OK, I followed your link in the post before that last one, and it took me to ImageShack, to the page with the image.
I clicked the Get Links/Sizes button, and in the dialog box that opened, for Types, I clicked the dropdown and selected Forums.  That gave me a link with URL tags, which is the same format that Postimage presents for "Hotlinks for forums", so I copied that and pasted it here:

OK, that specific link presents the linked image, which is what I expected.  No additional steps required.  That would be my preference, but you should choose whatever works best for you.  I like "fewest clicks".

Well THAT is the most interesting thing I've seen today! Always nice to learn something new, thanks much ~

Since the forum update spammers have hit my email. Has this happened to anyone else?

Not any more than usual.  I haven't seen an uptick.

Probably a co-oincidence. I've seen an uptick on my other email addresses but not the one tied to my profile here...and that email is as public as emails get. I'd recommend talking to your mail provider or looking into their anti-spam options.

Just did, thanks much. Somehow it makes more sense than it used to. LOL

Ah, OK, is that why the new URL generates a 404 error, and we're back to the original URL, http://www.maschinenkrueger.com/forum/index.php?

I hadn't visited the forum since Friday, so I missed this post.

Looks like we need to upload our avatars again, too?

The link to the forum on the maschinenkruger.com website is still pointing to the /forum2/ URL.

Anyway, the forum theme is sweet, great job 👍

Wow... Looks good AND it works on my 'old' PC [and Windows 7+].  Thanks for all the work you do and keeping this site up and running. [And 'yes', I am b-a-d, for I haven't been here for awhile... Health issues and Family priorities... And now it's working on moving out of state... Someday - Just someday, I'll get something done and 'share']

But, I'm glad I checked in and I like the improved look/feel.

Bill, when you use the button for image insertion, it the pastes the old style square brackets of `` around the link you provide (if you specify width and height they will be included in the syntax)

UI has changed, but not the underlying engine.

I'm still on Windows 7. It was an over-spec'd laptop back in the day :D

Hi,

It's been a while since I could come on the forum, and I realize that there are no more photos on my posts.
Namely that I do not go through a photo host but by internet provider.
Rot you tell me how to reappear my photos.

Thanks

sounds like your hosting service is blocking. please send me an image url example.

Looks like the emoji option is hidden or otherwise unavailable.  It may be a browser issue for me locally, but I don't see the button anywhere here in the editor.

I've also noticed that if I use the MS emoji feature (on the keyboard, click the Windows button and the period button at the same time, to open a dialog popup, scroll to find what you want, click it, close the popup; I also use this when posting in German, for umlauts), the forum won't render the emoji.  Not a big deal, just interesting to note.

Testing again for it.  Yeah, I don't see the button in the tool bar across the top of the editing pane.

Trying now the other method I mentioned:

I clicked the Windows button and a period simultaneously, to open the popup
I scrolled and found a smiley, "beaming face", and clicked that.  It should show here: 😁

theBaron

OK, viewing my previous post, I can see the emoji there.  I'll come back and see if it still shows later.
