You need to put the URL (web address) of the image between image tags.

I'm not sure how else to explain it.

HTML Code:
[img] your images web address here  [/img]

What do you do if you want to post an image that is not from the internet, but saved in My Documents?

The next sentence is true. This sentence is a lie.

You need to host to an Image hoting site, such as Tinypic (which is more reliable than Imageshack).

I'm confused with this now - not only are my attachments failing to show up, but the interwebs-uploaded ones are dying too. Post 66, here. It's just not showing up whenever I look at it.

Now, am I doing something wrong, or is it just the internet being an ass? What uploaders do you all use, because Vaz has me thinking Imageshack is bad (and Tinypic wouldn't work for me)?

Dear me, that was ages ago. Tbh, Imageshack's improved a fair bit. The only one I don't recommend now is Photobucket, but that's because of their bandwidth being so low so they ask you to pay for more, or did last time I used them.

5 years is a lot of time to improve things ;).

You can thank our russian hackers for a lot of the missing attachments and avatars. Could be due to the dataloss from that.

The bit I'm confused with is how I uploaded them only a few days ago - then re-uploaded them earlier today. Unless the hacker's still got a few bits in the system, I'm really confused as to how they're not working.
