Default How to: Post Pictures

To post an image...

1 - Whatever you want to post has to reside on the web somewhere, which means it needs an http:// address, where and how it is hosted is up to you.

2 - Once you locate the Site, Video or Image that you want to post you do the following:

Step 1: Copying the http:// Address or URL
- Site: Copy the URL in the address bar at the top of your browser.
- Video: Either find something that says Share or Embed in Website, click on the URL that pops up and Copy, or right click on the image of the video, go to properties and copy the URL.
- Image: Right click on the image, go to properties and copy the URL.

Step 2: Pasting the URL that you copied into your post or thread
- Click on New Thread or Post Reply
- In the dialog box that pops up, right-click and select paste. it should look something like this: (

Step 3: Making the site, video or image you posted visible and useable within the thread:
*NOTE: I am leaving spaces between the brackets [ ] and the letters url or img, this is being done so that you can see what it looks like, when you actually do it, DO NOT leave spaces.
- For Sites and Video you put this at the beginning [ url ] and this at the end [ /url ], for example [ url ][ /url ].
- For Images, same deal, just replace url with img

That should do it… Now, next step.
To be able to see the images in a thread...

After logging in, got to the "User CP" up in the menu.
Go down to
"edit options"
Now scroll down to...
"Thread Display Options" and find "Visible Post Elements"
and check the box next to"Show Images"
"Show Images (including attached images and images in [IMG] code)"
The scroll down and click
"Save Changes"...
And if the person did the "insert image tag" correctly, you'll be seeing images. This should also allow you to post pictures as images rather than links, using the "Insert Image" icon.

All set!
