I've been trying to link some images to the My Warrior gallery section, have not had any luck. I can upload pictures fine but simply can't link.

The pictures are hosted on my own web space, below is an example.
http://www.sit.wisc.edu/~apmeyer2/IMG_568.JPG

Notice, the picture is the correct format JPG, not large, and meets the 400 max width. I'm not sure what else I can do. Maybe it's a flaw in the website?

Thanks,
Alex

the size must also be below 80kb. check the FAQ section above for more specifics on linking.

Hmm... I looked around but didn't see much. Can you give me the sub heading it's in? Also... maybe someone can clear this up for me, what's the point of limiting size of linked files? These files still reside on there native server? I mean... I'd assume the My Gallery would construct a table and fill in the correct picture links.

I get 'Invalid Link' and that's it.
Try to upload this to your warrior gallery and see what you get.

I've tried every which way, resizing, renaming, modifying the URL, etc etc

I guess the exact error is
Invalid link for the Image

I just tried it in both Safari (Mac) and Internet Explorer, no dice. Lemme know what you come up with.

check my gallery. i copied the file to my web space and linked to it. it didn't work for me initially either. what finally worked was when i ftp'd into the web folder and renamed the file.

I can link it in the thread. It might not like the little ~ line in the file name. Can you change that out?

I figured it out...
When you try to link to an image the server will actually go fetch the image and make sure it is valid.

In the code, I convert the link to lower case in order to check for "http://" however, the fact that you are using a ".edu" make me think to my college days on a UNIX server! UNIX is a Case sensitive OS, therefore the link, once converted to lower case, is invalid.

It should be fixed by the time you read this.
