Posting Images Within A Thread

Hi everyone,

Here's a quick tutorial about posting an image in a post (i.e. within a thread).

There are two ways to do this:

Option 1 - Posting an image via a web link

This option works ONLY if the image you want to post is hosted somewhere on the internet (can even be from the Catforum gallery) as you will need to provide the web address to the image (URL).


1. Click on the "insert image" icon in the text box area where you are posting.

2. A pop up box should appear to prompt you to input the URL (web link) of the image. Paste the link there and click "ok".

Here is an example of this in action:



I'm also insert a screenshot of the icon you need to click in case you don't know which one it is.

Option 2 - Using the "Manage Attachment" feature to upload an image located directly from your computer

Below the text box where you input your post, you should see an area with a button called "Manage Attachments".

You should notice the difference between using the two methods:

Option 1 does NOT automatically resize the image into a thumbnail. Option 2 does.
