    I'd like to include pictures in future posts but am unsure how to do it. If I click on the little "image" icon in the tool bar, I get a pop-up that prompts me to enter a URL for the image I want to post. Is there a way to post a picture directly from my hard drive into the post itself.

    Sorry if this has a pretty obvious solution; I did a search on the forum for this info, but couldn't find any suitable instructions.

    Any help is appreciated.

    P.S. Same question goes for videos as well.

    Two ways ... highlighted here:
    [​IMG]
    Click on the bottom one and find the file on your computer .. or .. click on the top one and paste in a link to your image where it is hosted.

    For videos click on the film icon next to the top one I highlighted.

    Hey! That works. Thanks. I just created a "Test Post," inserted a picture using the Upload a File button and inserted it successfully. I then deleted the post (I hope.)

    One more question: are there limits to file size, video size, etc.?

    I tried this but it didn't accept my file extension. I think it was PNG.

    PNG file worked fine for me. Be sure to use the "Upload File" option.
