Thank you, I put up an image of a flashlight.
just one little time change so a draft board in 1968 turns down the bribe to accept "bone spurs" and we are home-free.

Was it meant to go in a thread? I'm sure you know this but all you need to do is copy the image address over here and use the img tags:

Don't put off until tomorrow, what you can put off until the day after.

My usual log in was rejected.  Was I supposed to have a different p/w?  I didn't find any PMs re this.  Thanks.

Sorry six. Are you saying you want an account set up on the image host?

Yes.  Please.  I somehow thought we automatically had one, but, yes.  I tried to log in and it didn't recognize me.

Sorry for the delay. It's up and running for you now (check your messages).

Don't forget your admin is top, right corner. It's easy to miss.

So I uploaded a test image and feel stupid because I haven't a clue how to post it, now that it's been uploaded.  I assume one clicks the photo image in the list of tools above this frame and inserts code into it, most likely the info in the url, but that doesn't seem to work.  So I'm stymied.

Just copy the address of the image into the [IMG] tags. Like this:

That's just what I did, and nothing happened.  Maybe you have some special skills.  ???
Let me try it again..



I did it again just now, and all I see is blank space.  I'm going to leave the code embedded in this post so you can look at the source and see if there's something wrong with it.  Thanks.
p.s.  Those flowers are growing in my front yard.

You're linking to the image in the gallery/album rather than the actual image itself.

This bit: index.php?album=6pairsofshoes&image= is causing the problem.

If you click on the image so it shows outside your account panel (your admin link should disappear), then copy the address and it should look like this:

https://imghost.diasfora.co.uk/albums/6pairsofshoes/IMG_2725.jpeg

Paste that in the img tags.

You'll then have to click "back" where the image is in your browser to get back to your panel. Or just reload it.

Thanks.  I didn't realize that I needed to take that extra step.  This is very helpful.
I altered the post above and the image appeared.

If you keep all your images in the "6pairsofshoes" album and don't create a new one, all you ever need do is use that address and just change the image name at the end. If you create a new album, the part before the image would need to be changed too. Like this: ....imghost.diasfora.co.uk/albums/new_album/new_image.jpeg
