What's up guys! There have been several questions about how to do certain things on the board, and some of us may feel weird asking how to do them. It's cool, we've all been there. The "things" that I speak of, consist of embedding youtube videos, changing profile avatars, updating signatures, etc.

I will just give you guys the basics, and leave the questions up to you. Cool? Thought so...so here we go laugh.gif....

I will start with embedding youtube videos, since this seems to chap everybody's ass (mine included before I learned how to do it).

Video Embedding:
When Im on the board, I usually have about 4 or 5 tabs open anyway (nerd), but that's just me.

1. When you're on youtube and you see a video that you want to post...simply "right-click" the url address at the TOP of the screen, where you would usually see a url address, and click "copy" when the options open.

2. Go back to the fighthype board, as if you're getting ready to post or reply, and click the "play" button, which is two icons to the right of the "smiley face" dropbox.

3. Two brackets with the word video in them, should appear directly beside each other.

It should look like this before you post it...

Avatar and Signature Updates:
Okay, so this can get real tricky, and ass-chapping...dont worry, I can help with that. NOW, before I get started, these instructions are coming from a photobucket standpoint, so if you use image shack and so forth...hopefully the directions are similar.

1. On the front page of the board, I go to the top right-hand corner, and click My Controls, which is near the New Messages link.
2. Upon entering the "welcome to your control panel" page, look the left and scroll down to "Personal Profile" and click "Edit Avatar Settings"
3. On that page, you should see "Enter a URL to an online avatar image" and a blank field next to it, this is where your image url will be pasted (REMEMBER THIS).
4. NOW, I open another tab on my browser, and go to www.photobucket.com (my preference), and type in whatever you're looking for...in the search bar to the right at the top of the page.
5. As an example, I typed in "boxing gloves" and several images came up, which looked like this:


6. If you point your mouse at the image, a drop box will appear immediately. There are 4 fields that appear and it looks like this...


The only two fields that you should concern yourself with, are:

Direct Link and IMG Code

When you "click" on these fields, the word "copied" should appear.

7. Avatar update:
Refer to Step 3 (above), find an image that like on photobucket, and select DIRECT LINK. This is used for avatars ONLY. Right Click and "paste" the direct link url that you copied from photobucket in the field. It should look like this...


8. Updating Signatures:
Refer to Steps 1 and 2, but instead of clicking "Edit Avatar Settings", click "edit Signature". Refer to Step 6 when you find an image on photobucket, but this time, you should select the last field, which is IMG Code.

You can use these IMG Code for posting pictures on the board, and so forth. ONLY the IMG Code will work for pictures, gifs, etc. Let's make sure that the pictures, gifs, etc aren't too big, so they wont kill the page bandwith.

Actually, prolly a dumb question.. how can I reduce the size of my pic? I mean this thing seriously takes up page room..haha

Not a dumb question at all. Actually, wherever you uploaded it, you can go back there and resize it. Do you have an account at the location that you uploaded it?

Looks like they made some updates on the site (photobucket), so this is what I got from it...


Just click the edit button on your photo...


Im guessing that you can adjust this bar at the top left corner. Then click save a copy (which will still keep an old copy of the pic) or save and replace. I'd go with "save a copy" just to be safe.

Hope this helps...

Yes, you can add pictures from your computer's hard drive:

 

1.) On the right-side of your computer is a button called "More Reply Options" click on that.

2.) You can than type your text, and than click on "Upload File."  Pictures are usually called JPEG files

3.) Depending on how your computer is set up, you will be taken to your 'Downloads" folder.  This is a folder where all the stuff you download from the Internet goes.  If you know what you want to post is a picture and you have stored it in a different folder, click on the "Browse" button and find your folder with the picture that you want to upload.

4.) Click the OK or Upload button shown.

5.) The forum software may resize the image.  If the picture makes the rest of the forum threads or posts stretch out we reserve the right to resize the photo so that the scrolling and moving on the forum works well

6.) The images should relate to boxing with a short summery of what they are about. (As little as one sentence is fine.) or MMA in the UFC section.

 

Rules and Guidelines for Posting Images Are The Following:

 

A.) They are not spam or porn.  No URL's or images may link to spam or porn, or to known virus/malware sites.

B.) They are not over-sized causing text or other functions to slow down the forum.

C.) No excessively violent images.

D.) No animal cruelty.

E.) At least one sentence is provided why you are uploading them to the site.

F.) Remember to give credit to the site when posting the link (i.e Credit, [sitename].com.)

G.) No one may ever link to PPV sites, or subscription services, or post live fight URL links on the boards. These actions violate copyright laws.

 

Any questions or problems with working with images or forum features, send any moderator staff member a PM. Thanks!
