Hi all,

We have enabled the attachment function in the forum.
The size limit is 2MB each attachment and 3 attachments per post.
Supported file types are: gif, jpg, jpeg, pdf, png, txt

To upload files, simple expand the "Attachments and other options" part underneath the text box and select "Choose File".
The files are being uploaded once you hit the "Post" or "Preview" button.

There are still a few items that we will need to address and hope to keep this function on indefinitely, but cannot confirm that at this stage.

Of course, you can still use the Tapatalk app the usual way and upload pictures the same way as before as well as link pictures from your favourite picture host: http://forum.porsche-club-ireland.com/index.php?topic=6895.0

Thanks very much for doing this Pascal, it's hard to grasp for some like me first few times but once you get the hang it's a breeze. Maybe get a fellow PCI member who lives close to show you if you get stuck, or bring your device to a meet/event.

I use Google photos ( formerly Picassa I think ). One important thing there is to make the photo " share with public".

Thanks again.

Thanks Dave!
Google Photo sharing options are now updated.

While we do not support pictures to be uploaded directly onto the Forum, we fully support linking them in your posts.

Linking pictures in your posts is simple and the forum supports pictures located on Google Photos, Photobucket, Facebook or almost any other picture host.

There are a few points to note that we will cover below.
The main point is, that you need to make sure, you use the correct link for the picture to be visible in your posts.

Google Photos
1.   Login to your Google Photos account and select the folder that contains your picture(s) you would like to post

4.   Right-click the picture and select the Copy image address (Chrome and Safari) and Copy Image Location (Firefox)
5.   In the PCI forum go to the comment box where you have, or will, write your post and select the "mona lisa-icon" at the bottom left corner.


6.   Now paste the link you have copied in Google Photos between [im g] and [/ img ]
7.   You can select Preview to check if the picture you have posted will be visible before posting your content or Post to post your message and picture

Photobucket
1.   Login to your Photobucket account and select the folder that contains your picture(s) you would like to post

4.   Simple select and copy the link in the "IMG" field
