    Attach Photos to Trip Report; HELP!

    Hello;
    I am new, and trying to complete a trip report. I have tried for two days trying to attach pictures to a trip report, and am completely frustrated. I am using photo bucket. I uploaded the picture. I then copied the IMG code. I hit the "Insert Image" icon. I paste the IMG code. Then, nothing happens. No picture, no nohing.
    Please help!

    Thanks in advance.

    Re: How to post picture?

    URL is the location that your photos are "stored" on the internet. Most people like www.photobucket.com, I use www.webshots.com but photobucket is the most popular and user friendly. You need to upload the photos to a photo hosting website, like the ones mentioned and under your uploaded photos it will give you the URL. Photobucket is nice enough to even add the code for you, but you can use either one.

    Here is a tutorial for you. (It might be wise to have two windows open at the same time for this.)

    1. Create a photobucket account.
    2. Upload your photos.
    3. Once the photo is uploaded to photobucket, click the "Direct Link" box and copy the photo's url.
    4. In a new thread reply, click "Insert Image"
    5. Right click in the empty box and then click "Paste"
    6. Click OK.

    It should automatically put the code into the post.

    If you need help with the uploading photos part, I can help you there as well.

    Good Luck!

    how do i post photos

    Hi everyone -

    Can someone help me - I just joined micechat gold to be able to post photos - I'm excited to do so.

    BUT, first of all, how do I post pictures?

    I've tried "attaching" but my uploads always fail. Do you all have to resize all your pics before you post them?

    Heeeelp!!

    Well this is going to get moved but before that happens (nothing against MC Gold) but I hope you didn't join that to post photos. It's rather simple. If you have them uploaded onto a site, you could just link them off from there using "insert image" icon (Has a mountain and a little sun) and that's free.

    Now, I'll turn that little mouse's dream into a nightmare Fantasmic!

    Hi airick75,
    Just set up an account at www.photobucket.com and load your picks there. Then copy the IMG Code and paste in your posts.

    Upload your pictures to a site like photobucket or tinypic.
    Use the "img" code and post it into a post or your signature.
    Most times, the host site will have HTML, IMG and direct links...choose the one that says "IMG Code for Forums & Message Boards" copy & paste.

    Attachments are only available to MiceChat Gold members.

    Before pictures can be displayed on MiceChat they have to be "hosted" on a picture hosting website such as photobucket, Flikr, Tinypic etc, that allows linking to pictures.

    Once the pictures have been uploaded to a photo hosting site, then you have to use VBulletin board code to post them. Photobucket is one of the easier sites to use for this because they are free and already have the image line in the proper code for use on the board. You cannot use HTML code on MiceChat, it has to be the IMG code.

    For example, if you use Photobucket you would copy and past the IMG code for the pic as shown below:

    Hey Pengy!

    As much as I have used Photobucket, I never noticed that the IMG code was available. I have always used the IMG button on the VB toolbar. That is going to save me a lot of time. Thanks for the tip!

    OT: Is that photo from the Oceanside pier?

    How do you post pictures in a thread?

    I clicked on the insert image icon and then added the URL to the flickr page here the photo is hosted but it only shows as a red X. Please let me know what I am doing wrong. ~Thank you.

    Re: How do you post pictures in a thread?

    Hey, double check the picture's url - if you're linkngi from the wrong page, the extension will be incorrect - like the picture will be picture.jpgxy779o instead of picture.jpg. If you link it from the photo's page, the extension should be fine and it should post.
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    Posting Photos

    Hi all
    I really enjoy the picture posts on this forum, and since I am taking a trip to DL in May I thought I might try to post some picks of my own.
    I am a novice when it comes to computers, so not really sure how to do this.
    How are the pictures added to posts? I just created a flickr account. Is this what people use?
    Thanks for any help
