Another inline pic test post

  • Let's see if an offsite pic 1000 pixels wide can be included:

    Looks good here, but I can't get it to work on the real forum!!

  • Default font and size - Let's try a block of multicolored monospace font text:


    --- lead/former MT ------/---------/---\----------D--- Al sub
                              /-------/-/---\-\-------C--- LA #1 to CP Reservoir
    --- future Al sub -  D   / /---/---/-------\-\    B  - future LA sub
    --- Al    -----------C--/ /   /               \  
    --- LA #1 -----------B---/   /                 \   
    --- LA #2 -----------A------/-------------------\-A--- LA #2 to CP WO Tower

    This should be 12 point text.

    This should be 14 point text.

    This should be 10 point text.

    This should be 8 point text. Electron microscope optional ....

  • Here's a pic from a different site using Insert Media :

    --- doesn't work

    <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/mf_90000/6138495683/"> <img src="http://farm7.static.flickr.com/6157/6138495683_01c7a15a0c.jpg" width="500" height="385"></a>

    --- neither does html

    --- however, pasting in bbcode does!

  • Yet another inline post test from Flickr (1000px wide) using Insert Image:

    Unfortunately, the full size pic does Not display in another browser tab - it launches a Save or Open With dialog.   Grrrrr....

    Ok, how about a smaller photo, say 640 px wide which is the next smaller Flickr size:

    Nope, same result ......

    There appears to be something the forum software doesn't like about the Flickr URL .....

  • OK, now NOTHING WORKS!!

    Kalmbach, thanks for No Help.

    Back to trying shutterfly source with html editing .....

    Here's a super wide Google Picasa source the same way:

    All right!!

    For future reference, just edit html and insert the <img.x src.x="your url" /> between paragraph tags - leave out the .x .

  • Here's another 'Insert Image' button test with test slides on Photobucket:

    Rhetorical question to self - How does it look?

    Answer - Great - click on it yourself to see full size unmodified by Photobucket or this site!

  • Well, Flickr has muddled their interface to make copying a plain URL difficult. Will this work in HTML editor by inserting by href?

    Now, how about by their Embed function (iframe):

    <iframe src="https://www.flickr.com/photos/mf_90000/13832411584/in/photostream/player/" width="1024" height="768" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen webkitallowfullscreen mozallowfullscreen oallowfullscreen msallowfullscreen></iframe>

    Well, that doesn't work ... Angry

  • A followup test since Kalmbach has updated the Trains Mag but NOT this forum (trains.com).

    This image is linked from Photobucket.

    How about a video?

  • This is a simulation of a multi image link with text prep for trains.com posting:



    more text



    yet more text

    HOWEVER, I don't know if anything works differently when pasted into one of the 'new style' forums.
