How to post thumbnails on bbforums?

Lika Sadradze 8 years ago updated by Sarah 8 years ago 2
Hello. First of all thank you guys for amazing job you've done!
I am trying to post a forum thumbnail, but it just wont work. And why there is no such option on img url list?
Answer
Sarah 8 years ago
While you are looking at the links to the images, there are a few options including small square or large thumbnail. Select the one you want and then copy the "linked BBcode" URL.

PROBLEM: You get a link directly to a JPG and have no way of finding the photographer attribution, caption, or comments. SOLUTION: A "find by filename" or "reverse lookup" feature where you paste the JPG filename and it takes you to the full imgur page.

This link could be under Tools, or in the upper-right, wherever. Solves the only problem I have with this otherwise great service.
Answer
Alan Schaaf (Founder) 8 years ago
You can already do this really easily. Just remove the file extension on the end of each image and it will take you to the page with info about the image.

Change things back please or fix bugs.

Mark Keen 7 years ago 0

Imgur has been the best image hosting service since the day I discovered it. But now I'm having to find an alternative. I'm having issues since the update which doesn't seem to have done any good. 


When uploading pictures it will hang at 100%. When uploading multiple pictures it will upload them but only show me one image and I don't have access to the others. At first all the images were rotated vertically automatically and it took me almost an hour to rotate them using imgur. Counter rotating them using windows explorer before upload made no difference.

Issues with upload, image details, and more while logged in on Chrome

Tristan Harward 8 years ago updated by Alan Schaaf (Founder) 7 years ago 2

I continue to experience issues in Chrome/Mac (13.0.782), even after I e-mailed you a couple months ago, told you about them, and you said you might have fixed them :)


I recommend you simply download Chrome, open your site, log in, and attempt to get the URL of an image to copy.

Invariably there's a "cboxOverlay" or "cboxTitle" DIV that's block-level and overlaid on the entire screen or on top of a single JS popup. It blocks mouse clicks and interactions. I have to right click "Inspect Element" and remove the overlaid DIVs to get it to work, and oddly enough, this doesn't affect the page layout or function in the least.

Test in Chrome - you've got to trust their rendering above all others, given the crazy Acid tests it passes... and it's becoming even more popular than Firefox. I'd be surprised if you didn't see exactly the same bugs. Thanks!

Answer
Alan Schaaf (Founder) 8 years ago
I just tested the site using the exact same version of Chrome, and I did not experience this issue.

Could you please try it on a different computer? I have no doubt that you're having trouble with it, I just can't reproduce it.

Don't Delete Images from the Gallery Due to Downvotes

Nicholas Viggiano 7 years ago updated by Sarah 7 years ago 0

There's been a tendency lately for people to downvote images due to lack of understanding about the topic presented, or a personal dislike toward the topic, despite the actual quality of the image. This causes perfectly good images to be lobbed out of the gallery because the users who would actually upvote weren't online at the time. So, the obvious solution is to not auto-remove images due to downvotes, but only for requests for deletion, for actually offensive/inappropriate images.

Mobile site notifications

Amanda Gillispie 4 years ago updated 4 years ago 0
It's great that we now have notifications of replies on the mobile site, but there need to be 2 improvements.

1st is that we need to be able to clear all notifications in one or two easy clicks, as clearing each individual one will require at least 2, often 3 or more clicks per notification (which is a lot when I reads that I have 56 on a mobile phone).

2nd is that the notification numbers need to have parity with the same number on the full website. Again, using my situation as an example, I have 0 reply notifications currently on the desktop site, but my same username on mobile is reading as having the above-mentioned 56.

Hopefully these issues will be addressed soon, but the first is definitely of higher importance in my opinion. Thanks guys!

Albums broken when zooming on chrome

Tim Etler 8 years ago updated by Alan Schaaf (Founder) 8 years ago 0
When viewing an album on chrome, if you zoom in or out (mostly with out), navigation will not offset images properly.

To reproduce:
1. Go to an album in chrome with more than a couple images (at least 4?)
2. Navigate through images using either the arrow keys, or clicking images directly.
3. The images are shown in between images instead of being fully in the frame.

Hover Zoom Error

Mark Cowan 7 years ago updated by Sarah 7 years ago 0

Hi,


I'm running the Hover Zoom on Chrome. For a while now I've noticed that sometimes when I hover my mouse over a thumbnail in Imgur's gallery a different image will pop up (exhibit A - http://imgur.com/qTKNP) Or sometimes there'll be an image not found error message. 


Clicking the thumbnail does lead to the correct image, so that's no worries.


Always enjoy your website.

Account holder loses "URL upload" option

Braden McGrath 9 years ago updated by Alan Schaaf (Founder) 9 years ago 4
If you don't create a free imgur account, you get an option to upload directly from a URL.  This is handy for rehosting images off of a 3rd party site where you don't want to steal their bandwidth when you post the image on a forum.

Once you have a free account, there's no more option to use the URL "upload."  Minor pain in the butt.  Would be nice to see this fixed or added.

Hi Alan/Sarah. 

I love this site and the people on it and you guys for creating it. I also welcome the new changes. But unfortunately these new changes are inviting some sick twisted weirdos that post paedophilic images that just pop up. And I'm not exaggerating either. I have reported everything each time but this is really getting out of control. Could you please try to remedy this. There is no love lost between us as I still love you guys and fully understand that your intentions with these changes were for improved interaction between users and the site itself. But this scares the shit out of me and is vomit inducing. Thanks guys, Loads of love to you as always.
