I'm sure there's one a few of there around already but hey, thought i'd make a fresh new one.

I want my screens on this forum as clickable thumbnails, or if not to big, just a pic i guess ^^.. but seeing as alot of people don't get how to make them i thought, wth, I'll just show you. So here it goes :D


First off you want to upload the pic. to entropiaforum.com's gallery, simple enough, but here it goes.

1. Click the link to gallery
2. Click upload



you will now reach the upload image section

1. Click to browse you computer for the pics you want to upload
2. Choose which category to upload your picture to
3. Submit the picture

(all other fields are optional at this points)



image upload part 2, here you can make any final changes to your pics and change the name

1. Process the upload (unless you want to change the name first)




your pics are now uploaded! :)

Now for the part that seems to be the biggest problem for people, posting your pics as clickable thumbnails.

The first thing you want to do (after you've uploaded the pic to the gallery) is to start a thread or post, which ever you are making. and then follow these simple steps.

1. Click "open" over at my pics to browse the pictures you have uploaded.



2. Click on the picture you want to show in you post. (it will appear at the bottom of what's in you post so far.)



3. Go back to writing you post, finish up and submit you post/thread (you might want to preview it to see that everything is in order)



And that's about it, now let's not upload any more links to wierd pages or pics that mess up the whole forum, Clickable thumbnails FTW!!

:yay:

You really do learn something new everyday....
I can't believe I didn't know this, but I never noticed the existence of that open link to the right of the message box! Now I don't have to go search the gallery again just to find the clickable thumbnail link to my uploaded pictures :duh:

Thanks Lork - I never realised the My Pics button existed. I'm gonna try it with an old pic and see how I go...



This is a pic I took of myself deliberately trying to be as much of a n00b as possible, ages ago, and recently turned into a demotivational poster...

Good post mate. I had never seen the Open my pics link before either, but i now do have an addition for your tutorial ;)

When you click the Open link, you can select the target for the clickable thumbnail. By default it is (second dropdown): 'Clickable thumb (to gallery)' however, this messes up the viewing in the browser (or so i think ;)). Select: 'Clickable thumb (new window)' if you want to make my life a little better :silly2:

when you open "my pics" it automaticly shows the "entropia universe related" section, you might have uploaded the pics into another section of the forum.

I think whoever runs the forum.. 711 i think..

Should implement the height/width option for bbcode.

This would allow people to only need to upload 1 image, no need for thumbnails.

You merely set how big you want the image to display, and then people can click it for the full image.

Would be something like this.
Code:
[url = https://www.planetcalypsoforum.com/gallery/files/3/5/2/5/1/myimage.jpg]
[img = width=443 height=235]https://www.planetcalypsoforum.com/gallery/files/3/5/2/5/1/myimage.jpg[/ img][/ url]
[i][size=1][br]Click to enlarge[/br][/size][/i]

That way we can define how big we want our thumbnail to be, plus it's less storage space used, since no more individual thumbnails.
