SITE HELP - Image Posting Assistance

After assisting a number of people with image posting and seeing the number of enquiries, I've started putting together HELP threads. It's impractical to put all of this information in one thread. Inevitably, these threads will become 'spread out'.

So, until Adam gets a chance to install an alternative method, I've created this as something of an Index thread and will list the various HELP threads that I've created. Of course, nothing saying other HELP threads (created or yet to be) can't be added here.

Then all that is needed, is for this one thread to be bumped from time to time, to provide both visibility of, and navigation to, the various HELP threads.

  • SITE HELP - Posting Images Introduction - An introduction to posting, images and terms.
  • SITE HELP - Posting Single Images Via New Thread - The simplest way of posting up a single image and accompanying text.
  • SITE HELP - External Image Linking - The first of three methods by which you can post multiple pics in a new thread, or one or more images in an existing thread.(The last method will follow as I get time).
  • SITE HELP - Internal Image Linking - The second of three methods by which you can post multiple pics in a new thread, or one or more images in an existing thread.(The last method will follow as I get time). 
  •  

    Any worthwhile document including (hopefully) this one needs constant use assessment and may need alterations from time to time to make processes clearer and easier to understand. Similarly, dozens of brains are always better than one, so if you have a suggestion for documentation, sing out. This includes technical terms that you may not understand.

    Tony - Gallery

    Tue, 2008-10-07 06:59

    Tony, Adam's away for a week. Not sure if the Mods (Andy Mac, Tim or Colin (Hayes) can set them up. If they can, best send one of them a PM. If not best send Adam a PM. They could easily miss this posted request. 

    Not sure if you know how to PM in here - so if you don't, just click anywhere you see the desired person's name in blue (Online Users list if they are online, or in a post where they have posted) - this will access there profile. Then click on write private message at the bottom:

    Why not Flicker???

    Use a public gallery and just add a link to your tag line... Just above or below the "piscatorial idiot" LOL. Tag your pics there and you may well become a star.

    Hey Aussie Proud

    Wed, 2009-01-21 08:53

    Welcome to the site mate! Wink

    Flick the Administrator (Adam (Gallash)) or one of the Mods (Andy (Mac), Tim or Colin (Hays)) a PM and they'll set up a photo gallery for you. Just tell them what you want to call it.

    Hope that helps :))

    Update...

    Wed, 2009-12-09 07:02

    G'day Millsy

    I wrote these instructions some time ago and I know Adam has had a few site builds and changes installed since. If I get a chance, I'lll try and update the instructions, but at the moment, I'm as busy as one armed bosnian brickie.

    Hopefully Ads or one of the others will see your post and offer a solution in the meantime mate.

    Make sure the photo is resized, 800x600 will be fine.  You can email it to me and I will have a look for you:
