Having problems with the link feature - once I add the hyperlink it will not allow the OK feature to work

 

Doing a test link via HyperLink here To the Reporting forums.

Bart South FL

 

This link seems to work.

 

Are you still having the same problems???

The link to the reporting forums worked; the one to Bart South Fl didn't.  The first one shows up as a link (blue, underlined letters) but the other is plain text, and doesn't work as a link.

The member name Bart South... was a link when I first copied it, but I unlinked this as the link of a member name is not what I wanted to test here.

FEC

 

What size of photos are you posting??? All you need to have resolution in this forum is maybe 200 kb or less.  If you are posting 2 mb photos, then you will run out of space with one photo.  There is no reason to post LARGE attachments.

 

When you run out of space, you will have to use remote posting as described in the FAQ's second post.

I can't seem to post links to my photos. When I put the url in the photo address box It won't let me load it. It keeps me from even canceling. I have to close and go to my home page to get out of the site all together.

This is the same problem I was having and I still cannot post. When you click on the icon of link ever since it has been updated once you enter a URL it will not let you hit OK.

I was having the same problem as Birdgurl and Bart just after I upgraded to IE 11.  See my post here on November 13.  I reverted back to IE 10 and I can now post again.  What browser are you using?  Try different browsers if you have them installed.

I'm unsure what the issue is here, and it seems that the members have experience and advice that I do not have.

 

Please, members continue to help on these issues, I do not think these are Whatbird issues, as it seems to be browser issues, but if I can help, I'm here.

Ihoeniger, what internet browser are you using?  Is it the standard Microsoft browser, Internet Explorer?  If so click "Help" on the top toolbar and then click on "About Internet Explorer".  Tell us the version you are using.  Is it 10 or 11?  As I said above, I believe there is a conflict between IE 11 and the Whatbird site with regard to posting images and url's in messages.  You may need to uninstall IE 11 and revert back to IE 10 or you could use another browser, such as Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome.  If you have one of these browsers installed, try that now.  It should work for posting images, as it did for Birdgurl.  If you don't have one of those browsers, you may want to install one of them on your computer and use it for access to the Whatbird site.

I went to Google chrome and it worked fine. I have the older IE. I never upgraded to 11, but I looks like it has something to do with IE.

Having the same problem as others above trying to post a photo from imgur with the link feature. And to make matters worse it freezes you there and the only way to get out is to close out of Whatbird. Also tried the old way using the picture feature and that had the same problem.

Test Post with a link from imgur and it seems to be working properly.  Make sure that you use the link that says

BBCode (message boards & forums)

You also DO NOT need to hit the image button here in the Whatbird forum.  The line with your picture in in should start and end with an IMG tag.

jhauser42-how nice that it works for you! It does NOT work for me. I just tried again to make sure. Same result. It does NOT work. And yes I used the correct BBC code on imgur. And yes as I said in my previous post when the link feature did NOT work I tried the image feature. You know just in case things had changed.
