Then as long as my images are within the filesize rules for how big I'm allowed to post, they will adjust to fit the template accordingly?
But there's not a way for me to control how big it gets shrunk to like I could on Wikipedia or BS01. I would have to shrink the file on my own computer?
Does it make a difference that my images are from a url? I did not upload them directly to BZPower, I uploaded them to Brickshelf and embedded the url.
Thanks!

You shouldn't have to worry about the file size limit most of the time, but if you do go over 750kB, resizing shouldn't be too big a problem. Yes, they will adjust accordingly.

 

If you do want to resize (if the image is pretty big, it might look pretty big even after the forum software resizes it), you will have to to shrink it personally.

 

There isn't much of a difference, no. The image size doesn't change unless the software converts it (which shouldn't happen unless you post an image into a comment).

 

No problem!

EDIT: Also, notice that in BBC (Bionicle Based Creations), the file size limit decreases to 100kB, and the image size limit decreases to 640x640. This means you'll have to manually resize images yourself in order to post images in BBC topics. You can read more about that here, in the BBC Forum Rules and Guidelines.

If they are embedded urls and not uploaded directly, do I even have to worry about the file size at all? Only the dimensons would matter if someone else is hosting the image, right?

If you embed an image URL like this, than you don't need to worry about any of the file or image size limits on BZP. The limits only apply when directly embedding an image in a comment, like this: ninjas_meet_thumbnails.png

Is it 100kb per image or total for the whole post? I can't tell from the wording of the rules.

I can't seem to link a post to my brickshelf gallery. The window won't allow me to press OK, and when I click Cancel, the window asking me weather I want to cancel or not sends my back to the hyperlink window no matter what I do.

Could you give us an example? Maybe a screenshot or something? I'm not entirely sure what your issue is. Are you having trouble accessing your gallery when you link to it in a post on BZP? Or are you having trouble hyper-linking to your gallery when you are posting?

I'm having trouble hyperlinking.

 

Could you paste the full link to your gallery in a post? Not a hyperlink, just the link itself. I'll try and see if I can find a problem.

Huh. It works if I just type it out in the post, but not if I use the link tool. I don't know if the gallery is public yet.

The gallery is indeed not yet public but that shouldn't be the reason you cannot link to it.

Link.

 

Looks like I'm able to hyperlink it. If using the hyperlink button doesn't work for you, try adding in this code when in the BBCode editor (just click the switch on the top left of your post editor):

 

[url=http://www.brickshelf.com/cgi-bin/gallery.cgi?f=550205]Insert Text Here[/url]
