    Posting images on a thread is so damned easy that this tutorial is a bit silly... But, here we are.

    Lets say you are creating a project thread for your deuce roadster build and, of course, you want to post images. First, click the "upload a file" button towards the bottom of the editor.

    post-image.jpg

    That will bring up a window that lets you select the image on your hard drive. Once you select it (you can select multiple images), click "open." The images will then upload to the H.A.M.B..

    From here, you can select whether the image is displayed as a thumbnail within the the post, a thumbnail at the bottom of your post, or a full image within your post.

    post.jpg

    Easy... And no more security token errors with any luck at all...

    Having issues uploading from a first gen. I-pad, tried the upload a file button, no luck, tried copy and paste, no luck. Anybody have some insight on this? Thanks for the upgrade looks great so far. Ryan

    Out with the old, in with the new – as they say. Digging the photo uploading.

    I dig that we can still link pictures like we did before, but the new way is sweet. Once again, looks awesome.

    image.jpg This is pretty easy. Of course I never had a problem before.

    image.jpg

    I did the full size first, then went back to try a thumbnail and the previous image I selected was still in the upload box. I selected a new (actually the same) image and it seems to have uploaded both of them at once. I expected the box to be blank on my second upload. I deleted the extra image before I hit the button to post. Maybe a glitch? I'm on my iPhone by the way.

    I just purposely tried posting a large file (3.7MB) and wasn't surprised that I received an error message that the file is too big. What is the max size that can be uploaded.
    GREAT work on the new version Ryan. Still finding new improvements. like the message bar that just popped up saying "Messages have been posted since you loaded this page" That is great. Again GREAT job on the new version Ryan!!!!

    Just a photo test AND to add my huge thanks to Ryan for an awesome job. I've just started pecking around. Will spend more time tonight checking out the different features.

    OK, trying to figure out how to get the photos at the bottom of my text, or in between text like if I'm goign to do an adverture thread.

    If you type first then upload a photo, the text will be first. Make sure the cursor is after the text before you click upload.

    If you upload a photo, then type, the photo will be first. Make sure the cursor is before the text before you click upload.

    Basically, where ever the cursor is when you click up image.jpg load is where your photo will end up. I purposely put the cursor between the P and L of upload and then uploaded the file. So that's where it ended up.

  25. Come on Denise,think back to the old days when you taught me the star blvd. way of posting and when that went down you then taught me the Photobucket way,,you will get it when you have time.

    Then you can teach me again!:D HRP

    You:)will:Dfigureo_OIt:rolleyes:out:cool:

    I think since you're on your phone, the cursor is moving on you when you use a finger or thumb to scroll to the upload button. Try it on the computer when you get home.
