Please make direct image links previewable again

This sucks. Please fix direct image links Muriel! They need to be previewable. I hate this!

That is not the direct link to the image (.jpg)

See, posting the direct link does not preview.

We had them back for one brief shining moment last week sometime, wasn't it? (time blurs when you are old) and then with very few exceptions it's back to shit. WHY?

by Anonymousreply 7Last Tuesday at 5:41 AM

You get the link after uploading the image to imgbb, r6.

by Anonymousreply 8Last Tuesday at 7:56 AM

The image previews only seem to work when I am browsing on my phone instead of my laptop.

thread watcher still doesn't work either

Damn I so enjoyed porn bombing the frauen.

Also, look at the toolbar on your browser. I have Firefox. There's a little icon next to the padlock. Click on it. That has a list of all the sites that are now tracking you (due to you having to click on links instead of see them as you scroll). This is intentional. You can X out the sites so they can't track you any more, but you'll have to keep doing it.

IMO, the sites (Twitter, Daily Mail) that you can see previews have a deal with DL for that. Daily Mail links used to be F'd up, not anymore. Guess why. Also, suddenly, seems like you can link to CNN as well.

This is the most important issue. Yeah it sucks that image previews aren’t working but there’s literally no point to this website without the thread watcher.

But can you guys see my beagle @ R12?

That part doesn’t bother me - I don’t need to gather here with a bunch of strangers to view porn. But I miss having images in threads like Tasteful Friends.

by Anonymousreply 33Last Thursday at 8:05 AM

Muriel and her teams at You Know What, International are doing all they can.

It's too bad that words with a click aren't enough to satisfy.

And Thread Watcher at least is watching threads. Maybe not yours, but does that really matter?

I am a docile, popular human being on this planet Earth. Also, a fellow administrative assistant in this cruel world. Yet you waltz in here, decree that my lost and suffering [italic]brethren[/italic] should use their hard earned energy to search for a generically titled thread that then offers nothing.. and suddenly I’M on notice?

My Senator will hear of this.

My thread watcher is working fine. I'm on Firefox. My advice is to not close down a window too soon after clicking the eye icon. It needs time to "sink in" that you want to watch that thread.

I have more problems un-watching a thread. Same solution, don't close the window down until it has time to sink in that you don't want to watch the thread any more.

by Anonymousreply 38Last Thursday at 8:22 AM

Sink in? what is this site, some sort of sofa?

by Anonymousreply 39Last Thursday at 8:23 AM

It takes a while for preferences and such to save. If you ever go out to un-ignore someone, it can take 2-3 minutes before it finally goes through, and your browser is locked up while you're waiting. I suspect the thread watcher is the same, sometimes you can watch a thread and then if you close your DL tab "too soon" it hasn't saved that preference.

by Anonymousreply 40Last Thursday at 8:40 AM

So if you use ImgBB to upload your own photos to link here, is a cyber trail created that will allow all manner of advertisers, delightful DLers, and assorted creeps and nuts to track you down?

Muriel and her “administrative assistant” (Pablo?) sail around the world on yachts on our dime while WE have to endure no image preview.

by Anonymousreply 46Last Thursday at 12:43 PM

ALSO the view counter has gone.

The view counter gave people some idea of whether a thread was worth clicking on - even if there hadn't been a ton of responses.

by Anonymousreply 47Last Thursday at 11:36 PM

And, image preview.

I wish Muriel had enough time to resurrect Trudy. But I think the world got too big for that to happen, long ago.

Yes indeed, we too use "cookies." Don't you just LOVE clicking on these things on every single site you visit? I know we do! You can thank the EU parliament for making everyone in the world click on these pointless things while changing absolutely nothing. If you are interested you can take a look at our privacy/terms or if you just want to see the damn site without all this bureaucratic nonsense, click ACCEPT and we'll set a dreaded cookie to make it go away. Otherwise, you'll just have to find some other site for your pointless bitchery needs.
