Hey guys this may sound like a stupid question but how do you properly insert images? when I click on the insert image picture in the editing window the site directs me to a http: window, so when I insert the link the post includes the full URL and no picture, help!

right click the picture. click copy picture location.

paste it into the url box

thats for the picture to be linked to the forum from another online source.

if you trying to upload pictures from your harddrive, you have to find a site that will host your pictures. the forum picture UI doesnt upload pictures, but simply links them

here http://imageshack.us/ is a image hosting site for example.

once you upload pictures from your desktop to imageshack, you should be able to get a URL for the pic.

You can also add them from your desktop as an attachment if you wish.

I didn’t know that you can do that. Oh thanks for that juicy little tip, Eragon.  :o

Imgur works a little better usually.

You are fooling yourself, user. Nothing here is what it seems. ANet is not the plucky hero, Guru is not an evil empire, and this is not the grand arena.
