[How To] Insert an Image into a Post

Recommended Posts

Here is how to insert an image/photo into a post.

The image must be hosted elsewhere on another site or in your personal picture galleries here at QUADCRAZY.

Locate the image (online) that you would like to insert into your post. Right Click on that image and copy the URL (http://............) of the picture.

Go to the post and when writing a new post or replying, find the Image Icon insertimage.gif and click it. It will ask you for that URL. Insert it and hit OK.

That's it!

but it can't be in my computers then, but at a third site?????? huh? WHY? this is the first site where I've run into THIS stuff. this is where I come off the rails

I'm running three computers, does that count?

If I understand this right, I have to upload to quadcrazy photo/video bank first. THEN I find it again after I figure out where I want to post it in a thread? Long way 'round the barn, isn't it? Honestly, most sites are far more user friendly than this. try them.

You guys are making great strides! I was completely baffled when I joined here. The more you can make it 'upload off my PC' the more participation you will have. If it's easy to do then it's fun. If I need a degree or is a pain or makes no sense = less participation. This is a hurdle for me, still. Keep up the good work!!!

Off your PC you will have to use "Manage Attachments" (Attach Files). This is the way ALL forums work. I have yet to see one that gives you a different option off your pc. Some don't even have an upload photo feature. Here you have your own gallery to upload to. The above method is using a url for the photo from any site, including your photo gallery here at QUADCRAZY.

Hey Raptor.....

Dont you use a site like Photobucket for hosting pictures????? That is what I use....Its easy and it resizes them automatically....And its FREE Brotha!!

Or,,,,,GOOGLE IMAGAGES.....That is where I "URL" Most of the Stupid Pictures I post here...:yes:

With Photobucket they give you the HTML Links to just paste it in your post without using the insertimage.gif Button....See there....I just URL'ed that....LMAO!!! and it didnt take but 5 seconds....But with Google Images or pulling a pic from any other site you do....

Hope that helped....I know it was just a ramble.....I have no coffee in me yet....:wink:

We just added an easy way to insert any image in the GALLERY section into any forum that supports BB code (like here) and any website.

hotlink.jpg

The two forum options are for the regular image and thumbnail. Just copy and paste the code into your post, that's it!

With our new site, to insert an image you would just paste the image (or video) url directly into the post to embed it or use Insert other media to the lower right of the post editor. :D 

There is a also a feature where if you copy the url from topic, post, photo (from the picture gallery) it will automatically embed it as well.

Example below. All I did was enter the url to the content.

      I have a 2018 Sportsman 450 HO.  I use it primarily for hunting and riding in the mountains of WV.  I am really interested in the Hatfield and McCoy trail system in WV.  Does anyone have a recommendation for a beginner to intermediate trail to explore?
