About us forum
You can now add images to posts on the Travelfish forum
We've just re-enabled the image posting code for posts on the Travelfish forum and you can see an example below.
The above was taken one evening on Nusa Lembongan and I've embedded it from the Travelfish Flickr pool here.
A simple post like the above is simple to do and I'll post the instructions below in two posts so that you know how it works.
We'd disabled this feature for a long time -- to be honest, I can't remember why -- but we hope you find it useful.

First up to post an image, it needs to be available somewhere else on the web (including Travelfish) -- you won't actually be uploading the image onto our server, rather you're linking to it at another location (called hotlinking). The above example is linked to an image on the Flickr page.
There are two ways to link an image, either using the styling images directly above, or doing it in code (I'll explain the latter further down).
You'll see above there are now six images and the second to last one is this:
You click on that and you'll see a pop-up that will ask for the URL of the image. In this example I'm going to embed the title image from our Indonesia page here. To get the image URL, you just right click on the image and select "Copy Image URL" (or something similar, the actual message will vary a little depending on which browser you use.
All you do is press the button, add a URL and the image should appear.
As you can see with the button image and the beach photo, just type away and click the image button when you get to where you want it to appear.
A couple of points to keep in mind.
* Please don't embed images larger than 600pixels or so wide as they'll stretch the page too wide and make it difficult to read.
* Please don't embed images you have no rights to.
* Please keep it clean
Next I'll cover how to do the same in the code view.

To do the same in "code view" you first need to click on the code button (the last one)
Then, to insert the image you enter the following:
[img]THE URL OF THE IMAGE[/img]
So if I wanted to link the image at this address:
I would just wrap the above in [img]and[/img]
