How to post pictures on a thread?
« on: October 22, 2013, 02:15:42 pm »
I'm sorry if this is really easy, or really obvious. But how do you actually get images to appear in your posts on threads? without having to link them?

well, we don't host pictures unless we own the copyright to it (or people allow us to host their copyrighted pictures).
So you have to post it on another host that allows hotlinking, such as imgur, imageshack, imagebam, whatever.

Most of those sites give so-called BB-Code, our forum recognises this, so just copy-paste the BB-Code.

You can also do it by hand, let me explain.
we have an image: https://theperfectboobs.net/images/tpblogo_new.png
just entering the link as I did, the forum will recognise it as a link that you can click on, but it will not show it once clicked.
For the forum to show the picture, you need to encapsulate it with the IMG tag, that means: indicate when the image link begins and indicate when it ends.
Code: [Select]
[img] indicates that the link begins and [/img] indicates that it ends.As you can see, I had to put it into a code block, or the forum will think it's an image that I'm trying to write.

so, the code to an image would be:
Code: [Select]
[img]https://theperfectboobs.net/images/tpblogo_new.png[/img]Which will do this:



Now, this works as it should, but you can't click on it anymore, it's just displayed, it's no longer a link. In many cases you will want to display a small image here (thumbnail) and when clicking on it, it will show the big version of it. (We don't want huge images to be loaded here immediately, because it's a lot of scrolling, and cellphones/tablets will crash).

Do do this, we use the URL tag:
Code: [Select]
[url]https://theperfectboobs.net/images/tpblogo_new.png[/url]This just says: there's a link, if you click on it, go to that address, and display the address as text.
This is what it will result in:
https://theperfectboobs.net/images/tpblogo_new.png

But we don't want to display the address as text, we want the image to be shown!
So, there's a different way of writing this, by adding an attribute to the URL tag, like this:
Code: [Select]
[url=https://theperfectboobs.net/images/tpblogo_new.png]  [/url]This works exactly the same, but instead, it shows nothing because there is nothing to display, it does not know what to put there.

So, now we put the IMG tags between the URL tags and it looks like this:
Code: [Select]
[url=https://theperfectboobs.net/images/tpblogo_new.png]   [img]https://theperfectboobs.net/images/tpblogo_new.png[/img]   [/url]
And it looks like this, and it's clickable:
   
   


Hope this explains it a bit.
It's a bit complex, which is why those sites like imagebam give you generated BB code.
I want something good to die for, to make it beautiful to live.

I should have asked admins,

"Can I as a member, have a picture of mine, that is not copyrighted, given to you (the website) to host?  The model gave me permission to post them here."

Only star members can do this. But our upload tool is rather buggy so a 3rd party host would still be better.
