IMAGES

To add an image to your post simply use the tags. The button for this appears above the area that you type when you create a new post. You use it like this:

[CODE][img]http://cache.jalopnik.com/assets/resources/2008/03/2009-Volkswagen-Scirocco.jpg[/CODE]

So by typing everything you see in the green font above into your post, you would see the following:



If you want to add one of your own images to the forum, that you may have taken with your camera, for example. Then simply upload the image to your flickr or photobucket account or use tinypic (http://www.tinypic.com (You dont need an account with Tinypic), all of these sites are free to use. Simply visit the site, upload your photo and then cut in paste the link using the same method above. Simples.

VIDEOS
Very similar to the above except you use the [youtube]tag. Used like this:

Code:
 [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vj4xsvpyn7E[/youtube]
The link you use is what appears in the browser address bar on the youtube page with the video on it. DONT use the "embed" options that Youtube provides.

Hiya,

feeling quite thick right now. I've followed your instructions here for putting an image on the post and all I can see is the word 'image' how do you actually get a picture to show up?

cheers

Wally

You were trying to display your image folder rather than the actual image Url. Now edited and you can see it works!
