I have been trying to post collections in the forums since I joined Artfire. Yes, i found the how to instructions from the Artfire Staff.Â
But it did not work for me! I tried using the advanced reply, and making a widget, I followed all the directions step by step, and still it didn't work. I figured it must be something with my operating system, I use Internet explorer, Or google chrome on a desk top using Windows XP proffesional. But others were using the same sytsems, so why doesnt it work? Â Good question, but Â I have no answer.
What I do know is that I learned a shortcut. A simple way to post a collection in the Artfire forums, from Barleecreations another helpful Artfire seller. As I have stated in other blogs, the Artfire community here is so nice & helpful, this is a great example of how the people here help one another!
Do not use the ADVANCED REPLY! I know that is what all the other directions say, but for some of us that doesn't work, trust me.
Use another window to go from the collection tab & one to post in the forum tab, you will have 2 separate windows open.
Â Go to the Collection you want to share, Use theÂ embed collection in a website, pick your format, color of background size, etc to see what it will look like.Â
Highlight the code in the box, right click,Â copy image url,Â and then open the other window again and use theÂ QUICK REPLYÂ box and add your description, then right click and paste!Â
You will see all the HTML but after you enter it and it posts, it will show up in the forum with just the collection!. I hope this works for you!Â
