Red X's on posted pictures
Why am i seeing red x on posted pictures?

Please say it wasn't hotlinking. Now that i actually know how to use imageshack for about 7 yrs of not understanding it, that was the cause of red x's

The red xs mean your browser was unable to load the images. This could be for any of a number of reasons, including the URL has become invalid (this often happens with hotlinked images if the host moves or deletes content), there could be delays or errors in the network path, the image server is unavailable, and so on.

Sorry I haven't been active here for almost 2 yrs. I remember there used to be a list of some sort of approved hosts, but I cannot seem to find it Could someone please post a brief list of the approved hosts? If I remember correctly, we weren't allow to use ImageBam---is that still true?

ImageBam and several others are still prohibited. The announcement regarding appropriate sites may be found here.

Sorry to intrude, but can we assume that the appropriate sites won't have porn ads? I remember clicking on a few pics in the Star Style thread that led to some very disturbing pictures on the sides as ads.

We do have a rule against that .... but it's hard to know untill after you've hosted then posted something. We ask our members to double check the hosting sites they are using by clicking on their own thumbnails and looking around at the page, after they post from there for the first few times, just to be sure.

Just report those posts and we'll talk to the member and ask them to change thier hosting site.

This image?




>First off, you have an extra ' http:// ' in there.
>Second, you posted a link to the site page, not a valid image file.
>Third, it looks like they tried to prevent hotlinking through use of a very old trick that most people know how to get around.

If I take an image from somewhere and upload it to a hosting site, do I still have to list the original source of the image?

Hi
I need help figuring out how to post thumbnails ! I emailed the technical support a week ago - but I still have no response.....

I use ImageShack to host my photos and I have figured out how to post full size images (by copying the code from the "Direct" line in the Full size section ), but I cannot figure out how to post thumbnails. When I copy the code from the "Forums" line in the thumbnail size section - no picture shows in the preview or in the post (as seen above ^).

It seems everyone else on TFS has figured out how to post thumbnails - so I would appreciate any tips that can be offered to let me know what I am doing wrong and what portions of the code I should be copying.

Our Tech support did reply to you on on March 11, at 7:08PM Pacific Time less than 8 hours after you contacted them. But they just referred you here because it's different for each hosting site. Probably you will need to add @thefashionspot.com to your allowed senders .... your spam blocker probably got it.

Hello,

We beleive that you are talking about thumbnails ... smalll images that open up to view large sized ones. This is done with using a specific "thumbnail" code provided by the photo hosting service you use. It's different for every site.

To read about posting thumnails, please go to this thread in our Member Support forum, where you should find some information:
- How to Post Thumbnails: http://forums.thefashionspot.com/f44/how-post-thumbnails-52571.html




If reading this thread does not help you figure it out, ask how to do it, giving the name of your hosting site and someone might know the answer to your question.


Regards,
the Fashion Spot Team
I don't use ImageShack ... but I do see the thumbnail URL to use towards the bottom of your screen cap .... and see that you used it in the thumbnail you tried to post here. When I check the properties of the missing image, it says it's "not available" so that tells me that there might be a problem on ImageShack. But I have no idea what it could be ..... Are you sure you used the entire code? i can't see the end of it in your screen cap. Maybe check that again.


Maybe someone else who uses ImageShack to post thumbnails can advise you about what to do?

If not ... see if ImageShack provides some member support ... FAQ's or support links.
