HOW-TO: Add pictures/images to the site

Before you start:

1. You must have an account on the fishwrecked site.

2. Your picture must be under one megabyte. If you need to resize the image under Windows XP, I recommend downloading Microsoft's Image Resizer Powertoy. This adds a 'Resize Picture' command to the right-click context menu in Windows Explorer. The medium setting should be perfect for uploading to the site.

Step 1 - Click 'create content' in the main navigation menu. Select create image, and upload.

Or

Step 2 - Click the 'image assist' icon underneath the body text box.

Step 3 - A popup will open. Select the 'add image' link in the upper left corner.

Step 4 - Give the image a title (required), select an image gallery (optional), and choose a local image on your hard drive. Add a description, too, just for good karma.

Step 5 - Click submit.

Step 6 - A thumbnail will appear in the Image Assist Popup. Click it.

Step 7 - Resize the image as appropriate using the dialog boxes in the bottom half of the Image Assist popup. Choose whether to display the photo full sized or as a thumbnail. Change you caption if you really, really, want to.

Step 8 - Click the 'insert image' button at the bottom of the popup, and--presto!--it will be added to you new forum entry.

How do you add a URL to text ?, this code below doesn't seem to work

Adding links to text

Tue, 2005-08-30 08:48

For the moment I'll add a module that converts URLs to links automatically. This should be done by day's end. In the near future we will likely add something like TinyMCE Editor.

TinyMCE

TT,

I've put TinyMCE on now.. We were playing with it before but decided that it was a bit fiddly.. I guess we will let you decide for yourself now..

I'm still playing with it, but if you are still having issues tomorrow night be sure to let me know.

Cheers,

Sam

Be nice if users could upload their images the correct way round rather than this old Ba#t*rd having to turn his head sideways and lay on a pillow to view them!

Reading four posts up from yours, it looks like you need to PM Adam with the name you want to call it and ask him to set it up.
