    Question Photos in posts

    A couple of times now I have posted a photo using a web link and it showed up fine until I edited the post to correct spelling or something.
    After editing the photo disappears from the post but the link remains.
    I'm a child of the 60's, but I got over it.

    Repost the url with the [img] brackets. Should work fine.

    I think we are still having a few problems with pic posting after the server move...I looked at the airplane pic link on your ultimate toy thread, and the IMG tags are correct, but the picture still won't show...

    I just added a picture to the post I made previously in this thread.
    You can post a picture in an edit.
    I used the picture icon and added the url.

    The url in this post doesn't have the [img] brackets.

    I looked at it in the "edit" mode, and the img tags are there...there are a few strange things ongoing with the forum, and I know Bumper is looking to make corrections ASAP...

    This does seem to occur at times ......... and hard to see why.

    In theory at least if a valid url is enclosed with 'img' tags it should show. Just occasionally it seems a hot link can work once only or not at all - dependent maybe on the host server - and then it will show sometimes as just a web link..

    Actually, if you are using Internet Explorer 7, there is a problem just announced by vBulletin. It reads:

    If you click the picture insert button within Internet Explorer 7 (IE7) and vBulletin, with it's default settings Internet Explorer 7 pops up a yellow warning bar that says,

    "This website is using a scripted window to ask you for information. If you trust this website, click here to allow scripted windows..."

    You then have to click it to "temporarily allow scripted windows" and then once again click the picture insert icon for the pop-up to work (asking you for the URL).

    You have to do this EVERY SINGLE TIME you make a new post or thread because it only allows this temporarily on a single page once you enable it. A change in security settings for a particular site can resolve the problem. This doesn't happen with IE6.


    vBullletin has just released an upgrade to resolve this, and a few other problems. I will be installing the upgrade on the DefensiveCarry forum before we make the name change.

    That may not be your problem as we are having several other nagging little problems that I am also hoping the upgrade resolves.....

    It gave me one, too. That was off the vBulletin website, it didn't come out of my mouth....

    no wonder i never had a problem honestly, i only use IE at work when we have to because of access controls. otherwise, i would never even know it existed.
