OK, I'm new to this stuff. How do I put a picture (say a tank or something) in one of my posts? I tried to copy a picture from my archives and paste it in the post but it wouldn't work. The explanation of UBB Codes leaves me puzzled, can you only paste from a web site? Thanks to anyone who can teach this old guy some of this new fangled stuff.

Unfortunately, it's not as simple as it may appear. You can't paste a picture into a post, but you can use "UBB" codes to provide a link to one. In this case, the picture itself must already exist on the web somewhere. (I believe yahoo and some other sites will allow you to put up ad hoc photo albums.)

At any rate, once you have the picture up on the web, you can use the "IMAGE" button under "Instant UBB Code" to enter a link to the picture. I've done it below using http://cdnarmy.ca/img/menu_root.gif as the link.

Hope that helps.

Cheers

P.S. I can't make any promises, but I am attempting to figure out how to allow people to upload their own photos to this site.

Thanks Mike, appreciate the help. Now I'll have to give it a try soon.
