This is my good deed for the day

There has been an influx of new users on the Be-Mag message board, and a common issue I see them have is that they cannot figure out how to post images or videos.


Today you will learn how to embed an image and/or embed a video to your post using a computer. We'll do images first, then video.


IMAGES

If the image is already hosted online

  1. Right-click the image, select Copy Image URL
  2. In your post, type [img]
  3. Paste the image URL
  4. Type [/img]
  5. Hit return, and paste the URL again so people who have images, avatars and signatures blocked can click the link


You will see something like this:




And when you click Submit Reply/Submit New Thread, it will look like this:

If the image is created by YOU and is NOT already hosted online

  1. Use a free hosting site like Imgur to upload your image(s)
  2. Once uploaded, you will be provided with several links you can copy. You want ones listed under BBCode (message boards & forums) They have the [img][/img] built into the link.
  3. Paste the copied link once
  4. Hit return, and paste the copied link again, but delete the [img][/img] so people who have images, avatars and signatures blocked can click the link
