Default posting pictures

it seems a lot of people are having trouble with this since that other site sucks now.

1. Go to imgur.com
2. Sign up

3. Click on your screen name and select "images" then select "add images"

4. Select browse and find the image you want to upload

5. a thumbnail of your image will show up. Click on the image of your choice. the image will expand and give you a bunch of options, click "direct link" and copy it

6. go back to A.O. and and create a post to show everyone your cool picture (Press this button)


7. this prompt will show up. Paste your direct link


8. it will spit out the img stuff and your picture will show up.
like this one





now please stop using photobucket

If you copy the BBC code instead you can post it direct into the post and the picture will show up. Saves one step. Also, at the bottom of those links there is a box called "Sizes" you can choose the Thumbnail size to control the size of the picture you post. I usually use the large thumbnail.

I had trouble the other day with loading straight off my PC, which I have never had before. It said there was a security token not supplied, that it had to have.
Reloaded the same pics in a download, from what I'd already posted on my FB acct, it would accept them then. Not sure what token it needs have there, but, the roundabout method supplied it. However, since I switched from Firefox to Google browser, this site now says not secure in the header, and I've had some Malwarebytes hits on some threads, which I never used to get.

Agree with Dean2 ..... copy the BBC code this works much better for multiple pics.

Did that for those 7 pic's of all the junk people dumped in the Sylvan, copied the 7 - BBC codes then add some text into a Word or Outlook document then copied the entire content & posted it directly into the body of a New Thread, clicked on Preview Post & the story & all 7 pics appeared.

Much faster.
