Problems creating albums and uploading photos

Inspired by our new members eddyandclair's example, Sue (my wife) suggested that perhaps it's time we all abandon our shyness, bite the bullet and make use of the media gallery - the thought being that nobody posts in the gallery because nobody else has .... until, of course, eddyandclair came along 

Sue's thought was for us to ease into it gently by initially posting a few "historic" naturist pictures (we have been naturists for many years) .... we'll work up towards anything more current  LOL.

Let's hope eddyandclair breaking the deadlock and Sue and I following suit will also encourage others to join in ?  🙂

There is strength in numbers, but if no one else enters into the spirit of things, we'll delete the lot, give up and post some pictures of some flowers !

Great idea Phil, but unfortunately the forum software seems impenetrably complex!  I have created an album, but there seems to be no way to add pictures to it.  I've looked at the "simple instructions" in the media gallery section, and they make no sense.  I'm only a simple graduate engineer, so take it easy with me...

Hi Andreas,

No problem, we'll take another look at the instructions and see if they can be simplified (don't tell Alan, but I had problems too  LOL).

it looked a little confusing to me at first too.
basically (iirc) you create an album first, add a title, but leave everything else as default. click submit
Then go to the album and click the "add an item to this album" button
select a photo and and leave everything as default.  > click submit === job done or repeat 

Hope this helps!

go to My albums (or click here http://www.veraplayafriends.com/index.php?action=media;area=mya )
there should be a list of your albums (the one you just created?) > click the name of the album
On the next page, there should now be a "add an item to this album"
(i am looking on a PC. dont know if it is different on a mobile....)

Or PS
I assume this is your album http://www.veraplayafriends.com/index.php?action=media;sa=album;in=30
the "add an item to this album" should be on this page

I think i found the issue

Click on "edit" (on your album page)

There should be a field called "Permission profile" > select default profile from the select box, click Submit

this should or may then show the "add an item to this album" button....

No, doesn't work. I've deleted the album title.  If the forum hosts seriously want participation, they have to make things more accessible.  I'm very supportive of this forum, but there must be an easier way of adding info and pics to it!

Hmm, OK sorry i could not help more. seemed to work first time for me. Maybe Admin just need to look at what permissions you are granted, maybe it is an oversight of a box needed ticking in their admin section.

Ok, let's see if the modified instructions work any better ?

See "Media Gallery Guidelines and instructions"
