How to insert an image in a post

When logged into the forum and creating a new post, you should see the option to attach a file at the bottom of your post content area.


Once you've chosen and attached the file you want to use, you then have the option to Add to Post.


This will place the image in the actual post wherever your cursor is. If you choose not to Add to Post, the file will show below your post as a file attachment.

Adding an image when replying to a post is a little different. Next to the Post button, you'll see a More Reply Options button.


Clicking More Reply Options will take you to a new screen with the same set up for adding an image as when creating a new post.
