Posting images in the forum

Post  DavidZ on Sat Jul 19, 2014 8:18 pm

Here are the steps for posting images in the forum. Let me know if you have trouble with them



1)      Choose the icon that says “Host an image” when you hover over it. On mine it’s the 11th one from the right.
2)      In the little dialog box that pops up, choose the Browse button and go find your image.
3)      When you get back to the dialog box, choose “host it”.
4)      In the next dialog box click into the Image: box and hit the copy button.
5)      Go back to your posting and right click and choose Paste.
6)      Viola!

If you want to post a video, easiest way to do that is to email it to me (david(at)davidzink.com) and tell me which post you want to put it in.

Or you can upload it to youtube and post the link. There is a button up top to post a Youtube link.

I use Photobucket and it seems to work fine (usually, I guess, as far as I know). Are you saying using the local forum host is "better" to use (although I'd rather use Photobucket or possibly another photo hosting site)? I was somehow thinking there were upload limits to it. Is the occasional "for admin eyes only" an issue with Photobucket hosting?

Either one is fine for hosting. Just thought people would like instructions on how to do it through the forum.

The other issue was a permissions issue.
