That use of the quotation marks works waaay better than using the + sign.

Has the method for posting pix changed? When I tried to copy and paste a pic between the "img" brackets nothing appears. Then i tried the "choose file" option which I thought might work for pix, but I just get an error msg saying the webpage, link or whatever is unavail.

No, nothing has changed in that regard.

Post the url for where you have the photo stored and let's see what we're working with.

Oops...forgot....maximum size is 800 px wide.

Why is the print and headers now blue?
there is no nice picture at the top of the page either.

I just responded to a private message and now I am blue.

Wow, that took me a few minutes to figure out. Then I remembered the part about answering a pm.

That's a "thing" that I hope gets fixed soon.

When you have a pm notification, don't click on the link at the top of the page.

Scroll down a bit and click on the second link to your pm inbox, and you'll stay here, on the "regular" forum site.

OK.. right now I am feeling like Lucy with the gobloots. I have not even seen a Boo Shoo Bird.

You are blue too Barbara.

:lol:

Just close the window and re-open CCR through your regular link. That should get you back to the land of normal colour and pretty pictures.

:wink:

I'm right over here!!! By that tree, y'know, the one with branches an' stuff.

Thx Barbara. I think my pic was too big. I hadn't posted it anywhere on the web. Anyway I reduced the size and it worked.(I had kept reducing the size but somehow the changes didn't register)

I'm trying to use that Img thingy to post photos to accompany my Halfway Lake PP post for Doug.
The photos (800 by 600) are on my home computer.
Img requires a url.
What next?

Stuff the Photos into CCR's Gallery. Once there (B's approval required), display the image and right-click on it to "copy image location". Voila, you got the url!

Thanks Erhard!
Got the three files posted in the Gallery.
One is, as best I can see, located at
http://gallery.myccr.com/displayimage.p ... t=-3&pos=2

When I tried to add the image to my post though, using

with
http://gallery.myccr.com/displayimage.p ... t=-3&pos=2
[/img]
inserted, I got the message
It was not possible to determine the dimensions of the image.
Hmmm.

Ok, let's sort this out.

1.) Allan's uploads don't require approval.

2.) To get the photo hotlinked, you need to go the thumbnail, click on it, and that brings up the full-size photo.

Right-click on the full-size photo to get its url. That's the url you surround with the img tags.

thumbnail:
http://gallery.myccr.com/displayimage.p ... at=0&pos=0

full-size:
http://gallery.myccr.com/albums/userpic ... 210043.jpg

full-size hotlinking:
Image

coding for the hotlinking of the full-size hotlinking:
Code:
[img]http://gallery.myccr.com/albums/userpics/11045/P7210043.jpg[/img]


If you're getting a message that the system "can't determine the size", then the image is too large and needs to be reduced. Why it doesn't just say it's too large, I have no idea.

How come Alan gets to enter photos without approval and I am told I need it?!!!
To be fair then, you should allow Alan only to post pictures that big:

Erhard, go sit in the corner. :tsk:

I forgot to add....Allan, you can edit your original post to insert the photos where you want them to appear.
