how do I upload an image to a forum post?

Recommended Posts

Hello, I'm fairly new to the forums and I want to post a photo on one of my threads. But I don't know how to upload photos with my forum threads and posts. I know how to upload photos to my normal geocaching logs but I don't know how to upload photos to the forums. Any help please?

You don't actually 'upload' an image to a forum post as much as link to an existing photo that has been uploaded somewhere else on the web.

 

After your image has been uploaded elsewhere (any of the various image hosting sites, or perhaps on an unused cache page you 'own') copy the URL and paste it into the 'Insert Image' dialog box you get when you click on the green blob icon in the toolbar above the text box.

Just click on the 'Inset Image' button at the top of the post.

 

These need to be web links (not uploading to the forum software) so you may need to host your picture at a free image hosting server, imageshack, pohobucket etc and use that link.

Or... You can also use HTML tags

 

Sample LINK

 

Use the IMG tag before the link and the /IMG tag after the link

 

This works on most all forums. It worked for me on this forum (unless they changed something)
