FSM MEMBERSHIP = DIRECT UPLOADING FROM YOUR PC!!!
That's right! If you pay for a Fullsize Membership upgrade to your Free FSB Registered account, you get the ability to directly upload pics from your PC to the site through an "Attachments" interface that become available to Members Only.
No hassles with upload to some other place, flipping between browsers, copying and pasting info from other sites, etc. :beer
1. When Replying in a thread or starting a New thread, scroll down beyond the text box and fine the button labeled "Manage Attachments" in the "Attach Files" category.
2. In the popup box (pop-up blockers may need to be disabled to access this feature) you will find the "Upload File from your Computer" area with a button at the end of the file path box, labeled "Browse".
Click it to open a local box on your PC that you may use to navigate to the desired image file.
3. Select the file and click the "Open" button in that box to select the desired path on your local PC.
4. Notice that path displayed in the file path box, Click the "Upload" button to initiate the file transfer from your PC to the site.
5. When the transfer is complete you will see the file name in the "Current Attachments" area. Close the File Attachment popup box.
6. When you have finished with the text of your post/thread the attached image should be displayed at the bottom of your entered text when the post is submitted.

SUPERMOTORS.NET = NO LIMITATIONS IMAGE LINKING
You'll need to upload your pics to a server that allows linking. There are many available to choose from, but SuperMotors seems to be the easiest, with the least limitations and it also allows you to associate your membership to the FULLSIZEBRONCO.COM Club, so you will be available on the FSB "MEMBERS PICTURES" link.
For further details please click: Creating a FREE SuperMotors.net Account

SuperMotors has made quite a few signifigant changes in how to use thier service to post pics on forums.
Rather than continually update this post... I will provide a link here to thier own instructions page.

From SuperMotors:
How do I link to or post pictures from my photo album in a message-forum post?


It's fairly easy to understand, but if you have problems... feel free to PM myself or another Forum Moderator or Admin for clarification.
Thanks!
As for posting pics from other web sites or other image storage services... it's a fairly simple process as well.

1. Right Click on the image you would like to post.
2. Choose "PROPERTIES"
3. In the Properties window you should see a category for "Address - (URL)" with a path to the right.
4. Highlight and COPY the entire path given (it should end in .JPG or .GIF)
5. When creating your post... click on the IMG button above the posting window.
6. PASTE the path you copied earlier into the popup window and click "OK".
Now you should see the path displayed along with the proper [/b] tags on either side.
If you are unsure if the host will allow remote access to images... give it a try here: [URL=http://www.fullsizebronco.com/forum/forumdisplay.php?s=&forumid=8][b]TESTING[/b][/URL]
[/quote]

It's just that simple folks... have fun and we love pics so POST AWAY!!! :beer

FSB has provided an entire forum for [URL=http://www.fullsizebronco.com/forum/forumdisplay.php?s=&forumid=8][b]TESTING[/b][/URL], so please feel free to use it and if you have any questions you can also PM myself or any other Moderator or Active member for answers to your questions. :thumbup


A quick trick that has been asked about...
[quote]"How do I create an IMAGE in my post that is a clickable hyperlink?"

OK, just wrap the URL code around the image code.
Instead of using TEXT in the URL creation wizard, just enter the code for the desired image. Kinda like this... (only with [B][ ][/B], instead of [B]{ }[/B] )

[B]{URL=http://www.linksite.com}{IMG}http://www.imagesite.com/image.gif{/IMG}{/URL}[/B][/quote]

Photobucket UPDATE as of 06-29-2017, 06:20 PM by Prizefighter
"It seems they updated their terms on 6/28/17 and it states they do not allow 3rd party image hosting... ...Unless you purchase the Plus 500 Plan for $399.99/year.."
Nearly all past Photobucket images are now lost.
..
Schwim advised, "Flickr offers 1 terabyte for free and supports remote image viewing. I've run it for years without issue. Imgur is a less formal alternative that is great for throwing up images quickly and still getting different sizes for sharing.

admin edit: this posting copied in response to a Flickr account user....


:banghead flickr ...

Sorry, I've never used flickr before but I figured out what your issue is. It seems that unless you use the BB coding provided by flickr, you cannot share images stored on flickr. So what you will need to do in the future:
  1. When you chooce the image you would like to upload click More sharing Options ( The square icon with the arrow coming out of it)
  2. then select BB Code
  3. copy all the high lighted text and paste it on the forum.
I added an image to help with this.

- dm, community support

How do I create the little "Youtube" video box? You know, where it posts the actual video so you can play it right there on the thread instead of just posting the hyperlink text.
Copy/Paste of shared link:
PHP:
[MEDIA=youtube]sMzybtQNqRw[/MEDIA]

Remove "extra" YouTube address info. FSB's YouTube imbed tags don't need that extra info. Leaving you with this:

PHP:
[MEDIA=youtube]sMzybtQNqRw[/MEDIA]

Which produces this...



==================================================================
** EDIT / UPDATE: I originally posted the instruction above, almost 2 years ago. (today: 1/7/2017)
Our message board / forum or possibly YouTube itself has evolved a little since then.

Now... all you need to do is copy the URL address from the YouTube page you're watching and PASTE it, directly in your post.
The forums software will resolve it to display a copy of the video and it wil be displayed at whatever the largest size of your browser window is at the time.
It's faster, simpler and gives a better display. The old style still works... but not as easy-peasy as this new process. :thumbup

Same vid, displayed as described...


===================================================================

Quoted from another thread... same basic instructions with pics. :thumbup
To embed a YouTube video on the site(easiest method):

Visit the video in your browser. Once you're there, you want the URL that's in the address bar of your browser:

Click for biggie:


You want to copy that URL and paste it in it's own line in the text box as you're making your post. No tags, editing or special work needed. The forum will automatically detect and embed the video for you.

Here's what it would look like:

Click for biggie:


When submitted, will look like this:

Click for biggie:


That's all there is to it! Very sorry for all the thread hijacking :)

Well... another couple yrs gone by and a major update to the board software, care of our Corporate owners, AutoGuide/VerticleScope.

Since the update... a recent change has taken place to photo's directly uploaded to FSB.
Now those uploaded pics automatically display in a thumbnail size format that has to be clicked to expand.
This change is part of the new "Mobile Friendly" movement taking place all over the web... much to the frustration of many of us old codgers.

So I'm here again to share how to "adjust" your FSB uploaded pictures to display in Fullsize, as originally intended.
Unfortunately, this will take a few extra steps... but this is the best I've got so far and in my opinion, totally worth the effort.
I'm currently working in Firefox 43.0.3, so if this doesn't work for you or behaves differently, please report it to me so I can fix this post to reflect any issues or corrections to specific browsers.

Step 1: Upload your pictures, as referenced at the top of this thread, in the original post.
Step 2: After you click submit and see your new post displayed... click on each image you uploaded, once.
Step 3: When the image opens in a little "pop-up" display box, click the image... again.
Step 4: When you click on the full size picture box, the picture opens again in it's own browser window.
- Now you can easily see the actual address of the file uploaded on the FSB server. Copy that whole URL.
Step 5: Use the boards standard "Add Image" button "
" and add the address you just copied into the little popup box, then click to submit. This will automatically insert the image address into the brackets. Because it is stored on the FSB server, it will now display the image in the regular boards allowed dimensions, not in the thumbnail display size.[/quote]

For example... the bottom pic is my Bronco in the stock thumbnail.
The pic right above it, is the added file as explained above. :thumbup

FYI, I found another way that lets you do so without having to submit and then re-edit your post.

After step one, scroll down to the Additional Options section where you can see a list of your attachment file names. Simply right click and choose option to copy image link (exact text will depend on browser), then jump to step 5.

For lazy masochists who really don't want to shuttle all their images

For lazy masochists who really don't want to shuttle all their images that their phones have already uploaded to Google Photos . . .

. . . here is the bizarre ritual I've found to work on this forum and a few others I frequent. I warn you in advance there are steps you are either going to want to try and skip (or if you are forgetful like me at times you'll just miss a step.) I assure you all the odd steps are required for everyone to see the pictures.

First order of business is that for your sanity you'll want "two different browser sessions". Two tabs in the same browser will often get you in trouble. So something like one Firefox session and another Chrome session -- for instance. Doing one regular session and then a "incognito" session also works but can get confusing.

Next up, in your Google photo library you will need an album that is shared openly to all of the internet. To do this (as of this writing, things change though) while viewing your album hit the three dots stacked on top of each other in the top right hand area (when you mouse over it the label "more options" displays) then when the menu displays after clicking choose "Sharing options". Copy the url provided (making any changes to comments and contributions as you see fit while there.

Now you need another browser session that does NOT have the Google account you were just using logged in. That way you are viewing as an "outsider" not yourself again. Paste the link you copied above. View the photo you want and right click on it (while in the large full screen view) and choose "Copy image address". That address will only show the one photo you just right clicked on and can be posted to the forums. If you have multiple images they just need to be in the same shared album so that you can flip through to the desired pic(s) and right click and copy their individual address(es).

I don't expect many folks out there are as committed to Google Photos, but just in case I hope this helps you!
