Edit: This thread is out of date. Please refer to this post instead.

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: Image Enlarger

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!

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.


okayyy thankyou:)

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.
