Re: Site How-To`s-Adding Images to Posts

Alun » Nov 24 '13
Just to let you know that I will be doing a series of how-to`s but only here for another week and then away on holiday for a couple of weeks so might not get much done.


But would just say that to add photos there is a small camera icon just above the text entry box.  Click that and you can choose to upload the pictures (max 0.5MB) and these will be available to you in other posts, add from the files you`ve previously added or add from a URL.  For the last just use the picture address of the image you want to use.  


HTML code is disabled to prevent spurious code being added to the site so you can`t paste in HTML or BBCODE, so using the URL and that camera icon is the way forwards.


I wouldn`t add images using the Choose File box below as these just appear as links and you can`t use them again and it is exactly the same as using the camera icon and uploading the files.  Same image size restrictions apply.

Does this mean we`ll have to duplicate all the pics we need to post( not pc savvy btw) or does the site auto re-size?

The images have to be below 0.5MB to be able to upload and it won`t resize larger files I`m afraid. Same situation as with the old software but that had a 300kb limit, so we`ve nearly doubled it.

But once you`ve loaded them they`ll be in the Gallery option and you can use them again without having to reload them anywhere.

Alun im not seeing a camera icon at all. Is this due to using my phone to access the site.
