    I'm not an expert on adding pictures from a hosting service, but the new linking rules are not stopping you. Flickr links do work, though. I just wanted to let you know it was getting looked at.

    I followed the flickr thread and figured it out. It was user error. I'm an idiot.

    Edit: nope! Here is the message.

    Are you attempting to upload to the forum? If so then it will fail as that permission is disabled for members.

    You need to use the Tapatalk hosting option.

    I'm doing it like I've always done it, through Tapatalk hosting.

    edit:
    I guess with all of tapatalks recent upgrades it changed my settings. Thanks Dr Jekell

    Howdy....Just wondering how much of a :censored: it would be to add on the add file option, then you could just post directly to the site without using a host...
    Example of 2 forums I mod at...

    I got you covered Jon.

    We (Jon & all of the forum staff) have discussed this exact issue about a year or so ago in a very lengthy thread.

    At the time it was decided not to allow members to upload files to the EDCForum's server, this was done for a number of reason relating to storage and bandwidth costs, Legal complications, and other concerns.

    Until we are confident that those issues can be resolved, we will not be allowing forum members to store files on the forums server.
