There are a bunch of changes we are making behind the scenes that should make image hosting on here better for you guys.... Hopefully the "photo appearing sideways" issue has been resolved as well. You can also post up to 10 photos per post (up from 4).
So will this mean in future we don't have to use an external service provider simply to add an image to our sig?
That's not one of the changes at the moment, but will investigate if it's one for the pipeline

Uploading directly to the forum will make sure that people viewing the posts in 2, 3, 4 years time will still see the associated photos and not a broken link :thumbsup:
Will this be easy to use, will there be an idiots guide too..I will need one :thumbsup:

The need to use PB was one of the reasons I avoided trying to post photos (on here of all places)!

I was so pleased when the drag and drop/Add file option came along - PB seems to be the answer to a question that nobody asked! Total POS IMHO. :lol:

Now signed up to Blocked, much faster. How do you copy photos across to the forum though??
Once you upload the image, it'll load it up in the page after that click on

About ->
Embed codes ->
Bbcode - copy content from that and paste here in forum, no need to use the IMG button to do it as it'll have the required code already.

That's it. Or go to your profile on page and open the image and then go through the same steps.

You can also select multiple from your profile page and get embed codes for all in one go.
Is this site now working to be able to copy photos on here ?

You could already do that on here. What we have done is improve the quality and resolve the "sideways posting" issue.

OK, thanks.
I still can't work out how to get the photos to copy over, what Buckz said, doesn't work for me.

OK, so if I copy the link from Blocked to here, it shows Blocked on my post page, but it shows blocked once posted. This is what I mean..see below.
