Re: Box Account Embedded Image Test

Your Box Account links are not to photos. The links would need to end in something like /myphoto.jpg. or lookatthis.gif
Your links were like this gibberish which is being blocked.
This however would get your photo...
https://app.box.com/representation/f...2048_jpg/1.jpg
followed by your security key ...?shared_name=l0l0k31x57ine3rw0rhc6ren1jq7l1tn
to dispaly inside image tags like this....


PhotoBucket seems to be much easier to use

Re: Box Account Embedded Image Test

That's what I was trying first, adjusting the link to end in a good .jpg, .png, ETC.

Re: Box Account Embedded Image Test

Thank you Brian and Doug for looking into this.
I agree that posting an embedded image using Photobucket is much easier then with Box.
I was just trying to get my Box account to work because I am much more familiar with it's functions.

I guess I'll be spending some time in Photobucket to learn it's Ins & Outs.
I don't mind... it's kinda fun learning new things.

Thanks again to all the members at TC for their ongoing support!

Re: Box Account Embedded Image Test

I think I figured out this whole Box / Photobucket thing...
Box




I was on another computer that runs on Windows 10 OS, and using Firefox as a web browser... nothing I did would get Box images to embed.

I switch back to the older computer using Windows 7 OS and Google Chrome as the web browser and embedded the photos above (.... I hope).

I will probably go forward using Photobucket to embed my images into future post, but it was really bugging me why I was only able to get Box images to embed within the posts some of the time (I know.... I'm kinda weird that way )

Logged onto TC: Windows 10 + Firefox / Box: Windows 10 + Firefox
Open "shared image link" in Preview Post.
Right click "view image" and copy and paste web address into post box (shown below).
https://app.box.com/representation/file_version_188501858252/image_2048_jpg/1.jpg

I get this:
Code:
https://app.box.com/representation/file_version_188501858252/image_2048_jpg/1.jpg?shared_name=m2g7l8uw2x58nnjrz505jngyfiwixxvx
The forum software shortened your link, so it doesn't appear in full. This is your link above:
Code:
https://app.box.com/representation/file_version_188501858252/image_2048_jpg/1.jpg
The difference is you are not "grabbing" the name=m2g7l8uw2x58nnjrz505jngyfiwixxvx portion of the link, so I think that's why you are not getting it to work.

or.... Right click "Copy Image Location" and paste into post box (shown below).
https://app.box.com/representation/f...2048_jpg/1.jpg

Logged onto TC: Windows 10 + Firefox / Box: Windows 10 + Firefox
Open web address shown above > right click on image > copy and paste "view image" web address.
https://app.box.com/representation/f...05jngyfiwixxvx

Same as above... but clicked on "Copy Image Location"
https://app.box.com/representation/f...05jngyfiwixxvx
Note: The above address appears to match the address I got using Windows 7 and Chrome.

I am also going to try the following options:
Logged onto TC: Windows 10 + Explorer / Box: Windows 10 + Explorer
Logged onto TC: Windows 10 + Edge / Box: Windows 10 + Edge

Re: Box Account Embedded Image Test

Open "shared image link" in Preview Post.
Was able to post a "share image link" from Box, but when I opened the link and right clicked on the photo...
I did not see "View Image".... or "Copy Image Location" from the list of options that appear.

Below is a copy and paste of the Box web page address that displayed the photo from the "shared image" link.
https://app.box.com/files/0/f/281209...f_177736045004

The same as above happened during the Explorer test.
