Since the forum upgrade it had not been possible to use the add attachment function to add an image to a post directly from your own computer. This means that photos have to be hosted externally on a site like Photobucket or Flickr and then linked to on the forum. 
This is a quick screen capture guide showing how to add an image to your posts. Please use this function rather than a URL linking to the image making it necessary for people to browse away from FPN to see an image of your sale item. It's far easier for everyone if they can see an image in your sale post.

For Sale posts made without a photo or only providing a link to a photograph may be removed from the forum without warning.

This screen shot shows you where to find the add image tool.

That produces a little drop down box into which you add the link to your .jpg image.

Once you click on the 'insert image' button the image will appear within the posting box as shown.

If you have a picture in photobucket, upload the picture, then look for a 'Share this Image' table that looks like the one below:

Posted Image
Click on the 'IMG Code' text which highlights the text in the box to the right of it. Hovver the mouse over the highlighted text, right click, select 'Copy'. This copies the image address onto your computer's clipboard. Then paste the address into the FPN editor & hey presto you've got a picture in your post.

Regards,

Richard.

To add a photo stored on Flickr, do the following:
  • Add photo
  • Click on the 'Share this' tab.
  • Click on menu option 'Grab HTML/BBCode'
  • Click on the 'BB Code' Radio Button'
  • In the box titled 'Copy & Paste the code below', do just that.
  • Paste the copied text into the sale
Flickr adds lots of extraneous text & links, and if you only want the photo, only copy and paste the text starting with [img ] and finishing with [/img ]

Regards,

Richard.
