*** Work in Progress ***
This is a work in progress post whilst I tidy up the various sub-threads, update broken guides, etc.
This post is an index of "how to" guides for posting multi-media content into posts on theFretBoard.
The forum does not host any images, videos, etc. There are good reasons for that approach, and it's not likely to change anytime soon. To include images (etc) in a post here, you must upload the content to one of the many hosting sites and then insert a link from the host to the forum.
The index contains a link to "how to" guides for the main hosting sites, and the various devices that people use.
This information is correct - AFAIK - as of September 2021. However, the functionality and UIs of hosting sites, and their dedicated apps, and the OSes of the devices that people use to access the forum, all change regularly, so these guides will need to be updated if or when they become out-dated.
Each of the guides covers the main platforms used - Windows and OSX (desktop devices), iOS (iPad) and Android (phones).
NB, where a browser is used, I've assumed Chrome (on Win & Android) and Safari (on OSX/iOS).
In the list below, click on the host that you use - it links to guidance specific to that host.
