Forum Help: Adding Pictures To A Message
Upload Images Feature
<IMG SRC="/upload/userfiles/myusername/mypic.jpg">Where "myusername" is your forum username and "mypic.jpg" is the filename of the image you just uploaded. Be very careful to include a quote (") at the beginning and end of the SRC parameter. You can also use all the usual image options such align, hspace, vspace, height, width. See here for HTML documentation.
If you have taken an especially good photo consider emailing a higer resolution (800x600) to chockstone for possible inclusion in the Gallery or maybe even Pic Of The Week.
Appropriateness Of Images
It is NOT the intension that this feature be used to create personal photo albums for forum users. Chockstone does not have the space or the money. (Unless you want to fund us?) There are plenty of sites around that will do this for you (such as pbase.com), which quite rightly charge for the feature. You can include links to said sites in your messages.
Please only upload photos that you intend to display within the forum, for the purpose of explaining a point or showing a climb, such as trip report pictures or warnings about bad bolts, and the like. Once again, please keep images small both in file size and image size.
Pictures even slightly pornographic or found to be the copyright of someone else, will result in the images and user's account being deleted.
Photos On Other Servers
You can, of course, include photos from other servers. Simply use the HTML image tag as in:
<IMG SRC="http://www.mydomain/images/mypic.jpg">However, bear in mind certain things. Firstly, again, keep to small images so you don't crowd the window for low resolution viewers. Also remember that if the source server is slow, it will slow the forum page for everyone. One way to aid this problem is to include width and height parameters so that the page can render before it is loaded. As in:
<IMG SRC="http://www.mydomain/images/mypic.jpg" width=200 height=150>
