This FAQ will show you how to create/manage your own personal Photo Albums (categories) in the MR2OC Photo Gallery and upload pictures to them.
Only Paid Members can create Categories or upload images.
Your personal Category (titled with your username) is created for you when you log into the site. You may create another 9 sub-categories within it and upload to them a total of 500 images
Please read the tutorial carefully before starting, any problems contact Jimi via a PM on the forum
First step is to go to the Gallery, on the top menu, select Gallery this should take you to this page where you need to select User Panel
To upload pictures to your Personal Category click Upload
The Category box will default to your last used or created Category if neccessary use the drop down menu to select the Category you wish to upload to. Then either drag’n’drop the images onto the green box or click the box to show an upload selection window where you can select the images to upload.
I’d suggest uploading in batches of no more than 10 or 15 at a time to prevent any errors or timeouts.
When ready click Upload
When the upload has completed you will see this page, select Back to Gallery Overview
Where you will see your Personal Category with your images in it.
Managing your Catergories and Images
If you wish to create more albums then click User Panel
Then Categories and in the next window New Categories
Give the new album a name in the Title box and click Save.
If you wish to edit an Album, i.e. select a thumbnail for it, rename, delete etc then click User Panel, then Categories
then select the appropriate icon on the album you wish to edit.
To add a thumbnail, click Select
A pop up window will show you all the images in your album, select the one you want and then Save
To move, rename, delete, add a description to any of your uploaded images click User Panel and select the image you wish to edit by clicking the edit icon
or use the Delete icon to remove it
NOTE: this cannot be undone, deleted images cannot be restored, you will have to upload them again !
On this page you can move the image to any of your albums by using the drop down Category menu, change the title or add a description
Remember to click Save when finshed
Only create your own sub-categories in your own Category (titled with your username) and upload your pictures to them.
To start a new topic in a forum first choose the forum you wish to post in by clicking the forum title (I'll use General Banter as an example) then find the "New Topic" button (top and bottom of the page) and click that.
Enter a title for your post in the Subject box, enter the text of your post in the box below that and then click the "Submit" button at the bottom of the page.
If you wish to post a reply on an existing thread then click the "Post Reply" button at the top or bottom of the thread and continue from the second step above. Any problems contact and Admin or Mod by PM or use the Support Ticket system http://www.mr2oc.co.uk/support-get-help ... icket.html
On the forum , members can send each other what is called a Private Message or PM , unlike normal forum posts these messages can only be read by the message recipient
Sent messages stay in your Outbox until the recipent reads them
If you receive a Private Message , you will normally get an email notification of the event, this can be configured in your User Control Panel (top of the forum next to your username)
Messages remain in your outbox until the other member reads the message
whilst mild swearing is allowed on the forum , members are asked not to try and circumvent the word filter by reformatting words
Due to recent changes to Photobucket's T's & C's , any links you post to any forums will no longer be displayed, unless you pay $399
Consequently we recommend that you use alternative online/cloud storage facillities.
Paid members can make use of their personal gallery which has space for 500 images CLICKY
