I've always been able to post pics before, but now when I try I get a message that says I'm over my global limit. What's up with that? Anybody else getting this message? All I've been able to do is post links.
Are you posting links using IPB code or as a File attachment. File attachments take up space on the boards server and hence you are limit to how big a file and be attached. Linking to a file already posted on another server using UBB code does not take space and therefore is unlimited what you can do.
*note linking to numerious and large files does however slow the loading of pages especial for those on dial-up so such practice is not to be encouraged.
IPB Code help
You can link to photos posted on another server rather than use the attachment feature. There are a few free photo hosting sites that still allow linking to outside sites though they are getting fewer and fewer. I use "Photobucket". Instructions on how to actual use a photo hosting site and IPB code to link to it can be found in the FAQ Forum titled Pictures
