I've read the instructions in the "How To" section ...

I wasn't quite sure - can I include an image if it is on my hard drive only, or does it need to be able to be pointed to with a http://www.XYZ.com kind of thing?

Thanks :-)

It has to be uploaded to a site.

You can try some free ones like http://www.photobucket.com. Once you upload the image they will provide you with URL's that you can use to post the image on the message board...

Actually, you can post any image from on the web that has a URL. Unless they have it protected of course.

And you can post images from your HD by attaching them using the "upload attachment" box below the message box.

I don't like doing it that way because it doesn't look as clean though. See example.

Yeah, but like I said, it sucks. Posting photos from websites looks much better, imo.

You are right not nearly as crisp.

:lol:

What I don't like is that it puts that "attachment" frame around the image. But every board software I've ever seen that allows photo uploads does that.

Hi - does the above advice apply to videos ("just put in the url"), or is it only for pics? There's a bunch of links to nfl.com videos I just posted from the Ravens game, it would have been nice to have an actual picture you could click on, but I didn't know how to do that.

Thanks!

From what I can tell, it doesn't look like NFL.com allows embedding of video like youtube does.

Correct... stanza was officially "warned" about it... ESPN and Youtube clips can be done as per the "how to" tips... Other than that, I don't think there is any option...

Yup, I sure was :oops:

So I now borrow from the Trib, KDKA, and CBS and then encode them for youtube. It would be much easier if all these sites just allowed embedding their videos like ESPN and youtube. Wouldn't more exposure be good for these sites? When J put that training camp video of Timmons on the front of the site the video got over 1k hits in 2 weeks...that's insane. Guess they don't want to market their sites. For that I can give them one of these for free :moon

I was wondering how you put up the NFL.com stuff. I didn't see any code for embedding and that's what I actually meant by them not allowing it.

I didn't know you could encode it yourself...and then get your hand slapped by the NFL! :lol:

So...




wait for it...





trust me...





it'll be worth it...






big payoff coming...






believe me...





you're gonna like it...





I hope you're ready...






here it comes...





Was the NFL making poking at you? :D :D :D :D
