    How can I post a photo without getting code that has to be clicked on? I tried inserting an image but that does not work. It's easier to post a video here than a picture.

    The icon with the mountain and the sun. Click on that and paste the URL into that pop up box.

    I totally understand what you are looking for iso - which is the ability to simply past an image's location into a post and have the site automatically know it's an image and display it as one, but as of right now only the videos have that ability.

    You know what, I didn't even realize videos did it automatically. That's cool.

    Yeah, just simply post the address of of the page the video is on and the site will automatically embed the video - it works for a ton of different sites.

    Madman is the technical guru around here, Doogie...and he's not on-site at the moment.

    We didn't have the capacity on our site to directly post photos previously, but we might have it now...

    Madman would know.

    After you browse and select the photo you want to attach, you need to click the "Add Attachment" button to finalize the upload. (I know, it's kinda goofy)

    See my attachment for the button.

    I have had the same problem. I can't add a photo so I just gave up.
