POSTING TEXT / IMAGES / MORE TEXT and then more images...
« on: December 07, 2017, 04:45:24 PM »
The following, originally from Supernova777:

If you have a Large Image (Over 300 Pixels in Width or Height) then, Please use the following:

Quote
Code: [Select]

OR
Code: [Select]



I've some large image files to post and I'd like to apply the above (translation please?)

Also, yet to discover the "ultra secret" of posting TEXT, followed by inserted image, then MORE TEXT... and then more image(s)... etc. All my attached images seem to end up at the bottom of all posts that I submit. (crying).

the original stickied post he is responding to is here:
http://macos9lives.com/smforum/index.php/topic,835.0.html

Code: [Select]
[img width=300]http://url/image/pic.jpg[/img]
what is it about the post that you do not understand?
all u need to do is wrap the url for the image in an img tag that has a height or width property. the syntax for which is easily observed.

Code: [Select]
1) *URL* (start with just the url)
2) [IMG] *URL* [/IMG] (wrap it in img tags)
3) [IMG Width=300] *URL* [/IMG] (add the width property to the opening img tag)

step 1) find the correct url for the image you are trying to post (making sure not to take the url of the THUMBNAIL mini version)

step 2) wrap it in an img tag, this can be done "by hand" by editing the code, or using the "full editor" you can highlight/select the image or image url + press the "image" button (which all it does is add the "img" and "/img" open + close bbcode tags)

step 3) add the width property; which is easy to do, u simply edit the text as follows:
Code: [Select]
change [img] to [img width=300]

Thanks. Seems that the simple answer for me would me that these image files first need be “parked” somewhere on the web (duh… U-R-L), as opposed to my common, direct upload/post of them to the forum. So simple perhaps, it simply escaped me.

yes to do it without uploading the images elsewhere you have to first upload the image and then edit your post afterwards, clicking the image to expand the thumbnail, then right clicking and copying the images url and then editing your post and pasting the url into where its needed to be.. its a bit tricky to do it the first time but once youve done it its very easy to do again and again

it might be easier for some to use an img uploading service such as https://imgbb.com/
which lets u upload an image anonymously and then gives you a url to post that image elsewhere on the internet: https://ibb.co/******

to publish pages of combined text + images
you should use this technique, using the full editor here on macos9lives
you can use the img button, to insert the tags and then paste the url
at the location in the message body that you are writing/publishing
