If you're in Chrome, you are using Basic Editor. [In reply to] Can't Post

Hence my first question about Advanced vs Basic. The directions are different.

To upload an image in Basic here's what you do.

Find the Attachment commands under the lower, left corner of your compose window. Click: Browse
Using the popup File Upload window, find the image on your harddrive. Click: Open

Tick the Inline option.
Click: Upload attachment

The steps, up to this point, will happen the same way as in Advanced Editor and you can use the walkthrough I provide on this page:

When the image is uploaded and you can see the name in the list (see example at link above), your next step in Basic Editor is now different than in Advanced Editor.

You have to write the code. Code for this forum can be written in html code or Markup code. I find markup to be easier to type and, in most cases, easier to remember. The markup code for embedding an image you have uploaded to TORn as an attachment is:

{inline nameofimage.jpg}


But you have to replace the fancy brackets with square brackets and replace "nameofimage" with the actual name of your image.

So for this image, the code would look like this



or... you can do as you did, switch to Firefox or Internet Explorer. Chrome has an extension that allows you to do that fairly easily. But most of the time, I just write the code unless I have a complicated post that needs a lot of formatting.

If you need help writing Markup Code, you click the link above your compose window that says, "Get Markup Help"

And, as a final 'caution' against potential problems... just for the record. If you are writing markup code, you have to have the setting next to "Get Markup Help" set to either "Markup" or "Markup or HTML". Of course, if you are using HTML code, it must read "HTML" or "Markup or HTML".
