    Why is it impossible to post photos?

    thumbnail_IMG_3396.jpg: Exceeds your quota by 51.5 KB. <a href="misc.php?do=attachments" target="_blank">Click here to view your attachments</a>

    WHat does that even mean?

    Every once in a while I decide to post a pic. Then I quickly remember why I never post any pix.

    I don't use photo bucket.

    Seriously, I don't understand why it's so difficult.

    Its been a thing on here a long time. I put all my shared photos are in HBC photos, I edit everything to 500kb and still get a error message. Even down to 200kb stll won't let you, the only way I can post them is by using a desktop computer with Foxfire I have to open two tabs with HBC up, copy from one paste to the other.

    Upload your photos to an Imgur account, you can upload using their mobile app or via desktop

    go to Imgur and copy the BB code for the pic, theres a blue button that says copy



    paste it into HBC reply box

    It will look something like that ^

    but display like this when you post it

    and if you don't like the size, go to the bottom and select something different before hitting 'copy'
    Glad to say I have hunted Northern BC

    Don't click the "insert image" tab at the top of the HBC reply box. Instead go to the image hosting site and copy the BBCode for the photo you want, then paste it directly into the HBC reply box.

    This site has always been horrible for posting pictures, not sure why that button is there and should we have to go to a 3rd party site to post, kinda silly.

    HBC also has a photo hosting gallery






    Upload a pic, then click on the pic in your personal gallery and right click on the mouse and select COPY IMAGE LINK




    Then go to your post on HBC you're making and type [img] ,then paste the link , and finish it with [/img] No spaces between the [img]xxxxxx[/img]

    It will display like this :

    Iíve been using this website (https://postimages.org/) to post images on here. Works great, no need for an app, and is easy to use.
    Think, don't just have thoughts.
