This is the procedure for posting a pic to the site.
Attachments must be smaller than 10MB each.

Start a post and open the full editor.
[ img ]


Click on the "Img" button at the top of the editor. {img}{/img} will appear in the editor window.
[ img ]



Between the {img} and {/img}, type the URL/internet location of the image you want to post.
These images must be hosted somewhere, like photobucket, etc.
Then press either PREVIEW, or SUBMIT.

If you want to add an attachment, press the "Attachments" tab beneath the editor.

Press "Add files" and locate the image you want to attach. These can be located on your hard drive.
Once the image is attached, it should show in the list, and the status symbol on the right should indicate green.

If you want to place the attachment in a particular place in the post, place your cursor at that location, then select "Place inline"
This is useful if you have several attachments and want them in different places in the post.

I pull the image from photobucket first though. I have to copy to clipboard and the hit the URL option and then "done", then I pull up the thumbnail for the site and do what I said in the previous post I made.

Basically what it sounds like is you find a pic on the internet, copy the URL of the pic, then paste it between the {img}{/img}
You are saving the typing.
