It may be that your whole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.

i am just using tapatalk to post photos as it lets you select from your photo library and posts them direct. But I then going back to the normal browser to read the forum as I don't like teh way tapatalk feeds the information and also the fact it has adverts in there ...

The forum nativly has the ability for users to upload images into their posts without any third party websites.

Below the preview and submit buttons at the end of your message, there are a couple of tabs available. One of them is "Attachments".
Attach_1.JPG

Select "Attachments"
Attach_2.JPG

Select "Add Files" and a pop-up window will appear to allow you to browse your computer for the photo's you want to attach.
Attach_3.JPG

Once they are uploaded then scroll up to your message and place the curser to where you want the image inserted in your text then scroll back down and click on "place inline". The code will then be imbeded in your post to display the image.

It's always been there but do we want to go filling up our server space full of images. Just keep that in mind the next time one wants to attach an image to a post. Make sure it's of some real value rather than some joke or something. :wink:

So why is it that I can post pics up no problem with photobucket, I've used it for years and still use it, and before anyone asks, no I don't pay for it.
Can someone please explain why I can and other people on here can't :confused

that's strange .... perhaps you have been a member for so long you get grandfathered rights?

can you do a test and see if it is still working?

Hey you're right Al, photobbucket isn't working for me now either.
Had to do this one as an attachment, I'll have to find another way of doing it in future, don't want to clutter the forum up.
