Default Top Forum Tips! Adding photos and videos, and more!

As a photographer myself I like nothing better than to see your images from Spain.

There are three ways of using the forum to show us the pictures from your trips to Spain (for instructions of adding video, scroll down 2 posts!)

1. Attached to your post. When you start or reply to a new topic, look in the 'Additional Options' box at the bottom of the page and attach up to four images to your post. The images can be up to 800 x 600 pixels (for .jpg's) and 100 kb each in filesize, so you will probably have to do some resizng first. Options 2 or 3 below are better than this for posting your pics.

2. Via the NFS Flickr Group (best way!) The best way is to link to pictures stored elsewhere on-line, that way there are less limitations in terms of size, number etc. For that reason we have set up the Notes from Spain Flickr Group, a place for all of us to share our images of Spain. So, upload you images to Flickr, for free (just sign up and away you go), put them in the Notes from Spain Flickr Group (optional, of course!), and use the 'image' tag (mountains on yellow background icon, above post writing area) to link them into your forum posts. Just enter the location of the image - get this by right clicking on an image in Flickr and copying the link/image location.

That's it, your image will appear in the actual post, plus it will show up in the great new Flickr group as well! Just remember to keep the size you link to down, say 600 x 400 maximum, or they won't look good in the posts and may take ages to load. Here's an example of an image I've put in the group and linked to here (Madrid cab):



3. Link to your pics from somewhere else. You don't have to put your images in Flickr, we just think it will be more fun for all of us. You can put your images on your own server, anywhere you like on-line, then just link to them using the image tag method outlined above.

Hope that makes sense! Now show us your photos of Spain!

Default Top Forum Using Tips!

One of the most useful links on the forum is the * New Posts * link in the forum navigation bar above, that you see once you are logged in ("Today's Posts" if you are not).

Once you have had an initial look through the different parts of the forum, you will find that you only really need that link when you log in every day (or many times a day!) in order to see what's been going on since your last visit. If you are logged in you will also see the new posts link at the bottom of the forum in the lower navigation bar.

Do you have a forum using tip you'd like to share here?

Default Video on the Forum

We have made it possible to add video clips to forum posts, nothing dodgy please! At the moment you can add YouTube, Google Video, Revver and Guba videos, using the following instructions:

To add a YouTube Video

Go to the movie in question on the youtube.com page. You need the unique movie code at the end of the YouTube URL in your browser (the code after the "=" sign)

For example: http://youtube.com/watch?v=ZW2UyA9JwI4

...
gives us the code ZW2UyA9JwI4

You then add this code to a post between a special set of square brackets, as follows:

HTML Code:
[youtube]ZW2UyA9JwI4[/youtube]
... to give us, in this case, a random Spain video I found:




To add a Google Video

Go to the movie in question on the video.google.com page. You need the unique movie code after "http://video.google.com/googleplayer.swf?docId=" and before "&hl=en"

For example:

"http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=8446102146715722322&hl=en"

...gives us the code 8446102146715722322

You then add this code to a post between a special set of square brackets, as follows:

HTML Code:
[gv]8446102146715722322[/gv]
...which gives us the following video I shot in the retiro park:



¡Que Guay!

To Add a Revver video to the forum

Same system as above, but the tags are
HTML Code:
[revver]122915[/revver]
...using the number code for the revver video.

For example for the revver video url: http://one.revver.com/watch/122915, we take the number at the end - 122915 - and stick it between the revver tags, as seen in the code box above.

To add a Guba Video

Go to the movie in question on the guba.com page. You need the unique movie code at the end of the Guba URL in your browser.

For example: http://www.guba.com/watch/3000039191

...
gives us the code 3000039191

You then add this code to a post between a special set of square brackets, as follows:

HTML Code:
[guba]3000039191[/guba]
... to give us, in this case, a random Dog video I found:
