    I dont think so, its just interesting, I'm looking for reasons why you couldn't access it on mobile. The first thing I thought of was DNS resolution issues and hitting the correct IP address would have helped diagnose that.
    My home internet connection went down yesterday, so I didn't have WiFi.

    I couldn't connect to thedarktower.org with my cellular data plan. The same as Brian mentioned above.

    I assume this is an anti-Brian conspiracy.
    Gotta be lol. Looks like it's working now.
    What makes you such a special Brian?? I thought we all were sticking together!

    Iíve been digging and I think I have found the issue...

    "A real limited edition, far from being an expensive autograph stapled to a novel, is a treasure. And like all treasures do, it transforms the responsible owner into a caretaker, and being a caretaker of something as fragile and easily destroyed as ideas and images is not a bad thing but a good one...and so is the re-evaluation of what books are and what they do that necessarily follows." - Stephen King

    Many years ago, a boss of mine sent out a questionnaire to get to know her team better. One question asked what name you prefer to go by. Just because, I said T-Bone. I was officially T-Bone to the team for the next few years!

    I tried to host about 20 pics in the gallery here. I get a message saying the file sizes are too large to process. So I checked on file size limits (to know how much to resize them) and it says I have unlimited file size and capacity.
    So I hosted them on Google photos and several members say they can't see them (in Starkblast threads: Fottergraphs, Landscapes and wildlife, flowers, Bearrrs and The Palaver Castle). I see them just fine and they aren't particularly large.


    Help!!


    Here is one of the photos in question:

    Even if I go directly to that image, I get the same image seen here. FYI, unlimited file size and capacity refers to total limit for hosting images, not to the individual file size (pixels, and or actual file size).

    Jon, The image you posted is not in the format recognised by the site. It has to reference a file that ends in a recognised graphic file type like .jpg, .jpeg, .png or .gif

    Yours is a link to your hosting site and looks like this:

    Code:
    https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/c9taJ73svzT4Mhi3KAdEyLtVDxaX5DjW8Nyz_nwHG-xlo7jc-hk4yFP2ky1CZZq8lPvEnGvi9dv5woZr3ZZ5bjHZB2v1lCaQ7eurhdVQ3qWhmTlVcBw3yOmWbFeieOGKyBN6mb5GaJfC8LrEgeQKuNDcd0PdJoc0-xRyMdM-lzSffsFPKMUGQGVMX_Z4nOCh00mP5FPNcAo8pMh5s793g8qUHgtsaLGLIQeHbYoSMx4u_WuKmZ3jcTQul4ZEb_dKqkJ1GsjdKff3-waALVGNXfEspWykW4ht6uiJpNpNE81mfy6VklpXYLJOiPDKvoxvo292IeUwCgT6EypuZLsWs0v02k_S2wbf-h8El3Nl3JKXwgbHrShxD45kWhBHo9zVvAGCN_CQBBIasWQZbahaayO7sPbiCPsLUaZiLoqzvJpBth8LVg0Suu_cZ1WVG5rpl0W4d0sZ9-QHl6OXCugjYLs4jkr0cJfBHX5Tp52XL9E8AcVqg579i-Rdk-efYGPJPryct-7FAhutw4TzP_vxWw4132L42kndzAjv10Y1ZiTu_yhZaWCsBX6pOArCfRXrOrCwvSFAgw1jmC88_akpLK6R5Qa03pBbduegNk0ewjiNrNKobVfTp8xPMvryo7hASzG_O6kcImPafrNQK0QIDTcdJOFzUlu6SoY35ix39RkYaGo4meZ2W5j3CAsK=w872-h654-no?authuser=0
    You can probably see it because you are are logged into your hosting and it redirects automatically for you.

    Now the other post you made #3009 looks fine, because its a link to an actual image:

    Code:
    https://i.ibb.co/GHRStbF/20200717-144407.jpg

    yeah, thats what the settings say but I think we are hitting a limit elsewhere in the system. I don't think we can actually upload images that high res...

    A lot of the hosting sites have some sort of menu where you can find the direct link to the image. The image itself is (by definition) a graphic file, it's just the hosting obscures the link to the actual file itself.

    Rule of thumb, no matter how long the url is that you post, if it doesn't end with an image file type, it's unlikely to work properly on the site.

    Facebook is notorious for this. You can't copy/paste anything from that site. They always completely obscure the URL.

    I'm an old man. I should have just stuck with BB code anyway. If I hadn't tried to use the uploader here at the site I would have seen the full code and noticed the ending was not right.
    You fancy,Schmancy young whipper snappers with your HTML codes...
