[TUT] How To Post Pictures & Videos On Forums

Post by Lioth on Mon Mar 04, 2013 1:19 pm

Hi to all, this issue seems to come up from time-to-time, and it's not really explained in the FAQ either, so I understand it can be sometimes difficult to do for a new member, specially if that same member is generally new to online forums.

So lets see a couple of ways that you can share your awesome photos and videos here.

Posting pictures

Method 1 : Using external hosting service

If you have your pictures already uploaded to an external hosting service, such as Photobucket or Imageshack, the process is simple:

Step 1:

Press the "Image" button in the format bar and insert the URL of your image:

Step 2:

Then, confirm with OK, and your image URL will be added to the post, in IMG tags:

alternatively, you may include the image tags manually in the following format:

[IMG*] image url [/IMG*] (Removing *)

Method 2 : Uploading pictures to ImgServ hosti within the forum

If you do not wish to use an external host, as explained in the previous method, you may upload your pictures directly within your post. This method uses the Servimg host and does not require you to have a registration in an external site.

Step 1:

Press the "Host an image" button in the format bar and choose the image you want to upload:

Step 2:

Confirm by pressing "Host it"

Step 3:

You will see a screen where you can copy the several URLs for your image.
-Press the copy button for the URL in the middle, and copy it by hitting control + C on your keyboard.
-Press upload to confirm

Step 4:

Paste the copied code into your post.

Posting Youtube Videos

Method 1 : Using the video button

Step 1:

Press the "Video" button in the format bar and insert the url (as seen on address bar) of your youtube video:

Step 2:

Confirm with OK and the video will be added to your post:

Method 2 : Copying the url from youtube

Step 1:

Copy the code for the "Embedded" video in youtube. You may also select the size you wish the video to be displayed in:

Step 2:

Paste the code in your post to share video:

Hope that this was useful for you.
