How to post a photograph (there are two methods): -

Method 1

Enter one of Galleries (denoted by a camera next to the forum picture and name)

Choose the New Image tab (below the main navigation menu at the top of the page and next to the Forum Options tab).

In the Subject box, type a subject

Into the Description area, add any information regarding the picture you wish.

Beside the text that reads Post Options you will see some text that reads Image Manager, click this text

A new pop-up window should open (the File Manager window), choose the Browse command and another window will open called Choose File; use this to find the photo you wish to add from your local hard drive or area network.

Once you have found it, press Open and the Choose File window should disappear, leaving you with the File Manager window open.

Now you MUST choose the Add File command, or your photo will not be uploaded to the site.

You can repeat this step as many times as the Gallery allows (most of the Galleries on Talk Morgan allow 5 photos per post).

Once you have added all the files you wish, add a File Caption in the text box (for example, Johnís Morgan Plus 8).

Now click Done Adding Files which will return you to the main posting screen.

Press Submit and you have finished adding a photograph.

Congratulations! thumbs


___________________________



Or Method 2

If you'd like to host photos off-site, you can do so using these directions: -

Upload them to:

http://www.photobucket.com

User: talkmorgan

Password: talkmorgan

Either make your own album, or if you'd rather, just upload them to the one you are brought to as soon as you log onto the site. From there, you need to paste the: -

[img]urllinktoyourpictureinphotobucket[/img]

...in your post text to make the picture appear

Email them to yourself first from the iPhone and select "medium". Once received save them to the camera roll and it should work.

How come when you reply to posts you can attach photos but not when you initiate a post

Your pic size has to be below a certain bit-number. If the pic's volume is too big the system does not accept before you resize it.

Help.!!
Just spent an hour trying to get three photos on a post. I have resized them using third party software. Still too big!.
Based on the first post on this thread I have tried to use photobucket but the recommended Username talkmorgan and the Password talkmogan kept giving an error response. What am I doing wrong?

I think the TalkMorgan Photobucket account is closed. Why not set up your own account? It doesn't cost anything.

There has been previous problems with the talkmorgan photobucket account, some clown thought it might be funny to change the password I believe is where it all went wrong.
The result is that we open a personal photobucket account or a similar provider and copy and paste the IMG link directly into the post - other than a photo specific Gallery.

This also removes a little of the load for the administrators of the site.

I have on occasion posted on behalf of people if they hit the brick wall on it.

Good Luck.

p.s. We crossed over Tim.

I have my own account and used it and successfully posted my thread. Then when I looked at it on TM I found that my whole photobucket library was available to anyone looking at the photos on my thread. That said there was nothing particularly sensitive in my library but it is "my library" so I deleted the thread.

Photobucket isn't a private storage area, it's designed to host pictures for public viewing.

All in all the whole issue of images in UBB, the forum software, is a thorny issue. UBB is one of the best packages out there but its handling of images leaves a lot to be desired and the developers don't seem to be interested in resolving the problems. Browsing through their own user forum will come up with dozens of examples of frustrated forum administrators and a bundle of suggested fixes and work arounds that all require custom software and/or hands on administration.

The forum is http://www.ubbcentral.com/forums/ubbthreads.php/forum_summary

And when I went to get the link the first thing I noticed was this thread: http://www.ubbcentral.com/forums/ubbthre...load#Post260102

Other than the auto sizing of photos here is another issue which needs to be addressed by the forum software and that is the creation of periodic (daily, weekly ,monthly) folders so that the size of the image folders does not get out of hand. Huge image folders have the problem that they critically slow the forum software.

PS. Update! It does look as though some of these issues are being addressed. The upcoming version of UBB will have the possibility of automatically sizing attachments and it looks as though a lot of work is going into galleries, I hope this includes automatic re-sizing too.

For anyone interested:

Note that when you select to copy the BBCode version of the embed link the [img] codes are already supplied and you can just past it directly into your post without using the "Enter an image" button.

In the quote above there is a double set of the codes and if you make a mistake all you have to do is delete the outermost set.

I Post photos on other Forums and none of them have the ridiculous fire drill of maneuvering to get a photo into a Post. Simply go to your photo or picture folder and select the photo, period, end of monkeying around. They are automatically resized to fit the Forum.

When this forum was started the software was the best available. As it grew attaching photos to posts started to slow the forum down dramatically and the size of attachments was strictly limited.

Given that this forum is completely advertising free, run by volunteers and paid for by member donations. This is what we have unless someone wants to pay for it and do the work to migrate to a more up to date system.

Have you thought about using the "Preview Reply" button before you post, to check things are going to look as you expect? If you look at your post you'll see that you've doubled up the html image tags.

I do understand the constraints of advertising free and that indeed has its place. It is also in keeping with Morgan, which has zero advertising in “the colonies “.

I use Coffee Forums and they have advertising that is international in scpoe and some of it is very interesting and helps promote the hobby.
