View Full Version : Album Image managment within CG

04-23-2010, 02:17 AM
Ok, I see some of us using signature links to share their finished works but not all of those go to their album. Obviously, if you have a website or your image is hosted someplace other than CG that makes sense.

In trying to set up an album for all my challenge submittal entries I seem to be having problems. Bottom line what is the best way to do this? The attachment pop up doesn't like to cooperate very well with me on this.

I checked the Sticky by RobA in the General Thread but his sig links don't seem to be working so I have no confidence that following it will work for me either :)

At this point I'm wondering if I did something funky with my browser that is throwing me off.

Any ideas or direction would be appreciated.

The links that I use in my sig are actually special forum searches (in essence). RobA had posted how to do it a few weeks after the forum change. I can't find the post but if you want to do the same thing then just hover your pointer over the link, look at the bottom left of the screen, write down the link, then change the number to your number...mine is 2345 your is 16653. To find your number just hover your mouse over your name.

Thanks Ascension. If you happen to run Firebug on Firefox you it allows one to click on an element and see the exact code. Much easier than writing down that long line of characters.

Anyway, for the rest of yas who want to add links to your sig:

1. Get your number by hovering over your name over on the left corner of a post. Your number will be seen at the bottom in the status line of your browser.
1a. Replace all the XXXXX with your number when using the below.
2. Finished map Code: http://www.cartographersguild.com/search.php?do=finduser&u=XXXXX&starteronly=1&forumchoice[]=36&contenttype=vBForum_Post
3. Challenge Maps code: http://www.cartographersguild.com/search.php?do=finduser&u=XXXXX&starteronly=1&forumchoice[]=59&contenttype=vBForum_Post

There you have it folks, for any of you who are as I once was.

Of course, now I have to come up with something because my links look almost exactly as yours do and that just won't do. Not that there is anything wrong with yours but they are yours and I need my own style if it's possible :) I'll think on it.
