Title: How to post a picture on the Forum
Post by: joe_347V on April 17, 2011, 08:16:45 pm
Code: [Select]
[img]http://is this how you post a picture here? otherwise i would do it[/img]

Hey Aaron to post a picture here you need to put the URL of the picture in between the two img tags like this:

Code: [Select]
[img] Picture URL Here [/img]
Say you want to post  this pic  (http://www.galleryoflights.org/mb/gallery/albums/userpics/normal_IMG_4321.JPG)

You would enter it in like this:
Code: [Select]
[img] http://www.galleryoflights.org/mb/gallery/albums/userpics/normal_IMG_4321.JPG [/img]
And this would be what shows up:
(http://www.galleryoflights.org/mb/gallery/albums/userpics/normal_IMG_4321.JPG)

The img tags also work in the gallery if you want to post a extra pic in the description or comment section. and hope this helps.

It works without the spaces between the [img] tags and url as well.

Just stay under 800 pix in width and the forum should look fine, also HTML codes ARE NOT SUPPORTED on this forum. For light related images feel free to use the gallery but for other pics  flickr, photobucket, imageshack, imgur etc would be better. For some of them you can just upload.

Please do not upload irrelevant pictures on the gallery, pictures of stuff related to lighting is OK. 

Also that post was in reply to someone else on the forum as you can see by the quotes and is not intended as a general guide, thank you.

Here's (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BBCode) a list of most of the codes that work on here.

Well the thing is, members need a QUICK access to BBCode tags. Nothing's more annoying than having to surf through a hundred websites to find an answer to a question as simple as how to embed a picture in a forum post. Joe as linked the Wikipedia's BBCode page, which is very clean and complete, so I don't think we need anything else  ;)
