WEBMASTER EDIT: this post was written before we set up the "attachments" tool. The best way to include photos in your posts now is to click "Add Attachements" and use that tool. It will include a nice thumbnail of the photo, which can be clicked to enlarge. And it's easy!

Read below if you're still interested in "the old way..."


Here is a way to insert images in your posts.

Note: This method uses images that are in your FHO Member Homepage. There's another way to do this that uses a third-party image host and I'll cover that in a separate post.

The first step is to upload images to your FHO Member Homepage (explained in another posting).

1. Select "Reply to Post" or open a "New Topic"

2. When you come to the point where you want to insert an image:
a) Open another internet browser window:
b) Go to your FiddleHangout Member Homepage,
c) Open your photo album that contains the photo you want.to insert

3. Enlarge the image by clicking on it, then right-click on the image and select "Properties" (i.e., left-click on the word Properties). It will bring up a box that look like this:


4. Highlight the Address (URL) code as shown here:


5. Press Ctrl-C to copy the code to your clipboard.

6. Go back to the other browser window where you were writing your post (back at the start of step 2) and click on your message box so you have the familiar "blinking edit bar" where you want to insert your image.

7. Press Ctrl-V to insert the code from your clipboard. It will look something like this:
fiddlehangout.ws/users/photos/...12008.jpg

8. Highlight all of the text you just pasted (from ... to ...jpg) and click on the insert image icon that I've circled here:


9. Continue writing your post.

10. To check to see if it all worked, click on the preview button before clicking on "Post Reply" or "Post New Topic"

how did you get your pic in the author section. I downloaded a pic but it only came up under my photo album. Sorry if these directions were for that , I thought they gave directions for a pic within the response of the post. Today is my first day on this site.
thanks

WilliamP -

Do you mean an avatar? The graphic on the left of the posts? If so, that is added in your "Edit Profile area, on the righthand side is a section for "Profile Photo." Upload your picture there or select from the stock photos.

I don't see any of these images, just a little broken file icon. Why?

Hmm. Domain where the images are is a parked domain name (with godaddy? ew!) fiddlehangout.ws

I thought images were on hangoutstorage.com . . .

Mods better doublecheck with Eric. Maybe it's just that the post needs editing to reflect site changes, but better to know for sure.

Eric is moving some things around in order to facilitate the changes he is making. Fiddlehangout.ws in where he is parking things.

BHO is his biggest problem at the moment, since it is the biggest forum.
