Pictures not loading, what am I doing wrong?
« on: May 13, 2012, 10:44:40 PM »
Hello. I'm not sure what I am doing wrong but the pictures in my posts are not showing right like here:

http://elliquiy.com/forums/index.php?topic=139635.0

I've tried hosting the picture on photobucket and then on my personal webspace with the same result. The odd thing is that when I preview it, it looks fine. So I don't think it is the source. The code I am using is the following (without the ... of course):

[...floatleft][...img padding=10 width=269 height=238]http://http://home.comcast.net/~stef82/images/Mixed_Resized.jpg[/img][/floatleft]

You have an extra http in there. You need to clean up the url code and have just the image link in there.

Code: [Select]

Also, you don't need to set both height and width parameters. If you set just one parameter, the forum will automagically resize the other parameter to keep it in proportion. That's not affecting your image showing up, but might make it easier for you in the future.

Was ninja'd by the lovely Wicked Witch, but yeah, was going to say the same thing about the extra http, didn't know about the automatic width adjustment, though.  :)

That same thing happened to me today.  It's not a frequent thing but does happen now and then.
