Forum Code - (How to link back to something).


Recommended Posts

We can no longer use url code to post images on this forum.

 

1.  If you save your image to postimages.org then you can use the Direct Link.  But make sure your image is not bigger than 600 x  800.

 

2. If you want to post a clickable thumb, save your image on Imgur, copy the last 7 digits of the code, go to the black square with the green dot, in the tool bar of

     this editor, and add the code to the box which opens up.

Hi @ardneh  I assume you are referring to say, Gradient Mapping link.  Go to the Gradient Mapping page and copy the URL. Whatever thread you are posting to, type Gradient Mapping, highlight it with mouse cursor and select the 'Link' button (looks like a chain link), paste the URL in the space provided and click okay. That makes Gradient Mapping 'clickable' and will take the user to that page.

 

For the user names, type the '@' symbol and a drop-down menu will appear. Choose the name from the list.

Okay, clickable thumb works, but doesn't work in preview.

Also, no option to add clickable thumb in an edit.

 

So, how to edit in these as is done in the Pictorium?

 

Also, clickable thumbs using postimage or imgbox, etc?

Automatic thumbnails? Not postimage - their URL structure requires two pieces of information.

 

Imgbox might be possible. They appear to use an eight-character code....Uh, nope. Sorry. They use a changing folder structure in the URL

 

		<a href="/BKvaF07L"><img alt="Bkvaf07l b" src="https://thumbs2.imgbox.com/b6/d3/BKvaF07L_b.png" /></a>
		<a href="/Ec7HX8q5"><img alt="Ec7hx8q5 b" src="https://thumbs2.imgbox.com/dc/fe/Ec7HX8q5_b.png" /></a>

 

The workround is to find the thumbnail & paste it's url into the forum post (right click image > view image info). Add a link to the image using the full image URL.
