Help Posting Photos?

Post by Lance » Thu Jul 01, 2021 8:35 am

Every time I try to hotlink a photo, I get the following error message:
It was not possible to determine the dimensions of the image. Please verify that the URL you entered is correct.
For example, I tried this

Code: Select all

[img]https://i.imgur.com/9dJWclF.jpg[/img]
and got that message.

Any help?

When I post an image from OneDrive, I have to create the URL specifically to embed the image - it gives a different URL structure. Do you have this option on your storage site?

I tried different variations with the link you gave. The URL, or course, is good and goes to the picture, and you can create a link to it using url tags instead of img tags (the chain-link icon) - and people can reach it that way. But to show it you are correct that the img tags should work. I think it's the way the image is stored.
