NEVER insert images directly from source - sanjay - 11-22-2016

Please NEVER EVER insert images directly from source site.

I am seeing many users here directly insert images from facebook (and some other websites). In my opinion it is not good way and is not recommended, why?

1. Facebook sometime change the storage location and hence url of image is changed. So in this case your images do not show on WildFact after some times.

2. Many smaller websites often get shut down & their domains sold, meaning the source you are linking the image from would stop existing.

3. Users often delete the images or close their account/blog and hence you will see broken link of images on WildFact.

4. Facebook & other image hosts, sometime block other websites like WildFact to let them show the images by inserting link of images directly from their website.

.

If you want that your images is shown here forever, try to download it from source & reupload here (http://wildfact.com/forum/topic-how-to-upload-image)... or upload it to some image hosting service like; postimg.cc

I am seeing that many images from lots of posts start disappearing. It certainly take little effort but worth of it.
For example:

This good post has lost all its images...

what's a good website now adays for subscriptions, are imageshack and photobucket still around? which one do you recommend and i agree with facebook content, they will eventually turn into broken links and blank images will start appearing.

Thank you for the support Rofl
I would recommend imgur, it is best and WildFact uses it when you upload images using the black i icon. http://imgur.com/


Read these blogs, they have suggested some good option

Agreed. 

One thing to note, though. 

Sometimes, this feature of the "broken image" also appears from images uploaded from my own computer, no idea why.

It is becasue sometime your ISP unable to open the image hosting website, in this case Imgur.  To check and confirm, open imgur website separately in a new browser tab. If it also do not open then this mean your ISP currently unable to show website.
Though this is temporary problem and happens to almost every ISP.

I'm having trouble uploading images at the moment, the "I" button just keeps buffering but not posting...


RE: Do not insert images from wbesite like facebook - sanjay - 03-01-2017

Pckts, currently the image hosting server imgur has some problem.
You can try following
1. Visit imgur.com and upload the images there, get the direct image link and use image insert feature here. OR
2. Visit http://postimage.io/ upload images there, get the direct link and use image insert feature here.

RE: Do not insert images from wbesite like facebook - sanjay - 03-01-2017

Thanks for reporting, Will solve it as soon as possible
Please keep updating about the situation


RE: Do not insert images from wbesite like facebook - Ngala - 03-01-2017

Now i have experienced PostImage that you have suggested, and seems to be comfortable. Thank you Sanjay for the availability and your work.
