Using the post editor

The editor is simple to use and below are some of the basic functions you can do when using it.


 

How to add a photo

Adding and resizing photos are simple and there are various ways of doing it.  Photos in the forum should be a maximum of 640px and no larger.

To add a photo, simply click on the photo icon as shown below;

This then opens a box where you can put in the url (use the direct link in photobucker or similar)

When you resize there are two icons next to the height and width boxes.

Make sure the pixel ratio is locked that way it resizes proportionally.

Alternatively you can re-size after you have the photo in your post.  All you do here is click the photo and a re-sizing box appears around the photo.  Simply drag a corner to re-size it.

 

Embedding Media

Embedding media is just as simple.  First locate the embed media button  on your editor;

Click the button and a box appears where you can insert the embed code;

Click ok for the video to appear in your post.

Also, if you wish to resize the you tube vid, simply click it in your post and a re-sizing box appears.  Simply drag the corner to re-size the video.
