Embed images


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: ---[img][/img]
--- End code ---

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 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: ---[url=][img][/img][/url]
[url=]BANANAS![/url] by [url=]Many & Varied[/url], on Flickr
--- End code ---
