On another forum I had trouble posting links to an image on Village Photos. I could post a link to the same image on my own website and it worked fine but when I tried to link to Village Photos, all I got was a box with the word "image" in it.
Trying to follow the URL gave the following message:
>> An Error Occurred >> Your session has expired.
So I will try again here. Any advice will be much appreciated.
It's because that site only allows you to link to the pictures for a certain time, Pesala. It's like if you do a search on a selling site (like Dabs) for an item, find the item, then post that link. After a time the link doesn't work because the session has timed out. It saves on their bandwidth.
Pesala, Village Photos will only allow the link to work for a certain amount of time, it's usually minutes rather than hours with these sort of things. After that time a visitor will get a session timeout message. The best you can do is upload the images to your own webspace and link to that. Then, if your forum allows it, you can show those pictures using the [img][/img] tags.
Bhikkhu, I uploaded the image to Village Photos, a free hosting facility. I was given a URL to access this image. It has to be publicly accessible. When posting my enquiry to the forum the image is included like this: [img]....then the URL....then....[/img] Hope I've made this clear enough.
