Default Posting an Album Pic WITH Comments

Keeping pics in your talkFestool personal album is an excellent way of quickly using them in a post. But wouldn't it be nice to include the pic AND a description?

Here is a relatively simple way of creating and saving the pic AND the description. Work through it once and you'll see how easy it is.

Regards,

Dan.

To set this up for a pic:

1) Save a pic in your album.

2) Copy the "BB Code" link at the bottom of the pic.

3) In the "Comment" box at the bottom, paste the just-copied BB Code link. It will look like this:
Quote:
[IMG]http://www.talkfestool.com/vb/picture.php?albumid=2&pictureid=2[/IMG]
4) IMPORTANT - Wrap the link with [noparse] tags. I.e., just type "[noparse]" at the begging of the link and "[/noparse]" at the end of the link. With the "[noparse]" tags, your link now looks like this:
Quote:
[noparse][IMG]http://www.talkfestool.com/vb/picture.php?albumid=2&pictureid=2[/IMG][/noparse]
5) Add descriptive text, smilies, links to other pages, and anything else to give a nice complete description. Here's a completely formatted comment:

The MFK700 is a VERY interesting trim router! Light, maneuverable, and stable. I took this pic in Henderson, NV at the training there. It shows the underside of the MFK700:

5) After you are finished editing the comment, click the "Post Comment" button at the bottom right of the Comment box. The comment will now look like this. Note that the "[noparse]" tags no longer show up:

To use this in a post - Simply navigate to the pic and copy the comment. Now paste the comment text into your post. After you save the post, it will look like this:
