How to have a picture in threads

The following will explain how to post a picture in a thread.

#1 the picture you want to have in the thread MUST already on the internet. Webshots, or another image hosting website. Beware that some free picture hosting sites do not allow you to link images. there are free hosts that will allow linking, So search for the best ones.

when you make a post and want to have a picture in your thread, click the image button. If you do not see the image button, go to usercp > edit options > Message Editor Interface. Set it to "standard editor - extra formatting controls"

alternately use the image tags
with the URL (address) in between the tags. this is a tag "
A URL or Address is this " http://www.texas4x4.org/gallery/albums/BMRA_Mar_2003/01010011_G_001.sized.jpg "

so when you want to post a pic you will do this

there are no spaces allowed, I spaced the with the url so you can see what needs to be done.

URL stands for Uniform Resource Locater, which is how web pages and images are found and seen on the internet, it is also called a address. for instance, if someone asks what's the addy of that website, you can tell them the URL is [url="http://www/"]http://www[/url]...... or you can say the address is [url="http://www/"]http://www[/url].....

the same rule applys for posting a link to another site or post... except the tags are different. to post a link, you use the [url="http://tag,%20along%20with%20the%20closing/"]tag, along with the closing [/url]tag.
