How To Post Images and Videos



There are two ways to include images in your posts:

 Please note: photo attachments can only work on the forum using the 'reply' option to post, not 'quick reply'.


1. Use the attachment option

This can be found at the bottom of the writing area when you create a new post.

Simply click on 'add files', select a picture that is saved on your computer, and it will automatically upload.

Your image will be included as an attachment when you then click 'submit' for your post.



2. Include the image in the body of your post

Upload any image to a third party host for example tinyurl or photobucket and either:

a) select the 'insert image' tab, from the menu above the text box when you create a new post, and enter the image address (url)


b) manually type the 'BB tags' (img) and (/img) but in square brackets, either side of the image address (url) you wish to display.

For example:


but with square brackets [ ] instead of the normal brackets (if I used them in the example, it would go invisible)




The forum supports video embedding from the following: Youtube, Myspace Video, Metacafe, Veo, Revver, Daily Motion.


To embed video into your posts:


1. Manually insert the video into your post

When making a post by 'reply', 'new topic' or 'quick reply' option, you can simply type the following in your post to insert a video:


or if it is a Youtube video:


then submit your post in the normal way and the video will be embedded.

2. Use the Youtube button in the posting box menu bar

When you make a post by the 'reply' or 'new topic' option (not quick reply) you see a menu bar at the top of the posting area. Click on the Youtube icon on the middle line right hand side,  and insert the video URL / web address into the box and click 'OK'.

Your video will now be embedded when you make and submit your post in the normal way.






Copyright and Sharing Photos

Please do not post any images / videos on the forum to which you do not have the copyright. Please always obtain the correct permissions before posting copyrighted photos and images on the forum, and acknowledge the source of all images by providing a link in all postings. This applies to all postings, avatars and signatures.

As a general rule, if in doubt, please only post the website link / url to the images not the images themselves.

Please do not 'hotlink' images direct from another site, i.e 'copying' the image from the source site and 'pasting' directly on to the forum. This is technically stealing their bandwidth. All hotlinked images will be removed.

Please always use a third party host to upload your image e.g Photobucket, or use the upload option as described above to upload the image direct from your computer to the forum. 


Sharing Images Found on The Damien Molony Forum

Please do not copy or share images posted at the Damien Molony Forum. These may be images we have gained permission to share (for example Suspects promo photos from Channel 5) specifically on the forum or the fansite. If we post an image here it does not mean it is automatically available to copy. Additionally some of these images are licensed to us (at a cost) for use on www.damienmolonyforum.com or www.damienmolony.org and for editorial use only, cannot be shared on Tumblr, Facebook, Twitter or any other website. The terms of our license mean we have to report any such illegal use.

However, we very much welcome sharing by linking directly back to us, for example to share an image posted here, provide the direct link to the relevant forum topic.


If you have any questions about posting your pics or vids on the forum, please feel free to post them here or contact admin or one of the moderators.


Thank you and have fun!
