HOW TO HOST or UPLOAD IMAGES/PICTURES.
The East African user doesn’t host images in its server per say. Our site publishes images/pictures that are hosted in Image hosting sites

Image hosting sites
Image hosting sites are websites that allow individuals to upload images /pictures to the Internet and save them in their data base. Image hosting is free just like an email inbox, they earn incomes from website advertisements. For you to host an image, you will have to open an account with the Hosting site. A password and user name will be issued and you will have to log in when you intend to upload an image/picture. The advantage of image host site is that it’s secure, faster and reliable when it comes to uploading and storing images/pictures on the website. You can also store your own private images and pictures as this is you private account just like an email. At the moment the East African User is in Partnership with https://servimg.com/ (recommended) but you can use any Image host of your choice

How to upload in our website:
Once you host/upload an image/picture an album will be created and below each picture will be a link or a code. Copy and paste that code when you’re posting a comment in our website and the image will appear with it.

https://servimg.com/
If you intend to use the https://servimg.com/ click “link” next to you image. Several links will appear. Under the sub-heading “BBcode” copy and paste the link under IMAGE if you want you pictures to appear large or THUMBNAIL if you want a small pictures

I hope you found this information helpful. If all fails the picture to the admin and It will be upload for you.

posting a quote [/quote]

Post  Admin on Wed Sep 28 2011, 08:18

In order to quote a post put the massage between [quote][/quote] example
[quote] a ab bc cd [/quote]. The quoted massage should start with [quote] and to close the quotation should end in a back slash in the quote box i.e [/quote] .

To put a name on a quote begin the quote as [quote="NAME"] and close it with the usual [/quote]
thanks

If so then, when you log in
• Click “profile” the 7th topic from “Home” ,on the header topics line.
• the profile window/page will appear and in its headings click the “avatar” 4th topic
• click “Upload an Avatar from your computer” (on the left side of that page) and upload your image from you computer.


You can get Free profile graphics/image at

Time on Forum

Post  Interloper on Fri Jan 20 2012, 22:48

Admin,
Since this forum is basically East African, I would request that you change the time displayed on the forum to reflect the East African time. It is confusing when postings are two hours behind.

Regards,

Interloper

Interpol.. I think the time difference might be something to do with your P.C or profile settings. The blog is configured at +3gmt which equivalent to EA timings.

check you individual settings by logging in click on “profile” (3rd on top heading bar) then click on to “preferences” scroll down up to “timezone” adjust it to +3 Moscow.
Waiting for you feed back.

cheers
