Is there someone to tell me how to post pictures? When Iinserting the picture, I was told to input the URL, but my picture is in my computer. If it can not straightly to insert the photo from my computer, I think it is rather inconvenience.

Hi @Home Liu

There are 3 ways to add pictures to this site .
  • You have found 1 option which is to link from another site.
  • The second option is to use the media gallery on this site, but we don't really use that much yet .
  • The final option is the easiest . Just use the "Upload a File" button next to "Post Reply" and "More Options..."

Once you have uploaded your picture, you need to tell the system what to do with it. There are 3 options.
  • The first is to add it as a file to the post. People have to click on it to see it. If you do nothing, this is what will happen by default and it will show like the second reply below (here).
  • The 2nd and 3rd options relate to pictures uploaded as a file. The 3rd being to show the full image and the 4th to show it as a thumbnail.
