  • How To Insert Images and Videos

    Reminder: We do not permit "hotlinking" to images on other sites. To reference an image on another site, you can provide a simple link (without using the forum image feature) or follow the instructions below.

    Still Images

    There are three ways to reference or display an image in your posts:
    1. Provide a link to an image on another website: Click on the link icon in the editor and enter or copy-paste the link to the image as a link.
    2. Upload as an attachment: Scroll down to and click on the Manage Attachments link below the edit box.
    3. Insert as an inline image or thumbnail: If you're not using the Enhanced WYSIWYG Editor mode (set this in your User Settings), click on the Switch Editor Mode icon at the upper right of the edit box to swirch into WYSIWYG. Then click on the Images icon and follow directions.
    To display an embedded video from common video sites such as Hulu, YouTube, Vimeo, Dailymotion, Metacafe, Google, and Facebook,
    1. Obtain the link to the video from the site
    2. Click on the Video icon and copy the link into the space provided.
    Note that this does not upload the actual video to this site so it neither violates copyright nor takes up space on our server. It merely formats the code to embed the video from the site within your post. The actual video remains on and is served by YouTube, etc.

      You can use the IMG BBCode to link to images on sites such as Photobucket if you have an account at one of these sites.

      Below the Quick Reply box, at bottom right, Click on Go Advanced. This will load the full editor. Scroll down to the bottom of the Full Editor and you will see the Manage Attachments button.

      Oh yes... that's a security measure for new members. I've just promoted you to Full Member so you should see the option now.
