Hey Dr. Bermant, can you explain to me how to properly post a picture? I tried going to click the image button and then copy and paste the image in between the image text. I also tried the help and search tools but have unsuccessfully not been able to post a picture.
This forum is set up to minimize the spam advertisers plaguing the internet yet reward those who contribute to the public education. Unless you have 5 posts, linking is not permitted unless it is to another post on this site. After this minimum number of posts, links are permitted to other web sites but they are disabled to not actually work unless you copy the code and paste it in a browser. After the next level there are real links but labeled by for the search engines as not yet reliable content to search engine optimize. Once you have achieved the highest level of participation here, the links are without limits.
For those wanting to post images I can manually enable their profiles to bypass that restriction as I just did for yours. Now you should be able to take a valid URL of an image that shows up in a browser such as:http://www.abodybeautiful.com/forum/images/california_gynecomastia_64_5.jpg
Select that entire line, then go to the far left button in the second row (rollover will say Insert Image), select that and you get:
an image right in line. A link to your post works, when you have the right to do so since it is on this site:http://www.abodybeautiful.com/forum/index.php/topic,367.msg445.html
I like making my links easier to read and use the following code:Experiences with Dr. Bermant
Other buttons and tools for posting help can be found here:http://wiki.simplemachines.org/smf/Basic_bulletin_board_codes
but that is getting complex now. The second button is supposed to be the URL button, but it does not work for me. Instead of trying to figure it out, I just manually paste my template form into my post and go from there.
There is another way to get images attached. At the bottom of the typing window for making a post is Attachments and other options. This will permit you to put a file up from your computer to the forum with restrictions. There is a max of 4 such attachments per post. The images show up small, but you can click on them to see them at a larger size.
Thank you again for taking the time to share your experiences.
Hope this helps,
