Inserting Image into posts

Post by plantphoto » Fri Nov 28, 2008 11:24 pm

Hi,
I have read documents but still not sure how I can allow people to insert an image into their posts.
I see the img tag but can't see or get this to work.
My forum runs phpBB 2.0.22.
Can anyone explain please (in simple terms would be great!)

Check to make sure that you have "bbcode" enabled in both the forum configuration AND your personal profile, otherwise, it won't display.

"did not work" is an incredibly unhelpful response. What actually happened?
Do you mean you just see the bbcode tags still, or it tries to show the image, but just displays a red box instead?
Have you actually uploaded the image to somewhere that it can be accessed via a URL?
Note that plain phpBB2 does NOT have a facility to upload images into messages (phpBB3 does). The img tag can only be used to refer to an image that is already on a website somewhere. There are many free image hosting site, like photobucket.com
