How do I post photos?

#1 Post by Zayantegirl » Tue Aug 07, 2018 2:37 pm

I am having difficulty posting photos. Clicking on the little "photo icon" doesn't seem to work. Can you enlighten this tech challenged dinosaur?

Hey Zayantegirl!

I believe the image button allows you to display an image from a remote site. (Just like a link but display's the image instead of hyperlink)

To add a picture that you have local on your PC, use the Attachments tab at the bottom. You will notice a "Place inline" button once the attachment has been uploaded.

Here is an example:

When I click "Place inline" it adds the following text at the cursor:

Code: Select all

[attachment=0]20180725-jpmorgan.jpg[/attachment]
It renders as follows:
20180725-jpmorgan.jpg

You can also use a image code from sites like Photobucket.com There are other hosting sites out there too.

The site is restrictive probably to reduce server load but I've managed to upload an image 900 x 598 plx 238 kb GIF file. I couldn't find the maximum size available.
