How do you do that?

Asked by Scooby (10284points) November 4th, 2010

So, I’ve been on Fluther for some time now,& what eludes me is how do you add attachments to a thread without having to add the entire http address? Say I was to add a picture of my cat, so the word cat is highlighted in red, click on the word cat in red & see a picture of my cat! How do you do that?? I had to ask! :-/

You surround your text in “quotes”, add a colon, and paste the link. An example of the complete form can be found under the Style your text line under the answer box.

It took me forever and an entire thread and about 6 different jellies trying to explain it to me, but it finally sunk in how to do that. Now I add attachments a lot, just to show off.

You can also test drive your link in the blue preview area before you press the “answer” button to make sure it works. Took me about a week to get that down and now I’m like @chyna , I do it a lot to show off. This might help. hee hee couldn’t help myself.

Oh, good, I was about to post a long, detailed and probably boring explanation, and I probably would’ve left something out. Glad you got it!
