First, Between Carl and Jan, the code has been cracked for loading full size pictures....

At least until we get it working totally correctly.

This is a quote from Jan:


  "I choose a picture,
   then click "End of post expandable thumbnail"
   and then "Inline fullsize image" in the dropdown menu,
   which will put the attachment part mentioned by Carl in place,
   and show a fullsize picture once posted."


Carl and Jan, Thank you very much for this.

Until further notice this topic will be a sticky.


In addition, You should be able to upload pictures up to 4 MB in size with no problem.

Pictures too large will automatically display at that set maximum display size, no worries.

You should now be able to upload up to 20 pictures per post if they are 1.5 MB each or less.

This is due to a 30 MB total per post limit.
So...
15 pics at 2 MB each should work.
10 pics at 3 MB each should work.
 7 pics at 4 MB each should work.

I hope this is helpful and I hope it is correct!

Have fun,

Gil

Im trying to start a thread with a picture but donít think Iím doing something right. Is the picture supposed to show up when when I press the preview button?  All Iím seeing when I do that is some coding.
Thanks

You are doing it right, same thing happens when I click "preview", and then the images show up in the post after submitting. Try your post, if it doesn't work out, we can help you fix it  ;)

You simply select "inline full sized image" from the drop down to the right of the Attach - Choose File box.

You will see this  [ attachimg=1]    and only this if you have done it right (without spaces).

It should go without saying.... be sure to first choose a file by clicking on choose file and then find that file in your computer and select it.

attachimg=1 like this in brackets.
