@Rico – You’re pretty close. The pop out light box thing is a IMG instruction inside a URL instruction. Here’s a screengrab of the basic code. . . You replace the xxxxx’s with the pic’s URL; so yours becomes . . . Voilé! Actually, your pic is so large, it opens a separate window. (Smaller pics do the shaded, pop-out thing)
@ricorides, hmm. There shouldn’t be. Is it a really long TR (words/pictures)? What’s it doing when you paste and submit it? Shoot me an email with what you are trying to paste to email@example.com
The first version had full size photos, and the code formatted to pop them out in a new window. I guess it was too much for the uploader to handle at once. I had another idea. Start with only part of the TR, with the formatted pop out photos. Upload only part of the TR, then keep hitting the edit button, and adding more of the TR each time. I didn’t try this.
Just spent over an hour working on a trip report. Worked with the small images, but now when I made the images pop out, the uploader fails and the TR won’t upload. Tried posting in multiple segments, still fails. Really the only reason I’m posting is due to the banter going back and forth about the forum issue…..as a long time user and poster I don’t want to see the forum die and want to do my part to help out, but I’m so effing disgusted right now…..the new platform sucks, plain and simple.
Cbalke, not sure I completely understand your question, but it will allow me to post 5 or 6 photos with the code for images to pop out, but it appears there’s some threshold where if I have more images than that nothing in the entire post will report. i.e. I think I can post a trip report with 20 photos, but only a few of them can pop out and the rest need to be regular sized images…..
Earlier tonight it worked with all the images regular sized, but when I tired to upsize them is when I run into problems….
