I am certain I did it wrong because I attached the jpeg. I am researching how to do it correctly and will pass on my findings

First, everyone should read the two user guides saved for everyone's reference. they specifically address this and many other forum function questions. a really detailed guide is linked as the second or third section at the top of the forum. a more concise quick guide is saved as the HELP tab just below the forum header. Every member should read those.

Now for the pictures, you have multiple options:

- You can attach them using BBC code - the IMG tags that look like this [ ]

- You can attach them using HTML code - the IMG tags that look like this

- the forum has a rich text WIZYWIG editor enabled by default. this means that you can copy and paste already formatted text directly into a post, and the format will carry over. if a picture is already hosted online somewhere, you can highlight it, copy it and paste it directly into your post.

- Lastly, if you look in the additional options section at the bottom of every post, you will see an option that will allow you to upload images from your hard drive, directly onto our server as attachments. These attachments will be shown as scaled down thumbnails at the bottom of your post. to view them in full size, just click on the thumbnail after you have posted your post.

Good luck.

being the 'forum illiterate' person that I am, it took me the better part of 45+/- minutes to figure out how to post on the new forum. Some of it due to playing around with the new features, but mostly posting pics for WRUW Thursday. I eventually got them up though via photobucket - not too hard. I'm sure most folks won't have such a problem, but just wanted to share in case some do.

no grabbing of the link code. Read all the instructions and still needed to try it a few different ways... Such a cool move we just made. This is my last post here.
