Tips for posting images and links to these forums!

All right, I think I have figured out what is possible as far as posting images to this forum.

First of all, there are limits on new users posting images... you have to post two posts before you can include images in posts, and you have to post ten posts before you can put a lot of them in.  I didn't know that until some users told me, and I am pretty there is nothing I can do to change that unfortunately.  A couple folks here, Brian and Keith, just made a thread of empty posts just to get to #10, that's fine by me (it's easy to delete).  In the long run I don't see this as a big deal, more of a minor annoyance.

Second of all, it seems you cannot upload images directly to the forum via TinyPic or similar.  I admit that is a nice convenience of the old format if you just want to show one photo.  But most of us have photobucket accounts or some remote place photos can be stored.  That is what you will want to do to post photos here, I think for now unless I find out something different.

Third, this forum uses BBCode not HTML.  So if photobucket gives you a URL for your image with HTML attached to it, you need to drop the HTML and replace with BBCode.  This is not necessarily a bad thing; BBCode is actually very easy to use.  I offer an example below.  The top text is what you would want to type to get an image to appear.  It's just the URL with those tags at the beginning and end.  Remember the image has to already be online somewhere.  

Below that is an example of how you would input a link to another web site.

You can read more about BBCode at sites like this: http://www.dailywritingtips.com/forum/misc.php?do=bbcode
or just Google it.   Good luck!

Hey, I was never able to figure it out on the other board, butdo yo know if and how those little weather widgets could be inserted?  I tried yesterday, but it says it's either more than 400 characters; or possibly it's HTML?

Man, I really need to proofread... corrected lots of errors above.

I actually did disable the function that would allow images in signatures, since I felt it would be visually distracting.  If I were to enable that it would probably work.  I suppose if everyone agreed not to put anything too large in there then it might not be a problem.

Hey Dennis, for someone who doesn't know how to type, you sure can get pretty fancy with a computer!  Now quit showing off and show me how to get a weather widget!
