Hi I keep getting messages saying I am not allowed post images with a certain extension. They're all taken directly from google images. Is it something up with my account?

What are the URLs of the images you're trying to post unsuccessfully?

Sometimes I have the same trouble from imgur and Twitter. My work around is rather than saving the image(s) as you see it and then uploading it, select view image first. From there, you can save the image to your pc and upload it to your gallery like normal.

I usually get this jpeg and jpg. Try saving the file as a .png, I've never had this issue with that extension :tu:

Hi!
I have the same issue, and the aforementioned message always shows up, as I try to add an image to my post. Worst of all, my galley doesn't work, it says that there is a database error.

How are you trying to get to your gallery? You haven't created any albums yet, so you'll have to do that and upload images to your gallery before it is usable. One path to your gallery is to go directly from the B&C pages via the drop down arrow that appears next to your name at the top left of the screen. The other main path is to open your profile and then select your gallery from the menu at left, beneath your name.

I tried it the second way as you wrote, opening from my personal profile. But then an error page opens up: 

 

www.bolterandchainsword.com Driver Error

 

And I tried to attach images the other way, using outher source URL but then again an error message apperas, that the file extension is not supported... I tired various file extensions, none seemd acceptable.... I'm a bit confused, as years before, with an other account I didn't have any problems...

I'm having the same problem when trying to reference photos from my Slickpic account, although it sometimes works

 

URL is as follows (to give an example)

https://www.slickpic...ZTVl/photo/1600

 

Is there any suggestion as to how I can get this to work?

The image needs the file extension (e.g. .jpg, .png) otherwise the system won't like it. If you click through to your URL you can get this:

https://stored-edge.slickpic.com/MTI4ODMxNWUyODY5Njg,/20190409/MTU5NjQ2MTk2ZTVl/p/1600/ReconSquad.jpg

Which will display normally when inserted as an image:

Unfortunately, that's not the case now. I've used pics with direct links off internet, even uploaded to imgur [ https://i.imgur.com/WL9CbZH.jpg ]

Using a picture with tags typed in by hand (both and format!) resulted in the "you're not allowed to use that extension" error message.

Using the image-insert button resulted in same {img=https://i.imgur.com/WL9CbZH.jpg} code, but the post was allowed.

This seems to be some issue in the permissions system, where the WYSIWYG editor is permitted to embed but the user is not. Not an issue with links used or the code.

ARGH, apparently I can't because the forum autoedits and interprets them even if I use code tags and / or use {} brackets instead. It didn't use to do that before the issues cropped up, that further indicates the auto-interpret coding as the culprit.

Here's a pastebin: https://pastebin.com/yZ9B4vpW

I assume this happens wherever you try to post (i.e. different sections)? It's a bit odd, I will need to do some investigation.

 

For context, when I paste your code in here:

Hi ...I amposting this here as it seems to be related to the original issue

 

I just wanted to update on my WIPlog and after putting the Direct link info in and attempting to post, it gave my te following error 

You are not allowed to use that image extension on this community."  

 

Process seemed to workk just  fine I did  that a couple of weeks ago ?

 

Thanks in advance,

 

Xin

From the bolterandchainsword.com, going to my gallery, then pic selecting. I copy the URL from "Direct link to this image" then post it in the toolbar in my post-to-be. It even shows the pics correctly but the error message pops up when I try submitting the post.

Thanks all around!

 

Seems to work now... the mysteries of the interwebs.... I`ll  try to put up some pics. Maybe just a hick up on my browser ?

I`ll put  up the URLs  if I run into the problem again!

 

 

 

Hope I didn`t  bother too much…
