Adding Pictures to Comments

Skip to the bottom

  • @fuzzy  Jan 10

    Hey there!
    I seem to remember being able to add pictures to Soundboards and Comments.
    I just tried it on my own Soundboard and it didn't work out too well..
    Is adding pics still a thing?!?

    Let's give this a try....

  • @fuzzy  Jan 10

    Hmm....
    I'll figure it out somehow....

  • @guatecoop  Jan 10

    @writeandwrong seems to know...maybe you could help?

  • @ianuarius  Jan 10

    @fuzzy try to have a link that ends to .jpg or .png or one of those.

    Use imgur or something to upload if you don't have a better place.

  • @metalfoot  Jan 10



    here's a nightmare for you all!

  • @guatecoop  Jan 10

    Iโ€™ve done it before, but only by saving the pictures on the fawm hosting and pasting the link in my comment or post. Without the file hosting, Iโ€™m not sure.

  • @writeandwrong  Jan 10

    @fuzzy , it has to be a url for the actual photo. We're unable to add actual "file" photos. If the photo is not on the web, what I do is have the photos uploaded to a cloud-based site and make sure it's sharable on that side... then copy the URL for sharing and post that URL in the FAWM page.

  • @metalfoot  Jan 10

    yeah, I have my own hosting package so it's trivial for me to add photos to share here. Like the ominous looking guy in a hat just up there.

  • @fuzzy  Jan 10

    Thanx, folks!
    I'll just wait to post pics until my FAWM file hosting comes in!

    looks like a relative of @fuzzy

    PS - Sign up for a Imgur account - free image hosting

  • @w1n  Jan 13

    just a check

  • @pugetive  Jan 16

    Also trying to learn how to do this...but no luck!

    ...then edited to use the direct JPG URL, let's see if that works:

  • @swampjaw  Jan 16

    Trying it out (and stealing the URL from @w1n, as it's a handy image).



    (Yep, works. Just put a link in to a jpg file. What I pasted in was
    https : //i.postimg.cc/PxxXJScC/IMG-20210113-130817.jpg but without the spaces between the https and the colon. FAWM site does the rest).

  • @judypie  Jan 16

    I couldnโ€™t get imgur to work either @pugetive But https://postimages.org/ is way easier! Upload your image and then you will see underneath it, the โ€˜direct linkโ€™. Just copy and paste that in here ๐Ÿ˜

  • @chasingandromeda  Jan 16

    The key is that it must be a direct link to an actual image file. When you are viewing your image on imgur, right click on the image and select Open Image in New Tab. This should result in a tab that has the direct link to the image as the URL (it will end with the jpg extension). Post this and FAWM should display it as an image.

  • @pugetive  Jan 16

    @judypie @chasingandromeda @swampjaw Thanks folks, got it!

  • @sbs2018  Jan 16

    What's the code before the url? I tried <img src> but it doesn't work.

  • @ianuarius  Jan 16

    There's no code. Just post the url ending with the file extension.

  • @sbs2018  Jan 16

    Ah, thank you!!

  • @fuzzy  Jan 16

  • @fuzzy  Jan 16

    Ah!!
    There we go!!!

  • @ianuarius  Jan 16

    @sbs2018 That url is not ending in a file extension, i.e. .jpg or .png.

  • @sbs2018  Jan 16

    Let's try this -

  • @complexissimple Jan 29

    Testing

  • @fuzzy  Jan 29

    All I see there is a broken link, @complexissimple.

  • @seemanski  Jan 29

    Question is, does it work with gifs from giphy.

  • @davidbreslin101  Jan 29

    Let's see if this works from Imgur: click on image, go to "BBCode (messages and forums)", hit "Copy" button. (Image is a game board I made after writing a FAWM song about the game!) [img][/img]

  • @sailingmagpie  Jan 30

    If you use the Imgur app on a phone, you can long press the image and select copy url. Paste that in your comment and you're good to go.

  • @cts  Jan 30

    @seemanski - apparently it does! ๐Ÿ˜

  • @seemanski  Jan 30

    @cts, I think that is probably a bad thing that I have discovered this.

  • @pipewrench67  Jan 30

    Can't seem to get the gif going from my phone, also apparently can't edit posts from phone

  • @seemanski  Jan 30

    You have to make sure get the link poibting at the gif i.e. It has to end with .gif

  • @spikedirection  Jan 30

    Testing testing

  • @mattoxic  Feb 18

    And testing...
