Can't add photos from photobucket
Posted by Adaster on Thursday, August 2, 2012 10:51 AM

I've read the forums and still can't get photos to post from my photbucket account. I get invalid URL: The hostname could not be parsed.

Hi Adaster,

Does the URL have a tilde (~) in it? If it does, right now we're waiting on a patch from Telligent to fix the problem.

If not, could you send me a copy of the URL so we can look at it?

Thanks,

TK

Adaster,

Are you including the whole address when you enter the link into the dialog box and are you using the rich formatting option?

Tim,

I right clicked on my photo on your post and copied the properties. It worked. If I go to photobuck and click on the copy img link it doesn't

Instead of using Photobucket's copy image, try copying image's URL and pasting it into the the "insert image" dialog box. Make sure that it includes the http:// portion of the address.

If I may offer a clarification of the steps to follow in Photobucket...

If you're in an album in Photobucket, just hover your cursor over the image with your mouse.  A popup will open with info for sharing the image in other webpages.  I copy the image tag (starts with "img") and paste that URL into my posts on other websites.

If you click on the image in an album in photobucket, you'll be navigated to the specific page for that image, the "detail" page, if you like, and on the right-hand side of the page, you'll see a box labelled Links.  Again, I use the image code URL, which allows me to embed the image in a post, just personal preference.

Hope that helps!

Brad
