How to Post a Photograph - FAQ - 10/12/07 11:51 AM

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, Johns 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

Mine are always rejected as too big (from iPhone)

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:

Yes, if you remove some of the additional html coding you still had in your image link smile

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.

Please may I have an idiots guide to Method 1. What does “enter one of galleries mean?” How is this achieved?
Posted By: ChrisConvertible

Re: How to Post a Photograph - FAQ - 17/09/19 04:32 AM

Here is my version of an idiots guide. A few pointers first.

1. If I take a photo with my phone then I text it to my home e-mail address, this is done by putting the e-mail address in the phone number. I created a contact I called home email for this. Why I do this is because TXT's will shrink the photo from something stupid like 5MB to about 500KB which is much better. Gets sent to my computer quicker, loads onto TM-IMG quicker, and takes up less space on TM-IMG. If I take a photo with my camera then I use paint to shrink it to somewhere between 200KB and 500KB using the resize option.

2. I always just browse for photos on my computer rather than trying anything else.

3. You must be in full editor to be able to get to the Insert Image Link which is to the right of the Smiley face. When you click on it you get a popup window for you to cut and paste the image URL into.

Here is the photo I used to do this with. It is my Bengal with my Wife's Siberian. A really odd relationship, my Bengal loves me the most of anything, then my wife's cat then either my wife or any visitor we have - a real extrovert who will demand attention from anyone and everyone, my wife sometimes feels put out that he seems to like visitors as much as her. While her cat loves the Bengal most of anything, then my wife, I am last and will hide from any visitor as much as he can. Unfortunately my Bengal has Lymphoma and is currently on Chemotherapy that is costing me about $600 a week and he will be on it for the rest of his life which is going to add up, however he is very happy at the moment and full of life. Just another thing that popped up trying to prevent me saving up that Morgan deposit I keep getting close to but never close enough.

Anyway onto the guide.

Setup a TM-IMG account, I used the same user name and password as my talk Morgan account. Then once logged on browse for photos on your computer, note I have managed to upload 8 photos at once, so you can use control and shift to select more than one photo.

[Linked Image]

Then select a category, I used everything else in this case as cats are not really car related.

[Linked Image]

After the photos have uploaded then you have to find them, I have not setup any albums but you will see on the right it shows I have 13 Images, 0 Albums and 2 Likes which was me clicking about confused one day. If you click on the Images it will show the photos below.

[Linked Image]

Click on the photo you want and it will display big

[Linked Image]

Then you have to click on the photo to get it to show the useful details about the photo such as the image URL.

[Linked Image]

However if the photo is a typical large photo you need to scroll down to see the useful stuff and click Embed Codes.

[Linked Image]

Put the mouse over the right side of the image URL (second box) and you will see a copy button appear so click that.
[Linked Image]

Then go to talk Morgan and the post you are writing, click the Insert Image Link (remember to be in Full Editor) and paste the Image URL into the popup window that has appeared, you don't need to worry about the http that is already there as it will disappear as you paste the URL.

[Linked Image]

Now it should have put the img tags with the image url within your post. It should look something like this.

[Linked Image]

Then you can check it is right by using Preview Reply

Hopefully that helps everyone. There are lots of posts from new members and I would really like to see their cars so I am hoping this helps them.

Re: How to Post a Photograph - FAQ - 17/09/19 03:34 PM

It should be added that if you scroll down a little in the Embed codes you will find the codes for BBCode. That is the shortcode that many forums use. When you copy the BBCode, which already includes the img tags, you can paste it directly into your post where ever you like without resorting to the image button.
