    Hmm, no images showing using ‘source’ on upload? All displayed OK in the preview browser but on upload all that appeared was text.

    Hmmm, we will look at this, maybe better you use the attachment feature at the bottom.   Pictures work fine that way and when you click on the, they open large.  In the meantime we will have our developers look at the issue of bringing in photos from the photo feature above.

    Please consider posting images like this in the community page. They will be more visible and people can rate and comment on them.

    Thanks, good to see you here.

    Kevin, many thanks, appreciated.

    I do prefer to host all images on my site rather than upload images on multiple sites as attachments. I also wanted to upload these images as a series.

    This snag apart, it’s good to be here.

    I’ve made a report on this so we’ll see if it can be fixed.

    This is a work-in-progress and the ‘img’ button is confusing and does not work using an embedded URL… the button should likely be removed if possible

    At this point and without some serious modification of this site’s WP specs, it is not possible to insert a link to your own site and have the image display within the post.

    In order to do that, the host site must be white-listed and must also support a protocol used by WordPress called ‘oEmbed’. There are various sites that are white-listed which include: Cloudup, Facebook, Flickr, Instagram, Photobucket, SlideShare, SmugMug, Speaker Deck, Tumblr, Twitter, and others…

    However if the image is attached to the post (as I have done with two of the images here), it can be additionally inserted into the post’s text. As shown here

    Thus it appears within the post and in the footer as a thumbnail of the attachment.

    Chris, many thanks for your efforts, much appreciated.

    For the moment at least and for the reasons I highlighted earlier, I’m not keen on posting images to threads as attachments.

    I’m having difficulty removing my content on this thread, there seems little point in it remaining. However it could be useful to leave your content here in case other contributors are trying to have images upload to threads on photopxl directly from their own websites.

    Thanks again.

    Keith

    Given this is an image sharing site I am somewhat surprised and dissapointed about this issue.

    I understand this is a software thang, but on other sites such as Luminous Landscape, GetDPI, the Leica Forums and many more, I and many other contributors host our images on our own websites and yet using the image tag or source our images can appear directly within threads without problem and without uploading as attachments.

    I’d love to be posting images to this brand new and exciting photography resource but with the current software limitations I’m stymied.

    I really do wish this site well – God knows we need it!

    We have a meeting on this today.  Our developers are clever.  We will see what we come up with.

    Keith, I believe the method you wish to use where your site hosts the inserted images will work if your website uses Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure (HTTPS).

    This changes the URL to be https rather than http and requires a SSL certificate.

    Thanks, Chris.

    I’ve looked into getting  SSL certification in the past but this is a pay for service via my web host and frankly now that I’m no longer in business I would have no other use for it. It’s not as though I need SSL certification to contribute images to other forums.

    Well, there you go, it seems having SSL certification on my site has indeed allowed me to post images here that are hosted on my website.

    Result.
