File Extension for Posting Screen Shots

Recommended Posts

Hello, I read through the picture embedding tutorial in the screenshots forum but when I try to create a post using the IMG tags I get this message:

"You are not allowed to use that image extension on this community."

 

This seems to be caused by the fact that when posting full-size pictures from photobucket, it uses the file extension .jpg~original rather than just .jpg.  If I edit the link so the file extension is just .jpg it will post fine, but it will be a resized picture instead of the full-size picture.

 

Is there anyway that Avsim could allow the use of this longer file extension?  Or maybe other photobucket users have found a way around this?

Many thanks


Dave

It's not about us allowing that, as much as it is Invision Power Board implementing it into their coding (or this software suite we call the AVSIM forums).

 

I'm not currently aware of any way around this, but perhaps another AVSIM member has figured this out?  TBH, I've never seen any extension with that ~ mark at the end of it.


Sincerely,

Thanks Chase, it appears to be photobucket's strange way of differentiating between the original-sized photo and the version that it automatically resizes when I upload it...why i can't just directly link to the full-size photo I don't know.  Maybe I'm doing something wrong and one of our intrepid fellow members can point me in the right direction :)
