Awesome write up.Bookmarked!
Cynthia, great article. I've used forums off and on for the last 10 or 15 years. I've got away from it the last year or two, so technology is getting ahead of me. How do i up load a picture or a video? If nothing else could you send me the right link?
@NY_Caveman posted these helpful tips the other day and should address some of your questions.
Hi Raymond. Thanks for the kind words. I'm sure this information can be found elsewhere, but I'm just going to tell you right here!
For a video, the main thing you have to know is the video needs to be "hosted" somewhere. There are lots of places you can do that for free. Most of us just upload it to youtube. Once it's uploaded somewhere, all you need is the URL or address of where the video lives, and you can just copy and paste that URL in your message. For example, on youtube, here's a screenshot of a video that I love. Look at the top, and you'll see the URL. That's what you copy and paste into your message. The video will be automatically embedded.
And here's the actual video:
What you do is click on "Upload a File" (see screenshot below)
Then you choose whatever photo file you want. Here's me choosing a screenshot from my computer.
Then if you look further below, you will see that the photo files are uploaded.
So, you put your cursor wherever you want the photo to appear in the message, and click on full image.
Now your photo will be visible in the message. You'll get used to it. It may feel cumbersome at first, but it will become second nature. Then you just click on "Post Reply" when you're ready to publish your message or comment.
