In progress Posting images issue

Post by Cipher on November 13th 2011, 6:45 pm

Hi,
I've been using my forum for over a year, and this issue has just started. I just signed up for a test forum to see if it was something to do with my settings. Same issue on the new test forum. I also tried posting on a completely different forum. NO ISSUE. I use imagebam.com as my host.
So I can only conclude its something perhaps that has been changed to all the forums.

Ok, so here is the problem.......

I post multiple images on my forum from imagebam.com
I usually like to post comments with my images, and this is the issue.

So say I'm posting 4 images and would like to place a comment after the first 2 images. I would first past the URLs from imagebam into the forum like this:
(on my forum it posts one URL per line so its not as confusing)

Code:
[url=http://www.imagebam.com/image/d0132c114183948][img]http://thumbnails33.imagebam.com/11419/d0132c114183948.jpg[/img][/url][url=http://www.imagebam.com/image/d0132c114183948][img]http://thumbnails33.imagebam.com/11419/d0132c114183948.jpg[/img][/url][url=http://www.imagebam.com/image/d0132c114183948][img]http://thumbnails33.imagebam.com/11419/d0132c114183948.jpg[/img][/url][url=http://www.imagebam.com/image/d0132c114183948][img]http://thumbnails33.imagebam.com/11419/d0132c114183948.jpg[/img][/url]

Now usually I post many more images than this. 100 at a time. So I use the "Switch editor mode" so instead of it showing text links, it lets me see the actual picture thumbnails, otherwise it makes it very difficult locating the images I want to comment on looking at 100text links.

So as I'm looking at the thumbnails, I put a few spaces between the 2 thumbnails I want to comment on. Then press the "Switch editor mode" button again so it switches back to the text links, and enter my comment.

The issue is, now when I put those spaces between the images. its taking out the "url" part of the link on ALL of the images! So it just becomes a thumbnail, but no more link.
in fact, even as I'm typing this thread the links I posted above, when i click on "switch editor mode" its taking the the "URL" in the coding and leaving it as just a thumbnail.... like this-->

Code:
[img]http://thumbnails33.imagebam.com/11419/d0132c114183948.jpg[/img][img]http://thumbnails33.imagebam.com/11419/d0132c114183948.jpg[/img][img]http://thumbnails33.imagebam.com/11419/d0132c114183948.jpg[/img][img]http://thumbnails33.imagebam.com/11419/d0132c114183948.jpg[/img]

As i said, I have been posting images and comments with my images for over a year like this. This has just started happening. its not imagebam, as I can post on other forum hosts and this doesn't happen.



This is very strange, how can I fix this????


Thanks
Jim

Ok to simplify this, I just noticed its basically the "Switch Edit mode" alone that is screwing things up. (not the spaces I'm making to add my comments.)


Simply put, when I post my link like this:

Code:
url=http://www.imagebam.com/image/d0132c114183948][img]http://thumbnails33.imagebam.com/11419/d0132c114183948.jpg[/img][/url]


then as soon as I press "switch edit mode" it changes the link to this:

Code:
[img]http://thumbnails33.imagebam.com/11419/d0132c114183948.jpg[/img]


Have you made any changes to your forums? It has never done this before. Or is there something on my forum that needs to be adjusted? If not, Please fix.
I will also add, its not imagebam, as I have tried other image hosting sites and it still does it.

yeah something seems to be messed up,
I dont recall this ever happening before,


I am going to have to pass this a long and see if it's just a temp bug or if we need to request a tech to look in to it further.

Info added

Ok it has been passed along,
It is even doing the same thing here on this forum with servimg as well

well for now all i can suggest is to not click the edit mode,
Or if you do , dont switch it back for the links to change.

Other then that we just have to wait for the techs to fix everything,

Any update on this???
Can't they just undo whatever changes they made that caused this to happen?

I'm a photographer, and posting and sharing images with my friends is the main purpose for my forum. So for me this is a pretty important part of my forum.
