How do I post images to the forums?

Post by Nerva »

Context: I've seen members post images to the forums, but I'm not a BBCode wizard, or I don't have dedicated storage to host pictures from. As a safety and security measure, the uploading of attachments has been disabled on these forums. However, several image hosts forums are supporting BBCode.

Question: How do I upload pictures to the forums?

Surround the "Direct Link" of the image using [img] tags. Or paste as Thumbnail.

You can "Screen Snip" images from your desktop and Ctrl+V them into the upload panel.

If you're using the service as a guest, it'll sometimes generate the BBCode with advertisements, like this:

In this case, [ur(1)=httpx://statewideinventory.org/french-car-brands]french automaker since 1919[/ur(l)] is spam.

Please delete spam if you're using this service.

If you don't care for third-party bannering, as an alternate, you can use image hosting services like Imgur - https://imgur.com/ - by posting the "Share" link.
