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.


Hi Bette
Thank you for responding with the link to the forum where they discussed posting thumbnails. The mistake I was making was trying to post the thumbnail code using the image posting icon instead of just pasting the thumbnail code into the post itself. I think that may have solved my problem.

Also, I checked back to the original emails that I received from technical support and I just assumed since they emailed to acknowledge receipt of my question that they would respond with the answer to my email address. I did not realize that I would have to go to the website they posted to receive their response, I only thought I was to check it if I wanted to know the status of my ticket. They definitely responded quickly to my question. Thank you for bringing that to my attention.

Thank you again for all your help with this issue

Hello,

I have two questions.

1) Are we allow to qoute a post with images in another thread? For instance I see another member post an editorial in the magazine section, and I would like to repost it in the behind the lens section. Is this considered hotlinking? (I've always been confused as to what that actually means)

2) A more personal question, but I haven't been able to post images using a direct link option in about a year. Whenever I try the image just appears as a little torn paper icon. I've just resorted to thumbnails, but since I'm in this thread I guess I should mention it. I've had this problem regardless of whatever hosting site I use. I tend to use imageshack or imagetitan the most though.

Thanks.

1. Yes you can. In fact, almost all of the members here reposting the editorials at the magazines section to the BTS'.

2. Maybe you can find the answer here http://forums.thefashionspot.com/sho...0&postcount=19

Thanks Flashbang! Your first answer helps me. Unfortunately the second doesn't. I follow all those steps in your link but I still get a broken image icon every time.

This is a REALLY stupid question, but is hotlinking this thing when you copy pic`s address from another site and then put it like this: [img]address[/img]? Because this is the way I have posted a lot of pictures, and I truly apologize if it is hotlinking and therefore not allowed.

Edit: I have never got any feedback of those shots anyway...

TommyGirl, yes, that is hotlinking. Please either use an image hosting site or the attachment feature.

Moderators spot check, but cannot check every uploaded image. That is why nobody has contacted you about hotlinking.

Thank you, Tangerine, for your answer, I won`t hotlink from now on I am not very familiar with these things but I will learn. And I totally understand you can`t check all the images, keep up the good work you`re doing

I think you may be using the wrong code from ImageTitan.

I clicked on your torn paper icon (it looks different for me ... it's a red X) to get the link to the picture at ImageTitan: http://img4.imagetitan.com/img.php?image=3_174.jpg . Then, when I go there4, I see a "Get Linking Code". When I click on that, it leads here: http://www.imagetitan.com/linkcode.p...mage=3_174.jpg Then, finally, on this last page, you just need to copy and paste the code that is in the box that is named "Clickable Thumbnail For Messageboard / Forum".

And when I post that code here .... this is what I get ... your thumbnail!

Yes, I am able to post thumbnails, and I have been. However I am not able to post a full image within the post like I should be able to with direct link. I want to post images that don't lead to a new link.

Let me try again with a different hosting site. This time I'll use postimage.

selfservice tumblr
edit: i can actually see this one! this is the first time in like a year i have been able to do this. but are we even allowed to use postimage? its not one of the porn sites is it? That's the reason I usually avoid it.
