Having trouble using external resources

Post by Dylan Dog »

I know that there was already a couple posts asking about this, but they are pretty outdated now. No matter what, I can't seem to be able to upload images to use in a case -- I've tried Dropbox (but apparently you cannot use Public Folders at all anymore), Google Drive (no kind of link seems to work properly), and Imgur (same issue as Drive).
There was a knight
Black and white prisoner
Without a dream nor a mystery
Without faith nor heresy
Without the wings of a steed
Without the waves of a sailer

There was a knight red
Who stood on the humps of storms
Over the ditch of city evenings
Beside a rough sky of railings
Into the rough sea
Of a brazier of immensity

Imgur should work. Just right click the image, click Open Image in New Tab, and you should have a working link from that.

...Now I feel dumb. So it was the .png at the end, basically. Thank you plenty!

Welp, now I'm kind of having another problem. Ack. I have no idea where to host music and sounds now, since imgur was the only website I can use and well, only accepts images.

Try this thread:

https://aaonline.fr/forum/viewtopic.php?f=50&t=11015

It may seem outdated, but it should still generally work, there just might be a few buttons here or there with slightly different names.

Personally, I use Discord for music and sounds.

Just right click the audio's blue title, inspect element, and take the link. In this case it'd be https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/ ... u_Open.mp3 (this site automatically abbreviates the link but it'd be the full link). Yes, this method does work because I use it. Hope that helps.

Oooo, thank you! I believed, from the other threads here, that Discord was disallowed alongside sites like Wikia, but since it's being used I assume it is not part of those. This makes it all WAY WAY easier...

I wouldn't know if it is since I'm pretty new (and haven't seen all the rules on what hosting sites are disallowed), but if it is, hopefully someone could come and tell us.

Discord isn't "disallowed", but I personally wouldn't trust it for hotlinking; it's not designed for anything like that.

I'd recommend what TimeAxis posted earlier.
