    Here is a quick tutorial on how to post pictures into posts using the "Upload" feature of the forum (the picture lives on the forum's server), and not a hosting sight like photobucket..... Hopefully this will help to eliminate the Attachment XXXX that shows invalid link when someone clicks on it.



    Use the Go Advanced button

    Type response

    Click on Manage Attachments:

    This will bring up the page to see any pictures you have uploaded and to upload new ones:

    Click the Upload button in the top right, then click Browse to select the file from you computer, if you click the + next to the Upload button, you can select additional pics, one at a time.

    Once you have them all chosen, click upload and they will appear at the bottom of the screen:

    added.jpg

    Click Insert Inline and they will be added to your post.

    One other nice feature is, if you have uploaded a picture in the past, and want to use it again, follow the first two steps to get the window showing all previous uploads. Check the box in the lower right corner of the ones you would like to use, click and drag them to the bottom, click on insert inline and they will be added to your post.

    When you click on Insert Inline, it will post the tags all in a row across the screen, which means the pictures will sit side by side. If you want them stacked, move your cursor between the .../ATTACH][ATTACH.... (.../ATTACH]RIGHT HERE[ATTACH....) and hit the Enter key twice. This will stack them, and put 1 blank line between the pictures...... I can't use what the actual code looks like, because it will attach the picture..... once you see it, it will make since.

    This is the method I use to post pictures, including the ones in this post, and it works well.

    Drag and dropping like what other forums have is much quicker and easier in some cases.
