Inserting an image into your post (Guide) [Updated for 2017]


Recommended Posts

This is a little guide for everyone, hopefully it will help out the new users to our forums.
 

Insert URL Link:
There are TWO METHODS that will allow you to insert an image into your post if the image has already been uploaded to a website and has a full URL that you can use.

The easiest by far is to simply copy the URL to the image that ends in either; .jpg/.png/.gif etc, and paste it in the content post box, press enter and the image will be displayed. EASY!

 

The second and long winded way is as follows:
 

File from URL:
Using this method will allow you to INSERT an image url from a link into a forum post.

 

  1. Click the insert other media.

  2. When the box appears click 'Insert Image from URL'.

  3. Another box will appear

  4. Once you are finished creating your post, click the Post Message button.

     

It's a similar process for 'Attachments'.

 

Using this method will allow you to upload an image from your computer into a forum post (known as an attachment).

 

  1. You can either Drag files to attach, or choose files...

  2. When the box appears simply browse your computer and select an image you wish to upload
  3. Once uploaded, you'll see the images you've uploaded below the posting box.
  4. Click the + to insert the image into your post.
