If you mean attaching an image, then the answer is no. Images take up hard disk space which is expensive. The forum is free and don't have money to buy terabytes of hard disk space to host images.

Only way of having your pic displayed is by pasting a link to a server that already hosts the image. I use postimages.org

You simply drag and drop the image on their website and they give you an URL that you past in your thread. It is as easy as it gets.

Thanks for clearing that up, makes sense now  :thumbs:

Not like so:

https://i.postimg.cc/1R87BXfN/IMG_20180722_175928.jpg

You must click on the little mona liza emoji. That will insert 2 sets of square brackets. You must then paste your URL right in the middle of these 2 inner brackets.

This will then happen.


If you don't understand, reply to this message by choosing quote. Look at the string for this image in my message that you have quoted. You will then see what it must look like.

In postimages.org there is an option next to your uploaded image that says "hotlink for forum". If you copy this URL it already insert the necessary HTML coding into the URL string.

Same with Imgur.  You can copy the URL or the URL already enclosed in the BBCode img tags.  You might find it easier to just type the tags instead of scrolling up and moving the mouse to the little "Mona Lisa" button.  Just img in square brackets, then the URL, then /img in square brackets at the end.
