How to Post Images on BLF

Issue is on your end, works for everyone else…

I don’t find Imgur particularly user friendly though…
But it works.

I like, but the site is in German.

How to post a spreadsheet on the BLF forum?

Figured I start by asking here.

In the advanced editor there is the table function.
Tried pasting into that a couple of ways and it was a fail.

I would like to insert a spreadsheet from Excel or Calc.

I know I can do a jpg screen capture, but I’d like to have something that can be edited as more data becomes available.
Or copied by others to paste into other threads or formats.

Is such a thing possible?
All the Best,

I do not believe that it is possible to post an actual spreadsheet. But I think you can place the spreadsheet on something like Google Drive, OneDrive, etc. and then post a link to it.

Hopefully, someone else will chime in.

As far as I know, this is correct.


I PM'd Mr. Admin as he probably knows for sure.

Right, it’s not possible to post a live spreadsheet, just tables. A Google or Microsoft online spreadsheet with public sharing permissions might be a good option.

Thanks for the reply’s
It’s as I suspected.
All the Best,

Thanks for the tutorial.
let me try …

Hmmm, I tried a bunch of tricks, but could not get your image to post. Best I could do was post a link.


Normally an image link would end in the file name and image extension such as .jpg or .gif etc…

I can’t find any type of image link like that on the Flickr website.

Here is an example of what a typical image link would look like.

It’s got the website address and it ends with the image file name and the file extension.

You might try the Flickr app and see if it will give you a different image link. I don’t use Flickr but I do use Imgur and I notice that the phone app gives better links then the website does.

It’s this one:

You need to find the link in the webpage’s source code. Not so easy sometimes.

Yeah, there you go. I’m on my phone so I don’t think I can go into the source code. You found it on a PC, correct?


Yeah, flickr requires a few extra steps to get to the direct link, which is what you need to be able to display it correctly on BLF.

I failed and
don’t know what to do with Flickr.
How did you find that source code?

What about this :
(i tried Google drive) :

I don't see your image.

If you want a better chance of your image being visible, you need an image link that ends in .bmp .gif .jpg or .png

I’m on my phone too.
I’m traveling far away from home, no laptop/pc.
don’t have access to my pc/laptop. :person_facepalming:
I’ll try again later when I get home :smiley:

In firefox: Right click into page / select “show source code” from menu. Then search for “jpg”.

I need to get home and use my laptop then :smiley:
