How do I insert an image in a post?



You can reply to a post or start a new one, and in doing so you will be presented with a WYSIWYG (what you see it what you get) editor. This editor allows you to insert images and much more.


Follow these steps to insert an image:


  1. In the editor of a new post, click on the camera icon that says "Photos" above the box. Clicking the image below will enlarge it giving you a better view. Post Editor.JPG
  2. A new screen will appear allowing you to select an image to insert. Click the "Choose Files" button to select the image(s), or drag and drop the images in the designated photo area. Clicking the photo below will enlarge it giving you a better view.

As you successfully pull in your image(s), you will be given additional options in the right rail for each image. These options include formatting, sizing and positioning with the post. See below photo. Clicking the photo below will enlarge it giving you a better view.

  1. When you’re done, click the "Post" button on the bottom right to publish your post.


Congratulations! You’ve just inserted an image and published your post.


That is nice instructions on how to post. I do wonder though, why is it one can not delete any previous posts?


Edit note:  Why are pictures/images that are sent in private messages showing up in the picture feed on the main community board?

I am considering leaving this website and the community forum and would like to know how I might delete my posts/pictures before doing such?
