Showing Images In Forum
« on: January 05, 2014, 12:51:24 pm »
Some people are having problems displaying images so here is a solution .



Go to http://imgur.com/



Register  (It's FREE) - Once registered it is easy to upload images.

Once uploaded you can copy and paste a snippet of code which then shows your image in the forum.  8-)

I made an explanation somewhere already about that. I don't have enough space on the server to keep all yours pictures, sorry.

So upload it to a sharing photos service and place a link here.

When in a forum, I use the 'Quote' function to reveal the prevailing coding format:



  • Find a forum comment that successfully posted an image

  • Use the "Quote" link above it, as if you intended to use it in a new comment

  • Examine the code(s) around the link to reveal the format




Try it, and describe your experience and results.
