Hi, I've been trying to upload an image to a Forum Thread in the Meadhall, but it hasn't worked. I have used the "Upload Image" button, and pasted in the URL for my image (a Tumblr page), but all that comes up is a small box with a "?"

Ive tried in both Safari and Firefox with the same results. The "Insert Link" button is working, however.

I seem to be having the same problem, when I try to insert an externally-referenced image via a URL. All previously-posted images using the same format, image-link/URL, seem to be working fine; it's just new ones with this problem. Is this related to the hacks? :confused:

I've seen some pictures uploaded post-hack (e.g. here (http://stoicstudio.com/forum/showthread.php?940-Factions-Screenshot-thread!-Post-Awesome-moments-here!&p=24052#post24052)), but it seems that these are locally stored as the URL-root is stoicstudio.com etc.

Sorry you're have trouble, gaelvin! Try using this (http://25.media.tumblr.com/ea1fff06cd75d30473b3715055260b8f/tumblr_mtv9y1uLrp1ruorzmo1_r1_1280.jpg) link instead. I'm wondering if this problem could be the result of posting a link to the Tumblr page associated with this image, rather than a link to the image itself.

Nice work, by the way!

Thanks, that did the trick... looks like Tumblr changed how things work a little bit since the last time I did this. Now I know I need to first open the link, and then the image to get the right URL.

Thanks,Guğmundr :) Turns out that my problem with images hosted at dropbox (public folder) had a similar solution. It all depended on how I generated the link, and what it targeted. Check the two links, pointing to the same image, but with a different starting url:

Only the second one can be inserted in the ... tags here:
