PHOTO GALLERY DIRECTIONS
to add pics, go to this forum, then hit NEW IMAGE , then its the same as a regular post but click the link near the bottom that says Image Manager and that brings up the upload box. click "Choose file" to add your picture, then click "add file", it takes a minute to upload the file after you hit ADD FILE. then click DONE ADDING FILES when you have added all your files.
Make sure you hit "add file" after you have selected the file. It kind of seems like a second step for the same thing. Once you browse to find your file, and select it, it seems like you are done and have chosen the file. But you still have to hit the "add file" button. For each image...
Here's another set of directions written by one more knowledgeable than i
Using Gallery Forums
Using Gallery Forums are just like using any other forums... However, you can post images too!
After you create your post (subject and post, both required) you can click on the "Image Manager" link. Users may add up to however many images you signify in your setting (default of 3).
Adding images are as easy as:
1. Click "Browse" and a navigation area will appear that shows your computers files, navigate around to locate the image you'd like to upload. Once located, click on the image and select "open"; you can also choose to add a description (note that in v7.2 you do not have the option to change the description once another image is added).
2. If you wish to add another image, repeat step one, otherwise select "done". Otherwise, select "done".
From here, just press submit, and your new "Gallery Posting" should appear for users to comment on your image(s).
If you have trouble, you may have to go into your browser security settings and allow 'temporary pop-ups" .
