Default Using the WYSWYG Editor

The WYSWYG editor is very easy to use, but it may be new to some folks.

For a quick review of the editor, try this: https://www.vbulletin-setup.com/wysiwyg/. Just mouse-over to get an explanation.

Additional tips:

- The bold, Italics, and Underline controls have keyboard shortcuts. For bold click <ctrl> + b, for Italics click <ctrl> + i, for Underline click <ctrl> + u. To reverse any of these, repeat the keystroke.

- One nice feature is the ability to control the size of the edit window. In the upper right corner are a set of two up arrows and two down arrows. Click these to increase or decrease the height of the editing window.

Have fun,

Dan.

Cool

I had selected that as my default but haven't really played with it yet.

I see the insert image wants a url, not a disk location as we're used to.



But the Insert Attachment does do what we are used to.

And if you play with both of them, you can put the image where you want.

I'm going to try the picture thingy again with a picture in my gallery.



Looks like it works easily. Just copy picture address from the gallery and use the Insert Image from the bottom row. Paste the address and presto!

Michael,
What Qwas is referring to in his statement as a "gallery" is in fact an Album, each of us are able to create and share them with others. Found in the User CP......
If you visit someones profile and they have an album or albums, you are able to browse them. I know Dan has a album check out his profile (click on his user name/ Avatar) and browse his Album. I now prefer this method to having a gallery (just my opinion)

Michael,

Once a pic is uploaded to an album, it's trivial to use the pic. Just navigate to the pic, click the thumbnail to maximize it, then copy the text in the the BB Code box, and paste in your post.

Below is an example.

Regards,

Dan.

I tried copying from the BB code box and the url box. For some reason, it is not recognized by the Mac as something to copy. I don't know why but it hasn't been a big worry at the moment.

That's because it's easy on the Mac. When you get to the big picture just Control Click on the picture and you'll get a box with a handful of options choose Copy Image Address and then it's in your clipboard ready to paste in your post.

Ha, thanks Michael. That's what I did yesterday during my marathon session to get caught up on adding posts.

Works like a champ.
