    Default Can't post image files in forum

    I've been noticing this for a while, now. When I try to upload a local PNG file to a post, nothing happens. When I try to point to a Dropbox URL to post an image file, it complains of unacceptable file type (even though PNG is listed as acceptable) or that the file is too large (this latest one is 5 KB).

    Anyone else having this trouble? Ideas?

    Yep, looks like image management is broken.

    Here is the error I get on upload:

    Code:
    Only variables can be passed by reference on line 941 in /xxxx/xxxx/xxxx/xxxx/xxxx/class_upload.php
    #0 /xxxx/xxxx/xxxx/xxxx/xxxx/class_upload.php(872): vB_Upload_Attachment->save_upload()
    #1 /xxxx/xxxx/xxxx/xxxx/xxxx/xxxx/attach.php(994): vB_Upload_Attachment->process_upload(Array, false, 0)
    #2 /xxxx/xxxx/xxxx/xxxx/xxxx/xxxx/attach/post.php(614): vB_Attachment_Store->process_upload(Object(vB_Upload_Attachment), Array, 0)

    The server company changed their php version and it broke some of the code in the bulletin board... I have to do some code updates to fix it... but I was not excited about folling around with the core engine of the bulletin board at this time, because I have lots of things happening that are stealing all my time lately.

    Hello,

    Is "php" an acronym for "pretty horrible programming"?

    PS: I would be more than happy to post images on my site...if you like...or use any of the free image hosting sites out there in "Inner-net" land.

    You can upload the picture somewhere else and load it from that URL.

    Tried it with dropbox; didn't work. What's the secret?

    Dave,

    I know you can upload anything to Dropbox...but I am not sure if you can view images as if they were located in the actual posting?!

    This image was uploaded to Google Drive...

    Just need to post the picture somewhere online. Facebook, Twitter, another forum...etc, and link to it.

    If you want post the picture on our Facebook page.

    This is from our Facebook page.

    I imagine I can create a link to a dropbox pic file as you did with Google Drive. But what I'm trying to do is insert a picture in a post, here.

    I've tried both Dropbox and Google Drive for this and can get neither to work. So maybe it's a PHP thing on the server, like Bob was suggesting.
