    Thumbs up How to: Add Pics To Your Posts

    [EDITED - 5/14/11. The subsequent posts are no longer in direct reply to this post, but are still helpful!]

    There are a couple different ways to add pics to your posts...

    Add images from another website: (Such as Photobucket.com, or Flickr.com, or any other website URL. Maximum of 35 photos per post.):
    1. Upload your pictures to the website of your choice OR copy the url of the picture from any random website.
    2. Click the icon above that looks like a 'painting' or a 'picture'.
    3. In the box that pops up, add the image URL to your picture
    4. Click 'OK'.


    Upload Attachment: (Makes pics a thumbnail that users can click on. Maximum of 10 per post):
    1. Be sure you are in the "Go Advanced" editing area. The Quick Reply feature doesn't show advanced features.
    2. Click on the "Paperclip" icon to upload attachments.
    3. Click "Add Files".
    4. Click "Select Files".
    5. Choose your pictures to add.
    6. Click "Upload Files".
    7. Click "Done" at the bottom right.
    8. (You also could have chosen pics from your User Album if you had any in there already.)

    How do you post that many? When I posted some pics it only allowed me to post five. I am obviously doing something wrong.

    Jeremie, go to my http://photobucket.com/?link=topmenu...k=nav_tab_home & set up an account.
    Download your pics from your computer to PB & then copy them to your post.
    It's free

    Gary... upload the pics to Photobucket or something of the like. The pics should have "link" text that you can copy and paste into the post. Then imbed the URL link to the photo in the post (the little yellow mountain/moon icon). The http address will appear in brackets in the post and then you can preview it to see if it worked. Hope this makes sense...

    Photobucket will also give you the option of copying the exact messageboard code you need to imbed the image without needing the extra step of the "little yellow mountain moon". Basically it will automatically wrap the link in a [url] code.

    Just copy the "IMG Code" that is listed under the image you'd like. Check the screenshot below for details:
