How to Write a Travel Tale or Topic with Attached Images

Postby dheerajsharma14 » Mon May 20, 2013 8:11 am

I will try to describe below, how you can write your own Travel Tale about Himalayas and share it with other members of the community.

Step 1: Click on the respective forums to post your Travel Tales and Click "New Topic" icon on the top left corner of the forum index. In this case, "Share Your Himalayan Travel Experience --> Travel Tales from Himalayas"

Step 2: You will be greeted with a Rich Text Editor box, where you can write a subject of your travel tale. and then start writing your content in the big box below. You have all the options to edit the text the way you like, using Bold, Italics, Quotes, Lists, Images using IMG tags, flash content, urls, smilies etc.

Step 3: Once you write complete or some parts of your Travel Tale, you have the options to Save a Draft, Preview it or Submit it. If you Submit it, then other travelers will be able to see your pictures too.

Step 4: You can use Upload Attachment option below to uploads the pictures and attach them in the Travel Tale. You can only attach 15 images per post. Please add in the batches of 3-5 images only with size less than 200 KBs to a maximum of 15 per post to minimize the loss due to time out issues on slow connections.

Step 6: You can use [img] tags too, which accepts image URL to upload the images from other websites such as 500px, Picasa, Dropbox, Google Drive, Facebook or any other site or your own website etc. It just need a URL in the tags. This will help you go away with restrictions of size and number of images per post.

Step 7: You can Submit once you finish the content you want to share as first part and then anytime, you can come back to topic, use Reply button to repeat the above process and complete your Travel Tale in any number of replies :)

Important Notes:
  1. If possible, try to post as much helpful information as possible, like stays, expenses, travel time, local or cultural insights etc. so that others reading the travel tale can reap good benefits from it. May be you can also start with a small trip report summarizing all such stuff with some lovely teasers and then start on with the Travel Tale in detail.
Feel free to reply to this post and ask any queries for posting your Travel Tales to share your own Travel Experience with others...

Keep Traveling, Keep Sharing!! :) :) ....

Vinod, can you send me the pictures. I do not think we have a feature to support edit of older posts once the time period expires. Just send them over email and I will edit that and post here. Not sure, even I saw in this thread all images as attachments were gone :( ... Need to look out for the issue what happened here.

@akki, you can use Img button in the tool bar to insert [img] tags and then just mention the URL of Google+ in between those img tags.
