Posting pictures
#1
I've been having an issue since the conversion to the new software.  When I try to post a picture using the old code [img] followed by the location of the image and then the [/img] it doesn't work.  The software drops the directory location and converts the [img] to [Image: followed by the file name of the image.  Any thoughts or suggestions?

Tom have you tried using the link to add attachment that is at the bottom of every post. It is very simple but it loads directly from your computer.
It is really simple to do

That's the easiest way to upload images. I've tried the "paste" routine and it takes more effort to correct the format than it does to just go like Charlie shows. If you want to link a photo, use the, " insert a link" icon.

I can get Charlie's method to work if I use Edge or IE.  It won't work in Firefox.  The image shows up in Edge and IE but does not show up in FF.  Part of the problem is that FF won't/can't recognize an internet drive.  I store my posted pictures on storage provided by my ISP because I sometimes post to multiple sites.  When using the provide upload system on this site the code used to link the picture is exactly the same as I was using to post the picture.

Maybe using the "link" icon would work better for you. I use FF, but all my photos are on my computer, so the attachment method works just fine.
