Here are some instructions for adding an image to a forum post.

When writing a post you'll see a small icon of a tree. Click this and a popup box will appear with some options.

There are two ways you can then add a picture:

  1. Point to one hosted on another website. To do this (depending on your browser) go to the picture in question, right click and choose properties, then copy the location of the picture (it will probably begin with http and end with .gif or .jpg, but shouldn't be .html). Add this link to the "Image URL" field in the popup box. This is probably the easiest way to do it.
  2. Upload it to this site. Again, click on the tree icon, then on the little image of a camera on the right-hand side. You should then be able to browse to pics on your computer and upload them to the site, and they'll then appear in your forum messages.

Please note that inappropriate images will be deleted, and anyone abusing the facility may have their account terminated and/or IP blacklisted. Copyrighted material may also be removed if a complaint is received.

Test with image on the web:

Test with image upload:

The images are resized automatically, and users can click to see the enlarged versions.

For those who know html, there's an option to use <img src> codes instead of using the web interface. Instead of the tree icon click on the html button and you can add code directly. And if that makes no sense to you, don't worry about it!

Just to let you know, I'm disabling the image upload. I became nervous about alllowing people to upload whatever they wanted to my server (which I'd be responsible for). I didn't really fancy the prospect of police breaking down my door if the facility became abused.

Thankfully everyone's been responsible so far, and I'll keep all previously-uploaded images on the server. I was more worried that, as the forum becomes more popular and new users register, it would become harder to moderate everything that gets uploaded.

If you want to publish an image that's not currently online, please use a photo-sharing site such as Flickr or Photobucket.

Photobucket should be able to host them: http://photobucket.com/images/.....ted%20gif/

Sorry for the inconvenience - I hope you understand my reasons.

OK so no preview with it then. It's a couple more steps than the old way. I'll survive somehow. ;)

Shannon - you won't be able to browse photos on your hard drive, because I don't allow people to upload them to my server. You have to have the pics online somewhere, then paste the url (http://whatever.jpg) into the image field when writing a message.

How do you do gifs? Do you have to create and store them yourself in some online account or are there places online that host them?

Wish I could help you, but I'm afraid I can't. I've tried doing things like that before, but I just end up having a little cry and then giving up. Maybe someone else will know....?

I meant to respond earlier. I set up an account at http://imgur.com/ (it's free) and I use that to upload and post images here. When you're logged in, you click on an image, and you'll see the URL to copy and paste when you're inserting an image.

Let me know if you need more help.

Can anyone upload pics to the forum via an attachment on a mobile device and if so how are you doing it? I don't mean copying and pasting a link from somewhere else on the web, I mean from your own computer library.

I can get to the attachment section where it says "add files" on my iPod but no matter how often or forceful i press the button absolutely nothing happens. One option would be to drag and drop the file but thats not possible on an iPod.

It's for the 'How Do You...' Guide.

Thanks for any replies.

@meanmistermustard I'm not sure anyone's worked out how to do it from a mobile device. If you look at the posts that others have been posting for @Ahhh Girl, they have all involved photos.
