A question on using the PF forums

  1. Oct 22, 2007 #1
    I'm not sure if this is where I post this, I'm kind of new here. But how do you put images in your posts?
    I tried normal HTML but that didn't work at all.

    The tags are [ img ] [ /img ] without the spaces. Image tags only work in certain forums though, I think.

    You can also upload images from your computer as attachments.

    Go advanced --> additional options: manage attachments

    As far as I know, the image tags only work in the forums that are listed as "PF Lounge." For the more serious forums, use the method of including an attachment that Gokul mentioned. We support a wide variety of attachment formats that should suit the needs of anyone posting in the main forums. Note that attachments need to be approved by a mentor before they will appear to others, so be patient for us to get to it if you don't see it show up right away.

    Image tags also work in the homework forums.

    For a list of all the "vB codes" (the HTML-like tags that you can use for links, images, formatting, etc.), see

    https://www.physicsforums.com/misc.php?do=bbcode

    There's a link to this at the bottom left corner of the page when you compose or edit a posting.
