Is it possible to put an image from Google Drive into a forum post?

4 years ago
Hello,

Is it possible to put a .png image from Google Drive into a forum post?

The sharing on Google Drive is set up right.  I know that because I can show the image by using the link provided by Google Drive.

I tried using it in these forums by using the Picture icon, but it does not work.  I can put the link into a Link and it shows the linkable url of the image and that works fine.

Any help that anybody can provide would be gratefully appreciated.

Thanks,
Tony

I'm sorry for my seemingly trivial issue, but I did get this to work:

I put this:

enclosed in (the opening and closing img element.)

into the post and it gives this:

Hi,

You can try this



Steps to do it:
- Create a folder named "Public" under "My Drive" folder
- Right click on this folder, context menu opened, choose "Share..."
- In the "Share with others" dialog, click on "Get shareable link" (after that, the link icon will turn to green)
- Click on "Done" button
- Drag and drop an image to this folder
- Right click on this image, context menu opened, choose "Share..."
- In the "Share with others" dialog, click on "Copy link"
- Paste this copied link to a new tab, an image will display. Right click on this image.
- Choose "Copy image URL" from context menu
- Finally, paste this copied link to your nopCommerce forum post.

Hope this help :)

Thanks ima9ines.  That is basically what I did.

>> - Choose "Copy image URL" from context menu <<
For this, I did not see  "Copy image URL", so I used Properties and copied the Address(URL).

I'm not sure of why we can't use the link provided in the Google share dialog box to do this, but this way does work.

Thanks,
Tony
