Uploading Pictures to the Forum

From French Car Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

The French Car Forum does not support direct uploads of image files to the forum database. We do allow and encourage the use of images to illustrate problems and repair techniques, but it is the responsibility of the user posting the images to host them on and external server, and embed and image link in their posting.

The exact method of embedding an image link will depend on the service used to host the image, there are some notes below to help with using some common hosting services.

The [img]...[/img] link

The [img]...[/img] BB code (surrounding the URI of the linked image) tells the forum sofware that the enclosed link is to be rendered as an image. The complication is that many of the image hosting sites give by default a URI to a web page containing the image, not the URI of the image itself. The method of extracting the actual image URI to use varies.
