Once you log-in to your Skyrock account everything is so simple. Options such as write an article, validate comments, go to dash-board and many more are accessible from the tool bar at the top of the page, and so just one click away.....
To access your blog, profile or account click on your photo at the top right hand corner of the page and voilà!
Got a new message? A friend request? Someone's commented on your article? To keep fully up to date with all the latest activity concerning your account all you have to do it click 'Alerts' It's all so easy huh?!
You called for it and it's finally here!! You can now publish up to 6 unique photos in one article. So how does it work you ask?
1. Write an article 2. With the cursor in the desired location for the image click on the 'Insert images' button: 3. Select the photo you want to add and choose its alignment (none, left, central or right)
To add further photos simply repeat the second step.
When you add a photo a line of code appears in your text (like with text colours etc) which will indicate something such as [third image, aligned to the left] To help you out the image thumbnails are displayed at the bottom of your article.
To delete an image or choose the default image (what will appear in search results) you must click on the 'Insert images' button. In the 'Edit images' window that opens click on the blue star to choose an image as the default picture, or the red cross to delete it. Note: Animated gifs which are over 1Mb will be automatically converted to jpg's on upload.

Now it's possible to add multiple pics to an article (see the 'how to') there are some seriously cool design possibilities for your posts. Here are a couple of ideas to get your creative juices flowing:
- - First add your images to the article and select their width. Then, all you have to do is copy and paste the code below - -
[image_1_G][image_1_D][break] [align=center]YOUR TEXT [/align][break] [image_1_G][image_1_D]
[image_1_G][image_2_G] YOUR TEXT
[image_3_G] YOUR TEXT
[image_4_G] YOUR TEXT
FRAME: Please note - you must use two separate pictures to make a frame in which you can place text/images. One picture is needed for the horizontal rows and one for the vertical rows.
[image_1_G] Text for the first image[break] [image_2_D] Text for the second image[break] [image_3_G] Text for the third image[break] [image_4_D] Text for the fourth image[break] [image_5_G] Text for the fifth image[break]
And there it is :)
