POST AN IMAGE IN TSG

1. Start a new post or reply to an existing post.
2. Just above the submit button you will see the attach file section. Click the choose button and navigate to the location on your hard drive where you have the gif or jpeg file you want to post. Highlight the file and click open, then submit your post.
3. At the botton of the post you just submitted, you will see the word attachment, followed by a link with the name of the gif or jpeg file you selscted in the previous step. Click on the link and it will open a separate window showing just youe image. Highlight the complete address in the address field of your browser and hit ctrl-c on your keyboard. This will copy the address to the clipboard. Close the window to take you back to your post.
4. On the top right of your post, you will see four links, (report\ quote\ edit\ (#6). Click edit.
5. Add the following line to your original post?.<img src=?paste url you copied from step 3 here?> and click the save changes button to resubmit your post.
6. Your image should now be displayed.
Is this the process your using to include an image in your post?
BTW I have not been able to get this to work lately,thought it was me. Give it a try and we'll see.

BTW Brindle's advice only works if you use the Post Reply button, not the Submit Quick Reply! ;)
