I'm struggling with embedding images in my posts.

I've tried uploading to photobucket and imgur and copying the url into the insert image icon but all attempts have failed.

Does anyone know what i'm doing wrong or know of an alternative method?

Thanks in advance.

The forum is having problems since yesterday, so maybe it's not the best time to try new things, because it could be that you're doing something wrong or it could be that the forum isn't working properly.

Anyway, If you uploaded the photo on an external website, you just need to copy the url of the image. Make sure that you are really copying it. If you use photobucket you need to click next to where it says "direct" and it doesn't copy the link til the website marks for a few seconds in yellow the link. Then you need to click on the squared icon with the mountains and the sun here in the window where you write your posts, a pop up will show you where do you have to put the link, you paste the url, click ok, and that's all

That's what i've been doing, so perhaps it is the website.

I'll try again another time

What's the problem exactly?

You could try to upload them directly to the forum, but to do that you need to resize them, and the process is more complicated in my opinion. You need to click in "go advanced" then in the paper clip that will appear at the top of the window where you write the posts. A pop up will emerge, you need to upload the image by selecting it from your pc clicking in the "choose file" button and then click on "upload".

If you want to see the pic embedded in the post, if you use that method then you need to do all that, and then click on the paper clip again, this time the attachments will appear and you just need to select them.

You could try to attach them from a website too clicking in "go advanced" then in the paper clip that will appear at the top of the window where you write the posts. A pop up will emerge, and then you paste the url under where it says "upload an image from a url"
