Just want to test various formats of hyperlinks, that seem to work on the old reflector but not on Discourse anymore:
Those links don’t work anymore:
but this does:
Maybe the hash character ‘#’ is not being recognized correctly.
The problem seems to be the mediaviewer functionality provided by wikipedia. If the static url of the picture is used (via the “view original image” function in wikipedia) the picture will be embedded correctly:
None of these standard BBCode representations appear to work to embed a thumbnail of the image into the post [quote]However, this is subject to size limits which is currently 3072kb[/quote] and the original image size is ~470kB.
[li]This one works: where the image has not been resized.[/li]
[li]This one doesn’t work: where the image has again not been resized, BUT where extra parameters (alt, title) have been included.[/li]
[li] [color=#ff0000]This one doesn’t: [/color] - attempting here to resize the image.[/li]
[li]This one doesn’t: , where the width and height parameters have values equal to the width and height of the original image.[/li]
[li] with no resizing[/li]
[li] … trying to resize[/li]
Resizing doesn’t appear to work correctly, or to be accepted - neither are standard [img] parameters like alt or title accepted. Which appears to suggest that parameterized tags (i.e. those which include parameters like ’ height=“50” ') are not being accepted by the system. Color (text-colour) also [color=“red”]doesn’t[/color] work.
So, opportunities to use many standard BBCode tags/parameters appear to have been suppressed in this system.
Don’t hurry. I didn’t want to stress you. I just wanted to accept Andy’s @MM0FMF invitation to use the “Practice Area” for getting familiar with this new forum.
Just an Idea: Maybe a dedicated category for support or help request would be helpful. In this way other users could reply to the request, e.g. like Rob @DM1CM did. Maybe this relieves the MT a little bit. Or is the “Meta” category the correct place for such posts?
Hi Stephan, you should see a little dustbin icon underneath your post (or possibly an elipsis ‘…’ in which case click that and then the dustbin). Clicking this will set your post for deletion and hide the post. I believe it will then be properly deleted after 24 hours by the system.
Aaahh, what a shame I wasn’t a radio ham when I climbed the Jubiläumsgrat (leading to the Zugspitze) solo a few years back - just look at all those unactivated peaks along the route! …but as to embedding of anything to do with the SMP is concerned, recent experience has shown me that the SOTA MT are quite content to keep it, and it’s author, at a respectable distance. And long may it so remain…
