[img] tags not working? need permissions?
« on: August 17, 2018, 11:02:33 AM »
Hi, I would like to make a post with some screenshots of an Aurora4x clone I am making but it seems [ img ] tags are not working?

Or can I be granted permissions if that's the issue?

Example image, can't see it:

You need to make at least ten posts for the forum not to automatically break any of your links, even in image tags.

I'm having the very same issue, but I have 75 posts. 

So does this requirement mean 10 posts for the whole entire message board, or 10 posts for each individual topic forum?  Because if it's the latter (as it seems to be)... that's stupid.  There is no way that I should be required to spam a board just so I can post an image.

Surely there is a way around this?

It should be ten posts total, anywhere at all.
What happens exactly when you try to post a link or an image?

Here's the exact link.  It's from my Dropbox account. 

https://www.dropbox.com/s/1fhuo3hn58az26x/Terran%20Republic%20June%202047.jpg?dl=0

If I attempt to use the "insert image" code, when I post the message there appears to be nothing at all.  The text of the link appears as if completely blank.  No code, no link, no image, no text, nothing.  However, when I go to edit the message, then I can see the bbcode there.  It just isn't working.

for example: 

i just bracketed the link above with the "Img" command but the blank spot after "for example:" is the result.

That's Dropbox's fault, they don't provide direct links to images anymore. You'll have to find another image host like imgur or upload your images directly to the forums (for that, when you're typing a post, click "additional options" and there should be an attach file box, you can edit your post later to put the uploaded image in with bbcode tags).
As you can see, your link itself came out fine.
