On the forum board front page, you should see a ‘new topic’ button at the top left of the page (you need to be logged on first). Click on the button, give your post a title and add the content of your post in the test box.

We've taken the decision to allow users to upload images to the site to save you having to host them externally

In order to do this, when you make a post or a new topic, youll now see Attachments at the bottom as shown here

You can either drag and drop them into the message window or click Add files which will upload them

To add them to your post, youll need to click in the message window where you want the image, and then click Place Inline, and itll end up like this

Any questions please let me know

Cheers
Hi, I have all my pictures in an external host because of I am in others forums. I am trying to edit my car post, but when I try to add more pictures to the post, it always appears this message:

Forbidden. Message seems to be spam.

What can I do? Thanks

Try strip it down. Post only the URL with the jpg on the end inside an [ img ] set of brackets. Ie. [ img ] url.jpg /[ img ]

I’ve put extra spaces in to be able to show you the formatting

I’m having trouble uploading pictures it keeps saying ‘board limit reached ‘

Is it because the file is too big?

I think it’s been like that for a couple of weeks now. I’ve been using the previous method of uploading pictures by using a photo hosting site such as https://postimages.org/. On the Post Images front screen, click on the ‘choose images’ box and select the picture(s) you want to upload from your chosen source. Once picture has loaded to the photo hosting site, copy the ‘hotlink for forums’ and paste the link into the body of your post. It’s simple and it works 🙂👍.
