Hide file names?

Postby brom » Tue Feb 13, 2018 6:22 am

Hello everybody,

Is it possible that the file names of the inserted photos are not displayed as text for reading? I think it's not necessarily useful if under the photo for example img0001.jpg stands as a signature. I did not find a function to hide this text.

Greetings from Germany

I think you have to click on the 'post in line' button.

First you click on the "Attachments" tab at the bottom of the page. Then click on the "Add files" box and select the photo or file you wish to attach. When the photo is uploaded there is an address bar to the right of the "delete file" box in which you can enter the photo details and this appears under the photo after you have previewed or submitted your post. Once you have entered the description (file name or other details), click on "Place inline" and your photo will be loaded onto your posting with the description below and to the left of the photo. I always preview my posts to ensure that the attachment is in the correct position within the text. See my photo below as an example.

I also find that if I hover my mouse over the photo when it has been placed inline, the file name appears.

Thank you for the answers!
My approach was exactly as explained by Rod Smith, just without further details in the description. Nevertheless, the file name appears below the picture

I'm not sure how this happens as it doesn't for me. :???:

Brom you have to give it a name that shows up when you hover the curser over the picture and you have to enter a name in to the description box . This will appear underneath the picture.
