How can we post an attachment "inside" the message in this site when we post either a new post or a reply... versus just having the attachment as a separate item at the bottom of the message that the viewer has to click on to see it? I'm just dying to be able to do that. I have seen huge attachment such as "Print Screen" right along with the written message. If I could do that, it would really impress my wife:cool:

The attachment feature of this forum gives you the ability to attach files of certain types to your posts. This could be an image, a text document, etc. There will be a limit to the file size of any attachments you make, as the forums should not be used as an extension of your hard disk!

To attach a file to a new post, simply click the [Browse] button at the bottom of the post composition page, and locate the file that you want to attach from your local hard drive.

Only certain types of files may be attached: these are the valid file extensions for files to be attached to this forum: .

After posting, the attachment will show up in the body of your message. To view the contents of the attachment (if it is not already displayed) simply click the filename link that appears next to the attachment icon

I realize now that what i posted is not what you want. In order for the attach to show in the body with out clicking the link you have to upload the file to somewhere lik Photobucket and then enter so---
If this is not correct i am sure someone will correct me.

They uploaded their picture to tinypic.com and copied the URL, then used this in their post
PHP:
[IMG]http://tinypic.com/j661qu.jpg[/IMG]
You could also upload it as an attachment here, get the URL of the image, then edit your post to use the [ IMG ] tag with it.
