This must be the most frequently asked FAQ ever. How do I post images? I am aware of the [img] tags. No links work. As an ordinary board user, am I debarred?

[When are we moving to Discourse as I offered to help where this is dead simple and just not an issue for people?]

I simply dragged and dropped a file into the editor, and it added it to the attachments for me. Image attached was done exactly in that manner. I went to the attachments section and told it to "place inline" to generate the inline link.

HI,

You can also start a reply, then select the Attachments tab down below.

The img tags work if you have a URL with a displayable image.

When you start a new thread or reply to one you will see the Attachments tab below the field where you enter your text. Click on that tab and then on the Add files button to open a file dialog. Select the image you want to include and click Open or double-click it. The file will appear in the attachment list and will be visible below your post for everyone to download. If you want to place an image inline with your text, set the text cursor to where you want the image to appear and click Place inline down in the attachment list next to the image you want to appear in your post.
When you're done it should look something like this:

Thank you all for great help. Much appreciated.

For some reason, using imgbox etc does not work for me with [imag] tags. Don't know why.

Hmm, this is odd. I just uploaded my logo to imgbox and copy and pasted the link from the src attribute in the img tag from the HTML code into the img tag here in the forum's bb-code and it works just fine:

Hi,

Is the image on a server that allows image hosting? Some servers disable that to avoid extra bandwidth.
