Insert Image , Smilies?

Post by Doctor Watson » Thursday 15th April 2021 11:49am

Hi Cogier.
This must look like a silly question, that's why I put it here with the beginners.
How exactly do I put an image in a post? (namely one of my keyboard, so you can compare it with yours)
The editor says : "insert image: [img]http .....[/image] Do I need to refer to web page ??
Can't I just copy&paste one?
The same goes for Smilies. ??
I would include here the Smiley 'Embarrassed" but .......

When you are writing your post, look down the page.

Select Attachments > Add Files then select a file to insert... :)

Steve explains it well. I usually put the image up on another site and point to it with Insert Image. So you can do this in 2 ways, providing you have webspace somewhere else. The smiles are limited to what is there unless you use the above option. The 'Embarrassed' icon is 12th Smile :oops:.

Right. That simple. Once you know it. ;)
Thanks again Steve.

Cogier, as you will notice on my keyboard the 'Return' key and 'Enter' key are both named 'Enter'.
That's why I kept looking at Key.Enter and not getting the result I wanted.

Yes mine is the same. I just wanted to point out how Gambas treats them, I have no idea which is correct.

If at first you don't succeed , try it differently.

I should think so after that! You'll need the [Esc] key then?
