Guide to Posting Images in Sales Posts

Recommended Posts

Since the forum upgrade it had not been possible to use the add attachment function to add an image to a post directly from your own computer. This means that photos have to be hosted externally on a site like Photobucket or Flickr and then linked to on the forum. 

This is a quick screen capture guide showing how to add an image to your posts. Please use this function rather than a URL linking to the image making it necessary for people to browse away from FPN to see an image of your sale item. It's far easier for everyone if they can see an image in your sale post.


For Sale posts made without a photo or only providing a link to a photograph may be removed from the forum without warning.


This screen shot shows you where to find the add image tool.




That produces a little drop down box into which you add the link to your .jpg image.




Once you click on the 'insert image' button the image will appear within the posting box as shown.

If you have a picture in photobucket, upload the picture, then look for a 'Share this Image' table that looks like the one below:



Click on the 'IMG Code' text which highlights the text in the box to the right of it. Hovver the mouse over the highlighted text, right click, select 'Copy'. This copies the image address onto your computer's clipboard. Then paste the address into the FPN editor & hey presto you've got a picture in your post.

To add a photo stored on Flickr, do the following:

  1. Add photo
  2. Click on the 'Share this' tab.
  3. Click on menu option 'Grab HTML/BBCode'
  4. Click on the 'BB Code' Radio Button'
  5. In the box titled 'Copy & Paste the code below', do just that.
  6. Paste the copied text into the sale

Flickr adds lots of extraneous text & links, and if you only want the photo, only copy and paste the text starting with ] and finishing with [/img

      Not sure if this has been suggested already but would a setting for localized regions or chapters in FPN be helpful? I don't know if there is a way to find local FPN members who would be nearby. I don't know if we want to be discoverable but a setting to know how many members are in 25, 50, or a 100 miles of each other might be helpful. We can create a regions specific network like Craigslist where people could use that to connect with nearby members, conduct in person sales, arrange FPN meetups

      Hi again all, I forgot to tell y'all that I made the post about Sweden ink PIF. Most have probably found it long ago, but here's a link, anyway:

      I read your blog post and all the replies with much interest. I'm a FP user in Australia. Been part of this forum for years but rarely post. I did come across your ink sharing thread and considered participation. For me it's not lack of interest but lack of time to play around with FP and inks. I'd feel bad to put my hand up for the box and just have it sit until gosh knows when...   I also think that the FP community in Australia is smaller, and I wonder how many in the community are

      Even so, you'd end up with a fragmented list, and it becomes an O(N²) process for each prospective requestor to check what is available: effectively recreate the list of currently active servers (without any reliable up-to-date info upfront about the inks and number of samples on offer in the thread) from the sequential list of posts, which may be spread over two or even more pages, and then query each server independently to check what is currently on offer.   It comes down to not hav

      If one wanted to do this, one could just use the "About Me" field which appears to be unlimited in size.  And if a bunch of people wanted to cooperate, the Member Title field (or signature) could be used to this end - "Ink Giver" (or some such) could be used by those with inks to give...  No software edits required.
