Default Members albums

Hi, Is there any update as to when we will be able to view albums or even create new ones.....the general loading of photos to threads is also very difficult which does not help getting the forum buzzing again

Hi Sharon

Unfortunately, we're still experiencing problems with that section of the forum.

I shall speak to the technical team again about it to see if we can find a resolution, but as it was so difficult and time consuming getting the forum back to this state after experiencing the problems that we did, unfortunately I'm not able to guarantee that a fix will be possible.

Though not an ideal solution, my suggestion would be to create albums on external hosting services (such as www.flickr.com) and post links to those albums in the forum for people to see.

Even if we are able to get the Albums working once again, because we are using quite an old version of the forum, the size of images that you're able to upload is quite small, where as with an external hosting service you'd be able to upload much higher quality images.

Some photo hosting services that you may wish to look at (these are all free to use):

Google Photos

Flickr

Imgur

Photoland

I hope that helps,

Hi Su1866

Here's a quick guide on how to post an image to the forum using Flickr

1. Upload the photo to Flickr

2. Once you've done this, click on the photo in your Photostream (you can find this by clicking You > Photostream in the top left corner of the screen)

3. Near the bottom right of the screen there should be four icons, one of which is an arrow pointing to the right, and when you hover over it says "Share Photo". Click on this.

4. A pop-up box should appear. Click on BBCode.

5. Select the desired size of the image that you want to show on the forum

6. Click on the code to highlight it, then right click and select Copy

7. Come to the forum and create your post. When you want to insert the picture, paste the copied code into the section where you write your post

8. When you preview / post your image, it should then appear

Note, by default the code from Flickr includes a link to your Flickr album. You can delete this by deleting the appropriate part of the code

If you'd like to only show the image without any links, delete everything other that the [img] [/img] tags and everything within them

This is what I have done here:



I hope you find this useful
