How to add pictures to a forum post

This is how you add a picture to a forum post.

Two ways to do this:


1.Click on the attachments option (underneath Save Draft, Preview, and Submit) options:

Select one or more images (you want to add to a message). Hold down the shift key(to select more than one image).

Click the Open button.

The images will be uploaded.

Once uploaded, (you will see them), position (your cursor) where you want to add the images, and click the Place inline button.

You will see an "" appears in your forum post (message).

Click the Submit button, to (finish) your forum post, or Previewto see what it will look like.




2. If you are using a third-party image hosting service like flikr,

You need to link your image (in flikr) to your Post.

Click theInsert Imagebutton, OR just copy these tags into your message:

"[img].....[/img]"

Put the website address of your image in between the tags.

For example http://chocksaway.com/blog/wp-content/u ... hield1.png would go in between the [img].....[/img]

Click the Submit or Previewbutton.

Hi Miles
Can you do one of these showing how to put up your own avatar, plus resizing photos to use as an avatar because this can be a nightmare to do!
Cheers John.

Hi Miles, would you have any idea why i get the is message when I try to load any images?

ERROR
Sorry, the board attachment quota has been reached

The site had gone over it's limit again, Paul extended it again last night, so should be okay for a while now.
