This topic is for asking me questions or making comments regarding my website. General chat regarding "ancient sites" that is not related to my web site should go into the "Ancient Sites" topic.

Okay, photos... The main thing to realise is that you can't actually "store" the photo on this forum - you need to store it somewhere else where it can be accessed online.

There are several online photo sharing sites around, I use Flickr as it's easy to use and gives you a pretty good deal for free. (or if you have some web space somewhere you can just upload the photos to your webspace).

So, you have yourself a Flickr account, and you've uploaded some photos to it. If you click to view an individual photo, you should see a toolbar just at the top of the image with things like "add note, send to group, add to set". Click on "all sizes" and then select the size of the image you want to display in the forum.  All I would ask is not to go above 600 or 700 pixels wide so that most people can view the image without scrolling left to right.

Now, roll down below the image and you should see a url for the photo, starting "https://static.flickr.com". Copy this URL to your clipboard (hightlight it and press control-c or highlight it, right click and select copy).

Now, while you're composing your message on the forum you'll see a row of buttons at the top of the text window. Click on "Img" and it will insert some code into your text ".

Carry on writing your message, do a preview before you submit it and you should see a photo in your image if you did it all right. Something like this :-



There is a small entry in the FAQ for phpBB covering the posting of images here.

Ah good, I'm certainly looking forward to seeing some from you. If you're using your own webspace then all you have to do is to substitute the URL of the image from your website in the above - so that it appears between those "[img]" tags.

If you get stuck when you come to do it then just shout Cheesy

Well, if I was an alien landing my craft on this planet then I think I would rather park it somewhere I didn't have to climb up and down a 130 foot hill all the time to get and out Wink

Anything's possible I guess - and will we ever actually know the truth? That's what makes all these places so darned interesting.
