painter,

It still will not let the image picture post, just the ident as in your post, then you must click on it. Works the same way as the ? Mark.

Gentlemen,
I was not trying to cause a problem by asking the questions I did, thank you for trying to help me.

Dave, I know you just want to be successful at posting pictures as it is done elsewhere but this site is not conducive to that.
3 years ago there was a scheduled change of forum software to the "Good" stuff. Since then, ownership has changed of this forum. The guy running the place is gone, the guy that was herding the changeover has moved on, I just moderate the place and those in charge have not given any indication that a change is underway.
The choice is this.
Do what works or have no success at posting photos. I cannot fix the forum software but the owners might accept a rather large donation to obtain that software and change over to it. If you guys that are dissatisfied want to make that donation, have at it. $100K might be a good start on the expense.
Let me know and I will help you get in contact with the folks in charge.
Complaining is nothing but a waste of effort.

Curly,

I am not trying to give anyone a hard time, I did not understand until somebody posted that all this had been discussed before, that I was just spinning my wheels as to the upgrade. Neither did I know the forum had been sold. Being a pretty new member here I was just trying to find out why my pictures would not post directly, without using another host. I fully understand making money and if I had 100K to invest, I would open my own Grouse hunting forum and not care about the picture posting here on this forum.
I will continue to post using the ? mark, and advise members to click on the ? to see the picture.

Thanks for your knowledge.

Pine Creek/Dave

Well, I finally made the switch to 'imgur' tonight after years of being with Flickr, and before that, Photobucket. Both places are a bunch of jagoffs as far a$$ I'm concerned....

The reel you in, then convert to as pay service, and hold all of your photo's hostage.

Flickr recently went to a pay service, but is also offering a free service of 1,000 photo's.

Good if you only have 1,000 photos (or less). I had over 7,000 when I got the notice, and had to scurry around to do massive purged. Needless to say it broke years worth of picture link post that I had sprawled all over the forum.

But now, and ever since that, they've have a daily outages, and I'm just sick of it. Good bye Flickr.

Problem with 'imgur', is that will suffer the same fate, - they will get real popular, then we'll all get the notice: 'Sorry, - just too expensive to run a free service, - need to convert to a pay service.

So we'll see how long it lasts. At one point, the built-in SGW gallery was a viable option, now it doesn't work.

But Thanks Curly for posting the sticky for 'imgur', - seems to be working (for now).

Can you tell the admins that the Coppermine photo gallery isn't allowing people to write files.

Works fine.

Does not!

Noted.

Does the page link work for you Curly? I think that site doesn't allow hotlinks.

There are better hosts.

Odd. didn't work for me either.

But after I manually went to the link (seen while edited), not it shows up in the forum.

Test. I use the iPad app and do not see BBC link option to copy. So tried the copy link option and put between the IMG brackets. I found out that if you upload multiple pictures it places them in an album and you must click into each picture separately to get the right link. If you simply try to scroll to the picture on screen and copy the link it does not work properly and is likly copying the entire album link.

If you write up what is required on your MacBook in a manner that Mac people can understand I will quote you and put the quote in the IMGUR instruction topic.
I am rock stupid about anything Apple related.

Curly,

Roger that, here are the exact step I used.

1. I used your Imgur account block to set up my Imgur account. Start from SGW thread you want to add the picture too.
2. When your account is set up, click on the mid Icon far upper right of the screen, the Icon will look like an old language symbol, 3rd Ident from the White D in the Green Circle.
3. A white box will drop down.
4. Click on Images in the White Box.
5. Click on Green box (Add Images)
6. Click on Browse box - your home computer pictures will appear.
7. Choose the picture by clicking on it & click choose at bottom right of screen.
8. Your picture will be added to the IMGUR account.
9. Click on your picture, the multi ident box will appear, click on BB Code to copy picture.
10 Use back arrow on your computer to go back to your Shotgun World thread.
11. Click on edit then add the picture using the left click.
12. Post picture in thread.

These are the exact steps I use on my MacBook Air, to add full pictures to the Shotgun World Forum. It took me a while to understand I had to click on the picture in the IMGUR account to get the Code box to appear, you must choose the picture by clicking on it for this to happen.

Thanks for taking the time to add an explanation of using your MacBook Air with IMGUR.
I am sure that many Apple users will appreciate your help.
I have quoted your message and placed it in the IMGUR instructions.
Curly

I contacted IMGUR mystery solved bb code is NOT available on Ipads and Tablets or phones .>>>
On the article "FAQ for Forum Users"

https://help.imgur.com/hc/en-us/articles/115003264766

you will find the answer under "Where do I find BBCode?"

BBCodes are only available on the desktop website. Once you have uploaded your images, hover over an image and click "Get share links" to copy the BBCode.

I pasted my pic into URL

On my iPad I have the imgur app. I can upload photos and get the bbc link. I have to open the specific picture I want after upload, then tap on the picture, then a small icon that looks like a box with an up arrow on it pops up. Tap on box up arrow icon and select copy link. Paste the copied link between the [img] brackets obtained from the Img button in the editor and picture will appear. This was posted on my iPad. It’s the only way I browse this site.

It looks like Imgur is not going to be a good option going forward. I tried to sign up and they say it’s being turned off as of Aug 2019 unless you already have an account. I didn’t dig into it at depth but it doesn’t look like a viable option for new accounts. Any other recommended photo hosting sites? Everyone I was connected to has gone belly up over the years.

I've been reading thru this series on IMGUR because I had a ton of pics an videos on Photobucket, and they are now forcing joining for a monthly fee or severely removing most of my files. I've been trying to pare pics and vids away, but it's nearly impossible. That's why I read thru these IMGUR posts to see if that pic hosting sight was a place to move my stuff to. But it appears not.

So I started looking around and was wondering if anyone has looked into Shutterfly. I'm still looking for a Photobucket alternative, but before I wasted a lot of time, I thought I'd ask the forum. Below is what Shutterfly says when you go to sign up. I know - it sounds too good to be true. Any experience or thoughts?

I'm curious as to why you think IMGUR won't work for you. I've been using it since PB started charging a fee. I don't do videos, but haven't had any problems with pictures at all. Easy to use and the proper URL code strings are available to copy and paste for easy insertion into forums. I've never used shutterfly, so can't comment on it. IMGUR works just fine for me.

Do you mean this?

"Content or images containing non-incidental depiction of firearms, ammunition, or gambling."

You could have told me what it said. Who reads this stuff? I don't even know what 'non-incidental depiction means'. Because of your curt answer, I had to find it on my own. I simply asked if this was a viable alternative. How abut a, "Sorry, I don't think it will work because they don't want ammo or firearms photos?" Sheesh. You have been very helpful on hundreds of shotgunner questions. This time, you were found lacking. But thanks for letting me know.

Since I was unsure as to your actual intent I did not want to assume anything. Since I am not this guy, I helped the best that I could.

Obviously you survived actually reading something.
With your response, don't expect me to hurry to furnish any info in the future. You heard the story about the gifted horse?
You're welcome.
