Posting an image in the forum

Recommended Posts

Hi there all,

AVSIM seems to of changed since i last made a post and added an image. For some reason i'm having trouble this time. When i click the add image button on the forum post i enter the URL of the image which i have got from uploading the image to dropbox, I then get an error from AVSIM telling me i cannot use this file extension on this community? 

 

I have edited the image and re-saved it as a different file type and then repeated the above process but i'm still getting the same message.

Does anyone have any idea what i am doing wrong? It would be a great help as i can't really post my topic without adding the picture.

 

Thank you,

Michael.

I have never gotten an answer to this same question.

I get the same error message (for some time now) even though I follow the Forum's instructions exactly.

Simply gave up trying to post images here.

 

Cheers,

Jeff

AVSIM uses the BBCode so your link has to be a BBCode type link.  Most providers give you a BBCode link.  If not, you can also click on the Image icon in the menu of your post.  Copy and paste the link into that space.

 

I hope you both have had the opportunity to read the detailed instructions posted by one of our creative members - http://www.avsim.com/topic/479802-how-do-i-post-a-screenshot/

 

If you have further questions, please post them here.

 

Best regards,
