Title: Embed images
Post by: nikki on October 12, 2013, 12:56:34 PM
To display an image in your post it must have already been uploaded onto the internet somewhere. My mistake, apparently you can add images as attachments. We'll see how this goes - please keep your files to a moderate size so they don't take up too much server space...

Other ways you can do it:

You can use the 'insert image' button in the editing menu to display an image. Just wrap the URL of the image in the img shortcode like this:
Code: [Select]
[img]http://farm4.staticflickr.com/3756/9434637193_b761da3eb1.jpg[/img]
(http://farm4.staticflickr.com/3756/9434637193_b761da3eb1.jpg)

Some photo sharing services provide you with BBCode embed code that you can paste directly into your post.
For example: Flickr.

Go to the photo's page on Flickr (http://www.flickr.com/photos/manyandvaried/9434637193/#) and click on the 'More ways to share' icon (rectangle with an arrow near the bottom right of the photo's black surround).

In the pop-up, click 'Grab the HTML/BBCode'

Select the 'BBCode' radio button

Copy and paste the resulting code into your post

Code: [Select]
