Title: How to add photos
Post by: AlexK on November 04, 2008, 11:32:50 pm
Want to add photos to your post?  Here's your step-by-step guide:

1.  Click 'Additional Options...' underneath where you type your reply, and look for the 'Attach:' field.
2.  Click the 'Browse...' button to the right, and use the 'File Upload' dialog box that appears to locate the file on your computer.
3.  Once you've found it, double-click on it.  This will enter its file name in the 'Attach' field.
4.  If you want to add another photo, click '(more attachments)' - another field will appear.
5.  Click 'Post' - your photos will be automatically included at the end of your post.

Any restrictions?

Alternative method

1.  Sign-up for an account with a photo hosting site such as flickr ( or photobucket (
2.  Upload your photos to your account.
3.  Place the cursor in your forum post where you'd like the image to appear, and click the 'Insert Image' button.
4.  Paste the link for your photo as given by flickr or photobucket.  This is usually described as an 'Embed URL'.  You should end up with something that looks like: [ img ] link to your photo goes here [ /img ]
5.  That's it. When you click 'Post' your photos will be automatically included in your post.
