How do I post pictures???

Post by billandkaren » Tue May 28, 2019 11:33 am

I just got back from our trip and was determined to figure out how to post some pictures. There used to be instructions but now I can't find them. Can anyone help? I know I need a flickr account but then how do I transfer from flickr to the forum? Thanks.

You have to upload your images to Flickr, imgur, or some other photo hosting site. Then you have to figure out how at that site to get the url for your image. Once you copy the url address of your image, you go into Ynet, start a new thread, and then click on the ninth icon above the text box of your post. It is a little image of a mountain with the sun above it. It will automatically generate a couple of image tags <img> and </img> but with square braces like this [ not the <>ones I typed. Place the url address of your image between these tags. Your image will then show up in your thread you just started. Repeat this process for every image you want to post.

So here's the url for an image (bicycle part) I have on Flickr https://live.staticflickr.com/4680/3949 ... dca5_b.jpg

put this mess in between the image tags <img> </img> like this: <img>https://live.staticflickr.com/4680/3949 ... b.jpg</img> only use [ ] square braces not < >, that I typed here. I had to use < > for this example, so the image url would show, and not the actual image.

Once you change the braces you get this, the actual image:

Hope that helps.
