How to post pictures on this forum

Postby Paul » Mon Jan 02, 2017 11:03 am


You have two options for uploading images to this forum:

option 1) Make a link to a picture you are hosting on another site such as photobucket or on your own personal web space. To do that, you just need to add the URL to your post, highlight that and then click the "Img" button above the text composition area to convert that into a link the site can display

option 2) you can upload the picture directly to the Boxertrix site as an attachment. To do that, in the area below the text composition box, you should see the following tabbed area:

image1.jpg (101.53 KiB) Viewed 1886 times

If you click on the add files button, you will get a dialog to upload images. Once you have done that, if your file was called image1.jpg, you would see this:

image2.jpg (183.21 KiB) Viewed 1886 times

Put the cursor back in the text composition window, where you would like the image to appear and then press the "place inline" button to insert a reference to the image.

Simples. You can slightly speed up the process if you can see an image file in a folder on your local computer you just can drag and drop it on the text composition window to shortcut the first part of the process.

There is a limit on the size of the image files, but it's a fairly generous half a megabyte. If you are taking photos direct from your 20 megapixel camera, you will have to reduce the size first before uploading them, or use option 1 above to link to a copy on another web site.


You really need only two tools: WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and it should, use WD-40. If it moves and shouldn't, use the tape.
