In progress private publications

Post by Nightfall October 16th 2020, 12:29 pm

Hello,

I would like to share title images and introductory texts to each topic on my forum. I had thought to use the "pubications" for this purpose. However, I just realised they are visible to the public - and this was not intended. Our forum is private, and I have permissions to use the images but only in this private circle.
Could you please help me with instructions how to make the publications private?
Many thanks!

Thank you! However, all I can change is who has permission to "create and edit". The light-green area, "view and read", can not be modified for some reason...

Thank you for the replies.
How can I make an html page? Is that something an inexperienced person can achieve?

Thank you,

I've tried that, and have three questions:
Where can the forum members find the html page?
Also, the text doesn't appear in paragraphs, although I had written it in paragraphs. But rather, it appears in one text body without any gaps. How do I solve that?
And, can't I insert photos?

Unfortunately, the sparklist-links do not open up.

When you create the html page choose the advanced mode
To create gap / line add this element <br/>
If you write it twice you will create two lines space

When you submit the html page you get a link url
so you must create a new customized menu (admin panel...display... homepage...headers) and insert that link html url to the redirection url field
Then fix the rights you want , the option is open


Can you put here those links please , just one for testing

Edit : to insert image use this
Code:
 <img src="YOUR IMAGE URL" />

Thank you, that was very helpful and most of it worked out well!

I haven't been able to insert the picture yet. Where to I find the "url" of my picture…?
I have attached a photo of my screen. What must I put in the other three fields, "Menu", "picture" and "text"?

Thank you very much for the help.

These are the links that didn't open up for me:
http://www.sparklist.com/resources/tools/htmltemplates-freecollection.html - Free HTML templates for newsletters, or homepages or announcements.

http://www.sparklist.com/resources/tools/htmlbasics.html - basic HTML codes and page includes link to HTML colour codes.

on the image, you want just right click with your mouse and copy the image address 

private publications Scre2201

those links are not opening for me also ..so its not our fault maybe a server issue on their side

Menu : ( Title)
Picture : (For navigation bars without text just image buttons , the image url... if you use text leave it blank)
Text : (text that will appear on the navigation bar)
Redirection Link : ( the HTML Page link )
Rights : (Check any group that is able to access this on the Navigation bar)
Rights : (You can choose if the navigation, if clicked, will open in a new window)

Please don't double post. Your posts need to be separated by 24 hours before bumping. Please use the edit button, instead!
Please read our forum rules: ESF General Rules

you will upload the image with the button we have in our editor and you will get the url

did you save the HTML page?

I clicked on "prerview", and a new window opened up. Then I went back to the other page and clicked "save", but it was gone.

Right. I did it all a second time.
However, I can not find the option to upload a picture from my files. I'd be very grateful for instructions!

Hello again!
I just saw that the graphic I inserted has underneath it the option to "share" on WhatsApp, Twitter etc.
I don't have permission to share it outside our private forum, so I need to get rid of the sharing-option. How can I do that?

this account is connecting with your personal information no one else can enter, so those images are uploaded to this account as your personal file
if you don't share the image , the image cannot be shared

Hi,
apologies for the late reply. All the help I received so far was really great! Thank you ver much.
I have still not succeeded in uploading a picture on the html page I created. I looked at the tutorial at https://help.forumotion.com/t10583-servimg-servimg-pro?highlight=servimg but didn't find instructions there regarding html pages.
If you can point me to the right direction, it would be greatly appreciated!

Hi,

souliki I'm not sure my attempts at sending you a private message were successful.
However, meanwhile, I was able to use <img src="YOUR IMAGE URL" /> to insert the picture from an online source. Is there a reason why this method is not recommendable?
I could not see any "image upload" button so this seemed the only option.
Of course I would prefer to use the picture from my own computer, since I don't know if the online source takes down the picture at some point.
I would therefore still be grateful to learn how to get the url of an image that is located on my computer.

Thank you very much!
PS souliki, I also found that the problem with the overlapping header in my navigation bar has resolved by itself.
