How do I add images to factbooks?

Postby The Glass Oasis » Tue Jul 16, 2019 1:43 am

I’ve tried placing stuff like this (without the code part)

Code: Select all
[img]Test_Image.jpg[/img]


but it doesn’t work
is it because I’m on mobile? I’m confused.. I’m probably doing something wrong but I’m not sure what, am I supposed to put the name of the image into the [img] thing? Do I just need to try to get a better file type? I’m really stuck on this, can someone please help, I’ve made sure [img] is ON

I can’t do it on posts either

If nothing stated in factbooks or forums, go by SR things if possible. NSstats loosely followed.
Adjustable PMT?-FT-FanT-FFT? mix Kinda just SR tech.

I have Scratch!
shame I’m sometimes making accidentally wrong choices but oh well, JUST LIKE REAL LIFE, am I right! Ha,ha,hah..ha
I love slime rancher, WHY ARE THERE BASICALLY NO SLIME RANCHER NATIONS, IVE EVEN SEEN KSP NATIONS.. sorry for ranting in my sig

You need to upload the image to an image hosting site first. I use Imgur, but there are other options available.

There's more of a guide to adding images in the Technical FAQ.

Have you inserted the URL of the photo?

Code: Select all
[img][INSERT PHOTO URL][/img]


If you’re using imgur (for example), don’t use the URL of the page you see the photo, instead, copy the photo (by tapping continuously the photo) by using the copy option on your phone.

It works for mobile. My factbooks have tons of photos, all of them uploaded from my phone.

Take a look at my factbook, and click raw on the bottom. It will reveal all the code for you to see and use.

Here's Imgur.

You can sign-up here. That way, you can set your images so they're not publicly findable. Or, I think you can upload without signing in (but I've never done that)

It has a very intuitive upload process IIRC, and then -- from there -- you should be able save the images to your factbook. I've used it for a dispatch before -- but not for this nation.

You've pasted the link to the Imgur page, not the image itself.

The proper link is https://i.imgur.com/kd94Su1.jpg, though you need to spoiler it as the image is quite large.
