Frequently Asked Question: How do I post pictures on this forum?


Posting pictures into threads on the TGO forum is easier than you might expect, however we do not currently allow our members to upload pictures directly to threads or posts.

The first thing that you will need to do is upload your photos to a server on the Internet. Many Internet Service Providers give each customer their own private web space to host pictures and such, so you might want to go that route. Another option that we know works very well here is to set up a free account with Photobucket [link] and begin uploading your photos there. They have mountains of storage space available and their servers are uniquely configured to handle that sort of traffic, whereas ours really cannot.

Once you upload your photos to a service like Photobucket, you need to find the URL of the photo that you want to insert into your post. Photobucket makes this easy and actually includes quick links to share a photo to a web site, post it in a forum, etc. by providing you with codes to copy and paste into a message here on TNJeeps. Or you can find a photo that you want to share, right click on it inside your web browser and choose the option for "Copy Image Location" (Firefox, and similar browsers) from the resulting menu that pops up.

An example follows.
 
 

ipb_editor_howtofindimageurl.jpg

 
 

Once you have the URL copied into your computer's clip board, you can simply come back to the TGO message editor when posting a reply or a new thread, and click on the Image button in the toolbar as shown below.
 
 
 
 
 

ipb_editor_imagebutton.jpg

 

This will open up a new dialogue box where you will copy and paste the URL of the photo that you want to share. Like this...

 
 
 

ipb_editor_imageurl.jpg

 

Once you have done this, your photo will show up in the message you are posting provided you copied the URL correctly. :)

One important thing to note is that the TGO forum software expects your image URL to end in an appropriate picture file format such as .JPG or .GIF. Some photo hosting services such as Facebook use a URL structure that does not make sense to our forum software, therefore those images won't display properly. This is why we recommend Photobucket in particular, as their service has proven to be extremely reliable and easy to use.

We hope that this FAQ entry helps!
