How do you get a photo to show on your forum posts? I have loaded a couple but cannot see where to attach them.

Re: Photos on Posts

Open the "advanced" page, use the "manage attachments" to load your pics, upload them and submit.

Re: Photos on Posts

I have found the easiest is to load your pictures to an off site facility like Photo Bucket, and link them back here or any forum you participate on.

We currently have a great thread on lithium house bank batteries, here is a picture from my Photo Bucket account, rather easy to link.

Re: Photos on Posts

I think it is the button at the bottom right of where you post with the dialog box. I never use it, as I use PhotoBucket but I'll give it a try.

Re: Photos on Posts

Click this box and it'll open up a new window to add pictures. They do have to be smaller then what is stated in the window. It's good for short vides too.

And don't go too fast. The system has to think a bit.

Re: Photos on Posts

They work fine for me. I've done photobucket, some sites I have to... but to me it's just another step I have to do....
1) clik on "post reply" (not quick reply)
2) clik on "advanced"
3) clik on "browse"
4) Find your photo on your computer and "open" it.
5) clik on "upload"

Re: Photos on Posts

Using Photo Bucket saves some time on your step 5, waiting for your picture to upload to this site, plus like I said, your ready for all sites you participate in.

Yeah, it's wierd how different links have diff experiences. This site is super fast for me usually. Photobucket much slower. Whatever works!

Re: Photos on Posts

Your right, the upload to PB is a bit slower than here, but once on PB it can be used quickly here and on other forums.

Don't use "Post Quick Reply", use "Go Advanced".
