Posting Pics and Vids

I remember a while back that whenever I posted a picture or a youtube video it would show up in my actual post... for the longest time it will only show up as a link. the only thing I think I have done differently is I switched to Google Chrome.

Anyone have the answer?

No but my stuff doesn't work like it did before either. Pictures don't show up, vids don't play, thumbnails search forever.

Re: Posting Pics and Vids

Youtube links must not contain fillers such as playlists or use any short URL or use https:// in order to embed in a player here on TC. I routinely change peoples links to embedded players for them.

Photos uploaded to the site by paying members always create nice expandable thumbnails.

If you link from an off site web sharing site with "image tag" links you have to set the permissions to public on your share and on the actual pictures in some cases. On some so called free photo share sites making your photos public means you wave your rights to them and no longer own your own photos, and the photo sharing site can and will sell photos to advertisers. SO read the fine print of that UELA before you click I agree.

As to chrome, it like most Google services is geared to harvest information about you, Gmail has the right to read all your mail, in exchange for free service and both use that data to tailor advertising to you. It is not a secure or even a great browser. Use FireFox IMHO.

Re: Posting Pics and Vids

You got the video in your test but you forgot to use image tags for the picture. You can manually insert them or just use the little icon above in the message tool bar that is yellow and looks like a mountian and the sun in the corner. When you hover it says insert image as the tool tip. Click-it and paste your image location there and then click OK.

You will get this:

Have at it gents.

Re: Posting Pics and Vids

Image address between the image tags and here ya go with a picture:
[im-g] http: addy (remove the spaces in the im-g) [/im-g]



Or do the same with the address [ur-l] and get a link to the picture:

P.S. - don't want anyone to think I have a gas can fetish or something... I was just in the process of getting ready to ask about different gas cans, storage, etc. and got real frustrated when I couldn't post a pic... Now I can, so look out world LOL.
