Inserting an image

  1. Oct 1, 2014 #1
    I am trying to insert an image to a thread I want to start in the General Physics area. This is what I have done:

    1. Click the "image" icon in the above toolbar
    2. I have the image uploaded on "photobucket" and went to the section "shared links" option of "IMG"
    3. I clicked into the space to choose that option
    4. right clicked and chose "paste" into the space labelled "image url"
    5. Clicked insert button

    http://[URL=http://s827.photobucket.com/user/gloo68/media/funneledpiston.png.html][ATTACH=full]199580[/ATTACH]

    I don't see it working. Can someone tell me what I am doing wrong? I think it has to do with what I included in the paste of the link

    Take out the URL bbcode and just place the URL between the IMG tags. It's important to remember to use a publicly accessible address that leads to the image only, not a page that contains the image

    Simply click the image button on the editor and input the public url of the image

    Greg, I don't know what i did to get it to work...lol. I can't even find myself in the dark. Basically i deleted everything except the tags and what is between it. I got the image inserted because i just pasted the entire thing i copied form photobucket and thought the xxx would make it not get picked up as a link. Guess that's who i got the image up. Maybe i will just go with that method.
