I'd like to insert an image into the G-force discussion forum from my PC, but I cannot do that.
I start the process by using [img] and after I copy and paste the image directory I add [/img]. But the image never shows up either with preview or after submission.
It shows that I need to use "http://" and I don't know how to do it since my image is in the "C:" drirectory.

Would you please show me the steps for inserting an image?

Hello sharok

Do you mean you want a image as an avatar?

Hi BTT,
No, I mean I cannot insert an image in the content of my message.
How can I do that?

Thanks

Hi Sharok

If you want to insert an image into your post first you need to upload it to a an image hosting site like imigur or other and then you copy the url and when you make your post if you look at the top row of post options you will see a little box that says IMG, you click it and then paste the url and then click img again to close the tags. See below. Always preview your post to make sure it looks the way you want it too.

[img]urlblah blah blah[/img]

I always used photobucket because it was free but now all my images in all the places I posted them including this forum are gone because PB now wants users to pay $400 a year for third party image hosting even though they have leveled your free page with ads.

Thank you very much for the directions. It worked. I used imgur for this purpose.
