How to post photos in the forum

Not sure why the tags would be capitalised, I guess some quirk of whatever computer, operating system and web browser combination you're using perhaps? What are you using?

I used to have exactly the same problem with the code showing up around a link, rather than the picture appearing, but then it just started working for me one day. I assumed it was something updated with the forum program as nothing changed (that I know to) on my laptop. I don't know whether my problem was because of the code capitalisation, it never occurred to me to check. All I remember is that at the time, all the people for whom the picture posting worked seemed to be using Apple Mac's.

Not quite sure what you mean by 'direct link' I'm afraid. I find it's just as easy to type the tags and cut and paste the picture link, rather than use the button as it gives you more control as to where the picture goes (the button seems to insert the code at the end of the message rather than where the cursor is sitting). Same goes for formatting text in bold [ b], underlined [ u ] and italic [ i ].

By Direct Link I think he means this in Photobucket:



When you Hover over the photo you want to post you get four options, I use the Direct Link code. By clicking on the option it automatically copies the link ready to paste.

For example, the code for inserting the photo into the thread should look something like the following:



Note the tags (the bits in square brackets) need to be exactly as above for it to work - no capital letters, square brackets, no spaces and don't forget the trailing slash "/" (which means 'end') in the last tag.
