Default Why can't I attach images to posts anymore?

It would appear you can't attach images to your posts here anymore. While trying to post a write-up to the 2nd gen section, I tried to attach some JPG pictures with no luck. I've done this successfully many many times in the past & know the procedure, so that's not the issue.

Anyway, with the first image I attempted to post via "manage attachments" function, it refused and told me the image size was too big - mine was something like 4096 x 2048, and it said we're limited to 1200 x 1200. Ok, no problem - I used some software to reduce the image size down by 75% to 1024 x 512, tried to upload that JPG file instead and it still wouldn't work. What gives? A car forum that doesn't allow picture posting is pretty useless.

I don't have an answer for this particular issue but I can say that using an image hosting site (I use Flickr) is without a doubt the best way I've shared pictures. No attachments to open for the end user. . and all around easier for the poster.

What Zach said. Be aware some hosting sites make it almost impossible to embed your photos in other web sites (google anyone). I gone back to flickr as well for some of my pic posting needs.

Yeah, I thought about using one of the image hosting/cloud storage sites but that has its problems too as you guys mentioned. Would be much better to be able to just upload your picture here on RCC so it can be embedded right in the post - much easier for the reader and poster. We used to be able to do this; RCC forum is broken.

Hm. What happened to the flexibility of forum software? Has it all been bought up and sabotaged by faecesbook? No wonder open forums are on the decline... When the internet no longer allows you to discuss your hobby with like-minded people online without agreeing to sell your soul and integrity to the likes of Zuckerberg and his profit-making goons, what's the point?

Nope it is owned by the same person. Seems Instagram and other Social Media is the way to go these days Pete. If you're not showing the world everything you are doing it does not seem to be worth it anymore.

Where is Brian? He quit being a Mod?


Donate button is gone too...


Hey anyone here moderating this piece. Saw Ted the other day.

Gonna post some black boxes...

Will deleting spammers fix my attachment posting problem as described in post #1?

I really need someone to help out with moderation, maintenance and updates.

I would offer help but I am ignorant when it comes to moderation.
