How to put photos onto the standard forum posts.

The first thing you have to understand is that due to memory space limits it is not possible to upload photos directly onto the website posts. The way it’s done is to first upload your photos to another website ie http://photobucket.com. Once you have registered with them and uploaded your photos into your album you can then link them to our website.

How to do it:

1. Login to photobucket
2. Browse to your album and find the required photo
3. Click on the required photo
4. Click resize Large (640 x 480)
5. At the left hand side of the image you should see a box with Share this image
6. Click on the IMG Code in the box, it should bring up a caption saying copied.
7. You can now go to the MX-5 Scotland Website
8. Create or open the forum post you wish to use
9. In the text box right click and paste the IMG link
10. It should look something like this:
Code: Select all
[img]http://i726.photobucket.com/albums/ww263/Ian/MX-5%20Parts%20for%20sale/Cases4.jpg[/img]

11. Add text as required and click submit
12. Your photo should now be displayed on the website
13. If you wish to put more than one image in the post, repeat steps 1 to 9 above for each photo.

Hope this helps. :lol:
