Go To Top Of PageHow do I add images to my posts?

To place an image in your post, all you need to do when editing your post is find the image upload button, pictured below.
There it is, the button furthest right on the format toolbar.
If you're using the Quick Reply feature at the bottom of each topic, you can find the button next to the word "Message" in the upper left, as depicted.
In Quick Reply, the button is next to the word Message in the upper left.
After clicking the button, a small window will pop up. (Pop-ups must be allowed for our site, or you must allow this pop-up.) Browse your computer for the image you wish to upload, select it, and click upload.

That's it! There stands your image, all bright and shiny. Well, alright, the code will be there now anyway, and if you preview your post, you can see the images as well.

NOTE: The rest of this section is for those of you who may need to (or want to) place images manually.

First you'll need the URL for your image (the place it can be found on the web; if you paste the URL into the address bar of your browser, the browser should show your picture). Paste your image's URL into your post, then enclose it with one of the following Forum Code tags:

  • [img] and [/img]
  • [img=right] and [/img=right] (to align the image to the right)
  • [img=left] and [/img=left] (to align the image to the left)

When it's finished, it should look like this:

If you want to make your picture link to somewhere, it should look like this:

If you copy the image link from other image hosting services, use the “Forum” or “BBCode”. Those use the standard BBCode that you'll need. However, Snitz can't read the standard code for the [URL] tag. So, if you want to use other imaging hosting websites, make sure your code looks just like either example given above. The text between the opening image tag [IMG] and the closing image tag [/IMG] should be filled in with your image's specific location and filename; and if you're linking your image to somewhere else, the link within the [URL] tag, after the =, should have quotation marks around it. If you want Snitz to actually display everything correctly, you may have to add them manually. If you don't, the URL will show up and make your post look all weird, even though your image will still show up.

If there are issues with your images showing up on the forum, first edit your post to check to make sure the [IMG] code is correct. Then make sure your photos are still available on the web. There may be temporary connection issues. If everything looks all hunky-dory, please let us know and we'll see what we can see.
