How to insert and align images and attach documents in your post.


INSERTING IMAGES 

If the image is already on another webpage, you can click the "image icon" on the post-reply toolbar and simply paste the URL of the image in the field. 

 then  

However, if the image you want to post is not yet on the web, then you need to first UPLOAD it to your post by clicking ADD ATTACHMENTS at the bottom of the post-reply window, selecting CHOOSE FILES and locating it on your computer.

 then   

Once you upload an image, you will see an option to "insert" the image into your post. Click "insert all images." This will place the image in the text where your CURSOR is located. You can move it from there by dragging it.



ALIGNING YOUR IMAGE OR TEXT

After inserting the image, you can also control how it ALIGNS in relation to your text (how the text word-wraps around the image).  To align and image, click the image to select it, then select FORMAT ⇒ ALIGNMENT ⇒ and CENTER or RIGHT (we don't recommend "left")  You can also just move the image to its own line so text doesn't oddly word-wrap around it.  Note: The Alignment option can also be used to align text either left, centered, or right-justified.



Tip:  Moving the image to a new location in your post is a bit tricky. 

I've found that the BEST WAY is to highlight the image with your mouse, then "cut" it using CTRL-X.  This removes the image from the page but KEEPS it on your computer's invisible "pasteboard." Then position your cursor exactly where you want the image to appear in your text, and select CTRL-V to "paste" it into place. Then you can highlight it again to apply some alignment if needed.

Inserting or "Embedding" YouTube Videos into Your Post

You can simply copy a YouTube address and paste it into your Post-Reply window as a plain link text so people can click on it to open YouTube and see the video.

Or...  You can easily "embed" the video's "iframe" code into your post to make the video playable within your post (like the video embedded at the end of this post).

The following looks like a lot of steps but it's intuitive and easy to learn, and it's really just a couple of "copy and paste" steps.

Here's how!

HOW TO COPY the "iframe" embed code from a YouTube video and "embed" it in your post so that the video appears within your post. 


1. Open the video in YouTube.

a. Click the SHARE option.


b. Click either COPY or EMBED. 

"Copy" will simply copy the video's URL to your clipboard which you can then paste in your post to create a plain link.

"Embed" will open up an option to get the video's "iframe" embed code. See the embed option below.

c. After clicking the Embed Tab, click COPY to copy the iframe Embed code.

You're now ready to paste the Video's "embed" code into your post

2. Click the INSERT MEDIA option on your Post-Reply Window Toolbar at Rotation.org.

3. Click the EMBED tab on the Insert Media window and paste the "iframe" code (which you copied from YouTube's share feature) into the field. Click "ok" and the video will now appear in your post!
