    Instructions for uploading images / posting images?

    Is there any instructions for posting images? I have tried three times and end up in some off forum area.

    Hello Bill, I wil try to help, however I am still trying to sort this out myself.

    Currently we do not have an on site image host, we are using off site links? here is a copy of what Dale did for me. He is working on a tutorial for all of us to use.

    QUOTED FROM DALE.

    lol! I have been working on a tutorial...I keep buggering up my screenshots though.

    Quickie instructions...

    The icon that is fourth from the right(host an image)...click on that.

    the upload box will open...then browse your picture.

    double click the picture you want to upload.

    click host it

    when it uploads there will be three codes shown. I usually copy the second one. I find it works better when you highlight it and copy the code.

    click the host an image icon again to close the upload box

    paste it into your post

    should work...i hope

    try it out in the test area.

    I am working on a visual tutorial to post in the Information section as we speak. In the meantime, here is a quickie tutorial...

    -The icon that is fourth from the right(host an image)...click on that.

    -The upload box will open...then proceed to browse for your picture.

    -Double click the picture you want to upload.

    -Click host it

    -When it uploads there will be three codes shown. I usually copy the second one. I find it works better when you highlight it and copy the code instead of clicking the copy button.

    -Click the host an image icon again to close the upload box

    -Paste it into your post.

    -Preview your post to see if it has worked


    Instructions for uploading picture from another URL:

    -Copy the images URL

    -Click on the third icon from the left(Image)

    -Paste it into the drop-down box and click OK

    -Image URL should automatically insert into your post

    -Preview to see if it has worked.


    I hope this works for you. You can try the test area for practice, it just takes a little getting used to.

    I will hustle my butt and get this tutorial posted ASAP.

    Thanks!
