Inline Pictures
I'm sure you all have noticed the "InLine" option when you attach a file to a post. Seems like everyone checks the box just because it's there, not really knowing what it does. Heres it's purpose.

Remember, all pictures inserted into the body of the post must be 400 pixels max width. All pictures over 400 pixels wide may/will be deleted from the post.

When you upload an attachment, like a picture, you can check the box and click upload attachment and then once it reloads you can click the picture frame on the toolbar and it will paste the picture. It makes it easier so you don't have to edit your post and then paste the picture.

If you are not going to load the attachment into the body of your post then the InLine option is serving no purpose. One of the side effects of using the InLine option is that it does not allow a lot of people to see the attachment. Why? Who knows. I guess it's a computer thing or firewall thing or...So if you do not plan to put your attachment into the body of your post as described above, PLEASE DO NOT CHECK THE INLINE BOX if you want everyone to see it.

Details for using it as described by the Old Coot:
  1. First I "attached" four pics making sure that each one had it's "Inline" box checked during the attaching process.
  2. Next I went ahead and began writing the body of my post.
  3. As I wrote, I would come to a place where I would want one of the pics to appear. With the cursor at that spot I would click on the little image icon button (the button looks like a miniature mountain sceen). A small dialogue box pops up prompting you to select either an Image Location or an Inline Image. Clicking the radio button next to "Inline Image" would then display the four pics I had previously "attached" with the inline feature.
  4. I then just simply clicked the radio button next to the pic I wanted to display and then click on the Submit button and wallaaa the picture shows up there.

I would continue writing my post and repeating steps 3 and 4 for each pic.

Hope this helps.

thanks for the reminder,

these type of reminders can also be posted on each board temporairly from time to time since the avarage member dosnt visit this board unless they are having problems

some moderators will edit and unclick the in line box, depending on the moderator and the time he wants to spend. It dose take time for our bussy moderators to have to handle this situation so it is left up to thier discression, but you have posted the size rule corectly.


If the Lord's willing, You'll be Blessed.
