Title: trying to attach photo
Post by: GrumpyRabbit on October 14, 2021, 19:32:26
Hi! I'm trying to attach a photo to my post - at first it told me the photo I took with my phone was too large, so I sized it down even more, and now it says "the attachments upload directory is not writable. Your attachment or avatar cannot be saved"

I'm trying to include a photo of the tarot spread I did (in the Metaphysics section).

Any way I can get that up there to accompany my post?

Try uploading the image to a filesharing site and link to the image there, and change https to http.

I'm not remotely technologically inclined, I don't even know what a filesharing site is. Like, can you send me the link to a good one?

Had the same problem as you when setting my profile avatar, I used https://imgur.com/ . It's pretty simple, you have to sign up (it free), and then drag and drop the picture on there. Then (if I remember correctly) there is a link share button that copies the link to the clipboard so you can go on here and paste it in (right click and paste or ctrl+v), just remember to change https:\\... to http:\\...

Now all you have to do is use the insert image button on here and paste the link in the middle.
The correct link for your image is http://i.imgur.com/svNDTMp.jpeg
