Adding A Picture to A Review

I recently posted the details of a book on the review part of the site. I notice that many of the reviews have a picture of the book/film etc. but I couldn't see how to do this. Can someone help me out with this? Secondly would it be acceptable to provide a link to the publisher's website?

Hey I posted another review and I still don't know how to post a picture of the book. Any one actually care about reviews and pictures?































If you were thinking of posting 'No' don't bother.

I just went to a review that I wrote - Voices From the Summit - and hit the Edit tab. In another window I Google Imaged the title and found an image of the book cover (normally from Amazons website). I then saved the imaged by right clicking on the image and "saving image as". The image is now in My Pictures on my computer. I then opened Chockstone again in another window. I went to reply to your thread and hit the "Adding Pictures" link below the reply window. This brought up the Chockstone Upload Pictures window. I hit "Browse" and then found the image of the book in My Pictures. I hit "Upload Image" and when the image line came up, I right clicked "Copy" and then went to the window with my review and hit "Paste" at the beginning of the review.

Viola! Now there is a picture of the book

F#ck I'm good!

Hey you are good but some reviews have the picture in the top left outside the review text area. Although I do now have a picture of the cover in my review. For example compere 'Voices from the summit' with 'View from the summit' I want my picture up there in the top left.

Sorry dude. I'm not that good.

That will take someone who is a Grandmaster Supergeek and they are often reticent to share their secrets

Good luck Grasshopper.

Like Zebedee I have had trouble doing this today.

~> ended up with ...
" align="right" hspace="10" vspace="10">
and a picture with a cross in it, at top of the review.

(One stage better than Zeb but still wrong!)

The pic uploaded OK so I can drag the script line from original reply line; ~> but how to put the full script line in the 'add review slot' which only appears to take a certain number of characters?

Have since deleted the rubbish result ... and when I did so (had to find it again to delete it), the book I had added came up with the authors name listed twice, though the add media box entry was correct (ie I checked it as no double-up there).
Yes there is another book for that author, but I would have thought all/any books by the author would be listed, if a search is done on the author name, rather than separate author names as repeats?

I have been known to do that sometimes(!), however a Chockstone fix is good for the days when I can't.

I don't think the Wingello Pussy would be trolling here if he had the option of going "climbn instead" . It must be either too windy in Bleakheath or the Council have closed Bluebell, the infamous 'Tiapan Wall' of the Shire.

There is an "image" field when adding or editing media (might only be available to administrators - can't remember). The content of the field should be whatever goes into the the src parameter of an image tag.

Thanks Mike.
It worked this time, though this is the slot that seemed only to take a limited number of characters last time.

The double-ups are gone.

When editing my review I noticed the apostrophe key kept duplicating itself on the OK'd (saved) version.
~> Nothing that multiple edits didn't fix !!!
