Posting pictures?
Are you able to post "direct" pictures or just links? It appears most pictures are links, but, if I'm correct, that I have seen a few "direct" pictures.

Can you post pictures? I tried using the little picture icon with no result.

It appears that the attachment feature is not activated. I have only been able to post linked photos.

If you go into one of you existing posts to edit it there is a note at the bottom that says:

click: "User CP"

click: "Edit Options"

go to: "Thread Display Options" and find "Visible Post Elements"

check the box next to"Show Images"

click the "Save Changes" box at bottom of page

This should allow you to post pictures as images rather than links, using the "Insert Image" icon.

No genius at all. Like everything connected with computers, I had to have one of my children show me how to do it. :)
It's great to have direct pictures back again.

You also have to follow Tinpig's directions to see pictures - otherwise they just show up as a link. Figured that one out. Feeling kind of proud of myself. :) :)

It didn't for me Boss. The instructions were pretty clear but, I still haven't mastered it. Clicking "Post Image" still brings up the screen for me to insert the URL.

Can you post pictures direct from your computer or do you have to use one of the photo sites??????:confused::confused:
