So, how do you post a link within a post? :scratch:

How do you get an "Avatar" :?
Ye great horlix just copy and paste the link into the post and the system will recognise it as a link, or when you have it pasted in highlight the entire link and click the URL button above.

Avatar has to be uploaded through your user control panel, there are certai size limits so you may have to resize the photo

When I try to insert an image in a reply it ain't working! I'm ass-u-ming that an image is a .jpg? Could you inform this great pillock how it's done without being too abusive?

You either have to upload the image as an attachment or if it is on a website copy the image location then paste into the post, then highlight the link in the post and click on the IMG button at the top of your post

there's one born every minute...

use the img button if it an image on the internet.
Image

use the upload attachedment (red tab to the lower left of save draft - below) if it's saved on your own computer.
once its uploaded click on place inline and then copy/paste to wherever in your useless body of text you want to place it.

That img /img didn't come out right - tried to link to a web page that doesn't exist.

Some browsers, if u right click on an image will let I copy image location or image URL.

Click the img tab above and between the square brackets paste what uv copied

That's ridiculous. Of all the images you could have put there.

A bloody disgrace.

Ever heard of Jessica Enniskillen, eh?

I think its not just my idiocy; could be the firewall at work. If you'll bear with me, I'll continue this conversation on my private PC and see if these tips and tricks work there. Thanks for your replies.
