Pasting Articles on New Blitz


#1

We’ve noted a lot of comments regarding pasting articles on New Blitz. It appears that copying and pasting articles from other websites brings in a lot of code which counts towards total numbers characters allowed in a post.


There is a ‘Paste as Text’ button in the editing toolbar (picture below) which you can paste articles into, which will strip out all the extra formatting and should hopefully fix this character limit issue. Let me know any feedback, thanks.

Thanks Bloodstained Devil, I have got this far, BUT.

Dragged the images across but only shows the URL.

I will keep trying. The images come up when I click on the link but the size is all wrong.

An old fart like me needs to be nursed

Also ,as Dave said, you have to have a link that begins with htttp. … and ends in .jpg … or .gif … or whatever.

And one last thing, as Rolo pointed out to me earlier in this thread, after posting your post, you HAVE to refresh the page before you will see your posted image.


#4

Hmmm, haven’t actually tried the drag & drop from that site. don’t really see a reason why it wouldn’t.

I’ll check.

It has to be a direct link to a file – i.e. ending in .jpg or .gif or .whatever


#7

Yep works fine like that, … remember, you have to end up with a dark background on the page.

First this…

Click on image in the middle … and get this …

So, how do I start a thread in a Discussion e.g. want to start a thread on that soft tissue specialist, Ben Reid in the Non-Essendon discussion?

Also make sure before you upload the image there, the box says “Do not resize my image”, unless you want to do that, it has plenty of size options if you do.
