    The Gallery allows you to create your own photo albums.

    To get to the gallery, click on the media tab

    upload_2018-2-13_21-52-22.png

    If you haven't used the gallery before you will be asked to either add media to a category or an album.
    Select Album

    upload_2018-2-13_21-54-38.png

    Select An album

    Then click on Create an album

    upload_2018-2-13_21-55-45.png

    Give your album a name - I used "Paul_l Pics"

    In the People who may ...... section Change the View Media to Members only, and leave Add media to album to Owner only.
    This has the effect of allowing registered members to view your album, but only you can load images into your album.

    Click Create Album

    Paul,

    Do we need to use a specific web browser to add pictures to posts?

    Hi Paul

    Where is my existing photo gallery or has that not been passed over to the new site?

    Cheers

    Richard

    Hi Richard,

    Your old photo gallery is here:

    http://platform1mrc.com/p1mrc/data/converted_files/gallery/126/

    You will see a list of files to click on.

    The ones showing a size of 3.0K are ones which you have deleted at some time in the past.

    You could copy the others manually to your new Media Album(s). Or Toto and Paul may be intending to provide an automatic function to do that.

    regards,

    Martin.

    If I just want to add one photo, do I have to create an album first? Looks like the image icon is for getting an image from a website.

    Hi Sol,

    No, if you just want to add a photo to a post, click the blue Upload a File button below the post editor. You can add several and insert them within the text.

    It is nothing to do with the Media Gallery, just ordinary post attachments. Not all XenForo installations include the Media Gallery (which is an extra-cost add-on).

    cheers,

    Martin.

    You are typing in the post editor. You have already just posted an image attachment.

    To create an album, click Choose an Album, type in a name for it, then Create an Album.

    cheers,

    Martin.

    After they are inserted, you can move them

    penny_washer_clamp.png

    around and type in between them.

    undercut_dull_top1.jpg

    Just put the caret at the right edge of them and press Enter to create blank lines between them.

    They get inserted at wherever you have the caret.

    It's the same on any forum. You always create some blank space of 3 lines first, then put the caret in the middle line, then insert your image.

    cheers,

    Martin.
