Attaching images


To include images in your post or reply (in the forums that allow it), use either:

1) The attachment option - up to 8 attachments, each no larger than 250kb files size (and/or 1600 pixels in height or width for an image).

2) Use the button to enter the image URL of an image file at/on a third-party site.

An image URL is of the image, not the page the image is on. The file will likely end in something like .jpg, .jpeg, .png, .gif, etc. It will not end in .html, .htm, .php, .asp, etc.

Currently, some forums do not allow #1 above (o/t and classifieds - and thus #2 is the only option there).

Doug, check out the message boards that Rivals.com uses. It is the best I've seen. Super mobile and media friendly.

Seems like this board is due for a much needed upgrade. It's had a good 10-15 year run.

Doug, please address the issue of those couple of Nomads who use Photobucket or other image hosting sites, but don't take the minute to set the upload size to 800 pixels or less, thus stretching the Nomad page off the screen, requiring side scrolling to read/view... on the standard size monitor.

On the first post in the Nomad Photo Gallery forum, I give a 'how to' set Photobucket tutorial: http://forums.bajanomad.com/viewthread.php?tid=65085

I agree that it would be great to update to a more user friendly software, however as we all know that takes time and money. Maybe the Nomads could set up a GoFundMe (or other similar) account to raise some money to make this happen.

Hmm is it 800 pixels wide as David says or 1600 as Doug says?

800 is pretty small. 1600 is huge.

Mine are set at 1024 and won't stretch the screen unless you have a very tiny monitor.

Both are true. You can upload an image of up to 1600 pixels but Nomads will compress it to 800 pixels and post that copy to the forum as your image. If you click on that 800 pixel image a new tab will open with just your original 1600 pixel image.

There is a reduction in quality with this additional compression which you don't get when referencing an image on another server such as what JZ did but it's a more straightforward way of uploading images.
