xat.me (images) "imgur"

Question

having an issue with xatspace, when i leave xat or go without long time on my xatspace no image shows until i go to xatspace and resave it or preview it then it shows again i use imgur for all my images and sometimes it doesnt show until i edit xatspace again... I tried to clear my cach and this still happened. I use imgur because it is the most trustable out of all the host and you have control over your images. I also use cubeupload but not sure if that would work.

 

basically evertime I go off and get back on or its been a while since anyone views my xatspace the images stop working (showing) I don't know if anyone have experienced this issue before but it is annoying to have to edit and save or click preview everytime this happends.

 

I checked my css code and everything seems find, images show for a while but sometimes they stop working (showing) for no reason.

Hello,

 

If having problems with your image provider you can try another, I actually recommend you to use http://postimageio.io it works HTTPS and HTTP and have zero compression.

 

You can also look dor others image providers here: http://xat.wiki/Images

 

If you want to use it on your xat profile or xat chat must be used <img src="IMAGE URL" />

 

If you want to use it as backgroud must be used .DIVNAME{background:url(IMAGE URL)}

I feel your pain, imgur hasnt worked on xatspaces for a long time.

 

I use tinypic for my xatspace, mostly because of the shorter URLs.

 

For now, the only real option is to use another image host.

Then, you should put the code: <img scr=”LinkHere”/>

 

For example:

 

<img scr=”http://i.imgur.com/9eOShDG.png”/>

<img src= * ;) 

 

Plus as some people said, imgur has been blocked since months ago now; so you have to choose other hosts like photobucket, tinypic, cubeupload etc.

thank you everyone,

 

was trying to find a new host that doesn't have size limit and doesn't compress images. some like tinypic compresses and resizes images after certain size. this is bad for big files and mostly for outer bgs and big stuff

 

any way imgur can be allowed again... it is trusted afterall not sure why it wouldn't work

 

what is the downtime for http://postimage.io

does it go offline a lot or maintance?

 

looking for something dependable as well

 

they really should allow imgur. I am also a user for cubeupload in fact I own the username Staff on Cubeupload and use it as a backup haven't tried it for xatspace yet (css) so not sure if it works.

 

any way imgur can be allowed or fixed to work

Hello Mysticons,

 

I told you before, see http://xat.wiki/Images

 

There you're going to see the host of images allowed in xat. Click: http://xat.wiki/Images

 

Thank You,

 

Blacky

If I cant use Imgur (works outside of xatspaces)  I usually use Tinypic or Cubeupload. Cubeupload would be perfect if I wasn't affected by a character limit.

 

TInypic is pretty clunky but works fine for smaller images. You can always get around size limits and compression by being clever with CSS too.

Also, according to the Tinypic FAQ;

Quote

Q: What is the limit on image size?

A: Currently we limit based on file size. The images will be resized to a smaller size if they are too large.

 

Not sure what the actual limit is but remember to compress your images properly.

 

For example in Photoshop, use "Save for Web" and use a setting that doesnt affect image quality too much, while keeping filesize down.

Not to mention most people using american internet will love you

I believe that Imgur doesn't work on xat.me any longer; the reason is hotlinking <img src="URL"> read their terms of service here scroll down to (stuff not to do). 

 

You can upload images through Imgur and put them on your profile but at the end of the day, they will get removed after all avoid hotlinking from Imgur; a workaround is to use other hosts: Tinypic, Photobucket, Cubeupload etc...

thanks I have read the policy

 

I still think this should be fixed so imgur can work... don't know why don't allow hotlinking it does not hurt anyone

 

but anyways I will convert all to cubeupload

I am using postimage.io

no problems so far and I don't see any limitations unlike tinypic

 

if I have any issues I will report back

 

tinypic compresses and resizes images after certain size and limits size you can use before it resizes

 

that's why I went with postimage

It is the unique that is always online.

 

I personally don't like others providers because I use postimage since 2012.

Hello,

 

You can use an other images host. For example: Cubeupload.com

 

More information, click here. Or, go to: xat.wiki/images

 

xat allows the use of BBCode-esque formatting to allow you to easily embed popular services on your profile or chat group.

 

Then, you should put the code: <img scr=”LinkHere”/>

 

For example:

 

<img scr=”http://i.imgur.com/9eOShDG.png” />
