Not able to see images in my own post
« on: July 27, 2014, 08:50 PM »
I'm new to the forum and only have a few posts. I just listed a couple of items for sale in Classifieds. But when I open my post, it says IMAGE NOT SHOWN - GUESTS CANNOT VIEW ATTACHED IMAGES

Why can't I see the images I've attached to my own post? I am logged in under my username, not as a guest. I believe I attached the images correctly. I frequently post and attach images on other forums, so I think I know what I'm doing.
Thanks for any help or insights.

It seems that some settings might need to be changed.  Can you see them now? Were you logged in before when you tried?

Peter, I was logged in when I checked my posts. I am logged in now and still get the same message for each image I attached. Can you see the images in my classified posts?

I can see your images. Did you get this squared away?

I can't see his images.

Apparently all permissions haven't been set correctly yet. You guys are moderators, your permission level is higher by default.

I'm sure Shane will sort it out.

Alex,

There might be a couple of things going on.  I could see the images after Shane edited the classified listing for the CT.  I could view it until a couple of minutes ago.  Then I logged out.  As a guest I could not see the images.

As a moderator I don't think that we have higher level permissions as far as viewing images.  Mainly we have permissions regarding dealing with modifying posts and removing posts and members.  It looks like Shane resized the images down to 1024 in one direction.  SittingElf, in another thread indicated that he thought the limit was 1000 in one direction.  I am going to download the images from the  classified thread and reduce them to less than 1000 and then post back here if you can see it.  It will take me a couple of minutes but I will do right now.

Here are the images form that other post.  I have included two copies of each image.  One has a max dimension in one direction of 1000 pixels, the second one is max 999 pixels.  Let me know what works.

Thanks, Peter

Yep, I can see these pics in this thread. So you think it depends on size?

Little test, pic = 2592 x 1944  at 1.156 MB

Good morning. I still can't see the images in my post and I am logged into the forum. All the images still show the message that Guests Cannot View Attached Images. Is there something I am missing when I originally attach images?

I doubt it is something you are missing. You did it alright. This forum has had a very recent software update. There are a few kinks to work out. Give it some time.

Perhaps you should post a couple of pics in this thread to see if it works.

@Peter, I can see my picture above though it has a very big size. Maybe the problem is with the Classifieds section, it has different permissions than the rest of the board.

File size has been reduced by the board to 384Kb instead of 1.156MB, but the dimensions are still 2592 x 1944.

Try going to that thread, and if you are using Windows hit F5 and see what happens.  You can also clear your cache to make sure you aren't looking at old data.

Alex, I use Photoshop to resize.  When I resize I use the "save for web and devices" option just like I've been doing for the last 5 years.  The 384KB amount is what the software shows when I saved it.  In my software I saved that to max resolution.  I could have probably resized and reduced the quality to get down to less than 80KB without anyone noticing.  I don't have the ability to see the permissions or rules.

I was talking about the picture of my CS70 I uploaded a few posts above as a test. The size is very big but I can see it without problem.

Sorry for the trouble. I just checked and there was yet another setting to enable viewing attachments. This must be new in the new version of the forum software as it was unchecked for the Classifieds section, which has unique permissions compared to the rest of the forum.

Have a look now. Again, sorry for the issues.

Maybe it will change soon, but I just checked Peter's Test post in Classifieds.

I can see the pics now. Thanks.
However, in my other classified post for the RO 150 FEQ Plus, image one shows up 5 times, before the other images as thumbnails. When I added the files to the post, I then clicked the [Insert attachment 1 in the message]. Now looking at the post in the 'modify' window, all 5 images have [Insert attachment 1 in the message], not 1, 2, 3, 4, 5. So this inserts the same image (#1) for each unique image uploaded.
I removed inserting the image in the message, so only the five individual thumbs show up.

The insert choice from the drop down does not automatically change the number of the attached picture, yet. When click Insert Full Size picture , for example, they will all show number 1. You just need to change them from 1   to  2,  3 etc. or just replace with the # symbol and it will take them in the order  of upload.

See the red part below.  The parenthesis would normally show as brackets. I had to change them to make the example show in the post.

(attachimg=1)

(attachimg=2)

(attachimg=3)

        OR

(attachimg=#)

(attachimg=#)

(attachimg=#)

The duplicate thumbnails at the bottom are a separate issue which require a code change that Shane will also be take care down the road.

The other day I was logged in and saw the same message in your Classifieds post. It's fixed now though.
