Q. How do I attach a picture or file to my post?


A.   Click on "Additional Options..." link when you are posting something. The attachments feature allows you to attach files to your posts in much the same way as most email clients, so you simply have to browse to the relevant file(s) on your computer before clicking Post. You can delete your attachment(s) or add more by modifying your post, but please note that:

    * The permitted file types and sizes are set by the forum administrator(s).
    * Although most forums are likely be configured to display attached images as part of the post, it's not possible to preview attachments so you should always browse to and attach your files just before you finally post your message.

Ok...

This frustrates me to tears... :'(

I attached the picture, but it doesn't end up in the post.  I just ends up an attachment at the bottom of the post.  I want it to be IN the post. (It's a jpeg, 33 kb)

What am I doing wrong?

I've posted pictures before.  Why's it not working now?  I don't get it...

wsalam,

the only way to attach a picture IN a post is to upload it to a different site so you have the url of it. so something like imageshack.us is a free way to upload images:

Directions:


1. Go to  http://www.imageshack.us In the middle you will see a box to upload your images.

2. Browse through your files to find the image that you want.

3. Continue by clicking on the "Host It" link and upload to the site.

6. Record the URL given.. This URL can be used to put the image onto websites, emails, forums or other locations on the web.

Not to be dense...
but,
I posted a picture before (the picture of the Baklava) and I didn't have to go thru all that..... Huh?
My son suggested using the public file in our dropbox.  We tried that, and the url just showed up.
I'll try imageshack. 
But I was just wondering if you've changed things since last I posted a picture...?

What's the url I'll try to post it?

We never had the ability to position pictures IN the posts, but you can attach pictures and they show up at the end.

Okay, so here is a cheat that you can use.

1. Attach a pic to your post, and submit it.
2. Then copy the link of the recently upload image by right clicking it.
3. Now paste that link in these tags by editing your post [ img ] [ /img ] (remove extra spaces from tags)

And voila... you wouldn't have to upload pic to another server.

Here is an example:
