    Note: These directions are not specific to Popupportal. Almost all modern forum software follows this same method.

    You can not "upload" images directly to Popupportal, you must store your images on an image service like Flickr or PhotoBucket or one of many other images servers.

    Once you have uploaded your images to an imaging service, you may link individual images to your posts. Each of these services functions differently as to how they allow you to link to your images. Most has a screen that says "Link to it"' or "Photo URL". The link will always end with .jpg or .gif.

    Once you have the URL to the picture, in a new topic or a reply body, enter:

    [nobbc][​IMG][/nobbc]
    The trick to making this work is the [nobbc] [/nobbc] tags.

    Example using the Popupportal logo:

    [​IMG]

    What I entered was:
    [nobbc][​IMG][/nobbc]

    Its that simple.

    Re: How to post pictures in a topic - FROM FLICKR

    - FROM FLICKR -

    MAKE SURE your Flicker account is SHARED and not private.

    If you go to one of your photos on Flickr, like this one:

    http://www.flickr.com/photos/18835909@N02/8634722455/#in/photostream

    You will see just above the phote a button labeled "Share". Click that and at the bottom on the drop-down, click "Grab the HTML/BBCode".

    At the bottom of the drop-down, you will now see two buttons labeled "HTML" and "BBCode", click on "BBCode". Now right-click on the code in the middle of the drop-down and copy it into your paste buffer.

    Return to your post on PUP and paste into your text.

    When you save your post, it will look like this:

    Here's my photo:

    Unfortunately, Flickr add a bunch of crap to the BBCode that creates a link back to the same photo on their website but also shows the photo's title that you gave it when you uploaded it to Flickr. All that is really needed is:

    Here's my photo:

    Remember, hold your smart phone on its side when taking a photo.

    Some iPhone owners may have noticed that photos taken with the Apple iOS device and stored to the camera roll appear rotated when viewed on a Windows computer. The photos appear fine on the iPhone, however after being transferred to Windows they are upside down, or turned sideways.

    It appears that something in the photo metadata is being written to tell Windows the photo is oriented in one direction. Now that iOS 5 allows users to snap photos with the volume buttons, many people hold the iPhone with the volume buttons up so they act as a shutter release.

    Unfortunately, this is the direction in which the iPhone takes upside down photos. To solve the problem, the iPhone must be turned with the volume buttons facing down. Until Apple comes up with a fix, Windows users will have to adjust their photo rotation after the fact or keep the iPhone in this position. Turning rotation lock on or off does not fix the problem.​
