Thread: Picture posting

  1. #1

    Default Picture posting

    I don't seem to be able to post pictures anymore. There's no icon for attachments or pictures. Never had any trouble before. I put up my collection in the pelican thread not too long ago. Help

    From the CPF FAQs

    Attachments and Images

    How do I attach a file to a post?
    ATTACHMENTS PERMITTED WITH PAID SUBSCRIPTION ONLY!!
    To attach a file to your post, you need to be using the main 'New Post' or 'New Thread' page and not 'Quick Reply'. To use the main 'New Post' page, click the 'Post Reply' button in the relevant thread.
    On this page, below the message box, you will find a button labelled 'Manage Attachments'. Clicking this button will open a new window for uploading attachments. You can upload an attachment either from your computer or from another URL by using the appropriate box on this page. Alternatively you can click the Attachment Icon to open this page.
    To upload a file from your computer, click the 'Browse' button and locate the file. To upload a file from another URL, enter the full URL for the file in the second box on this page. Once you have completed one of the boxes, click 'Upload'.
    Once the upload is completed the file name will appear below the input boxes in this window. You can then close the window to return to the new post screen.
    What files types can I use? How large can attachments be?
    In the attachment window you will find a list of the allowed file types and their maximum sizes. Files that are larger than these sizes will be rejected. There may also be an overall quota limit to the number of attachments you can post to the board.
    How do I add an image to a post?
    If you have uploaded an image as an attachment, you can click the arrow next to the 'Attachment Icon' and select it from the list. This will be inserted into your post and can be located where you want it displayed.
    To include an image that is not uploaded as an attachment and is located on another website, you can do so by copying the full URL to the image, (not the page on which the image is located), and either pressing the 'Insert Image' icon or by typing [img] before the URL and [/img] after it, ensuring that you do not have any spaces before or after the URL of the image. You can insert photos from your albums (?) in this way too.



    Doesn't do any harm to get a sunscription if you want to support the site.

    From the FAQ's : What files types can I use? How large can attachments be?In the attachment window you will find a list of the allowed file types and their maximum sizes. Files that are larger than these sizes will be rejected. There may also be an overall quota limit to the number of attachments you can post to the board.

    Problem: The attachment window displays a list of accepted file types (.jpg, etc.), but does not identify any image file size limits. All of the trial images I tried uploading are reported by the server as having failed to upload. Does anyone know what the image file size limits are?

    You can post pics anytime using a photo hosting site. You donít need a subscription.

    Seems posting an image from the app is currently disabled. No problem as I can use a photo hosting site but will this be permanent? Thanks all and keep up the awesome work!

    EDIT
    Got it figured out!
    Ignore this.....


    I also have a question about posting images.

    I use Flickr. In other forums I create a link to the image for example:
    https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/...f883c448_c.jpg

    And use something in the editor section to let the app know I want to use that URL.
    The app usually puts something like:
    !https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/...6abc529d_c.jpg!

    Bracketing the URL with something that tells the forum that it's a link to an image.
    Most also let me insert something to limit the width of the image to a percentage of the column width.
    I don't seem to be smart enough to figure that out for CPF.
    I've tried:
    {url=https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/...f883c448_c.jpg
    /img}{/url}
    But that's a fail/
    I've looked at the guides and don't seem to be able to find how to do this.
    Seems for an image heavy POST that's the way to go instead of inserting the actual image into the thread.
    Thanks for the help
    All the Best
    Jeff
