I've tried and tried. Spent hours and cant get it happe ing. I use photobucket and got the url or whatever that says forums, but all I get is a paste of nonsense when I try to post an image. MG, why is it so difficult to add an image?

One trick I have found helpful is to ensure the url includes .jpg or .png at the end. Then the "img" brackets on either end work fine.

Example (purposely leaving the first "img" bracket off so the text will post.)

Good luck!

Thanks Jeff! I worked it out eventually (after much cursing and hair removal)
I got the hang of it now!

So I've been using photobucket so I can post pics. I've got maybe a dozen pictures there and now they want to screw money out of me to store pictures on their lousy site.

Well °☆▪︎`#%& you photo#$%&×t!!!

Anyone know where I can store photos without some crumb sticking their hand out?

Either that or is there some other voodoo magic that will put a picture in a post here?

Why does something as basic as including a picture in a post have to be such a nightmare?

I know this is probably one of them rhetorical questions, but...

The software the site is running is from 2005 and the owner doesn’t want to pay for storage of photos, which is his right and perfectly reasonable.
