      Seems that a number of us are perplexed by URL codes and posting images to the forums. So I’m starting this thread so we can share what we know.

      First of all, if you want to post a photo in the body of your post, rather than attaching it to your post, you will need to get the URL code for your photo. This means that you have uploaded your photo to the web somewhere, whether its to Facebook, Picasa or anywhere else.

      Once you have the URL code, click on img above, a pop up box will open, delete the http:// that appears in the box and then paste in the URL code and press ok. Another pop up opens, just press ok for that too.

      Now how to get URL codes.

      For Google Chrome: It is so easy!

      1. Just alt-click on the photo you want to copy, about half way down the pop up menu, click on the command “Copy image URL”

      2. Now go to the forum where you want to add your photo, click the img button, delete the http:// and paste the URL code.

      3. Press ok and ok. A string of letters/words will appear in the body of you message, but when you press submit, your photo will appear.

      If you know how to get the URL code for other browsers, please add the instructions to this thread to help out the rest of our members. Note the URL code is not the same as the web address.

        How to get URL code in Explorer:

        1. Alt-click on the photo you want to use
        2. A pop up box opens, at the very bottom click on properties
        3. About half want down in the box that opens you should see Address (URL): Copy the address string that you see.
        4. Click OK to close the pop up box
        5. Now go to the forum where you want to add your photo, click the img button, delete the http:// and paste the URL code.
        6. Press ok and ok. A string of letters/words will appear in the body of you message, but when you press submit, your photo will appear.

              Thanks so much Maggi.
              Hopefully, a little less hair will be torn out as we get used to our new format.
