Am I doing something wrong? I click the insert photo button and all that happens is I get "img - img". Ive tried clicking the attachments tab but when I preview the post there is nothing showing for photos.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
When you use the "img" tags, you have to reference a location, either on the local site or an external site, like Photo bucket, Imgur, Pinterest, etc.
I use Imgur. When I add a pic inline in a post (not as an attachment), I simply copy & paste the "BBCode" link from imgur, which automatically adds the "img" tags. Before I do that, I go into EDIT mode in Imgur and check the pixel size/dimensions. If it's bigger than I want, usually over 800 pixels on one side, I'll use that GUI to resize it so it's not monstrously huge.
I rarely use the attachment feature of the forum, mainly so readers don't have to click a thumbnail to see the pic.
Here's what I copy from imgur:
