Adding Images: Upload & Insert

This short video explains the basics of how to add images to a forum posting using the Upload and Insert method. Written instructions are included below.

We'll assume you are already in the editing panel to start a new topic or reply to an existing post. 

You can enter some text into the panel to start your post.

To add an images, scroll down the page until you get to the section marked Images (see below).

Click on the button marked "Choose Files". This will allow you to choose an image stored on your own PC, laptop or tablet etc. Browse to find the image you want to upload. Once you have found it click on the Open or Insert button (depending on you OS and browser) in the file browser window. The Images section will now look like the panel below.

Now click on the Upload button. This will transfer a copy of your image onto the server used by the Club website. You should see a small version of the image you have chosen (as below).

Now decide on the size of image you want to insert. Click on the small black down arrow in the Style box. You will see a selection of preset sizes (below).

You can choose any of these or simply leave the setting as Original Image.

To insert the image into your post simply click on the Insert button. The image will be inserted into your post at the last position of the cursor.

To make sure your post and images are saved, you must click on the Save button at the very bottom of the editing window.

You can add as many images as you like in this way, there is no limit. However, each image must be no larger than 10Mb otherwise it will not upload.

Don't forget to click the Save button at the bottom of the screen when you are ready to post to the forum.
