Question on bbcode for image posting

Post by WheelingWV » Thu Sep 10, 2020 8:36 pm

Greetings,

I’ve tried to use BBCode to post images without success. I’ve uploaded my images to Imgur but cannot figure out how to post them to the forum. I’ve tried placing these on either side of the URL Image... Any idea what I might be doing wrong? Thanks so much. Best wishes... Mark (WheelingWV)
Mistakes are like knives. They can help us or they can hurt us. It all depends on whether we grab ‘em by the handle or by the blade.

You have to place your code in between the img tags. It is sign that looks like a little mountain and sun above where you post. From right to left the 9th symbol. Or 3rd from the left of the "Normal" drop down.

If your pictures are small enough you should be able to upload them directly here. You just go down under your posting box and click on options- then attachments- It does have some size and pixel restrictions.

You may be able to just copy and paste the img code from imgur if it has that code for an option.

Another option for you is VGY.ME, It’s a photo sharing site; very easy to use. After uploading your photos select the IMG link then copy and paste it into the dialog box on TalkBlade or any other forum.

Mark, if you're using Imgur on your PC, the right column gives you different options for posting your pics. Choose the message boards and forums option. It will generate a link that you paste into your post. When you submit your post, the link will automatically turn into the picture.

Thank you, JulesVane!👍 I’ve been trying to do this from my iPhone, that could be the problem. I’ll have to dust off my pc and give that a stab (pun intended). Thanks for your help.

I’ve had the Imgur app on my iPhone and can’t use it at all! Just sign in on your PC and it’s the world of difference easy.

Thanks, Partner. I look forward to posting pics of my Latamas (after the final five arrive in a few days). Thanks again.👍
