Hi!

Post by captainrex803 » Sat Feb 20, 2016 7:43 pm

Hello, I'm pretty new to Toys N Bricks and forums in general, so I had a few questions about this whole thing works. I know some forums have size requirements on the files and photos uploaded, so I was wondering if there were any of those here. Additionally, when I did try to upload a compressed photo, I keep getting redirected to a blank page. I apologize for sounding so noobish on this subject, but I have no experience with forums. I hope to get to know this place well, and thanks for any help you can give me.

Hello!

Are you trying to upload a pic for your avatar or another purpose?

I am trying to upload a photo in a topic post, like uploading a MOC photo in my conversation, if that is easy to understand

I'm not sure why you are having the problems that you described. So just in case it helps I'm providing SOME info on uploading pics to the forum. Hopefully it will help.

If you are trying to upload a pic from flickr this link viewtopic.php?f=8&t=1024&start=20#p86097 may help

An alternate method of uploading pics is described below:
Lets see...
Below the field in which you are writing you would
step 1: click "upload attachment"
step 2: click browse
step 3: find the image in your files
step 4: click "add the file"
step 5: place your cursor where you want the pic in your post
step 6: click "place inline"
Done

I think that it is preferred though by admin that large files and things be uploaded though by an alternate method that involves uploading your image from sites such as flickr. The link that I provided may help you figure out how to do that. Its been a little while since I've done that but I'm sure that I or someone else can help if you still need help.

As for size limits for pics uploaded I'm not sure.

Btw I had no idea how to upload pic into the forum when I joined.

The moment I click the 'Add the File' button I go to a blank page. This also happens when I try to go to the preview page, so I really do not know what is happening. Perhaps I should consider making a Flickr account so I can upload photos easier. Thanks anyway though :up:

Welcome to toys N Bricks!
One thing you might try is using a different browser, or maybe update the one you're using now.

Thanks for the tip Brickbuilder0937, but I'm currently using a Chromebook...
So there are not really any other options.
