Hallo!

How can I place a graph xxx.jpg into a new thread? It´s stored now on dropbox. Or is another cloude store better suitable? The graph should be placed within the text of the thread. 

With the former E@H layout this was much easier. 

Many thanks for your help in forehand and

kind reagards

If the .jpg is accessible for

If the .jpg is accessible for anyone then you should be able to use the [ img]-tag. Check the BB-Code help below the message editor.

Do a quote on my post and you will see how I did it.

This appears to be a combined

This appears to be a combined Einstein and Dropbox question.

The Einstein end is simple enough, and the same used by many other forum sites.  You just need a URL which points to your image, and then to enclose that URL with img tag delimiters, as already mentioned here.

The Dropbox piece is, how to obtain such a URL.  While I'm not a Dropbox person, a minute of searching took me to this DropBox help page.

Have you tried that method?  Please try making an image accessible by that method and post the URL here (with and without the img tag).  Perhaps we can help you then.

Hallo!

Many thanks for your help indeed.

Holmis: Your answer was an important hint, but it´s only part of the whole.

Archae86: Yes , I know about this help. The problem for me is, that I get at best a replacement icon for the graph in my running text. If I click on this, dropbox opens showing the awaited graph in a separate window. That´s no real insertion into the text. I believe, I have to tell dropbox an url, which becomes allowed for downloading the graph. Or something else. So I placed for this a special thread in "Technical News".

But propably dropbox is not the best suitable cloudestore for this purpose.

Many thanks in forehand for your help,

kind regards and happy crunching

Martin

Why not comply with this request?  What objection do you have?

Hallo Archae86!Many thanks

Hallo Archae86!

Many thanks for answering.

1) [img] [/img] gives a placeholder for the image, but clicking on this doesn´t give a response.

2) url itself, you can click on, opens a separate dropbox-window showing the graph

https://www.dropbox.com/s/1wk2gue0rdv3sqm/FGRPB1G_1.18%20%20CPUvLz.jpg?dl=0

3) [url=xxx)text[/url]

url of graph

 Be careful: clicking on the links will open a dropbox-window with the graph intended, but there is no other way back to the former window, than new starting the Tab.

4)  || Why not comply with this request?  What objection do you have?  ||

I suppose, this will require special knowlege about JOMLA, the language this homepage is writen by, and of the E@H-server itself and about dropbox. So I believe this needs the special knowlege of Christian Beer, the author of this homepage. But let´s see.

I do wait urgently on your suggestions and

remain with kind regards 

Martin

Another minute with Google

Another minute with Google search regarding posting Dropbox images using IMG tags gave multiple pages discussing this Dropbox problem (it is not an Einstein problem).

one of those pages proposed a workaround, involving substituting the character string www.dropbox.com for the string dl.dropboxusercontent.com in the URL provided by dropbox for any given image.

I've taken the additional measure of stripping the "?dl=0" ending from your provided url, made the proposed substitution, and wrapped the URL in IMG tags, with this result:

At least in preview mode on my home system, this minor transformation of your provided URL displays your graphs on my screen.

 I make no warrant that this will always work, nor that it will continue to work.  But that is a Dropbox question, not an Einstein question.  If you have further trouble I suggest you direct your inquiries in the Dropbox direction.
