Awww great job and the perfect picture for the tip. Your instructions also beat my long winded ones by a mile!
Just in case someone likes long winded: If you want to include a picture within a post- (not the persona/profile/avatar image that appears next to the member name on their post each time) you need to have the picture available already uploaded online. So upload those ultrasound pictures and pictures of the cute stuff you are collecting! We want to see them.
Once you have a picture uploaded online -like on Flickr, Facebook, Picasa, Picapp, Photobucket, online photo album, a personal website, etc-then you just use the url for that picture.
Be sure you own the picture or have permission to use it. There are some free use picture sites so if you want a generic shamrock or beach or whatever out there but they will ask you to link back to their site. Please follow any rules the picture hosting site requires.
Once you have located a picture you want to use-find out the URL. You can right click on the image and click "copy image location" if you aren't sure about the url for the image itself. You need the image URL-not the page the image is on. This url will end in .jpg most likely.
For the example, I will use a picture here on WebMD:
To turn a url like that to a picture in a post, click the photo icon at the top of this box. It is the one that looks like a blue square in a Polaroid-sort of. Paste that entire url into the pop up box and here is that picture: View Thread
If you have friends who aren't here yet and you know their email...I encourage you to click send to a friend in the upper right corner and invite them. That way, it will be one quick click for them from the email until we get a better navigation sorted out.
Old bookmarks to the third trimester board should have redirected to this exchange automatically-but for people who didn't bookmark for whatever reason-I see how it could be a problem.View Thread
Now that you have had twelve or so days to get to know the new exchanges-let me know what else we can do to help make them better.
We darkened the font. We definitely know you want emoticons and signatures back. We know you want more discussions on a page and easier navigation.(What does that look like to you?) But-what else might help you really love exchanges?
Tell me in as much detail as you can what things still trip you up, what changes you want to see made. (Navigation changes? Which ones? Too much white space? Not enough? Better search?)
I really want and need your ideas. I am making a list and checking it twice-so we can work on getting rid of the naughty and make it nice.
I can't promise anything other than the fact that you will be heard. I want you to know YOU, each of you, is important to us.
If there is anything you don't know how to do yet and it isn't in the Exchange FAQ -let me know that too. I am here to help.View Thread
