Can I add images to my posts?
Yes, images can be shown in your posts. However, there is no facility at present for uploading images directly to this board. Therefore you must link to an image stored on a seperate image host, we recommend http://www.photobucket.com or http://www.muchos.co.uk You cannot link to pictures stored on your own computer.
Uploading your images to an image host
First sign up with either http://www.photobucket.com or http://www.muchos.co.uk you will be asked to provide details such as a username and password. Once you have signed up follow the instructions to upload images from your cmoputer.
Adding an image to a post
To display an image, you must surround the web address pointing to the image with [img] tags. For example:
To get the image web address you can copy the code provided by your image host. If you are not using an image host or they do not provide the code you can copy the web address from the address bar of your web browser. To do this first find the image, then right click on it and select ''view image'. Then select the address shown in the address bar at the top of your browser and copy and paste it into your message.
Copy & Paste
To copy and paste the web address first highlight it by holding down the left mouse button and dragging the mouse along the address. You can then copy it by pressing the 'ctrl' and 'c' buttons on your keyboard simultaniously, and paste it into your message by pressing 'ctrl' and 'v'. Alternatively once you have highlighted the address you can select 'copy' from the edit menu on you browser and then paste from the same menu.
