Videos and photos can be displayed on our forum quite simply! If your photo is less than 150kb just simply upload it to your posting as an attachment when composing. If your photo is larger than 150kb or if you wish to share a video you will need to have the content hosted somewhere off site, such as photobucket, flickr, youtube or vimeo.
Once stored all you need is the item’s ID #. For example Thomas Dehaene has a video on Vimeo - http://vimeo.com/3662135 - To share this video simply grab the unique ID from the end of the URL - 3662135. Use this unique ID with the associated media application link presented as a option when composing new messages (in this case Vimeo) and you will end up with the following code:
When inserted into a thread the code results in this:
John Z - OR
Further to that comment, when using images that have been hosted by Flickr be sure to use the static image link!
This can be found by clicking on the photo you wish to post, clicking on “all sizes” (above the photo) and looking below the image for the static image link, it looks like this:
(notice the static.flickr domain)
When properly bracketed in the img tags it looks like this!
