Is this thing on?

 

Attaching gallery image:

 

2012 05 10 Rocket Detail IMG 3819 Dodge& Burn Vignette

 
 

Made it real small.  Hmmmm..

 

Attachment from bottom of page:  Error This upload failed

 

So - I'm guessing the only way to put an image with a post is to upload it to the gallery first. 

 

Not liking that much....

Hmmmmm.....  I'll try it again.

 

Nope.  Won't work.  Still getting the error message.

 

Funny thing is:  The text next to the 'Attach This File" button says "You can upload to Uploading is not allowed of files (Max. single file size: 30MB)"  Just like that.  Bold and all.

 

Weird.

 

OK.  I clicked on the Advance uploader and tells me that I have exceeded my allotted disk space for attachments.

 

Again - weird.

We will get the bugs worked out.........

 

Did you see this?

 

Help Topic: Gallery

 

The gallery can be used to upload images you wish to share with the community. To access it, click the "Gallery" tab at the top of any page.

Gallery Home Page
The gallery has two areas: Categories and albums. Administrators will create the categories that you can upload images into, or create albums within. If you have permission to create albums, you will be able to create them within the categories that administrators designate as accepting new albums. The homepage may show a feed of recent images, featured images, categories and/or recently updated albums, depending upon the administrator's configuration selections.


Viewing Categories and Albums

Image Listing
You will see a tiled layout of images that the album contains. You can click on any thumbnail to see the full-size image. The information will initially display inline, allowing you to navigate the images without leaving the page, however you can view more details about the image by clicking on the image caption within the window.
If the category has any sub-categories or albums, you will see these listed.


Slide Shows
You may be able to see a slide show of all images in that category or album by pressing the slide show link when viewing the list of images. Click on the Slidehow link to enter the slideshow mode.



Viewing Images

Information, ratings and options
To the side of the image, you will see more information about the image such as who uploaded it, when they uploaded it, how many views and comments the image has, and how big it is.

You may see a number of stars which show the image's rating. You may also be able to rate the image yourself by selecting one of the stars. If you are able to rate an image, the stars will change color as you move your pointer over them.


To the side of the image you will see a photostrip of other images in the category or album, which you can use to quickly jump to those images. You can cycle through these images by clicking the < and > buttons to the left and right of the photostrip.

Sharing Images

Below the image, you will have several options to share it with others, such as Facebook, Email, or Twitter.
Embed Images
Each image has unique HTML and BBCode embed links for you to embed them on your website or within the forums. To display these, click on the "Options" drop down, and then click on "Share Links"
Comments
At the bottom of the image's page, you will see any existing comments on the image. You can add a comment by pressing the "comment_add.png Add Comment" button, and you can use the "Reply" and "Multiquote" links, and the Fast Reply box, just like in the forums.


Adding your Images

Clicking an upload link or button will take you to the media upload page. This is a two step process.
The first step is to select or create an album (or category) to upload the images into. Once the album or category has been set, you can upload images right away when the upload form reveals itself.
When you have uploaded the images you wish, you click the 'Review & Publish' button which will allow you to rotate the image or edit the image's details.

The forum will automatically thumbnail images that are attached to posts. It can be disabled so the full photo can be seen without having to click on it, but what many people will do is they'll upload the raw photos from their camera which can be 3-5 times larger than most people's screen resolution. I adjusted the thumbnail size to be bigger, testing in this post

That's definitely better than the little thumb.  I understand not wanting to display the full-hirez files - I know a lot of people don't understand that they need to resize before they upload to the web.  That's why Facebook does it automatically.

 

If it were up to me I'd go with a bit larger still than what you've done (at LEAST as wide as your sig photo) but it's NOT up to me so....
