How do I add multiple pictures to my post

Post by 6Pipes »

I can add one picture with no trouble but when I go back to the gallery for the second one, I lose my post and have to start over. What am I doing wrong?

You have to add each picture separately. Make a post, add a picture, save your post, go back and edit.
OR: You can save the picture links in a separate word document or on a notepad. Then edit your post and copy and paste all the picture links. Sounds too difficult? :o It isn't. 8) It's just my description. :-)

Personally I find it fastest and easiest to use an online photo service - Smugmug in my case. I upload my photos into galleries there, get links to the photos, paste the links into my posts with the "Img" tag. As Mike says, sounds fiddly, but once you do it a few times, it gets fast.

The only reason, I don't like using outside photo services for a web-site is: If you or somebody else decides to do something with the photos in the hosting spot, they disappear in the posts. As long as you link to photos in the forum galleries, they remain with the site.

Yes, I absolutely agree, it is better for the knowledge base to upload them here. I wish it were a bit less fiddly, not much I can do about it.
