Picture Posting Problem?

Post by Warf135 » Friday 3rd Dec 2010, 6:02

Hi Scott, sometimes when I upload an image file (jpg of gif) using "upload attachment", it displays in the post correctly and other times it just leaves it as a link that has to be clicked to display the image... What am I doing wrong? :? any ideas?

The forum handles images differently, if it is a very large image the forum will link to it instead of displaying it on the page.

There is also a button shown under the image name after you have "added" it to "place inline", if you want to have it display on the page then you need to click on that too, it will insert some code into the text to display it.

If I remember rightly there is also a setting in the admin side to select how images are handled, I may well have the set to default to linking.
