    Default How to paste images in susepaste.org? Login with OpenID didn't work.

    I've been trying to paste an image in susepaste.org so I can link to it in the forum. After selecting the image, the CREATE button is
    grayed out. Clicking it *at first* did nothing as far as I could see - no upload of the image, no activity indicator in firefox tab.

    According to http://openidexplained.com/get I should already have an OpenID, as I have both yahoo and google accounts.

    I tried to login both with my yahoo and google logins as well as with the weird logins the site indicated - for instance, yahoo.com for Yahoo, and something else for Google. Every time I got redirected to a blank page with this text:

    Authentication error; not a valid OpenID.
    But on the fifth attempt I clicked the grayed-out CREATE button and the upload worked, giving me the image link to post in the forum.

    I've tried with a second image and it worked too.

    So, if I actually need an openID login how do I get it? Or do I already have it, error message notwithstanding, and it logged in anyway? (I think not as the susepaste page did not change, still had the "login" link at the top right)

    Slightly off-topic, how do I show a thumbnail of the image as I've seen in many posts, like for instance in https://forums.opensuse.org/showthre...25#post2790125 ?

    Or even paste the full image, as in other posts in the thread above?

    Clicking the "insert Image" button in the editor toolbar does not accept a susepast link like http://susepaste.org/71145644 , it complains the link have to point to an image, i.e., a URL pointing to a .jpg file or other.

    TIA,

    Bruno

    I may be not the best informed here, but I always point people to http://paste.opensuse.org/ and not to susepaste.org (well they look the same).

    I did not login whatever (but I was loged into the forums and thus into all openSUSE sites as I understand it), clicked on Image (upper right) and then used the browse button, pointed to a picture and whoops.

    the result: http://paste.opensuse.org/37877515 .

    The login, as I understand it, is just for the site admins. You don't
    need to login to use it.

    OK, thanks Jim. Weird that it didn't work the first few times. Reminded me of http://dilbert.com/strip/2004-02-01

    Any tips about the thumbnail thing?

    Ah, the page looks the same but it's not the same link susepaste.org I tried. That may be it.

    Thank you, Henk.

    An alternative is to upload the image to opensuse.org, then link.

    1. Login, the openSUSE forums is fine and uses the same authentication.

    2. Create a wiki page (follow the instructions in my signature)

    3. In the left margin navigation pane, click on the link "upload file" and follow the instructions.

    4. When completed, you will see a thumbnail and a link associated with the image.
    Use the image link in your Forum post.
