No really about posting fotos more I cant see them - even my own. What I get is a sign telling me I am not authorised to view.... Help out a poor luddite but for obvious reasons keep it simple :?

Hi Bill,

I couldn't see any reason why you cannot see photos. :? I have reset all your permissions anyway, so hopefully it will now work for you. :D Please make sure you are logged in, as guests are unable to see photos on our forum.

Merry Christmas and happy new year!
Mick

You need to be logged in to see photos on the new forum. If you are logged in and still get the warning it must mean everyone has made you a 'Foe' and barred you from seeing their photos. I'm sure everyone hasn't done that, the newbies hardly know you... :lol: ;)

If this isn't the reason I'm sure it will be a quick fix in the 'user control panel' let me know if you were logged in when trying to view.

Hope it's getting cold enough for you now. ;)

I must have a lot of 'foes' including me as I cant even see my own. Its probably something I've done at my end and unless my 5 year old grandson visits my chances of fixing the problem are next to zero :cry:

Lets check first things first.

Click on 'User Control Panel' in the grey bar under the MMO logo.

Click on the 'Board Preferences' tab.

Then 'Edit Display Options'

Make sure 'Display images within posts:' is ticked 'Yes'. All the other options are ticked 'Yes' on mine too.

See if this helps. ;)

Just a quick question,
Is there a way to upload a picture to a gallery and then use the picture in the gallery within a post?
I couldn't see an obvious way as when I uploaded a picture and then wrote a post when I wanted to add a picture I had to upload it again!

Am I missing something obvious?

John.

I just posted this photo using the "Image BBCode" "album code" given under the photo.

Works if it's not your photo too:

439

Give it a go. ;)

Cheers Al, just had a play, oddly the immage is smaller (this time) if I use the url image bbcode than when I use just the album tag!

Either way that is something else explained!

That is because you used the code for the thumbnail pic instead of the full sized one. :roll: ;) :lol: :lol:

Clicking on the thumbnail version will open it out to full size in a new window.

The other version, when clicked, will open the photo album in the same window. FYI.

Another piece of information noted, thanks.
I would hate to meet the person who has thumbs that size!

Hi, I cannot upload photos anymore, I uploaded some pics a few weeks ago but when I tried last night it doesn't work. It may very well be my ineptness! I clicked on browse file, selected the photo to upload and that's as far as I can get. Any ideas please as I would like to add photos so other folk can aid with advice more easily.
Kind regards
Richy
