Well, that pretty much says it all. How do I insert an image directly into the post, as opposed to putting it in as an attachment.

I tried saving it on imgur and using the image shortcut above, but that doesn't seem to work.

Thanks,
Mike

Thanks. I tried doing that, but didn't get anything. See right here:





I also tried adding ".jpg" at the end, but still didn't get anything. Here is the link I used (which should show the image of the Garden):

Your problem is that imgur isn't a direct picture link. The link you tried using is a page, not a picture.

Open the link you used, right click on the image and copy image address. Use that.

Thanks, I got it!

A TP to you both, and a second one in 30 minutes to Erik.

1) Click the mona lisa button. This will create two img tags: [*img][/img] (There won't be a *. I'm using the * to break the functionality and show text here)
2) In between the two tags, paste your image link: https://i.imgur.com/Ea7mRX1.jpg for example

So the final line will be [*img]https://i.imgur.com/Ea7mRX1.jpg[/img]
