Hey I'm having problems attaching files to either new replies or starting new threads with pictures... doesn't matter if on phone or laptop.. this only happens with Google Chrome browser? I noticed it started to happen when I started chest rig thread... its either I can only attach 1 picture at a time or not at all (error 503 page)

How big are the file sizes on the pictures your using/trying to use? The attachment system has individual and post maximum, file size limits, in addition to file type limits.

Quote
Allowed file types: gif, jpg, pdf, png, txt, zip, swf, flv, doc, xls
Restrictions: 6 per post, maximum total size 30000KB, maximum individual size 5000KB

So what that means is; ~5MB per indivual image and ~30MB post maximum total.

My test thread worked fine using the same images I attached here, I don't have any larger test images handy at right this second, but I will test it further when I get home from running errands.

For now, check your images file sizes, make sure they are under the individual and post maximum limits.

Where is the image stored? On your phone itself or on some external source like Google Drive? That may have something to do with the difficulties. Otherwise, I'd have to say it's something about using the forum in Chrome on your phone. I don't think I've ever tried to attach an image to post through my phone. Will try it in a bit though for testing purposes.

I don't know if this will help but I found an imgur.com account method of posting to be very helpful and easier here and in a couple other places.  Might try that.

If you need a second magazine its time to call in air support.

Looking at the image url, I can see the picture in a new tab just fine. You may want to look at your Google drive privacy settings.

Testing with your URL;


What I did, right click image > open image in new tab > copy/paste that url.

Test 2 with unaltered url;


It would appear that for whatever reason, linking with the standard Google drive url doesnt work, you need the direct link instead.

Code: [Select]
Drive Link;
https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B1rZOn8I6CS_bXdoaWlQQ0hjZEU/view

Direct Link;
https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/v7jmtd5LcGx162On_uVc077BLFGEIy5kNArbzqe_j8Llj9mYSN_0mLZyhgvVJ_fl-nchIbvwe_U9Os4=w1332-h836-rw


The first one goes to the Google Drive image viewer, the second is a direct link to the image outside the Google drive viewer. You need to use the direct image link.

As far as the imgur, I have a fair number of pics of guns I had before I had to sell them for medical reasons.  Along with some stuff that could be considered Not PC, Strongly Insensitive,  Very Micro Aggressive and some even porno.

No issue so far.

I also have and use an imgur account. Very quick and convenient. All that said, Google drive does and will work, you just need to use the direct link to the image, instead of the default drive viewer link.

I'm on Chrome and I use Photo Bucket for my pictures. I've never had an issue starting a new thread with multiple pictures attached.
Don't talk about what you have done (or what you
are going to do). Do it and let it speak for itself.

Right. Camo was trying to link to pics on his Google Drive. Which is fine, he was just using the wrong link to do it so it wasn't showing up properly.
