How would I add photos to a post? Do I need to insert it, or can I copy photos in to the text box?
Thanks!

A straight insert or copy won't do. The image has to be available on the internet, on a linkable site. You need to first store the photo somewhere online, such as Flickr, or Photobucket.

Then, use the IMG tag found in the boxes above the text window as you create an entry (along with the font, url , etc, tags). You need to copy the image tag information from the photo's location and put it between the img tags.

Basically, it will look something like this:

[im*g]www.photobucket.com/name of user/name of file[/im*g]

note that in my example above, there is an extra asterisk in the image tag so the code won't activate. Yours will not have those asterisks.

Thanks! Now it makes sense why I couldn't figure it out :)

You can wrap examples in code tags too

Code: Select all

[img]www.photobucket.com/name of user/name of file[/img]
or just check the "Disable BBCode in this post" box, like I did in the post bellow.
