View Full Version : Probably the 100th time this has been asked

Ok I have figured out (I think) how to link to a photo I have uploaded to say Flikr,
but how do all you clever people manage to post the photo directly into a thread so that the photo is already there - open for everyone to see? I'm sure there is a posting somewhere about this but can't find it.
Sorry and thanks,

When you're typing your text in the box to submit a new thread or reply, there's an icon above the box with a little mountain on it which stands for "insert image". Click on it, and then paste the photos URL from flickr or whatever you're using. Simple as that!

Thanks Trisha, but does that not give you a link to the photos as opposed to having the actual photo open in the reply, or am I missing something?

Ok I have it figured I think:
What you do is go to the photo you want to post in Flickr, then copy the URL,
then, go back to this site, go to the thread/post, type in put the cursor in between the middle two brackets, with no space, then paste the URL. Next click on preview and hey presto, your photo should appear....well it did for me anyway!

Cute pic of Bosco!

I used to do the whole [img] thing too, but I would always forget which way the dash needed to be, or not to include any spaces, etc.

Then I realized if you click the little mountain (insert image) icon you don't have to worry about any of that! Yes, you need to copy the URL from the photo you want to paste. Then click the mountain icon. A box pops up and you paste the photos URL and hit OK. It is so much easier!

Test it out.
