    Tags to insert an image

    Want to insert an image in the body of your post?
    Below is a quick guide - the text formatting I have used is for clarity only and not required.
    Note: inserted images will be included in the preview screen so you can check the tags work.
    - and please avoid adding unnecessarily large graphics!

    Re: Tags to insert an image

    I believe that this could be quite useful if we would like to include more than one image with the post, or inline with the post instead of at the end. However, do you have a method for including a locally-stored image as opposed to a web-stored image? Even given that anyone can get their own Geocities or other free web site, what would happen to an image-enhanced posting once the image was no longer located at the referenced location?

    I think is a matter of server storage space and finding a happy medium. If you allow multiple attachments / inserts and have a cap of 100K, how do you divide up the space? e.g. if you want to insert 11 pics at 10K, do you just show the first 10?
    I'm afraid there is no current method for storing additional graphics per post - you can refer to images within other posts but this is of limited value.
    If a non-existent graphic is referred to, you will get the standard box with a red X in its place.
    Where I have had to to show two pictures at once, I resorted to combining the two into a single graphic - I guess the only current alternative is multiple posts . . .

    I tried GeoCities, but many of our readers complained that they were getting the red X, I suspect porn filters were getting them because of all the yuk on GeoCities. You need a good space provider so you don't end up <IMG SRC=http://www.mtl.com/sam/images/mack.gif> --Sam
