Forgive my ignorance but how do I insert a photo into a post or reply to a post? I did look and can't seem to find answer.

You upload your picture to a hosting site (like Photobucket) and then paste the link into your post.

Thanks Zig. I use Dropbox, guessing that will do. Now get back to work on movie. There will be a big box of ZOIDBERG snacks in it if you finish this year.

it has to be a site like photobucket or imgur that host only pictures. the dropbox link will only take you to dropbox to see the pic and you want it to show on the forum.

Thanks fazz68...
I was wondering what I did wrong. I read Zig to generally. So this photobucket is how we display photos in our forum messages.

Personally I use imgur because that's where i was pointed when I asked.
You need to click "copy image URL" after right clicking the image. Then you click the little image thingyat the top of the forum text box and paste the url in the window that comes up.
As for videos, just upload to YouTube, put the link in your post and the forum will automatically embed it.
