    You can link to an image using the IMG-tags; e.g. {IMG}Image-URL{/IMG} - replace the {} with [].

    Alternatively you can attach an image by scrolling down to the Additional Options section below and selecting Manage Attachments. You can then select images to attach.

    Does that actually work?

    It might if you use the WYSIWYG editor but doesn't with the standard (or basic) editor.

    Yeah, I've just tested it, you have to use the full WYSIWYG editor to be able to use that method.

    Still no. For me it only works with the WYSIWYG editor.

    Which is the same as using the IMG-tags as per my first post.

    Copying the URL doesn't display the image, it only creates a URL out of it via auto-fitting with the URL-tags.

    I cannot recreate any of what you have said outside of the WYSIWYG editor.

    What You See Is What You Get.

    It is the editor type, UserCP > Edit Options > Miscellaneous Options > Message Editor Interface.

    There should be no reason you cannot get an image to display using the IMG-tags, see http://forum.allaboutcircuits.com/misc.php?do=bbcode#imgcode

    @tibbles

    wysiwyg = what you see is what you get

    As for the format, are you uploading to AAC and then using the URL for that uploaded image? Under the advanced options, go to manage attachments. Browse to the image you want (presumably from your local PC), click on it, then upload. Right click on the uploaded image to get its url at AAC, etc. as described above.

    Some people also use you user album which is like a local Photobucket. Works in a similar way where it gives you a fixed URL for the image which you then place in-line with your message using the IMG-tags.

    That is a great suggestion, Dave. I had not thought of using that option for posting to threads.

    Thanks.
