Image/Video Uploading

Post by TssCman123 on Fri Jun 14, 2013 2:50 pm

Due to the low storage space, users cannot attach images, videos, or any other files to their posts.  They can upload images to the board's image host by following the instructions below:

  1. Upload the image to the site's image host by pressing the button, selecting the image from your computer, selecting "none" under "resize image", then pressing the "Host it" button.
    Notice:  Do not choose any other option under "resize image", because the board already  reduces the image size.  If you resize the image, whenever users click on the image, the full size will not be shown.
  2. Once the image is uploaded, copy the URL under "Image url:".
    Notice:  Do not select the provided BBC codes, as they contain links.
  3. Press the button and paste the copied URL in the "URL" field.  Do not enter an image width or height.

If the image is not something unnecessary like a stock image, users are recommended to upload it to the gallery, then insert the image into the post using the supplied BBC code.  If the images are of collections or a set of images taken of the same system (or something related), they should be uploaded into your personal album.

Users can insert YouTube videos into their post by clicking on the button, then pasting the URL of the YouTube video in the "URL" field.

If the user is in the code mode of the post editor, a YouTube video can be inserted using the following code:

All of the characters after the "" in the YouTube URL should be placed in between the YouTube tags.
