    Facebook

    Can we use a Facebook URL for posting pictures. I tried it and it did not work. I am pretty I did it correctly.

    Thanks

Let me try one:



    Okay, I can see that (how do I know I can see it before I've posted this? I clicked "Preview Post"; I use that a lot), but the image is cached in my browser. The question is whether anyone else can see it. I'll post this, clear my cache, log out of Facebook, quit my browser, and see what I can see.

    EDIT: Yeah, I can still see it. So it seems like linking from Facebook works.

    Confusion reigns!

    I use photobucket as my photo sharing website and it works with other sites, such as advrider which has the yellow mountain icon to link photobucket photos to the message I'm creating on advrider. But the instructions in the link to the first posting in this thread gives the instruction to use the yellow mountain icon (that works with advrider.com), but that icon is not present, that I can see, when I'm trying to create an ad in the MOA website. Am I missing something? Thanks.

    This is a newer version of VB so- you would use the image that looks like a framed picture.....just to the left of the image that looks like a piece of "film". I'm not sure on what you mean by "ad" on the site here. If it's something that is an ad, the place for that to appear is in the Members Opportunities section. If you need help- let me know.

    Thanks,

    I am speaking of placing flea market ads. Photobucket is able to link a photo when I'm creating an ad in advrider, by using the yellow mountain icon but that apparently isn't how photos in moa flea market ads are added. I'll continue looking for a solution. Thanks.
    p.s. market opportunities forum doesn't have anything that I find helpful.

    The idea of the "mountain" icon might be outdated for an older version of the forum software. Currently, if you want to add a picture to a post in the forum, you use the paperclip icon at the top of the post composing window.

    But in the Flea Market, it appears it's different. The Flea Market is a custom add-on and is not necessarily related to the forum. It appears that as you create your ad for the Flea Market, you use the feature to browse for a photo on your computer and then upload the photo per the instructions. I don't know that there's a way to link a photo from another on-line photo sharing website. If you have the photos in a specific area within your photos on that website, you can put in the URL to that folder and the shoppers will be able to click on your link and see your photos. Some people tend to do that...upload one photo but provide a link to see additional photos if interested.

    I'm not that savvy with those photo sharing sites...I know they have buttons to click on that develops a URL for that specific photo which then you can paste into messages...maybe you can do it that way. Typically, those URLs will start with "[img]" and end with "[/img]" (without the quotes) and in the middle is the web address for the photor.

    Yes, the flea market is a whole separate end of things. As Kurt mentioned, you will have to feel your way on through. OM
