Weird problem with images, emoticons and videos

Post by Zordon on September 23rd 2010, 1:04 pm

When I post an image, emoticon or video in my forum always the codes go to the end of the page, instead of the line I am writing. Any ideas of how I can fix that?

what do you mean they are going across the subject box in a longer line?

Other then that can you post a couple screen shots.

Hold on. Don't lock it just yet.

Zordon, are you talking about when you click one of the editing buttons to add the code for like bold, colouring the text, centering it, etc?

If that's the case, it's not that hard to fix. Just retype it or copy/paste it where you need it. WYSIWYG is, from what I hear, a very bad setup for Forums. I'm not sure, though.

I will admit, it's very annoying to have to do it every time you need the code, but it gets to be second nature after a while. It's even easier if you memorize the tags for it.

Well I know how to write the codes, but most members don't. Now with this option on, what I do in a preview post is the wanting result. It was very annoying with the images and the videos before. I had to go to the end of my text and copy again the link and move it to where I wanted. Now from the beginning it goes to where it should be. So the problem was with the buttons, they were sending the images/videos to the end of the post. Only if I was writting them bymyself they were ok. But most members are down of 20 years old and have no idea about that stuff. So I had to fix it, now it's ok

I'm only nineteen and I know almost all the codes those editing buttons put into the post.

Like I said, moving it like that becomes second nature if you spend enough time on your Forum as I do. I'm on my Forum every day, making it look better, adding images, replying to other people's posts, etc. It's second nature to me now.

Well in my forum, a very big percentage of the members don't even know the basics. Most of them know to use only the buttons. So since they weren't working correct, I had complaints from them so I had to fix it. Not all are like you unfortunatelly

I didn't mean to insult you if that's what you understood. I am just saying how unfamiliar kids are in Greece with forum codes. You don't see forums with thousand members like in other countries. So most members don't have so much experience, or they get it in older age. Me for example at the age of 22 I began to talk in forums and learn codes. Well done for having so much knowledge at 19. Anyway it was pretty weird that if WYSIWYG mode was off the posted picture or video was going to the end of the page and not in the correct line. With on the code goes where you have clicked with your mouse.
