Posting Photos

Postby JackMahon » 29 Mar 2018, 12:38

Hello. I want to post a photo in an in-game message, either as a private message or a public message. I think I have done that once before, but I either forget how or never knew. This is all the information I could find in the archives:

Can I post images?
Yes, images can be shown in your posts. If the administrator has allowed attachments, you may be able to upload the image to the board. Otherwise, you must link to an image stored on a publicly accessible web server, e.g. http://www.example.com/my-picture.gif. You cannot link to pictures stored on your own PC (unless it is a publicly accessible server) nor images stored behind authentication mechanisms, e.g. hotmail or yahoo mailboxes, password protected sites, etc. To display the image use the BBCode [img] tag.

I don't understand the above. Can anyone help me out?

You cannot post photos in in-game messages. We do not allow any sort of screen shot or photo there. The info you are referring to in your post is I think for the FORUM, where you can post photos. But not in games.

EDIT: I think I may have misled people, sorry. I was talking about game-related screenshots or photos :) not general ones!

Wasn't it possible to post photos in public press of the games?

I think you used to be able to link images? And have them show up?

yes. Still is as far as I know, but maybe it doesn't work now because of the move to https

But that is not what the OP wants. He is asking about putting images into in-game messages, not the PP.

Wait... does this mean the images that used to accompany "Something Happens" catastrophes no longer work? :o

Can it be that pics in Public Press (Shoutbox) don't work actually? :?

The right tag for puffs in public press is
