Posting images is simple

This is where you click when making a new thread/post.

If you want to add pics you can make replies and click the upload button there.

Once you upload the images You MUST click Thumbnail or full image and it will insert it into your post.

The thumbnail button will below the post you are writing.

I'm not getting the option of thumbnail or full image. It's just trying to upload and not doing it. That's why I keep attaching imgur urls... which I hate doing.

I keep getting file to large error. It is a picture I took with my phone

That just means the file is larger then I can set it for.

I suggest using Flickr or imggur to upload the pics. I like flickr because I can control and delete them later.

OK. I'll admit I'm not the sharpest tool in the shed, but Ithis has to be the most unintuitive way to add pictures. When the "Add Picture" icon is clicked, the prompt box asks for a "URL". I am trying to access my hard drive for the picture.

I tried the "post.png" with no luck.

Any help would be appreciated.

OK.
I did everything and have the post composed. However, I never had the ... "Under the box where you post you will see a button that says "Attach Files". - click here to put pics on the thread." ... appear. I was afraid I would be embarrassed with a typical "user error". However, the "ATTACH FILES" box never appeared.
