  • Nothing13 I noticed in your member's survey post that you have a lot of broken image uploads so I just wanted to try to help and check with you how are you attaching the images to the posts?

    For greater control over the sizes etc you can use links from an image hosting site like Imgur, or you can upload to the site using the image upload or the main attachment uploads options...

      I have used upload attachments and the icon image like in your picture, but the size of the image was too big. I tried multiple times in order to understand the logic of the sizes (because for me wasn't correct), after I tried to reduce the size of the image with a program and I tried to upload it, but the quality wasn't good, so I removed it. I thought the images were removed and I don't see broken image uploads now.

        I agree the sizing of the upload attachments can be inappropriate and either appear far too small or huge. If you are able to resize your pictures and adjust them to have a width of around 500-600 pixels (around 9-10cm), that should then load up so 'large' appears like the sizes of the screenshots I've taken below. I've taken these to show you the 'missing image' symbols that are in the survey post. These can just be edited out, but I didn't remove them as I wanted to check what was causing it. Do these appear as pictures to you?

        Alternatively, image hosting sites can give greater control over picture sizes and be a straight forward option where you choose the size you want and copy the code to paste into your posting box here. I have a paid for account with SlickPic but I think there are still some image hosts that provide a free level of membership too.

            Okay, that's odd. I've looked in Firefox, Chrome and Safari and they are all just showing the missing picture symbols. I'm assuming these were put up through the 'upload attachment' option? If so, when you click on one, can you paste the URL it gives you here? There are no 'media' files showing under your profile so it doesn't seem to have registered them if they were uploaded.

            flow I know you responded to the survey post, could you see the pictures Nothing13 put in the post?

              Yes, I used the 'upload attachment' option

                Okay, they just show as a blank page with 'invalid file specified' to me and I've checked I get the same if I look at them with testuser as well. As there are no photos in your media tab on your profile, I don't think they've loaded. But it is strange that they are appearing for you. If anyone else can see them please do let me know, but I'm going to pass it on to vBulletin to see if they can help as I can't work out what is happening here. Sorry about this. Thanks for your help and the links, I'll try to get to the bottom of it.

                • I can see the Spike 1977s video when I click on the green writing. I see no other pics in your member's survey post, Nothing13, sorry!

                  I use imgur to link pics. It's free and even for a technical idiot like me super easy to navigate. I don't know how I ever lived without it.

                    This is what i have done in detail:
                    -Initially, I used the upload attachment' option, since it doesn't work because of the size limitation I tried many times in order to understand the logic, since it doesn't work I cancelled all the images.
                    -After I used the icon "image properties"-image info"-URL: I used the URL of 2 images from Google image.

                    I try it another time:

                    c310da502722f46f3877d0e65d9f20b7.jpg

                    In the upload attachments, I can choose the format of the images: Small-Medium-Large.
                    Do you see these images?

                    Yes, both of those are appearing in the post and they are also viewable under your 'media' tab on your profile page, so they have uploaded properly.

                    It could just be that in trying different ways before and cancelling them, they just didn't fully upload but all the attempts were registering as failed images. But I can see these fine, so that method worked here.

                    If you want to use the 'upload attachments' then I think you need to be able to alter the picture sizes yourself as the sizes offered have such big jumps (as I said, somewhere around 9-10cm, 500-600pixels would be a workable 'large' size). Or use an image hosting site. Using the image icon and connecting to a URL should be fine too, if you can locate a picture that fits what you want.

                    If these were the only two pictures you wanted on your survey post, I should be able to edit them across for you.

                        Not a problem, I've copied them across. I'm sorry you had trouble with this. Hopefully it'll be more straightforward next time, but do feel free to ask if you have any other difficulties.

                    • I have added a query to the ongoing issues (listed on the opening post of this thread) to see if the pop up box that messages appear in if you select them individually from the drop down notification can be altered further. The view is still far too restricted if you view PMs this way.

                      In the meantime, members are reminded that if you select the 'Message Centre' at the bottom of the drop down and view messages through notifications there (or by going into your inbox or sent items from the right hand menus), then the view of your messages is like a typical thread view. This is far more user friendly than the pop up message option.

                          When you are in your inbox and you can see your list of messages, are you clicking on the message titles to enter them?

                          • Just a quick note to let everyone know that we are aware of the current problem with the smilies - If you click on 'more smilies' the selection disappears entirely. This appears to be a problem that started this week across sites on vBulletin Cloud hosting and they have had the issue reported to them and are looking into fixing it.

                            I've checked and the smilies are still all there in the background admin and if you type in the codes it will still enter them. So, in the meantime, for people that aren't as site-nerdy as me and don't already know the codes (), here are some screengrabs I took a while back of the smilies. There have been a few added since too that aren't still showing within the ones in the currently reduced smilies box (lose the asterisks to get these codes to work):
                            :flower*: -
                            :think*: -

                            The old grabs I have of the others are below. Hopefully it'll get fixed soon.

                            • Thanks Priceless for flagging that the smilies are back. vBulletin got that sorted quicker than I expected, it's good to have them back.

                                Are you uploading by the 'upload attachments' underneath the message box from your machine or by the 'pic' button on the toolbar? I think through the toolbar button you can provide a link to a webpage's image URL and that might not count as an upload against your user. Basically there are limits to what can be loaded onto the site by each member. If you go into your profile you can see what you have uploaded direct to the site in the 'media' tab. I'll make a note to have a look at upload limits if people are starting to hit them, but uploading by a link taken from an image host is another alternate that doesn't load it directly onto the site and use up your space. I've no idea what the two images message is on about.

                                • I just think that this website dosen't work well with my browser as this is but one of several issues I've had with it. I normally would upload elsewhere and then embed on here, but that doesn't seem to work either.

                                  • Which browser are you using Silver1 ? I'm happy to try to work out issues but without specifics it's hard to figure out if it is a setting you have on here or a communication issue between the site and browser or between the image host and site (which we've had before). If it isn't a problem others are reporting I can only assume it is in the communication between the site and your set up somehow. But it might be fixable.

                                    Which image host do you use? I have Slickpic and don't have any problems using their codes. I think flow and Nina use imgur and that seems to work fine. If you can post the code you are trying to use here then I might be able to see the problem if I can see it.

                                    • Silver1 if that can help you

                                      The link: https://postimages.org/fr/

                                      Before I could not transfer an image but after I succeeded with this hosting site you can use it is very simple you just have to choose the image than you want and then select the link .
