Tutorial: Posting Pictures on BAK

Post by WindMuch » Sun Oct 06, 2013 12:07 pm

It's always cool to run into members of the BAK crew at the beach or at social events. When I meet other users, we usually exchange our BAK usernames and it's not uncommon for someone to say: "I can't figure out how to post pictures on the forum". So, here's a quick tutorial on the (unintuitive) process:

The secret sauce in posting pictures is hidden at the bottom of the window when you're creating or replying to a post.

1. Scroll way, way down in your post and click the "Upload attachment" button next to "Options":
Upload_Button.jpg
Upload_Button.jpg (38.22 KiB) Viewed 4892 times
2. Click "Choose File", select the file you want, then click the "Add the File" button:
Choose_File_2.jpg
Choose_File_2.jpg (65.72 KiB) Viewed 4888 times
3. When the file has been uploaded (it may take a minute), you'll see a new section called "Posted Attachments" at the bottom of your post:
Place_Inline.jpg
Place_Inline.jpg (31.52 KiB) Viewed 4892 times
4. Position your cursor in the body of your post where you want the picture to appear and click the "Place inline" button.

4a. Repeat as needed for multiple pictures.

5. Lastly, hit "Preview" or "Submit" and you should be good to go!

(this silly process is part of the PHP_BB software used on BAK and can't be modified)
