What happened to actually being able to post pics in our post. Do I need to upload to this site to post?

There are two different ways to post pictures in a post. If it's hosted somewhere else you can press the button and post the link to the image itself (not the page where the image is) and it will appear.

You can also attach photos to a post. To do this press the button and upload files one by one. Then press the little down arrow next to the button to place the image where you want it.

Are you having trouble doing this?

NO I can do that but I think a link takes the PUNCH out of a post compared to the actual picture.

Is a link what you wanted to do, or post the image like this?:

If your using a link that already has those tags though you don't need to use that button. Maybe that's the problem?

That's what I'm thinking... doing so results in double [img]s and [/img]s.

I know this is sound stupid but try going to our homepage www.electriciantalk.com and pressing CTRL+F5. that will clear out your browser cache for this site. Sometimes crazy issues like this can be fixed that way. Maybe a 50/50 chance of it working but it's easy.
