    If you know the URL of the image and don't have it on your computer, click the "Image" button on the toolbar (in between "Smilies" and "Media") and enter the URL. The image will appear in your post.

    If you have an image on your computer that you'd like to put in your post, click the "Upload a File" button below the editor (between "Preview..." and "More Options..." This will allow you to upload the image. Once it is uploaded, select "Full Size" to show the full-sized image within your post or "Thumbnail" to show a clickable thumbnail within your post.

    Jordan, occasionally when someone posts a picture, I'll just see the little blue square and no image. This happened earlier today and I went to tell the person I couldn't see their picture. I quoted them. As soon as I did that, the picture showed up in the quote and I could see it, but I still couldn't see anything other than the blue square box in the original post.

    I come back later and now I see both images.

    My computer or something that needs tweaked in Xenforo?

    Cool Thanks! I have wanting to post a photo that wasn't on the internet! However, when I try it says the photo is too large. Is there a certain size requirement?

    If you post a custom avatar photo, that is your photo, correct? Meaning, it does remain the user's photo (as in anyone who clicks a shutter) and will not be altered in another application, correct?

    I'm not sure I understand what you're asking, but anyone on the internet can see the images you post to this forum. We don't control what members use as their avatars (within reason), and we don't claim rights to the images members use.

    I don't know if anyone else is experiencing problems, but I am suddenly no longer able to "Upload" images of any size from my PC?
    I get the message "the following error occurred", but no code of any sort.
    Image posting using URL codes is still working OK for now.
    Any idea why?

    This happens to me, too. I drag/dropped an image from online and was able to upload it. I so far can't upload images of my own from my computer desktop though. The image I dragged/dropped was an .npg file. I dunno what if any difference that makes. Most of the ones I want to upload from my desktop are .jpg. I still need to do some more experimentation, to change sizes of images, for instance.

    There were some changes made a couple of days ago, probably something to do with that. Jordan will be on it soon enough, I'm sure.

    I'm glad that it's not just me with the problem, and I haven't gotta go looking for the cause on my PC!
    Good luck, Jordan.

    Mine says " The following error occurred:
    A server error occurred. Please try again later.

    So happy it isn't just me. It has been going on for most of yesterday and today. Couldn't post welcome pictures or silly captioned animals. Some of the emoticons won't work either. But I am on a Samsung Galaxy Tablet.
