HOW TO POST PHOTOS AND VIDEOS ON HERE.

Post by admin »

HOW TO POST A PHOTO ON THIS FORUM.

You can display practically any photo on the net on here. Facebook, websites anywhere.
Facebook image links do expire after a time, though.

If you use blogger, log in, click on 'new post' and you'll get this toolbar at the top of your post window.

If you have posted on your blog before, you should be familiar with finding it. It is a lot like using Microsoft Word.

You are looking for the little dark square (over the 'S' in the Slade logo in the pic I put up above). Next to the [-] hyperlink symbol.

That will let you browse for a pic on your computer or phone. Click 'Choose Files'.

Choose the picture. Once it has loaded you need to click on it again so it has a blue border around it and then click 'Select'.

It will upload to blogger. Click UPDATE at the top right of the page to save the post.

Then view the blogger page post in a new window and you should be able to right click on the image and then select 'Copy Image Link'

You can then do a post on here and insert a photo by clicking the image button between the * button and the hyperlink button above the posting space on this page. That will create img tags on this page.
You need to place the link to the picture in-between them, leaving no spaces on either side. Pressing Ctrl + V on your keyboard will drop it in. Click submit at the bottom and your picture will display.

HOW TO POST A VIDEO ON THIS FORUM

Find the video you want to link to on Youtube, Vimeo etc...

Get the URL / web address of the video from the top of the page (highlight the web address, then ctrl + C to copy)

On the forum in a new post, press the media button below. That will give you two tags [media] and [/media]
Click in between them and ctrl+V to paste the web address. As shown below.
