Hi,

you need to find the embed URL for your photo from flickr (see https://help.flickr.com/en_us/share-or- ... -rJBx6mjyX) and then put text like this in your post

Code: Select all

[img]https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/50137099548_be9ddb10ce_b.jpg[/img]
Obviously replace the URL in the example above with the URL for your image.

cheers,

Robin

Hi Robin

I am trying to post an image in the gallery as I have done many times in the past but I am now getting an erro message when I go to add my attachment:

ERROR
Sorry, the board attachment quota has been reached.


The image does not exceed the file size limit.

Hi Bruce,

try again now – it looks like there was a default limit to the total size of the attachments for the whole forum system which we had reached (500 MB so far). I've increased the limit since I think the hosting plan has unlimited storage and we should be good to go again.

Cheers, Robin

Hi Robin

I have posted the image of Jupiter above and I wish to delete the two posts that refers to Jupiter since it does not belong in "Posting in the Gallery". Unfortunately it does not allow me to delete these 2 posts myself. I have reposted it where it belongs. Thanks!

Cheers, Rick
