Hello

 

How do I post images in forum topics when a url is requested.

Is there somewhere I can upload my images  and link to them using the url  to the image?

 

Thanks

Hello RG

 

Is there somewhere I can upload images to?

Then I'd be able to post  images in the forum by linking to them?

Thanks

We don't have a separate place to upload images except for things like your avatar...  Most people use some sort of image hosting service like the free one available through Google...  Check out some of the canned speech for images to follow where they are hosted...  Also, as we convert the forum to a different software, all of this may change and images hosted elsewhere are more likely to remain stable...

I just reread what you are asking and I think I misunderstood...  While it is possible to do what you are asking about, we don't encourage it because we prefer that links are obvious to the user...  If you wish to post an image and then a link next to it, you can do so...  If you simply want to name a link like RocketGrannie did above, you can do that, although I generally think it is preferable to just post the bare link...

Hello Budfred and Rocket Grannie

 

Sorry for the confusion and late reply.

Budfred, yes I did mean somewhere to upload an image to.

I remember now your site doesn't work like that.

 

The only reason I asked is that I had a screen print of an error message, saved on my desktop ( Issue resolved now).

On other sites, in the forum editor, I can click on an image icon and browse to the relevant image to insert inline with the forum topic text.

I find sometimes an image helps explanation.

 

Anyway, thanks for responding to my question.

We will be converting to MyBB most likely in the near future and it may have more of those capabilities...  I know there are security reasons for limiting this, but the option of hosting the image on another site usually gets around this...
