How do I insert photos into a posting?

I have been looking/searching on the Thor Forum site and have not been able to find any instructional information as to how to actually use the features available to members to insert photos, etc. into a posting.
Am I missing some tab somewhere that provides this information?

Are you using a Mac, Windows, or a phone?
Look for the paperclip above the text box. That'll allow you to choose the pic you want to upload.
After that: it depends on what you are using...

I typically visit with an iPad so your experience may be different. But at the bottom of the page you see when typing youíll see a paper clip. If you click on that itíll take you to your photo library and you can select the photo you want to use. Select it, click done and itíll be attached.

Step 1 in the editing window click Go Advanced. Unless you are in advanced editing the attachment feature will no appear regardless of the system you are using.

Like most anything computer or electronic related now-a-days you are magically supposed to know how to operate it out of the box and know exactly what all those funny looking pictures do.

In reality, this forum is based on the same forum software platform as a large majority of other forums so documentation is readily available on the Interwebs for the software, but it isn't specific to this particular forum so it is easy to get lost. But that's what questions are for.

To answer your specific question about picture insertion: there are two ways to add pictures to a post, both require your post editor to be in "Advanced Mode". You can setup your profile to always open the editor in Advanced Mode, or you can just click the "Go Advanced" button:



Once in Advance Mode you can insert a picture located on a publicly accessible location on the Internet using the Picture Icon:


This will open a pop-up window where you can paste the picture's location such as for the above picture.

The other method is to attach one or more pictures to the post from a location on your PC using the Attach Icon:


This will open a pop-up window which allows you to attach and upload files from your PC. These pictures will appear as attachments and the end of your post:

I use Windows 10 when I'm at work.
After you've chosen a picture: hit the upload button, and the computer gibberish that is the picture; will show up underneath that box.
Just drag and drop it in your text box.

Thank you. What I am gathering from this is that I cannot actually insert the photo itself, just the link. My intent was to type a little text, then insert the applicable photo, a little more text with another photo...to show the steps to getting through the dash access and at the battery. My experience was quite different than what I had seen on videos and other Forum posts. I had a cable tray running across the leading edge of the exposed deck which reduced the plywood area by 25% and the opening was not 14" square. it was 14" side to side, but only 13" front to back. I thought this might be of some interest to others.

Thanks to all of you who responded. I am a little dense from time to time, and I was also not trusting the prompts I was seeing. I just needed a little faith in the system.
Now I need to see if I can insert text in between photos.

You can only insert text between pictures if they are INSERTED, NOT ATTACHED. Attachments are always at the end of the message.

To insert a picture, it has to be hosted on the Internet.

Now to really stir the pot:

Once attachments are uploaded to the forum you can insert then in the body of the text. For example:

The attached picture in my previous post was a picture of the attachment upload pop-up. Since that picturer is now hosted on this forum I can go to my User Control Panel (User CP in the upper left), and al the way at the bottom of the left menu is an "Attachments" choice. Click on that.
Now you will see a list of all your attachments.
Click on the on you want to insert.
Copy the URL for the attachment. In this case it is: https://www.thorforums.com/forums/at...8&d=1619276495
Now you can Insert that attachment into a message by pasting it in the Insert Picture dialog box:


And now the picture I previously uploaded as an attachment is inserted into the body of this message.
