This doesn't seem to work from your pictures on your hard drive or am I doing something wrong?
I do the upload attachment but still get the message:

The image must be at least 0 pixels wide, 0 pixels high and at most 580 pixels wide and 580 pixels high. The submitted image is 1175 pixels wide and 580 pixels high.

Perhaps I am doing something incorrect but, it doesn't seem to want to work. I'm trying to use my smart phone to post (it is all I ever use now) and I'm not having luck.

Here's what you posted:

Code: Select all

You have both img and fitimg tags in there. Got to get rid of img, and html. It should look like this:

Code: Select all

No, it doesn't work for images on your hard drive. They need to be hosted somewhere.

Doesn't seem to be too friendly for a smart phone without having to remove some of the code after copy and paste.

From photobucket, the easiest way is to copy the direct link, then paste it between the fitimg tags. Grabbing the link with img tags makes extra work.

Doesn't seem to like DropBox. It calls on the URL but doesn't show the image.

How did I do that tricking thing?

This fitimg function seems to love PhotoBucket, but for DropBox just shows a big square with a question mark in the middle. Perhaps I'm doing something wrong.

I'm not familiar with dropbox but just did some research and it looks like images need to be in your dropbox "public" folder if you want to post them elsewhere.

You're copying the wrong link. Looks like you copied the Dropbox page url instead of the image url. In Firefox, just right click on the image, select "Copy Image Location," and paste that mess between the [fitimg] tags.

It will look like this:

Code: Select all

[fitimg]https://photos-1.dropbox.com/t/2/AABpyPfJQmL2S-lg_Ala6eR-R8Mlgc6LD4yBVOGfMRWGTA/12/263265542/jpeg/32x32/3/1473112800/0/2/3gold.jpg/ELDzlPYBGIYCIAcoBw/TXK3PzEebYyMnhgUWX5oRCjljaJm3KKLLiw7WZu-0lo?size_mode=3&dl=0&size=1024x768[/fitimg]


and display like this:
