    If you can’t upload screenshots on the level’s comment page because it has no URL link, you can upload to here first to get (and copy) the URL link, and then you can paste the URL link to the comments. ;)

    @Ray Aznable Thanks for creating a video to show people how to use the sandbox:

    @nGord Thanks for suggesting me to create this thread. :)

    Just one rule: Things that are not related to images are not allowed to post here.

    @EL797 - credit goes to you! Very clever of you to notice that attachments to forum messages result in having their own dedicated URLs. :sneaky:

    In other words, if a picture is attached here and subsequently clicked on, then the URL to that picture can be used with the Image button to attach it now to a Level comment. No more need for external accounts (like Imgur). :D

    URL link feature in this forum
    doesnt support google drive link,
    still need to use aplication like
    Imgur to get BB code...


    done edit my picture above.

    and then
    about google drive link
    i see ur guide
    im required to edit the link format
    isnt it

    ...
    @Frenzies
    i see in ur profile description
    u have 18 levels
    but actually there are only
    12 levels shown in ur media page.

    that mean u have 6 hidden levels
    or ur count number got error
    same as mine...

    caused by in the past
    maybe u did upload then delete
    many times.

    it works if the link modified abit
    as mentioned by Fish @Frenzies

    @nGord
    please dont delete these flower pictures.
    i use them for my discussion in PM.
    i have cropped the pictures so they
    dont have any text related to outside
    social media.

    The point of this thread is to use it as an alternative to Imgur (and Google Drive that I don't think works in any case).

    You actually can embed Google Drive images; you need to get the direct link to the image itself. There's probably a way to get it yourself, but one way is to use a site like https://sites.google.com/site/gdocs2direct/.

    Figured it out; you can get the ID from the link and use the format https://drive.google.com/uc?id=YOUR-ID. Essentially, replace `/file/d` with `uc?id=` and remove the parts after the ID.


    (You may need to add export=view to the query string if you're embedding it on one of your websites or something, but this seems to work fine on the forum)

    There is an "Upload a File" button next to "Post Reply" which you can use to upload an image. I'm not sure what you mean about generating BB code; if you want to embed it on a forum post, you can simply upload it there directly and press "Full Image".

    If you want to use it on a comment in the Levels subforum, you can upload it here then get the link and embed it just like you tried to embed your Google Drive link.

    Yes, but if you want to embed an image, you can simply press the image icon next to the smiley face in the editor and enter the URL. If you really want to use BBCode manually, I think the format is:

    Code:
    [IMG]https://drive.google.com/uc?id=10tapf39ig3jD-tBVJ1tdHPEYIsQ-Wc56[/IMG]
    [​IMG]

    By the way, please hide big images in spoilers or simply don't embed the full image (as you did with your latest comment) so it doesn't take up so much viewing space.

    Yes, that's the point of this thread; you can upload an image here, then get the link and embed it in level comments. ;)

    You did not hide the screenshot of the LinkPicture app in this thread; will you edit it to put it in a spoiler or shall I?

    Generally, you would not use Google Drive; the whole point of this thread is to avoid using external image hosts such as Google Drive.

    If you really do want to use Google Drive, just get the regular link and follow my instructions above. But again, you generally would not want to do this. If you continue to have problems with it and need further help, please let me know why exactly you want to use it over this thread.

    I have deleted many uploads, but as far as I can tell, you just do not have permission to view the levels. ;)

    Although there is one interesting case where I deleted the album but the media itself isn't marked as deleted as well, but other levels are marked as both. I don't remember if I just manually deleted the other levels separately as well as the album.
