    What is the easiest way to add photos (from iPhone)? Looked up in reference, but came to crib sheet notes that led to invalid link. Thanks for your help!

    Have you tried clicking the 'attach images' link at the bottom of the posting box? That'll usually do the trick, though an incompatibility with Apple sometimes rotates the images incorrectly . . . but more often than not, they seem to orient correctly. I hope that helps. Please let us know if you need more information.

    Thanks,

    Thank you Ronnie! I think it worked, just posted about Hanbun and for the first time, included photos in my post. I thought, reading the previous photo questions, that it was much more complicated. Now, if you could explain how to reference a previous thread. You will see when I refer to a previous Jefe post in an earlier thread, it looks cumbersome. I know there is a way to do this, just not sure how...
    Thanks again.

    There is a "quotation" symbol directly below each post--click that and it will copy the whole post, from which I delete out what I don't want to use. There may be a quicker way to do that but that's what I typically do. And great post on Hanbun--been meaning to get a group together to do the dinner--and thinking I need to get on that before they're booked for the whole year!!

    From your post on Hanbun, it looks like you understand the quotation feature. I think you’re asking how to insert a clickable link to an earlier post (like my link to your Hanbun post in the previous sentence).

    Here’s what you wrote:

    Code: Select all
    Without Jefe’s May 2016 post, we never would have discovered this place.
    [url]http://www.lthforum.com/bb/viewtopic.php?p=510153#p510153[/url]

    ...and it shows up like this:

    Without Jefe’s May 2016 post, we never would have discovered this place.
    http://www.lthforum.com/bb/viewtopic.php?p=510153#p510153

    If instead you write:

    Code: Select all
    Without [url=http://www.lthforum.com/bb/viewtopic.php?p=510153#p510153]Jefe’s May 2016 post[/url], we never would have discovered this place.

    …it would show up like this:

    Without Jefe’s May 2016 post, we never would have discovered this place.

    You just add the “url=” and “/url” (in brackets), flanking the word(s) you want to turn into a clickable link.

    One last thing… If you want to reproduce something that someone did in a post, but aren't sure how, just click the "quote button" under that post and you'll see the raw BBCode. You can find more information in the BBCode Guide.

    Hope that’s what you wanted to know. If we didn't fully answer your question, don’t hesitate to ask again.

    And thanks for your Hanbun post, and for going to the trouble of posting photos.

    I was trying to add a photo from my iPhone and it came out sideways. I sent photo from phone to my desktop and it shows as vertical in both places.
    I read in another thread about "posting pictures" that someone else had this issue. Is there a way to rotate photo so it won't be sideways if I add to post? This photo is nothing exciting (corn), but I have a big trip coming up and I want to be confident that I can post some of the photos I will take.
    Thanks for any suggestions.

    Unfortunately, we have not been able to solve this seemingly random occurrence. Sometimes pics posted directly from phones display correctly and other times they do not. Neither our software provider nor Apple will take ownership of this problem, so we're pretty at the mercy of the fates.

    We definitely want you to post images (from your trip) -- and not be inconvenienced by doing so. So, if you post images that display incorrectly, please just PM me (from the post in question if possible) and I or one of the other Moderators will do what we can to remedy the images asap.

    Thanks!

    Thanks Ronnie. I have posted photos before, thanks to your help. I took this photo at Casey's for the Mirai Corn thread. I was going to add it to my post because it had cost info.
    I will get help after our river cruise if this happens again. Thanks!

    No problem. I went ahead and placed the shot in your post on the Mirai Corn thread.

    Thanks!

    Has anyone figured out a workaround for posting pics from an iphone. I used to be able to do it easily--now, no matter what size I make the pic, it says it can't load it. Definitely a bummer.

    I've had similar problems. Uploading first to another site such as Flickr has been the only way I've been able to upload.

    Yeah...not doing that. Sigh.

    Joel,

    That's a great workaround, and one I hope iPhone users will take advantage of. I use a similar program called Photo & Picture Resizer on my Android phone with great success.
