    still no honey here,

    click on hot link for pics and screen locks up,

    whereas if I put up the post or thread, then go back and advanced edit it, then they go up just fine.

    gimsquare-2.jpg gimsquare-1.jpg Strange. I just tried uploading multiples -- they worked normally. I still think it could be a cache issue on your system, especially with the weirdness with the old black template that happened. Don't know, and will keep trying to duplicate.

    gold_nobg128.png This time I tried it and I think I saw what you saw -- it didn't upload. But I tried it a second time and it worked. The lock up part may just be the upload time. I'm using fairly small picture sizes for testing.

    I just tried to add one to a post manually using the {IMG} code and it just didn't stick. Nothing showed at all.



    So let's see. Using the button

    View attachment 17697

    Ahhhhh, so they changed the BBC code for inserting images. Half to remember that.

    Now see if it will insert one from my computer.

    View attachment 17698

    First one is from a web link, second one from my computer. All is well using the GIMblack skin and the img button.

    Virtually all of the shots that I've loaded in the past are links to photobucket, using the photobucket formatting. Used to use flickr but that got screwed up. Wonder if flickr works now. Nope...

    The shot below is a file on my computer, that's the 1st time that's worked. Below that is a image file direct linked from a web page. That didn't used to work for me either.

    As far as I can see, the image attachment issues here are pretty much sorted out.

    working now,

    Dan said I had a caching issue in my computer,

    probably from being here way too much,

    anyway,

    logged out of gim
    cleared last 4 hours of browser history,
    closed FFox browser

    reopened browser
    signed into gim,

    went in to profile settings for Scorpio,
    changed default skin from simple black to gim black,

    came back here and tried to add a pic,

    used the 'insert image' hot button,

    now it is working

    I tried to link a photo from my flickr account but failed (I think). I was just on flickr where it says that the picture I tried to link has received 34 page views from GIM. I don't see it.

    In my post above, does anyone see a picture of the top of a statue sticking out of heavy surf?

    There is a small icon below the dog that indicates a failed picture. If GIM sends a request for the photo to flickr when the page loads, but then does not show the picture, that could explain why flickr shows a view count even though the photo is not displayed on the page.

    Interesting. I'm using Firefox and I don't see the box you are talking about, but I do understand what it is that you are referencing.

    Tom, I don't have a Flicker account so I have no help for you.

    I'm using Firefox too and there is no icon but when viewed in Chrome it's there. Never would have figured that one out.

    Anyone know how to link photos from flickr?

    Trying "copy image url" from flickr and the insert image button. Yeah! It works!

    Right because in your first try you linked to the page, not the picture. That's why nothing showed -- the browser was expecting to display a picture and when it found something that wasn't one it just did nothing.
