Last corner

Post  Wooster on Tue Mar 13 2018, 09:00

Finally got onto the last bit of Scotland I haven't been to yesterday, the Ardnamurchan peninsula.
I was working, so only grabbed a couple of pics from the south side of Loch Sunart whille I was waiting for a 4x4 and boat to take me to the site.

From what I saw of it the roads look quite nice for bikes. (Rolling over and following the terrain, as opposed to cutting though it)  left thumb up
p.s. the Ferry at Corran is £3 for bikes.

Still a problem with linking offsite images here...don't know why. Neutral

If you click on the links, the images are cached on your local device, so the embedded images may appear in the post on a refresh...but not always.
Recommendation is to post the direct link (as above), until it's figured out what the problem is. ponder

I have had a good look around the ACP (forum engine-room settings), and can see nor find any reason why pictures encased in the [ img ] [ /img ] are not showing up when posted  don\'t know  Evil or Very Mad

At first I thought it may be an issue with either the picture links being "http" and not "https". But experimental postings with both result in the same 'no pic visible' Igor

I then switched my bias to it perhaps being a "tinypic" issue, somewhat akin to the photobucket debacle. But again, test posts with other image hosts seem also to harvest nonvisible image results too Don\'t Know Igor

The issue can be solved if you host the image via the Host an image button (ringed and highlighted in fig1. below), but that needs to be done from a picture on your machines drive/memory and not your image hosters site;

Alternately, you can get a [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] account (it's free), and you can then link your pictures in the usual way (with the insert an image button - to the right of the one circled & highlighted in fig1. above), without any issues at all.

I - as always - stand to be corrected with an alternate or simpler solution, or even our hosts ([You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]), fix on the issue.

Lovely pics Wooster. We have done some of the roads from Kilchoan after getting the ferry from Mull. It was a cracking road, quiet and twisty. Smile

Damn....that must have been good. Cool
Was the weather fine?

The west coast can be glorious or miserable in equal measures.
(The first five times I went to Oban, it was dreich or full blown raining.)

It was an awesome day. Wall to wall sunshine, even coming back south through Glen Coe which often has cloud on the peaks even on decent days.

Here's one of Ardnamurchan from the ferry.

When it's nice, it's really nice. Cool

If the same two images show in your post, that was me. Neutral

Yeah - it works fine in Edge (without the need to embed) but not in Chrome or Firefox. I guess the forum software hasn't been updated to reflect the recent security changes in Chrome/Firefox which is what's causing the problems viewing the images.

Uploading an image definitely seems to work though. left thumb up
If you can see the image in Fatcat's post above, that was me downloading the image he linked to and then uploading it again.
The original link is still there (above the uploaded one), which is why some people may see the image twice.
