Do topics await approval when they have images in?

Postby garrettendi » Fri Mar 29, 2019 9:06 am

I posted an image, but when I log off the SOS forums the whole topic I posted isn't in the forums. Using a copied link to the topic I can then access it when logged out (and I can see the image) but the post remains hidden from the forum page.

When I'm logged in it all works as expected!

No approval. If it's a big file size then it can take ages to load. You've already got it in your cache, so it appears instantly for you.

Actually there is a problem in some browsers. I couldn't see it in Safari on my iPhone.

Dropbox make it awkward to share pictures publicly. So for best results you need to edit the end of the supplied URL. Where this says:

https://www.dropbox.com/s/c9q111zono66n9j/MWaveShaperFuzzFace001.png?dl=1

...change the dl=1 at the end to raw=1, so you get.

https://www.dropbox.com/s/c9q111zono66n9j/MWaveShaperFuzzFace001.png?raw=1

This avoids a preview screen which some browsers don't like. After doing that, I could see the picture on my mobile.

Note that if the original link supplied by Dropbox says dl=0, it won't display on a public forum. dl=1 should work on most platforms, but raw=1 is better.

Ahhh yes I used dl=1 and it came out fine for me so I figured that would fix it.

I can no longer edit the post but will remember for future use.

Could a mod please make the edit to the post? :thumbup:
