    Recently I had multiple questions about the forum and how to add pictures to posts and the gallery. So therefor i'm gonna write a How-To for adding pictures in posts and to the gallery and how you get certain layouts for in your post.

    First of all, we do not encourage hotlinking pictures from other websites besides image hosting websites such as Imageshack.com for example. We have received some complains in the past so we already removed some of the links.


    How to get pictures in my post without the officers have to edit it or remove it.

    Step one:

    - Go to imageshack.com and upload your picture.
    - Copy the link to your picture (the webadress)
    - Go to your post and click on the button above to insert a picture. (bottom bar, 2nd from the left, with obviously the picture on it)

    If you did it correct you get these tags: [ img ] [ /img ] (without the spaces).

    Paste the link you got from the picture between the two tags.

    [ img ]YOUR LINK GOES HERE[ /img ] (again, without the spaces)

    Press the "post" button below to make your post or "preview" it and the picture should show up.


    Few things for posting a picture in your post this way.

    Make sure the picture isnt to big, so the forum dont get stretched out cause your picture doesnt fit into your screen, or someone else's screen. A proper guideline would be about 1200 pixels wide. Still a good size picture, and it doesnt mess about with the forum layout.

    How to upload a picture to our own gallery.

    Go to our gallery and pick an album. When you entered the album you can upload a picture there by clikcing "add an item to this gallery" or if you have multiple pictures, click the "mass upload" button.

    How do I do i show my own picture in my post?

    Well.. I dont know every trick for tbh.. But, i do know it doesnt work like the post above. You cant simply upload a picture on our gallery and link it like i showed in the previous post.

    How does it work? Pretty simple.

    You dont have to click any buttons from the menu above.

    - Go to your picture in the gallery
    - Copy the "BBC embed code"  i.e. [ smg id=439 ] (without the spaces)
    - Paste it in your post on the appropriate place in your post.


    This way you post a small picture in your post that is click-able. When someone clicks it, it will pop up as a bigger picture in the same page. Click next to it or on it to make it go away again.


    Summing it up:

    DONT use the other codes or links from our gallery, it will NOT work.
    ONLY use the "BBC embed code" if you like your post clean from big pictures.

    We encourage hosting pictures on websites like imageshack instead of filling our website with all your pictures, cause we dont have unlimited space on the server. Ofcourse, we like some pictures in our gallery, but i.e. not everything you see or encounter ingame. Cause frankly, we play this game too, and probably see the same stuff as you do.

    If there are more questions or the above posts are not clear enough, I can add pictures on how to do it step by step.

    On behalf of the Officers team,

    Good luck.
