Hi,

 

 

 

when trying to make a new post and include an image, I get the following error:

 

Error: Please upload image to Geekzone or use a third party image service with https support.

 

 

 

The image link I'm using is: https://i.postimg.cc/9Q192SK3/internet-error-1.png

 

Forum I'm trying to post is: https://www.geekzone.co.nz/forums.asp?forumid=49

 

 

 

help please?

 

 

 

Cheers!
Lucas

And have you tried uploading the image to Geekzone as suggested instead of trying to paste the image into the editor, which creates a base64 image?

You have to upload the image using the buttons just below the text box. On your gallery you can copy the BBCODE to insert the image. If you just PASTE again it will be another base64 image on the textbox.

Well... I did that.. many times! And I was getting the error. Now I opened a new window and did it again and it worked! 🤷‍♂️

As I said... If you upload the image and copy the BBCODE then you won't get the error. I am thinking when you press CTRL-C your computer is not actually copying - some software intercepting key handle? - and the buffer still have the original image you might have copied instead of the code. Next time try paste into the address bar to see if the BBCODE appears correctly.
