Posting images is quite easy! You can use the forum's attachment function to attach pictures. Your images will be thumbnailed and attached inline to your post/thread. See the button in the screen capture below? You can find the "Manage Attachment" option every time you write a thread or response, just scroll down below the post editor. Click it, and a popup will spawn. Select a max. of 5 images and click Upload. Just close the window then and submit your post or thread. Voila!
Alternatively, if your pictures are hosted with a free image hosting service, you can directly use the image link and wrap
tags around it (remove the . before the img). Please make sure not to hotlink off other people's sites though, we don't want to leech their bandwidth. Use ours instead.
Just for everyone to know-- any tech problems or questions can be answered, nearly 100% of the time, by Vlad. He's brilliant when it comes to this stuff!! Never hesitate to ask questions!! Enjoy the Forum and all the cool things that come with it!!
OK, I'm still a bit lost. Where do I find the screen that has the ADDITIONAL OPTIONS menu? Is that part of my profile and options or is it on each page that I use when I start or respond to a thread?! I just don't see it....
Vlad- How do you post using your own pic? ie your water droplet
Nothing easier than that. Click the User CP link in the navigation bar above. That'll lead you directly to your User Control Panel. Then navigate to Edit Avatar link. There you can upload your own avatar from your computer, assuming it is within the maximum allowed size. 100x100 pixels is the maximum width and height, while 5KB is the max file size.
