A new member was having problems with putting pictures with his posts and a long time member had never used the "Insert Image" feature and needed a tutorial so that prompts this thread. This tutorial covers the Desktop site interface - the APP or mobile site interfaces will be slightly different.
There are two ways to put a picture with a post:
In the Advanced Editor there is an Insert Image button that allows you to insert an image that is hosted on a publically accessible internet site.
This only works if you have the URL to the image itself; it does not work if the URL is to a page wit the image on it.
Good URL - <https://www.thorforums.com/forums/members/7035-albums443-picture1988.png>
Bad URL - <https://www.thorforums.com/forums/members/7035-albums443-picture1988.html>
The image is inserted in line with the text of the post at the point of the cursor.
Once you press the button a pop-up dialog box prompts you to type or paste the picture URL:
After clicking OK you will see this is the text area of the post:
The picture will show up in the post:
The second method is to ATTACH a picture to your post. This also works with other files such as PDFs. These files must reside on your PC.
Again, from the Advanced Editor interface, you will now select the Paper Clip icon.
This opens a pop-up page where you can choose files on your PC that you want to attach.
After selecting these files you must click the UPLOAD button to actually attach them to the post. Then you can click the "Close this window button".
The attached files will show up at the end of the post.
