It doesn't show up on my wife's laptop or a desktop PC we have though

Here it is again quoted from yesterday.

I figure it's something I screwed up in some setting Wink

CCF never seemed to be at the forefront of forum technology. Nobody is saying it should be either. The last 20 years have been fun, resourceful and forged lifelong bonds amongst its members. Again, nobody is doubting that. Just because someone is looking toward the future doesn’t mean he needs to get *************** on. Thanks to those who have made the site what it was and is, and to those making an attempt at keeping it going.

Well, I think I've decided that it's pretty easy to post a picture here on CCF without using the site process which doesn't work anyways right now.

There are probably a variety of ways that people use, but what works for me is using a third party photo hosting service (in my case IMGBB, the free version)

Once you figure out the IMGBB upload process which is easy, then you basically do a cut and paste from IMGBB right to a dialog box here on CCF, like I'm typing in right now. You select BB code full in the embed codes portion of the picture and click on copy, go to CCF and paste it.

Far from the best explanation, but if I can do it, you can too 

It bypasses the CCF photo posting process completely and it's easier besides

I suppose it could turn into a Photobucket money fiasco all over again...........or not

And..............it works with a phone  didn't want anybody to miss that part Wink

Maybe this is the new normal here on CCF or the old normal for some people that have posted pictures here for years

And for Jodi...........I really don't remember why I shortened the ratchet. but since it has a spark plug socket on it, that's one thing that it gets used for

It gets plenty of use though on lots of different things.

About the shortened ratchet. Anyone that does their own wrenching has their own stash of customized tools that only they know what it is used for. Not to be morbid but when I end up puking out of here , the tool cleanup person will probably shake their head and say " WTF did he use that for ".
Feels like I am hanging 10 but in reality - probably hanging 6.

Well, after talking with the elephant, he figures that he did what he could and the rest is up to someone else.

He said he was getting a little lonely and he spotted a cute female elephant going by, struck up a conversation with her, one thing led to another and last I knew they were working on making little baby elephants together. Wink

Been lurking on this thread for a while but now I'm really confused......Baby Elephants? Sounds like a new show ski act to me....


I will say - the lack of convenience posting/uploading etc seems to have kept some of the riff raff over on the more common platforms.  It's painful to read some of the posts/comments over there by folks who are unwilling to do a little research on their own.  Don't even get me started on the lack of quality information.  Site traffic might be down, but I don't mind losing some of the redundant questions, posts & comments.

Well, let's try this.................the site has a picture posting issue, it's been pointed out, 7 weeks later it seems nothing's been done or communicated about it from Keith and he's the only one who can do anything about it.

You're  on your own when it comes to posting pictures here these days using a 3rd party photo hosting service or whatever else might work for you.

Any of the other issues mentioned in the thread were brought up by other people. (You can figure out how to solve those yourself)

And the elephant....................he stirred up some interest, but he'd rather be out getting laid right about now, I could probably post pictures of that but you can find those with a Google search Wink

After talking to my cousin Vinny, he explained to me what he thought you might have been thinking about what I might have been inferring in my statement that  might have mislead somebody reading the statement into thinking that I meant something that I really didn't mean at all...............I should have just said it's up to Keith

It takes an act of congress to post pictures for most people.  Others are much more savvy than I and can do it easily it seems.  I hope Keno is writing his thesis on this topic and will share it soon!Wink

Since Ken has opted to not give us the steps using imgbb, i explored it myself.  Sadly, I was not as lucky as him in stumbling across the secret method.  I went to imgbb and uploaded a photo. (interesting, unlike that AWFUL photobucket site, you dont need an account, you can just upload a photo, I guess it disappears once you are done with it.  There does appear to be a register option so I guess you can store and go back to photos as well, but I didnt mess with that.  As Ken said, you can simply click on/copy the URL of the photo, easy enough so far, but getting it to show up in a post here is the trick.  I tried the various BB codes.  One did not result in the image showing up, just a image icon, and one resulted in a link back to the photo in imgbb.  That is too cumbersome.  So Ken, any tips on how to plant the image url into a post so that is displays as an image?

Well, maybe I wasn't that far off.  I did manage to create a post but I also ended up with an image Icon but no actual image.  I was working from Google Pictures and a separate site that created a link to allow you to upload pictures from Google Pictures to a forum.  Slightly more cumbersome than IMGBB but no restrictions, which made it seem like a good idea, except it didn't work.

I just posted this image of Jethro from my phone. I'll try to explain how I did it soon.

I did notice that Rule 91 has a slight lean to the right.

The lean was cured a few seconds later though in the explosion Wink

I registered for the Free account.so my photos are saved. Earlier in this thread when some of my pictures disappeared it was because I deleted them from IMGBB and had to upload them again to put them back on CCF. IMGBB didn't create the pronlem..........I did it all by myself Wink

Use the BBCode full  option

When you paste the BBCode full into the message box here on CCF, the code shows up when you kinda think there should be a picture showing up.

Next step, mutter a few things, scratch your head and then hit the  "preview" option and the picture is there.

Smile and then hit "post reply" and the picture is on CCF

You can probably skip the preview and just hit post reply and the picture gets posted, but I always hit preview before posting 

No guarantees but that's what works for me.

So that's what I get here with Google Photos using my convoluted method.  I tried the same operation on a different forum and the picture went up just fine so it's an issue here, not with the method.  

I was trying to dodge IMGBB because there are limits to the amount of data you can keep there without ponying up cash and some other minimum stuff but looks like that's the way to go.  Or one way that we know works anyway.

Still not quite sure what you mean by the "BB Full Code Option"  the [img} thing doesnt work and the [url] thing doesnt work.  Can you post what your entered url/bb code entry looks like?  Interesting that if the image is gone from imgbb it is gone from here, meaning it is not copying the photo to here, but rather posting a link.  Come to think if it, I guess thats the way photobucket worked to, just never occurred to me that was the case.
