Default "How to" insert an image into a post or PM...

HDForums is using a new photo uploader. Here's a short "How to" insert an image into a post:


1. Click the Insert Image button..



Now the "Upload Images" screen opens:



2. This screen gives you 4 options:
a. Drag and drop pictures from your computer
b. Add an image from your Personal Album
c. Select an image by browsing to an image file on your computer
d. Paste a "direct link" picture URL from an online Photo Album like Photobucket
Pick an option, select the image and the Upload message comes up:



3. Once the "Upload Images" screen shows your image, click "Insert" and the image will be inserted into your post.

Great write up. Thank you. I've been able to do that successfully from my computer, however, I'm wondering if there is a way to do it from my Samsung "android" smart phone? Any help would be appreciated -thank you.

Default How to attach picture to reply using phone based web!

Ok, Im going to attempt to help others out with this.
Remember, this may very from device to device. I am running HDF on an Samsung android device.
I want to help as much as I can, feel free to ask what you may, if I dont know how to answer your question, at least I can try =)

Step 1
Assuming you are already at your USERCP home page
Make sure you are in the mobile version by going to the bottom left of your screen and hitting the following
*DROP DOWN BUTTON*




THEN MAKE SURE "MOBILE ONE" IS SELECTED



Once your in, go to the posting of your choice and.....

....HIT REPLY




THEN THE PICTURE ATTACHMENT BUTTON



AT THIS POINT YOU SHOULD BE AT A SCREEN LIKE THIS, HIT MY DEVICE (BECAUSE YOU WILL BE ATTACHING PICS FROM YOUR DEVICE)



DEPENDING ON YOUR DEVICE YOU WILL BE ASKED TO POINT WHERE YOU WANT TO GET THE PICTURES FROM



AFTER YOU HAVE SELECTED THE PICTURE OF YOUR CHOICE (FOR INSTRUCTIONAL PURPOSES, I CHOSE MY 07 FXD )
NOW HIT INSERT




AND THATS IT, THE LINK TO YOUR PICTURE SHOULD BE SHOWN ON YOUR REPLY BOX.

Sorry for the long post, enjoy a picture of my FXD

Default Done all of the set up procedures, no go...

I use to be able to post pictures with no problem until recently. I have done all of the editor setup procedures, they are the same as when I was able to upload pictures with no problem.
I do the picture upload and press the "Insert" button but nothing happens on the "Reply to thread" window.
What else could be the matter?


Windows 7 Op system.

I have no problem inserting pics into a post on the traditional or mobile view. But I can't insert into PMs, I get this message:


I believe my settings are correct:

I have seen this message way too often. There is a workaround however it does involve more steps.

-In your control panel go to your album (whichever album you want your photo in)

-Manually upload your photo that you are wanting to send

-Hit the "SHARE" button and then "COPY" to copy the URL link

-Paste URL link in the popup window when HDF is asking for it

Bada bing bada boom.

You got yourself a picture in your message!

I have the same issue. Picture used to load fine, now nothing. I also use Windows. Not 7, but I have the version previous to the new one. Will updating to, Windows 10 help?

Any fix for the PM issue? It isn't worth all the URL shenanigans.
