zed240 posted a topic in Site & Forum MattersI'd love some help with uploading pictures to this new version of the SAB forums. Basically, I'd like to be able to upload them so they display in a similar way to how they used to. As small thumbnails which people can choose if they want to click on and load the larger image. You could choose to have these thumbnails display in a horizontal line next to each other, or make them display under each other. Old threads that were created in this way still seem to retain the same look and usability as they did previously, but I'm yet to see someone make a post/thread that behaves the same way since the forum was updated to a new version slightly earlier in 2016. See this link for an example of the "old style". You'll notice that the OP and another post has the old style where you can choose to enlarge the images or not, then the later posts made in August 2016 the images are the newer, large style. I prefer to be able to upload images as thumbnails that can be enlarged rather than as full sized images by default for a few reasons, including ease of reading posts with some detail that use pics to explain things, and not having to load full size images for every single picture before I can read the thread. Threads like the "What did you do to your cactus" and "Tricho flowers" threads will become huge and unwieldy to use and load each time. When you want to open it up (especially on mobile or slow connections), and just read the latest post every image in the thread is now downloaded in full. So for some new posts I'd like to make that require a number of pics to explain the gist of what I'm getting at I'd really like to be able to do it in the old way. So I can write a line or two, show a pic or two to explain what I'm taking about, then another line of text followed by the next picture/s and so on. Hopefully people understand what I'm getting at here..... BTW, I did try and add pics to the gallery first, thinking I could then insert them into a post as a thumbnail you can choose to enlarge or not, but I couldn't seem to make it work like that. It was still a large image or nothing. I'm hoping there is just something simple I'm missing that means this is still possible. Some guidance would be appreciated! Thanks, SABers! Zed
