How To Photo Upload Step By Step Guide and Information


Updated for XenForo 1.2

The below guide will show you how to upload images and files into the editor in various places on the forum.

The easiest and most simple way is to drag and drop the required file into the editor


This will upload the image, and give you the option to insert either the thumbnail (600x600 pixels), or the full image.

The second option is using the built in Flash uploader, which is accessed via the Upload a File button


Clicking on that will open a new window where you can browse for multiple files to be uploaded at the same time


Select the image(s) you want to upload, and click Open.

This will upload the images to our server, and generate the thumbnail and full image which can be used in the thread.


You then click either Thumbnail or Full Image to insert the attachment where the cursor currently is in the editor window

Once you are done, click Create Thread to submit the thread.

I've also made some changes to the way the files are attached to posts if you are not inserting them in-line into a thread.

They now scale correctly based on the thumbnail size we have set (600 pixels)
