O sigh I'm sure I broke something cuz this is how my posts with pics are displaying now. Is there something I've done wrong? I tried 3 posts and the text is either divided or at the bottom of the pic. Also the icons for attaching are jiggling at the bottom of the screen in my draft. Very 60s! http://cubits.org/negarden/thread/view_post/331990/

I think I'm having the same problem - "splitting/dividing" the last line of text? Found that when I'm previewing the image I just posted if I hit "return/enter" at the end of the text that it will drop the [lightbox] info down to the next line and avoid this problem. Not sure if it's something Dave can fix or not but for now this resolves the problem for me.

Just add an empty line between what you want to say and the first light box

Here the photos will be right under each other

Example of what you would see when you have uploaded and are previewing two pictures:

[ lightbox]2010-07-27/TwinLakesChef/6b567d [ /lightbox]
[ lightbox]2010-07-27/TwinLakesChef/5990e1[ /lightbox]

And this is the way it would look:
Thumb of 2010-07-27/TwinLakesChef/2b0499
Thumb of 2010-07-27/TwinLakesChef/158e3b

Now this is what you probably did; you let the lighbox be on the same line as what you wanted to type.[ lightbox]2010-07-27/TwinLakesChef/6134c5[ /lightbox]

And this is the way it looks when you preview it.

Now this is what you probably did; you let the lighbox be on the same line as what you wanted to type.That way it wraps the words around the picture.Thumb of 2010-07-27/TwinLakesChef/6134c5

It also moves the picture into a different slot when you do it that way

Let's say you want the pictures in a row; You keep clicking on Add another photo until it puts up three; They will be in a row under each other like this:
[ lightbox]2010-07-27/TwinLakesChef/b21abd[ /lightbox]
[ lightbox]2010-07-27/TwinLakesChef/566e54[ /lightbox]
[ lightbox]2010-07-27/TwinLakesChef/11af6b[ /lightbox]

So butt them up against each other like this and the pictures will stay on the same line.

[ lightbox]2010-07-27/TwinLakesChef/b21abd[ /lightbox][ lightbox]2010-07-27/TwinLakesChef/566e54[ /lightbox][ lightbox]2010-07-27/TwinLakesChef/11af6b[ /lightbox]


It will then look like this

Thumb of 2010-07-27/TwinLakesChef/b21abd Thumb of 2010-07-27/TwinLakesChef/566e54 Thumb of 2010-07-27/TwinLakesChef/11af6b

But now would you like those pictures centered? If so, you have to add the BB code for centering.

[ center][ lightbox]2010-07-27/TwinLakesChef/b21abd[ /lightbox][ lightbox]2010-07-27/TwinLakesChef/566e54[ /lightbox][ lightbox]2010-07-27/TwinLakesChef/11af6b[ /lightbox][/center]

Thumb of 2010-07-27/TwinLakesChef/b21abd Thumb of 2010-07-27/TwinLakesChef/566e54 Thumb of 2010-07-27/TwinLakesChef/11af6b

I think these are the posts Dahlia is referring to

http://cubits.org/liliesforum/thread/view_post/332269/

and I found this thread...
http://cubits.org/Dahlias/thread/view/29798/

Arlene - since Dahlia made these posts after Dave made it easier to add more than one photo to a post - I am thinking she didn't use the BB code for lightboxes, but instead was trying to use Dave's new photo uploading method.

I have not tried the new method yet, so can't help, but thought I'd track down Dahlia's last posts and see if that helps solve this.

I had the same thing happen when the new multiple pic uploading system started.

As Arlene said, before uploading a pic make it as another paragraph, or if it happens to end up butted up to your text then all you need to do is put your flashing indicator at the start of the lightbox link and hit 'enter' to move it down away from the text.

After the pics have uploaded it's quick to 'preview' as the pics are aleady loaded so you can see how it will look and make changes if necessary.

Jules, you'll see when you try it that his new method puts the BB code in with the lightbox automatically.

All she needs to do is go in and edit every post and put an empty line between the code that Uploading an image already put in and what she wants to say. That fixes the alignment challenge.

OK! so, the old way of multiple photos you had to have the photo in a cmail or somewhere already in Cubits. Is the new way made so it does lightbox, but you don't have to have the image in your cmail etc?

I will have to try it later when I have the time.
