    how to post a clickable thumbnail

    to preserve bandwith, i want to be able to post clickable thumbnails. i either end up with just a link, a full size image or an unclickable thumbnail. i want to be able to do it from the hf gallery, not other sites. i know it can be done! help!

    After loading pictures into the HF gallery, go to a picture that you want to show as a thumbnail & click on it.
    It will show you a larger version with more info.
    Look down at the bottom of the info below the picture you will see BB Image Code: To the right of that is a box with a long line of info (URL I think it's called).
    Copy that & proceed back to the thread were you want to paste it, then paste it were you want the thumbnail in you post.

    Note; The URL is longer than what you see at any given time in the box, so you have to scroll while copying.But sometimes, for some reason, it doesn't want to scroll when I get to the edge, so I have to abort the copy, right click in that area as if I were going to type, then hold the space bar to make the thing move to the unseen end.
    Some of the computer educated here can explain in a much better way than I did though

    Here is my attempt: I used a random pic from the home page. Also, I triple clicked on the code instead of scrolling.

    ctrl-a is a shortcut for select all, so i usually press ctrl-a followed by ctrl-c to copy the url. still, it fails to create a thumbnail in the message body grrr...

    Or, if it does not select the entire box when you place your cursor there, once you have your cursor anywhere in the box, you can just press "Ctrl A" and it will select the whole box. Then "Ctrl C" copies it. Once you are back in your post "Ctrl V" pastes it. Just another way to get er done.

    Have a question of my own, but will post new thread so as not to hijack.

    EDIT: Kobold, LOL! We were typing the same thing at about the same time, I stopped for breakfast before clicking "submit"! So, what Kobold said!
    For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us....that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.

    The Gallery is in the top left of the forum. That's where you want to upload hammock-related photos for thumbnails, and so they are part of the rotating photos on the main page.

    Personal albums in your profile are just that....albums in your profile. Handy for putting photos that aren't really hammock-specific but you still want to be browsable in the profile.
    I think that when the lies are all told and forgot the truth will be there yet. It dont move about from place to place and it dont change from time to time. You cant corrupt it any more than you can salt salt. - Cormac McCarthy
