Pics! (Dumb question: How the heck do I get them into a post?)
« on: February 20, 2012, 01:22:32 PM »
Okie Dokie...  Dumb Question time!!

I've seen posts with pictures in them, and I've seen posts that have URL links and YouTube links.  The latter two I've figured out how to do (Copy/paste), but how do I have a post with a pic inside?

Thanks!

You mean like this? :-)



You need to wrap the link to the image between IMG tags - [img]http://i44.tinypic.com/feqibr.jpg[/img]
Code: [Select]
[img]http://i44.tinypic.com/feqibr.jpg[/img]
You can also change the image's attributes and make it smaller... (or bigger, but then it's not pretty, because it pixelizes)



Code: [Select]
[img height=300]http://i44.tinypic.com/feqibr.jpg[/img]





As far as the youtube links, SMF automatically embeds the video into the page:
Kamelot - The Haunting

Code: [Select]
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I438RH1oUJc
You can also stop the embedding by wrapping the link in a noembed tag - [noembed]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I438RH1oUJc[/noembed]
[noembed][/noembed]

That way you can also link to the video with a different text:
[noembed]Kamelot feat. Simone Simmons of Epica - The Haunting (Somewhere in Time)[/noembed]

[noembed][url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I438RH1oUJc]Kamelot feat. Simone Simmons of Epica - The Haunting (Somewhere in Time)[/url][/noembed]

Be sure that you're linking to an actual image (not a web page) and watch out for sites with anti-hotlinking rules.  A really safe way to get around that is to copy the pic to your system, and then upload it to an image hosting site (Imageshack and Photobucket are good for 'safe for work' images, and you can use the Elliquiy wiki to host NSFW images).

Woot!  You can also resize big pictures by specifying the width in the front tag:

Code: [Select]
[img width=600]http://images.wikia.com/appleseed/images/5/5f/Briareos_Hecatonchires_2.jpg[/img]
would give you

I have a really stupid question but am not sure where to ask it so I will ask it here. "Are we allowed to ask other applicants waiting for approval questions?"

Good. Now only to transfer it to some free image hosting service. Like Oni says, Photobucket and Imageshack are all good, personally I like TinyPic.

Hotlinking is a very bad netiquette as it takes precious traffic from the site owners (such as the Wiki) and for that reason many sites block it. ;)

I have a really stupid question but am not sure where to ask it so I will ask it here. "Are we allowed to ask other applicants waiting for approval questions?"
Absolutely, Orchid.

Just make sure you make yourself familiar with the Introduction Thread and Approval Policy sticky in the Intros and go ahead. Knock yourself out. ;)

I have a game idea but dont know if I can make a thread for it. Am I allowed to make a new thread for a game? also I have an idea for a role play but it has some violence in it is there any one i could send the first post to have it read and let me know if its okay to use in the non-adult-role play area?

Hi Orchid

Sure, you can start a non-adult thread if you like. Remember that all the public areas are PG-13, so you could get as violent as, say, an Indiana Jones movie.

Unapproved members can't send messages.

Not entirely sure of where to ask this so again i will ask here. Is there a place on here where I can blow off some steam and just rant?

Since this is a public board, Orchid and "What happens in the private parts of E, stays on E," I'll PM the options to you. ;)

There are several online photo editors that you can use to resize a pic.  Or you can use your paint program on your computer to do the same. 

I use lunapic.com quite a lot for photo editing.
