It seems I can’t post photos/screenshots from my iPad due to them having an incorrect extension…

“The uploaded file does not have an allowed extension.”

I posted this in ‘Ask the community’. Please move to an appropriate section of the forum if necessary..

Thanks.

I don’t know where (or how) that is done. Everywhere else you just click on attach then select photo library, choose the photo and use.

Hi Chebby, you do the post and take the picture at the same time. Or you can take a picture on your iPad and then re-take that picture on your iPad and then post.

What does that mean gel?
If I've got a picture on an Android phone, how would I (easily) post it on here?
Keep it simple if you can, I've only just got my first smartphone (and if I don't start using it more, I've wasted 80 quid :LOL:)

@chebby try navigating to camera/formats in your iPads settings and change it from high efficiency to most compatible. Won’t fix your old photos but may sort new ones. Apple use heif compression as standard and I think this site doesn’t like it.

You take the picture live and post it. So you do write your post then take the picture and then post it. You get me? Or you can take the picture whenever your like and then press and hold the home button on an iPad for example and turn it off at the same time and your iPad automatically takes a picture of whatever is on the screen preferably your photo you wish to post on here, then you select that photo and post it and it will then post.

I know this is a bit ‘out there’ but couldn’t someone address this glitch to the admins so they can have it fixed? (Or an opportunity for them to explain why it needs to be broken.)

Anyway, thanks for trying to help. Obviously this is a technical thing that only someone with access to the code can change. I now dimly remember having to host a photo on flickr to get a URL back in the old days.

Thanks for that gel.
I'll bear that in mind :confused_old:

Can a personal video be posted?
Probably not.
(I see the option to share on the phone - not into any of that social media bollox).

Actually......I suppose this place is social media :rolleyes:
