java disabled or no main menu showing above - use links
Note - This and three other pages dealing with posting images were made long ago to primarily assist people on a forum when trying to include pictures in a post. The basic approach is still probably of some help but recent methods may vary.
There are two main approaches to this, but
they share a common factor. By some means
an image file has to finish up on a server
- either directly on the THR server ......
or a server elsewhere. It cannot otherwise
(NOTE - the descriptions apply to
last version of VBulletin but hopefully will
still help explain the basics).
to posts -
there is the attaching of an image you have available
and prepared, on your hard drive .... to a message
you have written in the reply box.
The process places that image to be available on the
THR server, but because the board is not set up to
immediately display the image, you only see a link.
The method of circumventing this will be discussed
with the help of images on a dedicated page.
It is worth pointing out also - only one attachment
per message can be used, and so if multiple pictures
are to be posted this way, then each will require
a seperate use of ''Reply''.
The ''How To''
page should help you.
linking in Posts'' -
you may have an option to have your pictures hosted
on a web site that gives free space, or even better,
have your own web space somewhere. I have one or two
servers where I keep images and so am able to link
direct to those by writing in their URL's (addresses)
into the [IMG] tags used in VBCode within reply windows.
A further option at times is to link to someone else's
picture which normally shows on their site - an example
being perhaps a picture of a specific gun on, say,
CDNN's site. In this case you have to get the image's
''properties'' to find the correct URL and then use
that. This presumes that the site in question does
not disallow ''hot linking''.
The details of this approach are discussed with accompanying
pictures on a dedicated page.
This page should
which method you wish to use, go take a look
at the most relevant page. If the explanations
seem to be inadequate, I would welcome feedback
in order to make improvements. The aim is
to make it clear and easy for those new to
