Newbie Tip: Posting images

Post  TIG on Tue Jun 03, 2008 1:47 am

There are two ways to post images on this board style.

The quickest is to click on the little icon (at the top of you post) that looks like a wee polaroid photo. A box will pop up with a space to enter the url where your photo is hosted (I use photobucket, but there are many other options.) Click OK. I always preview my post when adding pics, just to be sure the code is not futzed up.

Another way, that becomes easier over time, is to type [ img ] your url here [ /img ] without the spaces between img and the []s. Wink

I don't know what I'm doing wrong. I have typed in the URLs for my pics and I can see them while I am posting, but as soon as I hit send and then the post shows up, all I see is the URLs and not the pics. See my example in the thread below:

Oh and don't worry, it's not like you guys are missing masterpiece pics or anything...but I wanna share too! lol!

Are you typing in the image code before and after? I rarely use the buttons at top, because I find it easier just to type the code. Be sure to put at the end.


If you still have trouble, PM me the url, and I will send you the code to copy and paste. Smile

Interesting... I wonder why that is not working...? Testing:



Does not work for me, either. Let me try one of mine:



Hmm. I wonder if it is an issue with your hosting site...? Let me play a bit more and see what's wrong.

Ohh, hey... does your image have a suffix? like .jpg? I don't see one, and I don't know that it will post as an image without one.

Well, I guess I'm getting somewhere because I typed in .jpg at the end and I now have a red x. I haven't had any problem post on other sites but at the other sites I'm just able to copy and paste my pics in. Maybe it's Shutterfly?
