    The software used here is very graphics unfriendly. It makes no provision for posting images from your phone or pc. The option of posting of pictures by url is not a good one. Other picture storage sites such as photobucket etc. Do not allow you post stored images to a third site such as here.

    XENFORO is a good example of a software with good graphics posting ability. Posting picture option here is only by URL. As far as I see there is no other option. I create Christian memes from scratch being graphic designer. As a part of attempting to minister to folks I incorporate scripture memes into many posts. Just wishing I had a way to post them here.

    Hi Frank,

    As reba said, we recently restricted the ability to post attachments here. We are currently deciding about potentially going back to that.

    In the meantime, feel free to hotlink from Imgur etc.

    So how do you make Imgur work? I downloaded it and now I can't find it to use it, and it changed my browser and all sorts of stuff. :sad

    I got that fixed but still don't have Imgur. So...does anyone have a link to the real download for it?

    Imgur doesn't download. You upload images to it and link to them from here.

    I have imgur on my iPhone and that is a download. On the web you just need an account. I love imgur.

    I'll just link to photobucket from now on. Until I feel froggy again Lol.

    That will work just as well for you. Eventually we may be able to upload again. But I don't mind using imgur because it's fast and easy. After you learn the ropes ;)

    Photobucket will not work and won't allow 3rd party posting.

    Just the link to the graphic pastes and not the graphic itself. No different from Flickr. If I can't post the image itself I don't want to post a link...

    Photobucket will not allow 3rd party posting. You get some weird symbol when you try to paste from photobucket.
