Introduction

As I was looking at Jame's Guide Writing Guide I noticed a lot of questions about images and why they weren't working and such. To me, it seemed that Jame was doing his best to answer all the questions but it looked very frustrating to keep answering the same question over and over again So, I have decided to write a focused guide on images only, to help those you are having trouble (just like I did, as a matter a fact) Smiling.


Guide

So you've decided to write a guide that will be awesome ...at least it would have been if you get those GOD-BEEPIN IMAGES TO JUST UPLOAD ON THE BEEPIN BEEPIN WEBSITE. Well first things first, you need a picture, once you have that go down to the bottom of the screen and click File attachments then click browse and find your picture. After you have done this you have to copy the html code that is under your picture. Once this is done you click the icon for adding pictures on your text formatting toolbar or you type in [ img] your.link.goes.here [/ img] (without the spaces). and click preview. But then something happens. This shows up instead of your picture:

[img]http://wow-pro.com/files/Image'Guide.JPG[/img]

In order to fix this you need to go back to your picture file and rename it without any special characters or spaces. So it looks more like this:

[img]http://wow-pro.com/files/ImageGuide.JPG[/ img] (without the space).

Then once that is done you have to Submit your guide (still as work in progress) first then go back to your draft and hit Preview and your picture should be up.

That is really all there is to it Sticking out tongue!

It was a little wierd for me

The "File Attachment" link didn't appear when I was editing, but suddenly showed up when I went ot preview it. Once I uploaded a file, the option was always there.

Another frequent mistake I

Another frequent mistake I see is that your image will NOT SHOW UP if you just click "preview" when you first upload it. The image doesn't actually upload until you click "Save" the first time. So if your image doesn't show up at first, that could very well be the reason.
