Here’s how to post pictures on this board software.
You have two options.
Use the Attachments: block below your post window. You are allowed to upload any normal image file up to 1024kb (which is pretty big). The board software will automatically resize your images to fit, so just send ’em up. The downside is the attachments will display AFTER your post.
This is the option to use if you want to put images IN THE POST ITSELF, for example so you can narrate a trip report. First you need to host the images elsewhere. You can use photobucket.com, flickr.com, or even facebook.com to host your images. (I use facebook all the time). Once your images are hosted on the internet, open another tab in your browser and navigate to the image you want to use.
Right click the image and bring up a small dialog box. The name of the command you need will depend on your browser. In Chrome, select “Copy Image URL.” In Firefox, select “Copy Image Location.” In Safari, select “Copy Image Address“. If you are unlucky enough to be using Internet Explorer, select ‘Properties,’ then when it brings up the image information, highlight the information in “Address (URL)” and push CTRL-C to copy.
Once you have the image location copied to your clipboard, come back to the board software and place your typing cursor where you want the image to wind up. Click the [ img ] button at the top of your typing window and it will bring up a dialog box. Paste your image location into the dialogue box by pushing CTRL-V or CMD-V (on Mac). Then hit enter twice and the image code will be placed for you.
This board can now use both HTML codes and BB Codes to input pictures. So to input an image you can EITHER use [ img ] http://www.yourimagehere.com/pic.jpg [ /img ] (close the spaces) or instead you could use <img src="http://www. yourimagehere .com/pic.jpg" />. It takes just about as long to type the one as the other so just use whichever you are comfortable with. If you use the button at the top of a post window it will plug in HTML code, but either method now works.
Let me know if you have questions and feel free to practice below.
