Attaching Photos to a Thread - read this if you need assistance.
DebB wanted me to post some info here on attaching personal photos directly to the site. First off this site uses the flash plugin to manage the upload processes. For this and other security considerations make sure you have the latest version installed from here.
Here is the skinny. First thing is to click the image button in the formatting bar.
You are then given an inline menu which lets you choose from computer or url.
On the from computer tab you select files and find them on your computer.
The click the upload button to send them to the site.
If you are in simple edit mode this will put the pictures attach code into your post automatically.
If you are in advanced mode it will show you the manage attachments window showing of all your uploaded files to date with the option of dragging them into the attachment window and clicking add inline then done to include the new uploads or old uploads into your post.
For using a picture directly from another website then do add picture in posting tools here and choose from URL instead of from computer and paste the URL and leave the store local box checked. The url should end with .jpg .gif. or .png The copy image url feature differs a tad from browser to browser. For instance in Firefox when I right click on the jalapeņo to the left on this site. I get "Copy Image Location" as a choice which is what you want.
Hope that helps.
