Help on general forum functionality

Postby Ramona » Tue May 22, 2012 10:09 am

This is the first forum I've been on in years and this may sounds incredibly dumb but I have no idea how to make pictures appear on threads by using the 'img' thing....

Just call me stoopid :)

You just need to find a place to host your picture first (photobucket etc.) then you should be able to click on a link beneath that picture (which probably already has the code surrounding it) and cut and paste on to the forum.

Any probs let me know :)

As BS says, you need to store the image online somewhere. Photobucket provides the tag formats beneath images for using in various different websites, forums, blogs, etc. You can also hotlink almost any third party online image - although it's generally not good practice without permission as you're stealing bandwidth from the site hosting the image (and they can change it to whatever they want whenever they want).

To manually add an image to these pages, click on the 'Img' tag button and you'll get the following:
Code: Select all
[img] [/img]

And then you just stick the address of the image between those tags. So, using the FO forum header image as an example, it would be:
Code: Select all
[img]http://www.frasieronline.co.uk/assets/header/FrasierOnlineHeader.gif[/img]

to give you:
Image

Again, as BS says, give a shout if you get stuck and someone here can help you.
