Eh? You have a broken link to a page which returns a 403.

Yup. I just copied the URL to my clipboard, and pasted it in the address bar of my browser, and got a 403 error. That has nothing to do with the board software at all.

In my experience, the link you use to post an image must end with .jpg, .png, .gif, etc. That will be the link to the actual image file. In this case, you might try removing the "?size=800x600" from the end of url.

Code: Select all

In this case, it still doesn't work, which points towards the source file being in a location with restricted access. Not sure why it would work in an email and not here. I always make sure the image is the only thing in the browser when I copy the url, like this:

Image

I do this by right-clicking an image I want to upload and selecting "Open Image in New Tab". This should open the image file on it's own. The url for that file is then listed in the URL bar. Also, if the file is in a location with restricted access (e.g., a DropBox, Flickr, Picasa, etc. which requires a login to access), the image might show up for you if you are logged in, but it won't work for others who are not. I check this by viewing my post in a "Private Browser" such as Incognito for Chrome (Ctrl+Shift+N) or "Private Browsing" in Safari, which does not remember any of the sites I "stay logged in" on. Not sure what it's called for Firefox, but I'm sure there is an equivalent.

As a suggestion to everyone, use imgur instead of ImageShack. No pop-ups, sane ads, and easy to create albums and such.

I have been using Photobucket, and honestly, I can't find anything that is easier. They give you the img code once you upload the picture. Click the link and it copies it for you. Right click on the forum, and paste it. How is it easier?

What's the best way to do this? I haven't had luck with image shack or photobucket.

ImageShack and Photobucket suck.
