    It would be very useful to be able to do so.

    like with this picture that I wanted to attach as an answer to a problem, it is rather difficult to describe such an answer in words...

    Attached Files:

    • star.jpg
      File size:
      10.6 KB

    I find it really annoying that we are not able to post attachments in the Brain Teaser forum. Today I wanted to use the [ img ] ... [ / img ] method to post an image and found out that that also does not work there.

    Is there a reason why this is not allowed in the Brain Teasers forum?

    From what i know of,"" tags are allowed only in the General Discussion subforum,as for attachments,lemme take a look.

    Forum policies...

    If you have a picture, you could upload it to some image hosting site like Image Shack, and throw in the link.

    Any plans to allow image tags in the brain teaser forum?

    Just attach the image. We don't allow inline images.

    Maybe then and in most of the forums - but.
    When you get a chance could you check the Thumbnail function in the brain teaser forum.
    The attachments load OK, but users only see the file name not the thumbnail and clicking on it brings up an error (permissions). This only while logged in.

    However logging out and returning to the post - the thumnails then show and clicking it brings up the full image as it should and as it does in other PF forums while still logged in.

    I'm guessing this is not how you intend for this to work in brain teasers.
