Help inserting an image into a forum post?
« on: May 02, 2018, 09:36:03 AM »
Hi folks

I read an old thread on how to post an image, but the instructions did not work for me.  I need someone to please explain it to me like I am five years old.  :)

So I click on the 'Insert Image' button, and I get the [img] -- [img] brackets, but when I go to copy/paste a picture in, it will not let me paste it.  The 'paste' function is grayed out/not functioning.  The pictures I want to paste in are on the desktop of my computer, not from the web.

??

Thanks

If you're trying to add a photo from your device/computer, use Attachments and other options

Click "Choose File" and then select your photo.

If you want to post a picture from your computer that is not hosted at an internet-accessible URL then you need to include it as an attachment. See "Attachments and other options" when you make a new post.


.... Neo beat me to it ...
