Dec 2011 New way to add pictures.
« on: December 31, 2011, 10:22:10 AM »
I have not been able to figure out why attachments are not working, so I have set up another way to add pictures which works.

I will be adding screen shots soon.

Sunshine :-)

First of all you need to have the picture you want to use saved online. Ouch Too now has its own Gallery, click on this link to see it,
http://ouchtoo.org/coppermine/index.php

We will do pictures first.

Click on the link and then click on the album you want to use. You dont have to register to use the Gallery but you can if you want to.

First of all you need to pick an album and upload the picture to that album.
I clicked on the Avatars Album and got this screen.



I clicked on upload and then got this screen.



I clicked on Browse and chose the folder the image was in in my computer, I then clicked on the picture I wanted to chose it and then clicked on Open.



The file location has been added and so I click on upload file.



The file has been successfully added.



 I then right click to get a menu and click on View Image Info. (please not that for bigger pictures you will need left click on the smaller image so the larger image loads in another screen and then right click to get Image information)



Which gives me this screen. I copy the information to the right of the word location.



I then go to the reply box I have open in Ouch Too. I click on the picture icon above :-) and this inserts [img ]http://into the message. I then paste the information I had copied and it goes inbetween the  ] [ symbols.

It does look more complicated than it actually is.

I used a slightly different method..once the pic was unloaded and in an album I clicked on it the clicked and copy pasted the url to here.. put the img brackets round it via the insert image button on here and hey presto .. I use chrome as my browser which may make it a bit different to those using other browsers.

Me trying it out, Sunshine. On 'Preview', I get just a white question mark in a blue box, with lines around it, but I'm going to try a 'Post' to see if that gives the actual picture...


A.
(And 1 minute later, no it doesn't, make any difference when I post that is - still comes up as that question mark. It might have something to do with me using a Mac rather than a PC, but everything else you said to do seems okay. Never mind, it isn't that important).

I uploaded a second pic of the same image, but smaller, so now there are 2 in the 'General' album...

http://ouchtoo.org/coppermine/displayimage.php?pid=69
and

http://ouchtoo.org/coppermine/displayimage.php?pid=68

but neither of them come up on Preview - I still just get the question mark in the box.

Any ideas?


Allen.

Allen,

When I replied about this on the other thread I did not realise you were using a Mac. If you try the options I gave and the problem persists let me know because I can as Mr Sunshine if he knows how to fix it.
