How to upload pictures on MAACA

Postby Azatotht » Sat Mar 15, 2014 9:02 am

I have been asked by a few people, so here goes.

If you want to directly upload pictures on MAACA, first start a post or a reply, then scroll down to the 'upload attachment section.

Select the file you would like to upload, then click on 'Add the file'.

Once the image has been uploaded, you can then use it and place it inside your post. Look up for 'Attachments' under your post, choose the image you want to add in there and click on 'Place inline'.

You will then see your image included in your post between 'attachment' bbcode.

You can also use an external image or service, of course, but people wanted to know how to actually upload them on the site without using an external host. Enjoy.

I tried it out and its quite easy.

Does it work the same for videos?
Pins: Lightning, Af-Tor, Embryon, Black Hole, Elektra, Stellar Wars, 8 Ball Deluxe LE, Timeline, Silverball Mania
Vids: Double Dragon 619-1
Gone: Space Station, Top Score, Flash Gordon, Solar Fire, Haunted House, Fire (x2), Vector, Bally Playboy, Tropic Isle, Beat the Clock, Blue-Chip

Its better to have played and lost than never to have played at all.

No, cant upload videos, these are way too big ;-)

Upload them on youtube then use the 'youtube' bbcode to embed them :-)
