Rock Climbing Photo: Racked and loaded... name that splitter behind me?...
I've added a small shortcut to place mountainproject.com images within forum posts.

Simply insert < img=ID# >, where ID# is the photo id number that you wish to place in the forum post.

The id# is available next to the dimensions on each photo page, which is located right below the photo.

Hope this helps.

Andy

What if it isn't a mountainproject photo?

I read the text formatting option box. But, I am not really understanding.

If I take a photo from my computer, how do I put that in between the thing? I can't copy and paste it. I don't know how to assign it a "code thing."

I really feel like I am trying to learn how to ride a bike here. Totally helpless. It is kind of ruining my argumentative flow. Any help?

Rock Climbing Photo: Green Monster  Photo by Thomas Holmes.
John, there are a couple of ways to post the photo in a forum message.

Scenarios:

1. The image is on your computer and you don't mind uploading it to MountainProject.

2. The image is somewhere else on the Internet and you want to link to it (on a photo sharing site or something).

In the case of Scenario 1, create a photo album under your personal page. Since I see you already have a photo album, you already know how to do that. Then enter <img=id_number> in your message, and it will show up as follows:

Rock Climbing Photo: my better side...
my better side...


The above is displayed via <img=105787971> in this post message.

In the case of Scenario 2, enter the following in your forum post:

<img=photo_URL>

I'll use an image from Black Diamond’s web site and I'll use a URL to reference it. Note that any web URL that points to a photo should work, but that it is often considered bad net etiquette to directly display a photo from another site since it "steals" bandwidth from that site without the benefit of actually sending a user there to watch advertising or whatever. I’ll hope BD doesn’t mind in this instance since of course all of the ice climbers on this site will immediately rush over to BD’s site to check it out since the photo is so cool :-)

This is the URL of the photo:

http://www.bdel.com/images/homepage/main_image_ice.jpg

This is the photo:



The above is displayed using the following in the message:

Thanks everyone, except G... how offensive!

So, if I am understanding all of you correctly, then you can only put an image onto a forum if it has already been posted on the web somewhere? Is there a way to take a picture from iphoto or my pictures and directly attach it to a forum post? Just wondering.

Correct.

Not currently. You need to upload it to this site at the very least.
