    pics not loading

    For some reason Im not able to post pics from my SmugMug account, it's giving me some temporary code invalid thing when I try. I used to be able to but for the last couple of months it's been a no go.

    Please help.

    skibum -

    I'm not sure that I can help as I typically don't use my online account for my pictures...I typically just upload the images. I just tried posting something from my flickr account into a forum test area and it worked just fine. I believe there's a certain method that each of these sites has to display pictures...hopefully that hasn't changed. Maybe someone with a Smugmug account can check this out. About a month ago, the forums were moved to another server for better performance, etc. If another Smugmug owner has similar problems, then it might be that would a pattern which needs looking into.

    Can you narrow down when this problem first showed up?

    I think that for an external source you need to post the link. But I have never done that.

    You could PM Kurt the embed code for the pictures and he could mess around with it. I would do it but currently away from full size computer.

    On my flickr account, I clicked on "share" for the image, and then clicked on embed. That gave me a series of codes which I copied and pasted. The image then was visible on the screen.

    Each site has its own protocol for how to do that.

    Iím having the same problem as the bum with my postimg account. Has worked for years and suddenly does not. Still works on several other forums. It is a MOA forum issue in my opinion

    Let's try attaching a pic from my computer, Insert Image, From Computer:
    CB175.jpg

    Seems OK. Let's try a picture from Flickr.

    Pasting their link directly into the message looks OK from here.

    Can't show you the line I pasted, the picture is being inserted again, even with the CODE wrapper. It's the URL with IMG wrappers.

    Using the FLickr Embed code, copy and paste into the message also works:
    20130405_091715

    Using the Insert Image Icon, From URL, I can't get any of my Flickr pictures to post, though I know I've done it in the past by editing the copied BBCode. I get an "invalid file" error.


    Lets try again with a web picture:


    That also seems to work, but checking the Retrieve and store locally box produces an error: "Upload failed due to failure writing temporary file."

    I know SmugMug took over Flickr some time ago, but I don't know if the two systems have been integrated yet.

    Something has definitely changed in sharing photos from SMUGMUG.

    SmugMug Picture Post

    This is a photo posted from Smug Mug



    To post it, I clicked the "Insert Image" icon and selected "From URL" then unchecked the box that says "Retrieve remote file and reference locally."

    Annotation 2020-06-25 103041.jpg

    I used the "Photo Only" option under Embed Photo at SmugMug

    Annotation 2020-041.jpg

    My guess is SmugMug has some security settings that have changed and don't allow downloading and storing the file on the forum server. But that is strictly a guess.

    I get the same error code when I try to post, it works on all other forums I use so I agree it seems to be an MOA issue. I don't know why your SmugMug works and mine doesn't?

    'bum -

    Did you use the same steps that Ted used? I think that's step #1. Could you post the specific steps you're taking and someone like Ted could use your steps.

    Ah hah! I missed that bit about unblocking the retrieve remote. Testing it with a shot of a nice camping spot on the southern shore of Newfoundland. Thanks for pointing that out.
