Picture file hosting / display.
- ddwebmaster on 16-Dec-06 12:15 PM
If you'd like to upload pictures to display inline in your post, here's a way that you can accomplish it. I know it's not very user friendly right now, but it's a temporary way. I'd suggest printing out these instructions.

To upload a picture from your computer, first rename the picture something unique and include your username in the filename. Then go to "Your Diary" and click "new picture" - follow the steps to upload a picture. This will create a new entry and show the picture. Once this has occurred, you can feel free to erase the picture entry if you like.

Once you've uploaded the picture once, you don't need to upload it ever again. It will remain on the server's harddrive and you can use it whenever you'd like.

Before uploading the picture, please make sure the name is unique and includes your username in it. If the file name isn't unique, the server will automatically change the file name and you won't be able to find it. For example one of my filenames might be called: ddwebmasterchristmaswreath.gif

Once you've uploaded the picture file, you can place it inline in one of your new or edited posts by typing the following:

Of course, substitute your file name in place of samplepic.gif and there is a single space inbetween the words "img" and "src=".

One benefit to uploading the picture to dietdiaries server is faster load times. Another benefit is stability, the pictures hosted on other sites (free and otherwise) tend to disappear or change url addresses over time.
