Cannot figure how to include images



  • Hi,

    I was going to post some info on my Duet equipped printers but cannot figure out how to post pictures.

    How is it done?

    Thanks.

    I think the simplest way at present is to host your images on a public site (I use Dropbox). When composing a post to this forum, press the Image button, then paste the URL of your image between the tags.

    Thanks.

    I thought I tried that but I will try again.

  • I'd recommend imgur for an image host.

    Well I've tried everything I can think of to create a link the displays.

    If I put the link between URL tags it will display when click BUT I cannot get the IMG tag to work - just displays as a broken link.

    Now that DropBox doesn't have a Public folder is there something else I need to do (besides create a link in DropBox)?

    Thanks.

    When pasting a link from Dropbox, change ?dl=0 at the end of the link to ?raw=1.

    Thanks much - that did it.
