Attachment Limit Reached!

Fellow members!

Once again we have reached the forum attachment quota limit! :(

Do you have any posts with images attached that are no longer necessary? Or can be converted to links??

All my images are now hosted on github, been doing this for some time now. I'll be moving all my attachments (zips and pdfs) as well.

Tips for anyone who'll be doing same, i.e. creating a github account, and creating a repository for their files:
Once you've uploaded your file(s) to github, grab the URL link to one file: e.g.
Code: Select all
https://github.com/username/repository/blob/main/filename

For images (to be displayed inside a post): replace the 'blob' with 'raw' and surround the URL link with 'img' tags, e.g.
Code: Select all
[img]https://github.com/username/repository/raw/main/mypic.png[/img]

For (downloadable) attachments: replace the 'blob' with 'raw' and surround the URL link with 'url' tags, e.g.
Code: Select all
[url]https://github.com/username/repository/raw/main/myfiles.zip[/url]

Or you can choose to host your files elsewhere, in which case the above is not useful!!
