Re: IMG code in the tech lounges.....

In any of the lounges for that matter? Surely its not to protect those (a small minority of cheapskates) in the stone age who are still on dial up?

Re: IMG code in the tech lounges.....

Yep, I agree, in tech can be very handy, and would be a laugh in the less serious ones (as well as saving ao from having to host the files)

I think it's to ensure the board runs quicker.

Re: IMG code in the tech lounges.....

How would linking images from another site slow it down?

The page still has to load, and some other sites will be slower than AO.

Re: IMG code in the tech lounges.....

Also, we find that people load/insert images that are just soooooo big, they break the pages

Re: IMG code in the tech lounges.....

Can't we still insert pictures with the uploading tool?.

It's just I don't seem to be able to do it anymore, if I attach an image to upload and press the upload button, it looks like it's doing it then fails and says image not uploaded. It's not the size, I've kept them small enough

if you use photobucket to host them they are automatically resized to sensible proportions.....

Is the uploading tool also available only in certain lounges?


By the uploading tool, I assume we are talking about that little icon in the edit toolbar which looks like a mini-landscape, labelled "insert image"?

If not, how can I insert in-line images into posts (as opposed to attachments, which put a link at the bottom of the post)?

Re: IMG code in the tech lounges.....

To upload images you need to 'Go 'Advanced'.
the 'Insert an image' button is only for linking to off-site images.

Eh? Sorry, you lost me there Andy


Where is the option?


What I would like to do is link an off-site image within the text of the post (although, I could do it as a local file).

The important bit is that it's within the text, rather than an attachment link at the bottom of the post......



Am I being really thick here?

Re: IMG code in the tech lounges.....

As far as I am aware (and as the nature of this thread goes), inline image posting is only available in the Image Lounge.

I seem to be able to do it anywhere, but perhaps this is because I have mod level.

Try putting an image in your reply to this thread by adding [img] to the start of a hosted image and [/img] at the end.

Nope didn't work - just puts them in as links. [IMG] code is set to Off for me in the WOT lounge.

The images tags are disabled in every lounge except the Just images lounge.

After that he used the tags [ attach] and [/ attach] with the 5 digit number of the uploaded picture.
