Title: New Forum Features!
Post by Hana Lima Ia on Jun 2nd, 2008 at 3:44pm
Hello all,
Welcome to the new forum!  Everything should look pretty familiar, but there are a number of new features that are worth taking a look at.

One exciting feature is the new "Insert Media" option.  If you find an interesting video on youtube it's easy to share on a post.  

Here is an example of a inserted video:

ukulele master Ohta-san performs HAWAII

To post your own video links:

1) Copy the URL to the video
and example URL would look like this:

2) Paste the video URL in your post then highlight or select it with your cursor and hit the "Insert Media" button:

3) The final post should look like this:


4) Try the "Preview" button and you should see this:
Ukulele Orchestra of GB - Shaft

Upload photos from your computer straight to the forum!

You may still use the "Insert Image" command as before.  This is the best way to post multiple images that are already online somewhere.  However, many free photo galleries do not allow images to be shown off of their site.  (This has to do with bandwith costs as it is expensive to serve up millions of images a month)

But now you can "Attach" photos to your posts!

Use the "Browse" button when you create a post or reply to upload a photo.  Only files with a .jpg .jpeg .gif .png .swf or .bmp  will be allowed as attachments.  There is currently a file limit of 150K per image.  You may upload only one photo per post or reply.

Lets see those ukes!
