Welcome! This is a basic step-by-step tutorial (plus screenshots!) of how to upload your image to the Elluiki (Elliquiy's Wiki), then embed the image into a post here on Elliquiy's forums.Now, this tutorial assumes three things:
o1: That you are using Google Chrome.
o2: That you know where to find the wiki; and
o3: That you know how to embed images into your posts.I am using Google Chrome for this tutorial
. If you are using another browser, your browser might look different and your right-click menu options might be worded differently. You should still be able to figure out what you should click, regardless.A link to the Wiki can be found in the top navigation menu
of every page in the forums, between Players
and Dice Bot
. This is the same menu where you can also find the link to the systemized roleplaying preferences and Elliquiy's home page (as opposed to the forum index). Link is also here for ease of access: http://elliquiy.com/wiki/To embed images
, you can refer to my other tutorial, Basic BBCode: Using the Rich Text Editor
. When you are replying to a thread or starting a new topic, your text editor is below the rich text editor, which looks like this:
If you click the first icon,
, in group 4, that will automatically insert image tags into your post, like so:
After that, you simply paste the direct link to your image
between the image tags. The direct link usually looks something like this, starting with elliquiy's URL and ending with the file type (*.gif, *.jpg, *.png).
Pasting can be done by (right-click » paste) or (Ctrl+V or Mac equivalent). You can also manually type out the tags without clicking on the button in the rich text editor. When you post, your image will be embedded into your post.
Now, onto the tutorial!
