I can't post images? Attachment invalid?

Postby ReptileLover567 » Fri Sep 12, 2014 9:19 pm

For some reason, whenever I try to attach a picture to a post, it says that the attachment is invalid. I can post pictures if I click upload attachment, and go to my camera, take a picture, and immediately attach it. It's just not letting me attach anything from my gallery. Does that make sense? I'm not the greatest at explanation, but I would really like to post some pictures of Jaxom.

The upload attachment option is for uploading pictures from your computer to the website into a thread. If you want to post pics of Jaxom from your gallery, you will need to copy the URL of the picture by right clicking the picture and click "Copy Image Location". Then, in the full editor, click the "Img" button and paste inbetween "img /img" (had to remove brackets to retain code). Click "Preview" to make sure the pic will post before posting thread.

Example of a pic from gallery using "img /img" (had to remove brackets to retain code):

Hope this helps!
