Posting pictures and videos to the board

Postby Ridgerunner » Mon Jul 09, 2012 8:28 pm

In order to post pictures to the board, you will need to sign up to a media hosting website such as http://www.photobucket.com. The good thing is that it is completely FREE!!! Once you have signed up and have a screen name and password, you can start uploading pictures and short videos to your account on photobucket. When you have a picture or video that you want to share on this site, all you have to do is go to photobucket and find your picture. Move your cursor over the picture and a box of options will appear below the picture. Scroll your cursor down to the box that says "IMG thumbnail....." and LEFT click your mouse on that option. Your pictures URL has now been "copied". Next you want to paste it here so sign on to bplite.com and either start a new topic or reply to an existing topic. When you want to paste your picture or video in your thread, you just need to click your RIGHT mouse button to enable and option screen and select the "paste" option by clicking the LEFT mouse button on the word "paste". You will see the URL link appear in your thread. When you preview or post your thread, the thumbnail will appear in your post. If you want to post more than one picture or video, you can open both photobucket and bplite and just go back and forth until you complete your post. It is fairly simple once you have done it a couple times. If you have any questions, feel free to ask and we will try to walk you through it. ;)

Posting "youtube" videos:

You will need to sign up for a FREE account on http://www.youtube.com and aquire a screen name and password. Once you upload a video to youtube, it is pretty simple to add it in your posts here on bplite. First you will go to your account on youtube and select the video you want to share in your post by left clicking once. A button will appear below it named "share". Click the "share" button and a blue box will appear just below it with a youtube link that looks similar to this:
http://youtu.be/UAepBJt-_H You will need to copy EXACTLY the ten characters that come after the last slash. It is always TEN letters,numbers, or symbols. In this example, it would be UAepBJt-_H Now you will be able to insert your video on bplite by either selecting a new topic or replying to an existing topic on this site. When you want to add your youtube video to your post, you simply press the youtube box on the far right side of option boxes just above the smileys. You will see the following appear next in your post: [youtube][/youtube.] All you have to do is enter those EXACT TEN characters between the two boxes like this: [youtube]UAepBJt-_H [/youtube.] Your video is now ready to share once you submit your post.Good Luck!

Thank you! That will be a big help, now and forever :D I made it a "sticky" so it stays at the top of the threads ;)
