FAQ for 4 Wheels Trip Report Forum
Ride Tales, Reports, Stories etc can all be posted here.
IF you have a LONG story, e.g. Around the World, you might prefer to use the blogs as they are more sophisticated, with signups for new entry system, unlimited photos and more. 4 Wheels section will open when we have an entry!
Shorter stories on just about any ride of interest to Adventure Travellers is perfect here!
If you just want to post a LINK to your report - please see the Links page, where you can request a link to your site. No links only here please.
How do I post a picture?
When you respond to a post OR create a new thread, you will get a dialogue box to enter your text.
There are two ways to insert a picture:
1. In the dialogue box, one of the icons, as well as the usual B for bold, I for italics etc, is one that looks like a mountain picture on a postcard - click it and "Please enter the URL of your image" pops up. Enter the url of where the image is – we like: Picasa,YouTube (Google), Flickr (Yahoo!), photobucket, Picturetown (Nikon), or your own website etc, click ok, and it will show in the post.
If the picture already exists on the web this is the easy way to do it - and saves us expensive bandwidth and server space.
2. In the dialogue box, one of the icons on the top row is a paper-clip - the usual icon for attachments. Click it and a "Manage Attachments" dialogue pops up. (Make sure you don't have pop-up blockers on for HU - we only use pop-ups where needed and don't use them for ads - so please "whitelist" or "trust" HU to make sure these popups work). Fill in the dialogue box as needed, noting carefully the restrictions on file size and pixel dimensions. You can upload pictures both from your own computer or from the web.
Remember YOU have a limited amount of server space reserved for your use: If you are registered to post, you can upload a total of 200k of pictures, currently for Contributing Members the limit is 10 MB, and for Gold Members the limit is 25 MB.
For more on the levels for Members, Contributing Members and Gold Members etc, see here:
NOTE: We don't restrict storage for pictures on the Travellers Stories (blogs), so if you have hundreds or thousands of great pics, ask us about a blog!
How do I Post (Embed) video?
You can "embed" or "put in your post" YouTube video. When you create a new post, all you have to do is enter the YouTube code,
Then select that, and click the YouTube icon on the toolbar. That's it!
