How to add a picture in your post

Fri May 08, 2015 8:55 pm

1. Click the "upload attachment" tab underneath your text box, when you create or respond to a post.

2. Click the "browse" button, and select your picture from your home computer. Once it is selected, hit the "add file" button.

3. You should see your attachment, or attachments, listed under the heading of "posted attachments."

4. Position your cursor where you want your picture inside your post. Then, click the "place inline" button. Your picture's code will appear where your cursor is.

5. That's it. Simply add more pictures or finish your post. You can post as many pictures as you like, provided that they are not too large. If they are too large, please see the post about resizing pictures, also in the website support forum.

Enjoy :)

Thanks Ron

It seems that the menu prompts have changed. The tutorial no longer works, at least on Windows browsers.

It's identical, except with a hamburger menu:

No hamburger menu and even though files are uploaded, nothing appears in the post, or is saved to profile. I'd show you a screen shot, but files won't appear in my posts...

It seems that I am not alone. It could be a bug or it could be a setting that is common to those who cannot post.

What size files are you trying to post? What format files are you trying to post? Telling me there is an error without telling me anything else is really unhelpful. Come on guys...help me help you here. What browser are you using? What version of Windows or Mac OS? You know...tell me things that remotely enhance the possibility that I can fix this for you.

Alternately: You cannot post pictures, but the rest of us can.

For photos I have only had luck with .jpg files less than 26 kiB. I use a file-size reducing app. My 2 psi

If I could do that, I could probably figure it out myself.

I did figure out if I copy the address from another site, use the "Img" button above, then paste the link in between: img<---HERE--->img it works.
