How to post pictures?
Alright I'm sure this is answered somewhere but I used the search function for 15 minutes and cannot find anything.
I have put pictures in a post before using the image attachment function. Sometimes they show up as a picture, and sometimes they show up as a link.
How can I make them show up as a photo, not as a link?

Upload an image to photobucket and use the [IMG] code. LIke so..

If you're talking about not using photobucket or another hosted site, then disregard this..I don't know how the image attachments work on here as I've never used it.

Since this website doesn't have a mega-dedicated server, your not allowed to upload pictures from your computer because that would mean the website would have to host them; AKA they would be sitting in some server somewhere. Instead you have to post an image that is already hosted on the internet, either via some website or you can host it yourself with websites like photobucket or imageshack. Imageshack is nice since you don't have to register.

Just use the manage attachments option that is at the bottom of the advanced box. No links necessary and you can upload straight from the computer without using an outside service. It works wonderfully and it allows others who may not be able to see images from image hosting sites the ability to see said images. Like this totally non-snowboard related picture uploaded straight from a work computer that has no ability to see imageshack or flickr or photobucket pictures. Enjoy!

that's what i'm confused about. I do that, and sometimes the picture shows up and sometimes just a link. :dunno:

Weird. I have never had that problem at all. The attachment manager has always worked excellently for me. Perhaps you chose the "Upload File from a URL" option, thus creating a link? :dunno: Wish I had a more definitive answer for you, but unfortunately, I don't.

Using this function, you can only upload a single image for it to display. If you add two or more, they all show up as links.

That's exactly what I needed to know! Thanks for the in-depth explanation of the options!
