Picture JPEG attachments in-line - Forno Bravo Forum: The Wood-Fired Oven Community



Photo Galleries are back! Instructions below.

Dear forum users,
Thank you for your patience with the Photo galleries. We've got your galleries online!
We have finished writing a custom script to migrate the PhotoPlog to vBulletin5’s albums.

Unfortunately V-Bulletin killed the "Photoplogs" in their software upgrade which was unforeseen and we're the first development group to have written a script for getting the galleries back... that said, it took some time to reverse engineer the code and get the albums to move over seamlessly!

Forum users will be able to access their “PhotoPlog” images through their user profile page by clicking on the “Media” tab.
They will also be able to browse other albums by going to the albums page. (On the forum site, there is a link in the black bar beside “Forums” to the albums.)

In order for users to create an album please follow the steps below.
1) Go to user profile page and click “Media”
2) Click Add Photos
3) Enter Photo Gallery Title in the first field
4) Click Upload or Select from Photo Album to add photos
5) Click Post
6) Once posted, the album will be created as a “Topic” on the albums page for the public to see. The topic title will be the “Photo Gallery Title” they created before uploading their photos.

To create this migration path we used vBulletin5’s default album structure. Unfortunately, it won’t work like the “PhotoPlog” but is an album/gallery component on the forum now.

  • Picture JPEG attachments in-line

    I've had a question from a forum member about attaching pictures on your oven thread and I want to let others know how to do it using Picasa Web. This does not work exactly like this for other photo albums but it DOES work strictly for PicasA Web. (The latest Picasa on your PC will go to the new Google+ photo thingy that doesn't work. You have to google and go to the original "old" picas-web to view the photo from your "drop-box" that you want to post on-line here).

    Go to picasa-web, (your account where you uploaded a wfo progress print either into "drop box" or a whatever file you created)
    Pick or click the photo.

    On the right side you see A blue "LINK TO THIS PHOTO" button. Click it and you get 2 options. Ignore the 1st and click on "EMBEDDED IMAGE" then check off a "MEDIUM" image in the drop down box.

    Now click INSIDE the "embeded image" box and cut it (edit "cut" or control-C) the entire line within it.

    Now go to Forno Bravo Forum, and inside your message box (like the one you're reading this on now) Click on the yellow "post-card" image along the top (it has a mountain and a sun) and you get a box. Delete the highlighted http from the box that pops up and "Paste" or control-V the image you just copied from picasaweb.

    This is the ONLY tricky part: you will see 8 lines of jibberish but within it you will see the 2nd "https;//ih5....bla...bla...bla.." (not the 1st https but the 2ND) and it goes for about 2 lines and ends in .jpg ("dot j-peg").

    Erase every word and punctuation before and after but you must leave it with the brackets that say image [IMG] on either side. Click on "preview post" and you'll see it.

    Below is the "jibberish" you see. I've highlighted the part you want to keep in order to see your photo on your post. Do not leave in the "quotation" marks. Erase everything else and below is the picture that I just put in.

    [IMG]<table style="width:auto;"><tr><td><a href="https://picasaweb.google.com/lh/photo/kFddo52L0xd8p74bwbgbqd16i6wns6Gc55Ajj4j2faAA?feat= embedwebsite"><img src="https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-UFSDUBCd_Y7w/T7phIPl61NI[/url]/AANNAAANKQ/caqIAbmEtpw/s400/DSC_2119.JPG" height="266" width="400" /></a></td></tr><tr><td style="font-family:arial,sans-serif; font-size:11px; text-align:right">From <a href="https://picasaweb.google.com/1132375960282847074611/DropBox?authuser=0&authkey=Gv1sRgCKO34MuJoYzgxAE&f eat=embedwebsite">Drop Box</a></td></tr></table>[/IMG]

    Honestly, it takes me 40 seconds to do (I've posted so many pics ).

    I'm sure there are other ways for other photo viewers too.
