    Is there a "pic post for dummies" somewhere

    I have been searching past posts and although many talk about use of a 2nd or 3rd party to post pic's, I have no idea what needs to be done.

    I have a seat for sale in the classifieds and would like to put up pictures but have no idea what "PB" or "img" is.
    I've spent most my money on Motorcycles and Women, the rest I just wasted.

    When you make a post, there is a [PICTURE] ICON on the toolbar. Click it, select "INSERT FROM URL", enter the URL and uncheck "Retrieve remote file and reference locally". This will insert the pict from the hosting site you entered.

    Are you using the Imgur site?
    If so when you look at the individual picture put your over the top left corner of the pic and click on the arrow.
    Then left click on "Get share links"
    Then click on the "Copy'' on the right side of "BBC code forums"
    make sure you have the site where you want to put it open at the same time
    Then right click on the post where you want it and select "paste"

    Just watch this video on you tube it will help

    Check your PM's. I sent you a small treatise on posting photos from IMGUR. I think you've been COPYING the wrong box to the right of the photo. You need to copy the BBCode box by hitting the COPY box with a left click of your , then PASTE it here on the site in the SUBMIT REPLY box, then hit SUBMIT REPLY and the image should appear. You've been copying the DIRECT LINK box, which makes us hit that jgp code to then see it in IMGUR. Try the BBCode box, copy and paste it here. BTW, nice Corbin.
