Here are two ways to add images to posts:
  1. You can attach an image(s) to your post, OR
  2. You can insert images directly into the body of the post.

Add an image (or other document) as an attachment to your post:

At the bottom of the post composition page, you will find the "Attachments" section. Here, you can add your image (or other document) attachments. To do so:
  1. Click the "Add File" button.
  2. Navigate to and choose the file that you want to upload from the Browse window that opens. (Allowed file extensions = jpg, jpeg, gif, png, txt, rtf, pdf, xls, doc, xlsx, docx).
  3. You can attach more than one file to your post. Repeat the above steps for each image / file you wish to attach.

Add an image or screenshot directly into the body of the post:

There are two ways to add an image directly into the body of your post:
  1. Place your cursor in the post where you want the image to be displayed and select "Insert" to the right of an attachment you’ve already uploaded.
  2. Using the “Image Link” option from the “Boardcode” menu above the edit box, or typing the BBCode directly into the post.

One very important things to remember when using these options is the image must already exist somewhere on the internet (it cannot only be on your computer). Uploading the image as an attachment to your post first suffices, or you can use an image already posted on another website.

Using the Boardcode Menu "Image Link" option to display an image posted somewhere else on the internet:
  1. Locate the image you want to display and copy its URL. Example: ttp://www.klasusers.com/images/logo.png
  2. Place your cursor where you want the image inserted in your post.
  3. Select the "Image Link" option from the "Boardcode" menu above where you are editing your post.
  4. Paste or type the image's URL into the URL field and select "Insert".

You can always PREVIEW the post to see if the image got posted properly. Alternatively, you can also EDIT it after it is posted, if the image did not get inserted correctly.

Using BBCode to display an image:

To display an image you must surround the URL pointing to the image by typing in the appropriate and opening and closing tags. (Note: the usual [] are replaced with {} in the below example.)

Example: {img}www.klasusers.com/images/logo.png{/img}
