Default gallery help

I figured out the gallery to upload pics - instead of hotlinking them.

The first pic I uploaded and used in a thread was fine.

Then I uploaded a second image... to another thread, but my first image turned into the second image. :eek: and made no sense on the first thread.

so *sigh* I redid the image for that thread so it would make sense and all was well until I uploaded a 3rd image to the gallery that overrode the previous 2 and made all three the same photo.

so then I started deleting all the images and I am confused and sad :sadcheer:

The easiest way to put a pic from your comp into a post is to use the manage attachments button that is near the bottom of the page when you are creating a post:

pic.jpg

You click that and then upload the pic(s).
Then you click the little paper clip at the top and you can insert the pic into your post. If you don't click the paper clip I think it just puts all the pics at the bottom of the post.

If that is not what you're trying to do, then hopefully someone else will help :)

There was an hiccup with linking to the gallery but I forget what exactly it was. I think it had to do with selecting the correct hyperlink but it's been years.

I hope telling you to select the Direct Link Code, as opposed to any right clicking shennanigans) is the correct action.

Also, you don't necessarily have to use the gallery to upload pictures for the :ff:. You can use the Attach Files functionality in the reply box as slim pointed out.

Oh duh! of course - I didn't notice the damn paperclippy.

Much more efficient than uploading to the gallery and linking.

I rarely bother with the gallery (since Crumb said it wasn't cool).

Attachments per post are quick and easy, although they are always shown as thumbnails (and I like my attachments big :bunnythrust:), and they don't show up if someone quotes your post.

I tend to use external hosting sites like photobucket or imgur (but every single one of those is crap in one way or another).
