I’ve seen there is a gallery function there (didn’t try it yet) but apparently one also is supposed to be able to posting images by dragging them from the folder in the text area of the post (if JavaScript is allowed to the forum). Which is the way that appeared to me more appropriate for early WIPs one only wants to talk about once.

It does display the image there, but when I click on “preview”, I only get a timeout after 30 sec, saying it is the 30 secs timeout, if the picture is big (which means the forum is trying to do something with the pic), or it simply doesn’t display the pic and displays a broken link in the text area (where previously was the picture) if it is small.

 

How do I understand all this?

That one actually should not be able to upload pictures this way, or is it broken function?

Drag and drop isn't something the current post box does. It converts it to a base64 version so it can process the image inline but this isn't a valid image extension. It's possible the image is too large, as base64 encoding does render a lot of text for detailed and/or larger images.

 

However is sounds like you might be having a more direct error with the timeout - by any chance does your browser say it's connecting to "mongotruck.com" during this? Or is it just while connecting to the B&C normally?

Alright, thx. So for uploading one only can use the gallery?

 

What is mongotruck? I was wondering anyway b/c wasn’t sure how much I need to allow this domain JS.

 

When trying to actually confirm a post with a dragged in image, it simply doesn’t send it.

Hosting the image somewhere online is best, as a member you get use of the B&C gallery which is a good local source for your WIPs but you can use any other image hosting site.

 

mongotruck is a request that fails from a code insert - it causes no harm but will delay posting. Blocking it's prevents this and may be part of the problem you're having with the page load speeds.

Ah, no, what I described is independent of mongotruck being allowed or blocked (tested both). But thanks again for the info.
