Images not showing up/contacting the team

Postby zeropoint » Fri Oct 25, 2013 11:34 am

Hi!

I was trying to make a post that had 3 images in it, each one using the correct BBCode tag. When I previewed my post, none of the images showed up,just squares with X's that said "Image." Is that just a preview thing or is there a problem with my post? All my images came from my own flickr page.

I couldn't figure out how to contact a mod/admin. I did save a draft of my post so if you need to see it, I still have it.

Thanks!

Direct Flickr image URLs can be tricky. Can you post your BBCode for the images here, turning off BBCode so they appear as text?

Some sites have hot link protection enabled, and their images cannot be displayed remotely.

Try placing a copy of the image on your own cloud storage site, set the permissions on the image so anyone can view it, and use the link to that copy of the image in your forum message.
