How Do I Post Links To Gallery Items In The Forum?

Postby ctaulbee » Oct Mon 07, 2013 2:25 pm

We have several bbCodes for posting links from the cover art and resource galleries into forum posts and replies.

There are two ways both use the PID or item location ID found in each gallery here:

First find the items physical position in the gallery it is on the large preview screen where the download button is like so for cover art items:


or like this for a resource item:


Note the number or copy it to your clipboard, now when making a post in the forum you will see these bbCodes, pick the correct one for the type item you are linking to.  The first two Gallery & Resource create button links, the second two thumb & thumbr create thumbnails links:


Example of the first two one for a Cover and one for a Resource once submitted the code will create a nice little button and clicking it will take you to the gallery item's download page.


Example of the second two again one for a Cover and one for a Resource, once submitted the code will create a thumbnail in the post and clicking it will take you to the gallery item's download page.

Nice. Can I suggest if possible to have the 'Goto Download' open the image in a new tab instead of the same tab?
Not really a problem as you can just go back to the original page once it has opened or just select to open the link in a new tab before selecting it.
