After uploading the attachment you have to click the paper clip icon and select the attachment

You can also use an external host like Flickr...

I put my pictures on Photobucket and Flicker, then use the "[IMG]" BBC code tags to place pictures into my posts.

Like this:






As I move around the country (I drive a truck) my internet connection changes. Sometimes the images won't load properly, and I suspect it is related to a combination of poor internet service and possibly that when I clear the browser cache it just won't load the images.

What's really weird is there will be times when I'm in or near a major city, the wi-fi thing shows I have 4G and an excellent connection, and I can't get on, let alone get web pages to load.

Then I will be in some remote place like West Texas where I-10 and I-20 meet, the signal will barely show one bar on the edge network and navigating the web will be like changing channels on the TV.

And when I'm at home I have an ADSL connection, and even though my house is at the end of the line a very long way from the CO I can download the equivalent of a dual layer DVD in a minute or two.

I dunno, maybe its a Communist plot or the Aliens are messing with me.

You don't *have* to click on the paperclip- as long as you submit the attachment form, all photos will be displayed at the bottom of your post.

The problem is that I posted the photo elsewhere on the forum, and cannot figure out how to reference back to it. Forum reply will not let me post the same photo twice;

Just change the file name then re-upload it. Or upload it to a user gallery.

Why not right click on the picture, select "View Image Info", copy the highlighted text, then wrap it with [IMG] tags?
