I'm pretty sure that your the only one having problems as I posted a couple from my fishing trip just the other day. Everything went as normal putting them in. The faces you used today are showing up for me but the ones you have been using in the past did not. So actually today is the first time I have seen the faces work for you.
Quinton, are the photo posting problems with photos uploaded on our servers, or with code you use to post within the thread? If I recall most of your photos are posted with your code. Can you direct us to an example post, so we can look at the code?
About the smileys, for some reason there is a glitch when an extra space is added before or after a smiley - so if you hit the space bar after you enter a smiley, it most likely won't show up. You can go back and edit your posts and see if that is indeed the case.
The only reason my smileys are working today is because I am copying and pasting them. As for the photos I am using the direct link on my photobucket like always. What is happening is when I insert it using the little tree, it is showing the size of the pic in the little boxes for the size (which it never did before), and then it brings up a new insert box that is empty and not putting the pic in the post. It does not show anything in the post.
If I have to I will use the system for the forum, but I like it better when the pics are a little bigger and you do not have to click on them. Thanks again !
Did you insert photos previously by clicking on the "tree" icon? Or did you insert code directly into the post? When using the popup window, it always shows you the dimension of the photos. We prefer if the photos are very large that they be sized down some, so they don't spill over the edge of the forum. You can size down the first number, then leave the second blank and it will automatically size your picture proportionately. Try 500 or 600 wide and see how that works. Also, don't forget to click on the "insert" button at the bottom of the popup window. That should place the photo where you had placed your cursor to start with.
When placing code from exterior sites into the popup window, make sure it starts with http:// and does not have other code around it.
If you use our system, your photos can actually be much larger and viewers see a much nicer image when they click on the thumbnail. Also, when they click on the first photo, an arrow appears and they can click through to see all of your images without going back to your post.
Let us know if you have any additional questions or problems.
Let me explain it a little further. When I click on a smiley it does not even put it on the line in the post. I can put my direct link from photo bucket directly into the post and it will work, but you have to click on it to see it.
It may be my daughter's computer, but it was working for me before. Mine is still not fixed.
You might try clearing your cache (browsing history) in the browser, maybe something (a script) is broken and hanging things up in your browser. Are you using IE? After clearing your cache close the program then restart.
If you are using IE8, sometimes the "compatibility" button can be accidentally clicked as well. It's right beside the refresh/reload button at the very top. I've done that myself and had problems on BGH, then realized that button had been clicked. You do NOT want to run this site in compatibility mode.
Hunting is not usually a pursuit where instant gratification abounds. It takes a lot of time, practice, resources and patience to be a successful hunter. So when someone decides that an area they hunted only once without taking an animal is worthless and devoid of game, I don't quite understand it. These people usually jump from game management unit to game management unit; trying a new one every year.
Now don't get me wrong, there are people that just enjoy scouting and hunting...
