    Too old and set in my ways, I guess....

    Would someone please splane to me how pictures are posted on the new board? Is it simply a matter of clicking the "Manage Attachments" link below, selecting the attachments and clicking send?

    How about adding text between the pictures? Same as the old board w/ img src html? How do you know what file name, etc. is used?

    Aarggghhhh!! Change is good, but I'm too stupid to figure this out on my own.

    Let me help....

    Old message board = simple, easy, logical.
    New message board = complex, difficult, illogical.

    But it sure is snazzy!

    That's it as far as my technical know-how. I'm surprised I got my avitar up....

    Hmmm. I'm pretty sure that is all I did. For the single pic, I mean. But the pic didn't show up in the preview - only when I posted furreal.

    so far...

    all of the multiple pics I've seen are hosted offline on another server i.e. their own, not mtbr. I'm still working on that one as well.

    Francis has a post in the General/Help board that may offer some insight. Scroll down a ways.

    good luck to us all,

    I know how to .....

    Make it look like this:



    Then the Second Picture...



    No magic involved... but it does take more steps than the old system...


    First... Create a post and attach all your images.. put in a pointless message like

    "placeholder for message to be added on edit"


    Then post it...

    Find the first file attached line and right-click on the link and select properties.. it will look something like this:

    http://forums.mtbr.com/attachment.php?attachmentid=380

    And the second picture would look like...

    http://forums.mtbr.com/attachment.php?attachmentid=381

    Save all these into your notepad (prefered) or write them down

    Then re-edit the message and use the Insert Picture button to add each picture where you want it (paste the url you got above into the box).

    Your message will still have the "so and so has attached the folowing files" at the bottom.

    If the image is already on the web I was successfull with (less than)img src="URL"(greater than) for multiple images in a post.

    You can use the "upload photos" link up in the top right to upload images just like old system. Copy and paste the URLs from there into the img src tags.

    I've been using ubb image tags, which go like this:

    First upload your image to a server (MTBR's or what I use [its free], imagestation.com). Then copy and paste the full url between image tags like these, leaving out the space between "[" and "img":

    [ img]http://yourimageurlhere[/img]

    Works for me, although I'm not sure it can handle the parentheses the MTBR server puts into some urls. I know it can't on other boards.

    You just need to...

    ...wait until I figure it out. Here's an avatar, inline using normal "img" html tags.



    and here's my attachment, using this url:

    http://forums.mtbr.com/attachment.ph...ntid=425&stc=1



    What I can't figure out is how to get the url before you post the post. You probably can't. You can do the post with attachments, then edit it to look the way you want, but that would be kind of a pain.

    No, you can remove the attachments after...

    ...you edit, and the "so and so has attached..." message goes away. See my post above. I made it using your method before I read your post, and removed my attachment after.

    Ken, apparently it barfs on the () brackets I had the same problem and eventually got it to work using < img src="http://blahblah/" > (without the spaces). Hope that helps you a bit.

    Good job! New Board? Cool!

    Wow, I had no idea there was a new forum tool. Very cool. Looks like a super cool Linux board, not that I would know (closet nerd).

    Need to figure out how to get my signature set up...

    The above posted with [ img] and [ /img], without spaces of course. Below, the image is posted with the < img src= version.



    I guess I didn't know that posting pics was such a pia. After learning to post multiple pics on the old board, its kinda become an easy thing to do anywhere, especailly once you learn the tagging that you need to use. I do know for sure that the [img] brackets can't use (_) in the address of the picture. Screws it up somehow or other. You get the parentheses if you load multiple copies of the pic into mtbr's server.
