally figured it out!

Please tell us.

I requested and authorized image posting in the forum settings, then tried to post a pic from my computer in one of the threads. I clicked "post an image" and a box came up asking me for a URL.

I don't want to use a pic on the internet, I want to post my own image that is saved on my computer. I don't know what imgar is, and am not tech savvy. Is there a way to simply attach and post your own image?
