How to add a picture to a post

There's two ways to add a picture to a post :
The first is to to upload it from your pc to our server wich is done with the 'add attachments' button you will find below the post itself..see the picture :

click reply to a post you want to reply to ..( or open a new topic button if you want a total new thread..) ..
after that a screen opens where you can your text in and can add things like links to urls etc

When clicked youll get a dialogue box wth wich you can search your PC for the pic of your choice ..by clicking it will be uploaded to our server and added
to your new post .. after one or two tries you'll manage to do it withouth any problem ..its a bit as Vbulletin forums ,but not difficult.

To link a pic it already needs to bbe on the internet on some page somewhere ..
what you do is right click a pic and copy its location adress ...for example a pic is found here:

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/c ... _stamp.jpg

copy and paste this adress and place in between the IMG brackets : (ill do that here with a dot added to stop the pic from showing so you can see the code:

[.img]http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/8/8b/Rama_8_in_stamp.jpg/489px-Rama_8_in_stamp.jpg[/img]

If i now remove the dot from the first [img] block the pic wil show ..

Hope you understand the logic ..practice it once or twice and your ready to place linked pictures..

Try to avoid Photobucket as a source .. as a source its lousy , pics disappearing after two three months from there ...

Since I just bought ca new tablet, y'all are going to have to teach me how to do it. My old tablet had no mouse features or where you could do a wireless mouse from. My new one has a mouse pad and blue tooth thingamajig.
