Attaching images to posts - HOW TO
« on: January 03, 2015, 09:51:30 am »
Note: It is recommended to use images that are no larger than 640px wide.  Larger images will be reduced to fit this size.

To upload an image to your post,  click on the  "Attachments and other options"  below the text input box.

[ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Once opened, locate the Attach: section and click on the "browse" button and locate the image file on your computer that you want to attach. 

[ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

If you have more than 1 image to attach,  click (more attachments) under the "browse" button and repeat the process to locate the image file on your computer.

[ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

The attached images will appear at the bottom of your post by default.

Note:  You can stop here if you want, the rest is just optional formatting and is not required.

If you would like to place them inline with your post then just click on the (Insert Attachment #)

[ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

This will insert the appropriate BBCode into your post.  This BBCode can be moved to a different place in your post if your cursor was not where you wanted it by simply cut/paste.

Please note,  there is a limit on the size and number of images that can be attached in a single post.  You can reply with additional posts if you need to add more images.

FYI - When I try to insert an attachment and preview, I get the error, "[ Invalid Attachment ]". But when I post, the attachment appears inline where expected. Just a bug in the preview feature, I suppose.

Wow it works.  I stumbled on this post.  Is this How To listed on the home page for people to find it?  I couldn't find it until now.

That worked after I got the picture small enough.
It is a picture of my new house.

Question for Robo... if you uploaded the pic from your hard drive does it affect the post if you change the file structure on your hard drive after the post?

Na, just bass, shell crackers, and catfish.
We had gators twice so far.

I wouldn't be surprised if you didn't have them every year during mating season.

We only get them during droughts when every other water hole dries up.

Sorry,
Wildlife Management really gets upset if I do.
The previous owner was told by his wildlife buddy to just quietly take care of business. My wildlife buddy, who was also the director at that time, told me not to, someone else did that and the owner and the wildlife manager went to jail. I respect his decision. When I have a problem, I call a licensed trapper.

No,  once uploaded and posted the photo will be sourced from the cached copy on our server.
