    Inserting links and pictures

    I've been asked to share a few tips on how to get the most out of this forum
    Please feel free to add any tips of your own.

    Posting links

    To direct someone to another post, the best way is to right click on a post number
    Then hit copy shortcut. Then go to where you want to post and right click and hit paste.

    By clicking on the post number when someone clicks the link it will take them right to that post.

    You can also go to the address bar at the top of the page , click it and hit copy, paste where you want the link to go.
    This will give the full link to a thread.

    Posting screen pics

    There are different ways to do this, but here's how I do it.
    First I installed the photo bucket app on my iPad.
    To take a screen pic on your iPad, hold your finger down on the home button, then press the power off button, and release when you hear the camera click.
    After this, go into photo bucket and follow these steps:

    1/ tap my albums
    2/ top right
    3/ photo library
    4/ camera roll
    5/ select the picture ( it will load)
    6/ my albums
    7/ tap the chain icon top right
    8/ select IMG code.
    It will say copied to clipboard. All you have to do then is past it into your post.


    As I said, there are many other ways to do this, but this way gives you a decent size pic, and the photo bucket app is free.
    It seems like a lot of steps, but once you've tried it a couple of times it's easy.
    Now go practice!

    Can I just add that if you use other sources for your pictures eg a URL then you just use the tools supplied on the forum.
    There is a URL linking tool (Green) which I mainly use to wrap or hide a URL for text.
    An example of this could be THIS picture.
    You can choose the word you want and highlight it then click the tool and direct link.
    By idevice tap and hold the text and select,then go to the tool (Green)

    When using a direct URL link you can also click the picture tool (red) and it will use the image HTML for you.

    When you want to use a YouTube link just use the YouTube URL and use the tool here (blue)
    Make sure it's the main YouTube link not the mobile version.
    You can get the link by choosing to "share" the link and pick email.
    It will open up your email with the link in it and just copy it.

    I know this isn't quite the topic but how do you make a poll? I tried once and I checked the poll box but it never gave me an option to add any choices and just posted as a block of text.

    I'm fairly new to the nuances of forums, especially on an iPad vs. a computer.

    Once you submit your post and choose the poll first,the poll option will show last.
    Seems a little wrong but that's how it works here.

    How's about one of my friends taking a screen shot of my spooky left side of my farm screen and post it for me. I have tried with no success! I give up! Have tried every option and advice. Must be some kind of malfunction in my phone. Please post my pic. Thanks Annmarie
