Inserting images in posts

To insert to an image into a post you need to know its URL.

Once you have this, click on the image icon and paste the URL in the pop-up field.

Alternatively, just use the [img] and [/img] tags by placing the URL between them.

The URL for the image icon above is https://www.lug.ie/forum/img/photo.gif so to achieve we would write...

[img]https://www.lug.ie/forum/img/photo.gif[/img]

Remember, images typically are in .jpg, .gif or .png format so your URL should end in one of these or another image format.

Flickr

If you have a Flickr account it is easy to share your image by clicking on the share icon and including the BB Code in your post.

If you do not have Flickr we can help.

email your photos to hello@lug.ie and we will put it up on the community's shared Flickr account. Please note we may edit and/or resize images to have a width of 800px to improve the user experience.

Attaching images to a post

To attach an image directly into a post, when posting click on the "Attachments and other options" link below the text box.

Then, under "Attach", select "Browse" and select your image. You can add more than one image (and up to 12 in a single post) by clicking on the "More attachments" link.
