Posting pictures help

Recommended Posts

Okay what am I missing here? I can’t figure out how to post pictures from my iPad or iPhone. I used to do it all the time but can’t figure out how to do it since the site got rebooted.

It's best to upload them to an image hosting site, such as Post Image, then paste the image link here. 

Ok thanks. So there isn’t any way to just post them from your phone anymore?

I was never able to. Images were always too large. Plus, with the new hosting limits, getting a link is just better for the site. You can use Post Image from mobile pretty easily.

On Dreamhost we had 1 TB of storage. Here we have only have 50 GB, so turning off image uploads was one of the first things I did. when we got back up and running. 50 GB may sound like a decent amount of storage but if we let everyone upload images directly then we could run into a problem down the line where our only real option would be to purge everything and break a ton of threads in the process.

 

Get something like the Imgur app, their mobile site is shit but there's both official and third-party apps for uploading to it.

Also I remember there was an issue when you uploaded images that you'd reach a limit and it was hard to delete your personal images.

 

Personally I'd always do the URL way. Something doesn't feel right about hosting it and storing it on the website directly.
