That was done on an iPhone.

In Safari on iOS:

  1. Navigate to the Dropbox page.
  2. Tap and hold the image of interest.
  3. Choose "Copy".
  4. Go to the BlatChat thread. Start a new post or reply to the thread.
  5. Click the image icon (not the upload icon) and paste the URL into the text entry box labelled URL* in the dialog box. Adjust the image size. (400 wide is often about right.)Then post.

(I found this difficult on a small screen.)

that is exactly how I have been trying to do it, but it just doesn't seem to work. I had forgotten about the upload icon - that works but is more wasteful of the site's storage (but I tried anyway - see below)

if I copy the image, his is the address I get.

using it in the URL* box just results in a red square with a white cross in it...

This forum automatically turned that into a link when I was trying to show the string so I've split off the https://

Don't know about the rain on Thursday (17th or 24th?) but Monday 21st produced Biblical rain. Unfortunately I had work scheduled to start at 09:00 that day to extend my drive. By 16:00 the workers were in what was essentially a clay line swimming pool.

They gave up & returned Wednesday 23rd - it rained again! They definitely gave up the game & will return Friday 25th when hopefully it is a dry day.

Thank goodness for a bilge pump !
