São Tomé and Principe flag

Postby OldBoring » 2015-11-12, 13:32

Why can't I make the ownflag for São Tomé and Principe work?

Code: Select all

[ownflag=]https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/S%C3%A3o_Tom%C3%A9_and_Pr%C3%ADncipe#/media/File:Flag_of_Sao_Tome_and_Principe.svg[/ownflag]

Maybe the resolution in that particular version of the file is just too big.

Try this one! :)

Obrigado! I couldn't find other pics of it. Bing sucks at finding images. And even the Google mirror gets blocked after a while.

Try fucking around a bit more with Wikipedia next time. ;) :lol:

OK, I know, that's not the most helpful reply. :P What I really meant is if you go to the page for the picture, e.g. https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File ... incipe.svg, you'll see right below the image that they give various file resolutions for the picture. Try a smaller one (than the one on this page, in this case 800 x 400 pixels; I think I went with 320 x 160? :)) and then see whether that works.

I know. That's why I said "try fucking around a bit more with Wikipedia." That is, don't just take whatever you see first on Wikipedia; look for something else on it that will be more useful to you. :)
