One more time I'd ask people to use image uploaders that provide direct linking and do not require to click through a javascript-ridden website.

Clickable image thumbnails should always click through to the full image, like this:

I can even see the link to the full image in the page's source - it's https://images2.imgbox.com/0f/76/YjgK93 … nload=true - but I cannot view it directly. That's just evil.


Must be because you use umatrix or noscript maybe? There is a lot of javascript on that page though, but as i dont use umatrix or noscript it seems to display fine?

There is a little cloud button with a down symbol on it for downloading which has this link https://images2.imgbox.com/0f/76/YjgK93 … nload=true

sorry for the mishap.
have edited my post, now linking to the image uploaded to scrot.cloud.

May I recommend that next month's OP suggests scrot.cloud or postimg.org like we had done with scrot.moe before, of course with updated instructions?

We recommend https://scrot.moe (free registration required) for image uploads. After uploading your image, click "Embed codes" and copy/paste the "Thumbnail image (linked) BBCode" at the bottom of the page, done.

To open the posted scrot.moe thumbnail fullscreen in Firefox, scroll down to the Download icon on the right (next to Like and Share), right-click it and choose "Open Link in New Tab" to open the screenshot in a new browser tab, then switch to that tab.

https://forums.bunsenlabs.org/viewtopic.php?id=6134

I'd suggest postimg.cc. It provides a nice thumbnail, allows hot-linking the full-sized image, as I did with my last scrot, and you can post without creating an account...

In Firefox right-click "View Image".
That works with the distorted image I got with hhh's postimg.org too.

For that reason (distortion) I'm suggesting imgur.com as an alternative - it lets you link directly to the full image, though the above services also have that available, if posters cared to use the direct url.

Re: January 2020 Screenshots Thread

@many:
the point is that clicking on a thumb here should lead you to the full-sized image there, and not another website. It's called "hotlinking allowed", yes. Disallowing that on an image sharing website is evil IMO.
Others not only allow it but provide ready-made bbcode snippets to paste into your post. Which sites, please? postimg.org and scrot.moe seem to be both down (for good?).
postimage.org is up though. as is postimg.cc, which redirects to postimages.org and seems to be using more trackers than postimage.org. Strange and messy.

But both provide "Hotlinks for forums". That's what we need.

scrot.cloud allows hotlinking, but provides the wrong bbcode under "Thumbnail image (linked)": it leads to the page containing the image, not the full image itself.
But IMO that's still a little better than what the bemoaned imgbox does because it works without javascript.

The provided bbcode could be fixed like this:

[url=https://scrot.cloud/image/5rmr][img]https://scrot.cloud/images/2020/01/20/2020-01-19--1579503461_0x2200003x1080_scrot.th.png[/img][/url]
# to
[url=https://scrot.cloud/images/2020/01/20/2020-01-19--1579503461_0x2200003x1080_scrot.png][img]https://scrot.cloud/images/2020/01/20/2020-01-19--1579503461_0x2200003x1080_scrot.th.png[/img][/url]

Example:
2020-01-19--1579503461_0x2200003x1080_scrot.th.png
But I think it's better to just use a service that does it right, no?

What about imgbb, it seems to have the required hotlinking? The thumbnail is not the greatest though.

xfce4-screenshooter does as well, but AFAICS only as anonymous user.

If you want auto-uploading with scrot, try these YAD dialog scripts:

ImgBB Screenshooter script for BL

Imgur screenshooter script for BL

BBCode is displayed for copy/paste, and they can be done as anon user, or to an account (with an option to register for first-time user).

Re: January 2020 Screenshots Thread

Are the rules still just thumbnail with constraints on the forum pointing to a destination or is the destination now being moderated?  Chevereto based sites are good for reviewing with phones, imgur is good on the desktop.  There really isn't one that does both.  If the new rules are thumbnail points to whatever.png/.jpg then I'll start doing that.

Do not embed images larger than 250x250px into posts, use thumbnails linking to a hosted image instead.

That said, larger images but with a small file size are generally OK. The main concern is for those users with poor internet connection or restricted data allowance.

Thanks for the clarification.  Seems like ever since scrot.moe went away everyone has been questioning the format.

No, the rule has been that you should post a thumbnail or else a moderator will edit or remove the image because it's too large (but still leave the link). Where it links to has always been up to the user. We've only made recommendations to hosting services before, and that was almost exclusively to scrot.moe in the OP of each thread since @mrneilypops started that service. And instructions for hot-linking to the full image have never been prominently displayed in the OP.

This will be the first time we recommend something other than scrot.moe since way, way back, if we decide to recommend a host or two.
