There's a fancy new feature added to the forum.

Thanks to a plugin from Postimage, you can now upload pictures as part of your post!

Just below the window where you enter your message, you'll find a a blue P to "Add image to post"

Image

Click on that and a new window will open asking you to choose images to upload.

Image

Image

Image


Magically, after you select the files and click "Open" the links to the images are inserted into your message!

Try it, you'll like it!

It works on mobile devices too!

Although there is some automatic resizing in the forum post, folks can click on the image to see the full size version and download it if they wish.

How do I upgrade my account to allow 3rd party hosting?

Just relinking things is still giving me this.

It was fine until seriously about 2 hours ago. I had made no changes to anything

If you're talking about the message from Photobucket, it's a policy change they've made on their side. You have to pay them $399 per year to allow third party hosting. Hundreds of folks from the Legion have been affected by this policy change, and thousands of threads have lost valuable information from the pictures disappearing.

There's a free option through Postimage in our forum. Below the box where you type in your message, there's a blue square with a P in it. Click it, upload a photo, and it will appear a little smaller in your posting. It's an anonymous upload, so you don't have control over the image once it's posted.

However, it's free, and you can manage your photos if you setup an account with them.

Using Flickr how do I make my avatar again? I am tired of having that Stormtrooper to the left of me.

Click on your username on the left side in any of your posts

Or click the generic person icon on the top right below the search bar, and select "Profile"

Image

This will open your "Profile"

Click "Edit Avatar" and upload your new image or point to the URL on Flickr

Image

Click "Submit" and you should have your new avatar displayed :cheers1

I've turned on the option to upload avatars directly to the OLGa board.

Now you don't have to wrestle with Flickr URLs!
