Talk me through imbedding a You Tube link on here.

Thanks.

Hi Steve,
You don't have to use p bucket at all.
Here's the easiest way to do it. Above the posting block, see the icons. Starting with the "Bold" icon go to the 16th icon. It's where you insert image URL. Just paste the url of the image that you have copied and then hit ok.
Also, note that you cannot put a copied picture in. You can only post a url to an image or load one that you have already saved on your hard drive.

As far as embedding a youtube link, to the right of the youtube video, there is a box that says URL Embed. Copy the embedded link. Go to your post and hit the 19th icon, paste what you copied and hit ok.

Let me know if that helps. I will be at work all day today, so it won't be till later that I'll be fully on here today.

If I have saved a pic to my PC, in my photos, does it even have a URL?

"Sexual Content: Dont be posting it."

Post by CarolinaHound on Mon Jan 26, 2009 5:18 pm

Sexual Content: Dont be posting it.

Define sexual content. Does this mean OT and I can't post pics or links to pics of babes in bikinis?
No topics about sex what so ever?
(example say someone posts a topic in science about the mating habbits of humans in a scientific manner)
Does it mean no telling people to go booger themselves?

People have different ideas of what is acceptible and what's not is what I mean. Wink

Hi I have been using photo bucket. I then copy the html code than paste it in. Though I noticed today when you click on those pictures, they lead you to the photo bucket website.

Is that a NO-NO?

No, it does not have a url because a url is on the website. You could always put the photo on photobucket and then link it to here.
If you have saved a pix on your computer you have to locate it, in documents or photos or wherever you saved it in order to post it here. I don't use photobucket myself.
Using the host and image icon, I copied these that I had saved to my hard drive.
When you get into host an image, it's pretty self explanatory. Tell me how you make out.
I had these saved in my photos and hit host an image and this is what I got, using all 3 options that are contained within host an image.

See if this helps you and let me know.

I think that you and OT and C and howdy and most of the guys here know what is appropriate or not. A babe in a bikini is no biggie but a link to a porn site is.
From all that I can see , our guys are gentle men.

Now, if a post or picture comes up that is not sexually appropriate, it will be deleted immediately and then you will be pm'd that it was a no go. I am not going to ban you for that b/c, knowing you guys as I do, I'm confident that it will have been an honest mistake or a difference of opinion, in which case, you'll be advised of what the deal is.

Science is science and if it is discussed in an appropriate manner, you're good to go. If I think you have crossed the line, same thing-I'll do my thing and pm you. However, "scientific" pictures of two people doing it is a nich-nich. We all know what that looks like.

One thing I want everybody to know is banning people is the last thing that we want for our members. We will do our best to make you aware of an untoward situation so you can correct the problem before it gets to that point.

If a member antagonizes me and pushes me after being ask to please stop then I will take the appropriate action. But the last thing we want is to go the route of banning.

We just want to have fun.!

But don't tell people to go booger themselves. I don't know what exactly that means, but if you had to ask about it, I've got a feeling it's another nich-nich!

Ahh, but, depending on the picture, that could be considered porn or sexual content. Like romance novels, you can find them right within reach of children. Have you ever read some of them? Just porn in text form in my opinion, but many women would disagree and call it literature. That's why I asked to define sexual content. Not trying to be smart, just don't wanna get banned.

"go booger themselves" just so you'll know. Booger is a replacement word used by country folk to replace the f bomb. Wink

I take it everyone got the 'rules'.

I agree that there do need to be some set in place, for extreme circs, but I hope they are applied sensibly and fairly, at all times.

We are all grown up's here, so self moderating is the key.

Do you have a problem with the rules, as I noticed you are posting in the problem thread? tongue

Self moderating is what we expect of you, especially now, since you now have rules to follow. But if you fail, we step in. If you follow the rules, you should be golden.

The rules are as stated and they will be applied as stated and as deemed appropriately for the particular situation.

What goes on with the mods, who picked them and all general moderator business, is mod business.

No thats what I do too, if you use the [IMG] tags they provide at photobucket, there will be no link in the pic, the [IMG] code is made for forums and myspace. Also, maybe make your photobucket private in your options on photobucket.

But I dont care if you use the HTML code and leave a link.

If what makes me happy, Steve? You have asked me questions and made comments, all of which I have addressed with all due respect to you.

The fact that mod business is mod business is in no way a threat to you. It is correct and proper decorum. Admin/mods do not go to the members for the rules. We make the rules and bring them to the members.

2 ways.

Click the filmstrip icon when you are typing a post, its the 19th icon I think, enter the youtube URL in the box.

or

Go into your profile at the top, click the preferences tab, make sure HTML is "always on", just copy/paste embed code from youtube.


No I dont care where you host the pictures. I actually can enable a small free gallery, I might have to do that to make it easier for people.

Steve, stop stirring up shit. If you want to know why this and that, please PM me or email me as per the rules I posted today

OK some of the pictures I posted do lead back to photo bucket with out a link. Though I didn't know that was happening. So some of the pictures I have now do lead you back without a link. Though that is not what I intended. At least it didn't take a week for me to figure that out.
I have posted some pictures now using the URL. I find that a good way of doing that, and the clicking the pictures do not take you to another website.

Sorry about the ones I posted that bring you to photo bucket with out a link.

Select "host an image" (icon at the top). It will walk you through the steps to upload the image to a free image hosting service. Once you have done that, copy the URL (it'll have a couple options for image size, including a thumbnail that can be clicked for the larger image), and paste it into the image link text line, at the end of the procedure.

Or, get an account at any of a number of free hosting services (Photo Bucket, Webshots, etc.). Upload your pics to there, then link the the URL into your posts.

Once you do that, use the "Preview" button instead of the "Send" button at the bottom of your post editor to be sure it actually attached. If it looks OK, send it. Don't forget to SEND. The Preview is not posted to the thread yet.

Follow the host and image icon, is what you would normally do but it's not working right now. I will keep checking and when it's up again I'll post you here.

Or, get an account at any of a number of free hosting services (Photo Bucket, Webshots, etc.). Upload your pics to there, then link the the URL into your posts.

Once you do that, use the "Preview" button instead of the "Send" button at the bottom of your post editor to be sure it actually attached. If it looks OK, send it. Don't forget to SEND. The Preview is not posted to the thread yet.
I can't get the host image option to work as it usually does, DM. When I hit 'host it' it sends me back to the previous screen:File /URL???

Follow the host and image icon, is what you would normally do but it's not working right now. I will keep checking and when it's up again I'll post you here.

It works.......


What am I doing wrong DM? Thanks.

You have to "browse" and "upload" your pick, first. Once it uploads, then click "host it". It should then load the applet with the 3 URL's. Copy the middle URL to your clipboard (highlight the entire line, right click on it, select copy), then paste it into your post edit. If you don't upload first, it will continually cycle the little windows, as it has nothing to "host".

BINGO on all three options and thank you DM! I've done it before (see several posts up) but for the life of me, I couldn't do it without your help this time. I'm having your instructions tatted somewhere, haha!
