How to post up pictures and videos on BARF

Heya Newbies to BARF,

to !!

I thought this post might come in handy to Y'ALL as you join BARF cuz it took me some trial and error to figure out how to do this, especially the 2nd way. And I stickied this thread to the top so that it'll be nice & handy to you as we always say on BARF : " Pics or it doesn't exist or it didn't happen !"

We ask you guys & gals to post pics of your ride as you join the forum, so...


* To post up a pic / photos on BARF -- Two ways:

1) Embed pictures in a post <<< Budman's favorite way cuz this will allow the picture you're posting to live .... forever on BARF

In edit mode, click 'advanced mode' (NOT quick reply) at the bottom of the screen, "additional options", 2nd function: "attach files" >> manage attachments : you can attach LOWER res (smaller size) .JPEG files. You might need to use "Paint" or other Graphics Editors to reduced the size ( 100% >> xx% ). Max Filesize is 250KB. Up to five pics CAN be attach at once. I think one can attach more than 5 pics to a post this way by repeating this 'manage attachments' more than once, 'til the max attachment size allowed would be reached.

2) Use a host site to insert pics into your post: (your pic might "die" eventually >> see note below)

Upload your pictures to a host website such as 'Flicker', 'Photobucket', 'Imgur', etc. and use (the little square ICON with a moutain, yellow sky and tiny sun on top of this editing window.

For 'Flicker', if you just copy the whole embedded in the whole https link... from "BB" (bulletin board) >>> and change the letter "s/z " (right after the "_") to "b" (to make the pic a bit bigger) >>> it will do the trick : nice and easy !! Make sure you don't use TOO BIG of a pic to mess up the pos t >>> pic of slightly smaller than or about one screen width is a good size.

FYI: You can ONLY include 20 pictures max per post when you use this method to post pics in ONE POST !

NOTE: This method attach awesome pics to a post HOWEVER, if and when your account(s) on these host sites no longer exist or go dead, all there will be left is a littlle sad tiny empty blob in the post where your picture(s) used to be.

SOoooo it might be a bit more work, but maybe use both ways to attach pics so that we can keep the memories on BARF... forevah !

* HELP : One easy and dirty way to learn is... to click 'Quote' on any post by other BARFers and learn HOW & WHAT they did to attach or use a host site to post pictures.

Some help for ya >> Look at this thread : One word essays.... Include a pic.



* To post up a vid / video on BARF under Moto Photos & Videos if it's Moto related... or anywhere : General, da SINK (Kitchen Sink),... for that matter... :

Click on the link below :

Moto Photos & Videos <<< It's the 5th sub forum under Moto from the BARF Main Menu

Use : [YouTube] ..... [/YouTube ] to embed your link !! <<<<< NO spaces between the square brackets and the words YouTube & /YouTube

HELP : One quick & dirty way to see how something is done is to click the "QUOTE" button at the bottom right of any post that has a YouTube video embedded already !


Let me know what works BEST for you !! I welcome feedback >> I can & will edit this post to improve it... !


Don't hesitate to ask questions in the forum or via PM ( private message ).

Cheers, see ya out there SAFE with a and

I wrote this up for my father on how to post pictures using Facebook and GoogleChrome. Thought I would share for others as well...

First load your pictures to facebook.

When they are done you will be viewing the folder containing all the images you just uploaded.



Click on the first image and it will come to the front of the screen.


Right click on the image and with google chrome, you will be given an option to copy image url




When you are ready to put in a picture click on the yellow box with mountains at the top of the message box.



This box pops up





Ctrl V or Paste the URL you just copied from Facebook into the box that popped up. and click OK. It will automatically insert it into your post with the HTML codes so it shows as a picture on your post and not a URL. with facebook it will be quite large and look like gibberish.



Repeat the process for each one. Same thing goes if you are grabbing an image from a website, you should be able to right click, copy the image URL, paste it into that pop up box, and click ok.

You can post one or more pic(s) embedded in the body of a post using BARF built in Manage Attachments or put the link to your favorite pictures host site..... but BARF is not bookface .

You CAN post a pic as your avatar <====> profile pic , right ?

Post #2 HERE has basic avatar (profile pic) instructions.

Just keep it PG rated, lol - your face and/or bike is a popular choice.

OK... Is this even still an option.
I do not have the "Additional Options" nor "Manage Attachments" when I go to advanced.

They used to be there but no longer appear to be available. (At least where I am trying to add photo's)

Has barf gone to all hyperlinks for picture embedding?

I want to add some map pictures to the Weaverville rally sub forum but can no longer determine how w/o linking to a photo sharing site (which I DO NOT use).

IOW...
- Where did the "Manage Attachments" go under "Advanced"?
- Is it not available in "all" sub forums?

TIA for your replys.

Shows up fine for me (see attachment below).

If a particular subforum does not allow attachments (not sure why one would... maybe because rally forums are temporary?), you can always start a thread in the test board, attach images there, and link them in your actual thread. For example, here's a kitty from a recent test board post.
