A Photo from your Hard Drive

You can upload photos to this site using the Media section. For each pic you upload, you'll be given an address which you can use to include pictures in your posts.

Or you can upload them  to Flickr, photo bucket, Facebook etc then do as below 'A Photo on the Web'

A Photo on the web

If you wish to include a photo you've found on the web...
Rightclick it , copy the image address.

Safari


Firefox


Internet Explorer

then copy the 'Address Url'

Now the URL should be in your clipboard...

In your post.. Click the 1st button on the 2nd row Then paste where the cursor is flashing.

Here's how to include a map for e.g. Nort y Sur

1. Go to www.Fuerteventura-Maps.com - (There's a permanent link 2nd top of the column on the left)

2. Choose the appropriate location from the top menu - e.g. in this case - Puerto del Rosario

3. Fiddle with the map to locate your spot roughly centred.

4. Click the link in the left column "Share your Location" then "Drop Marker at centre"

5. Drag the marker to the exact spot, click on its name and change it from "Drag, Name - Copy Link" to e.g. "Nort y Sur"

6. From the left column, choose the link under the headline "Embed Map iFrame in Fuerteventura-Forum.com posts"

7. Copy that and paste it in your post

Videos

Mumford and Sons - Little Lion Man

Adding videos is easy - no need to wrap the link in code - just paste the link to the YouTube page that it is on.
