In the code bar type in what it is, ie "beer"


Wrong, "code" is the bulitine board code you type (or get's inserted when you click the images) to generate the smiley.

"Tooltip or description:" is what appear in the text bubble if you let the mouse pointer sit over the image for a second.


The code, should be simple, easy to type, but not common text that someone might type.
The description is where you put longer more detailed descriptions.


If you look, all the ones that came with the forum have descriptions, an the code has a colon (or two)

Only the wink Wink doesn't, and shades Cool and they following the old ASCII usenet/email conventions.
Most of the default set uses the old conventions, as do most email programs.

 police has a colon on each end, as do  laugh and angel So did :afro: Afro (before you changed it).

 Dog said it could be done from the servers site. I tried it, the Coppermine site you have, and it spit som gargle out about original script.  huh?

Actually, the Misfits site used Gallery2 http://gallery.menalto.com/ and the SMF integration package from http://galleryproject.oldiesmann.us/index.php

The Modified site uses Coppermine and no integration.


It was installed from the hosting site's cPanel tool Fantastico.

 Yep, I figured that out and I have to go in and change a bunch of them so a smiley won't pop up in normal text.

 Yep, got it done.

 Now, do you have to type in a validation code everytime you send a PM?

 Apparently after you have made 5 counted posts, you don't need the validation anymore.

Someone changed it to 1. Don't know who or when.

Also that limit doesn't apply to members of the Admin group, but does apply to other groups, including moderator.

 Posting pictures.

 If anyone is having problems posting pictures, here is the procedure to do so.

 On the post page, you will see "Additional Options" at the bottom left. Click on that and you will see at that bottom of the menu, "Attach" and to the side of that "Browse"

 Click on "Browse" and that will allow you to search your computer for the picture you wish to upload. If you wish additional pictures, click on the "(more attachments)" to the right of the "Browse" button.

 You can upload a maximum of 4 pictures od up to 250KB each. Pictures parger than that will not upload and you will bneed to resize them. There are various methods to do this, I just mail them to myself and they are resized to about 75 KB. I use Hotmail for this.

 Also, you can use an image hosting site such as Photobucket, as I do. On the picture in the file, there will be a drop down menu as you drag your mouse over the picture. Copy the bottom URL and simply paste it to the body of the text in your post and the picture will be displayed when you post your reply.

 STDog will have to verify this, but if you right click on the picture, a menu will appear. Click on "copy image location" then paste to the body of the post. You will then have to place " [img]" before and after the image location you just pasted to the post.

You can upload a maximum of 4 pictures od up to 250KB each. Pictures larger than that will not upload and you will need to resize them. There are various methods to do this

You could increase the filesize limit.

For resizing I normally use Irfanview (http://www.irfanview.net/)
Picasa is another well liked program (http://picasa.google.com/)

Windows comes with Paint, which can be used for doing it.
And If you have Microsoft Office, it comes with Microsoft Photo Editor.

The normal method is to find the resize or scale option (usually in the Image" menu), then change the height/width of the image (800 pixels is a good size for the larger one, about 600 for the smaller one)

For MS Photo editor you need to change the units to pixels, or use the percetages.
Paint only does a percentage, and you need to be sure to enter the same in both boxes (or it will distort the picture).

Then "Save as" and use a new name/location so you don't replace the original.

Or click "More", then the "Get link code" tab and you can choose from "IMG for bulletin boards & forums"
"Full size" for the full image
"Clickable thumbnail" Will show a thumbnail on the forum which you can click for the full size picture.

STDog will have to verify this, but if you right click on the picture, a menu will appear. Click on "copy image location" then paste to the body of the post.

That works for most pictures you can view with a web browser.

You can manually put the tags around the "location"
Code:
[IMG]http://blah.blah/somewhere/somefile.jpg[/IMG]

You can select the location text in the post window then click the "insert Image" button above the smileys

Or, you can click that button first, which will put the tags in the post and put the cursor between than, then paste the location (CTRL-V)

 Thanks Dog.

 Now, isn't a CTRL-V a Hot Rod Cadillac?

Could be. Not that I'd have the money for an of the V series cars.




Seriously, the keyboard is better for that. Right click can move the cursor on you, and the Edit menu is a long way to move the mouse.
