When you use the attachment manager you are "uploading" to YORF.
When you place images within your text, you are not uploading but rather
"inline linking" as those images remain at their original location and
are only displayed here within your post; that's why the image must be
on a website to begin in with.

Oh, Ok... that makes sense (sorta) I don't have Flikr or whatever (my wife uses Snapfish but I have NO idea how to work that) and anyway I just take my build thread pics on the digital cam and save em to 'my pics' in windows and then upload as I do the threads. The other sites have a 'paperclip' icon all on it's own that allows you to put the pics you just uploaded whereever you want in the post, just designate where with the cursor. I guess they don't have that feature over here or have it turned off.

Oh well... thanks anyway, I appreciate it!

Thanks again! OL JR

Can anybody give me the rundown?? TIA! OL JR



1). Open a account at PhotoBucket.com ( http://photobucket.com/) - it's free.

2). Upload your photos.

3). Mouse-over the photo you want to past into your thread on YORF. Choose "Link Options" and deselect everything but the "Full Size" box under the "Image for Bulletin Boards and Forums" heading.

4). Copy the URL in the box for the image you want to paste, write your caption in the thread, and paste the URL under your caption and it should look like this:

That's what I did, since my anglefire links were hit or miss. I just signed up to photobucket and plopped in the pics!

Thanks guys... I appreciate it...

Sounds a little more involved than I want to mess with just to put the pic in the post. Just leaving them at the bottom is good enough. If people can't figure out what they're looking at then why bother I guess... LOL

Thanks again! OL JR
