don't worry about it bro...we all gotta learn these things somehow
(it's not like it's possible to know everything right from the start)





when you're using the actual reply feature

Just to the right of the little Instant Smileys are is a section labled 'Instant UBB Code' that has all sorts of useful stuff - URL, E-mail, Polls, Bold, Italics, Quotes, and you guessed it ---> Image (just click on that and a pop-up should appear that asks for the image URL...type it in and the image will show up in your post.
~{EXAMPLE}~ I have a dancing Gir animated gif that I uploaded to the shroomery...if I ever want to use it in one of my posts all I gotta do is go to my picture folder and find the pic, then copy over the URL for that particular image into my post using the Image tag in the Instant UBB Code are...which will look something like this --->  [image*]http://www.shroomery.org/forums/files/090102-30/76647-60467-gif_dancinggir.gif[/image*] (without the *s) in writting...and like this in my post itself:





using image tags with quick reply

You're basically going to use the same exact procedure when you're using Quick Reply...the only difference is that you won't have a handy little Image tag pop-up to work with, so you're going to have to actually type it out by hand - which isn't a big deal seeing as all that means is that you're going to have to place [image*] in front of the actual image URL and [/image*] just behind it (again - without the *s) Once again - you come up with the same results:





and finally...just in case there's any confusion as to what I mean by an image URL, or perhaps if you're just curious how to upload a pic to the shroomery's own server - I'm gonna cover that real quick



pictures - and all you need to know about em

A picture URL is just the path that a computer uses to find the location of a picture on any given computer (just as a regular URL sends your browser to a website) In the above dancing Gir examples, the actual URL would be: (meaning that if you clicked on that link it would take you to a blank page with just that particular gif on it) and this will work for pretty much any pic you find on any website out there (just right-click any random pic on any random page and go to properties and it'll typically give you a URL for where the pic's located) This means that uploading a pic to the severs here isn't usually neccessary to be able to use it in a post...I say usually because some websites (especially places that have free hosting) have a problem with leeching, so instead of the original pic being linked you wind up with some generic "don't take our shit" pic...kinda like this one right here:



This is where the upload feature comes into play...
At the top of the page you'll see a link to My Home - click it
In the bottom half of that screen will be an area called 'Main Configuration'
To the right you'll see three little Edit links...click on the top one
(this will take you to your personal information section - password, e-mail, etc...)
Near the bottom of the page is a box for your avatar URL (just above the three Yes/No questions)
Click on the little link that sez 'upload one here' and you wind up at your upload area
Browse your hard drive for a pic...click on the Upload button - and that's that
Now you can just View a thumbnail list of your pictures any time you want to see your picture folders
Click on any thumbnail from there an you've got your picture URL

It's as easy as that  :grin:














[ONE QUICK DISCLAIMER] I'm not trying to insult anyone's intelligence here...I just broke it all down into the simplest terms for anyone that might possibly be fuzzy about any of the different steps along the way (cause I know damn well it took me a good month or so before I even knew we could upload pics here...and I assume if there's anyone out there that's just barely gotten an account themselves - this sort of information might be helpful to them) So if something seems a bit insulting to you (in a "I'm not a complete freakin idiot" kinda way) just assume that that information is more directed towards people who aren't quite as well informed as you are.


Anwho -

I hope that helps...





~Peace~

Or, even worse,


you could leech an image from something awful.


Their anti-leech graphics are blinding.
