[Forum bug] File attachment limit

Postby DGM » Mon Mar 19, 2018 11:50 pm

I'm trying to attach a png file to a post but I keep getting an error message: "Sorry, the board attachment quota has been reached."

I've never attached a file to one of my posts here before so unless my quota is zero I shouldn't be exceeding it. And I've noticed that others have been able to post images, so ...

Your (and everybody's) quota is zero. I wish they'd remove the ability to attach, but it's otherwise completely normal.

Load the image up to Imgur, get the direct link, and post that here within img tags.

The option should be gone now. Imgur is the way to go. Sorry about the storage/upload situation previously, guys.

To embed images, put the image url between the image tags like so:

Code: Select all

[img]https://i.imgur.com/klFAd6S.jpg[/img]

I did. The tags were created using the forum software button and the URL was copy-pasted, so everything should be correct.

The post is here if you want to check it yourself: viewtopic.php?f=17&t=32916#p116214

The url you posted was to the webpage. You need a link to the picture itself. Imgur will give it to you but I don't recall the specific steps off hand. It's on the right while you're looking at the image and logged in.

The image you need is "https://i.imgur.com/odwd4ML.png" which when put in like this

Code: Select all

[img]https://i.imgur.com/odwd4ML.png[/img]


And produces

To get the url you need, right-click on the image then select "copy image address" and paste the resulting url between the img tags. The image address should always end in ".jpg"/".jpeg", ".png", or ".gif"
