    Default How to include pictures in a post on DR1

    I don't have a problem putting a picture in a post, but apparently some of you do. Here's how I do it. If this doesn't work for you, we need to figure out why it doesn't work for you. Hope this helps.

    Step 1:

    If you "Post a new thread" you are already in advanced editing mode. If you reply to an existing post within a forum, you need to select "Go Advanced". Your editor window should look like this.

    Step 2:

    Write some words, or not. Then select "insert image" button.

    Step 3:

    Choose either an image from another website or from your computer. I generally tend post pics that are already on my computer or ones I have downloaded to my computer first.

    Step 4:

    Press "Select Files" and then select the picture(s) you wish to post to the message

    Select the picture(s) you wish to post

    Step 5:

    Press "Upload Files":

    Step 6:

    There is no step 6, you are done.

    I am only allowed to post pics from a URL. I think as a Mod you have the privilege of posting from your computer.

    Robert explained it that if it's from a URL it is a link and is not on his server, thus no liability to him.

    I used to use tinypic but no longer works for me, and have tried half a dozen more and can't get any of them to work.

    I wasn't aware of that restriction.

    Trying yet again - this time with Imgur



    If this doesn't work perhaps you can unmod yourself Cdn Gringo and work out how the rest of us can make it work!

    I don't post a lot of pictures and since I don't have an account on any of those picture posting sites I couldn't have used a URL. I was sure I was able to post images from my pc before I was a given the key to the playground. I may be mistaken. Robert will pop in eventually and set me straight.

    testing - nope the best I can do is post a link to the file on imgur. The option to have the forum site download the image and reference it locally generates an error.

    Maybe making progress. With the same file as uploaded to imgur, I now get a file too large error. Let me go see if I can figure out the size limit here on DR1. Can't be size related, file is only 200K

    Success. Let me duplicate the effort a few more times to make sure it works reliably and I'll get back to you.
