    Judging by that picture delusional too.

    So now for the proof of the pudding. a trial run and pasting a picture from my account at DeviantART into a thread here. Wish me luck, I'm using the process as described by our resident jester.

    Done the right click thing and copied the file info with image. UNCHECKED the remote button, think I forgot that aspect last time I tried, and here we go at previewing the posting...

    See post #20. Use a medium like photobucket, flickr, imageshack, etc. to store your pics ... :rolleyes:

    Cheers Ahjno - Other forums with a similar bushcraftUK format allow image uploads direct from PC so I had assumed it would be the same here. I have a flickr account, I'll use that.

    That came with the latest update, though we didn't activate it. All pics directly uploaded to the forum (thus using the option you mentioned), end up on the BCUK server. Something we don't want ATM.

    We've set it up so that FM's can load directly to the site as well as Mods, Admin etc. Resource wise images and other attachments soon add up to a large amount of space and then resource in displaying them, external hosting allows pages to load faster and saves our resources.
    Anyone that wants to be able to load directly to the site can support the site through a subscription.

    We will be reviewing how we do things (as we do now and then) so this might change but at the moment that's how things are :D

    I am going to try again, I have just put some photos onto my Picasa (google) account, so here goes:

    View attachment 6890

    Ok, that worked. I went to the picture in the album and right-clicked the photo and clicked on copy image address and then pasted it into the space on from url in the photo icon

    I have just encountered the problem where I have been loading up images with no problem and now can't.
    I think it might be to do with personal file size limits on the forum.
    Is that so?
    Can I delete old pictures to rectify it?

    Yes you can:

    Go to: Settings (top right) >> My Settings (on the left, scroll down) >> under Miscellaneous: click Attachments.

    You'll get a page with all the pics you've uploaded to the website.

    Tick the ones you want to delete.

    Click: Delete Selected (bottom right).

    Sorted

    I've been having nightmares, followed all the instructions on various threads and 'how-to's... no probs at all when I used IE rather than my usual browser, Opera :)

    I get stuck at the most basic stage- i.e. there are no buttons visible for me to select the picture one. In fact i have no edit buttons at all either in 'quick reply' or 'go advanced'. I'm using internet explorer. So the instructions here:

    http://www.bushcraftuk.com/forum/showthread.php?t=77526

    ...simply don't work for me.
