I was looking at possibly starting a thread to sell my VPI Aries Scout turntable and was wondering why it states in the posting permissions at the bottom of the screen that I may ''not'' post attachments.Do I need more forum posts for this or is there settings?.I had a look at the rules but could not find anything regarding this....thanks

Go to the post you are writing and click on the picture icon on the forum toolbar

This is where I am getting stuck..there is no forum toolbar to locate the picture icon...or have I knobbed and missed it .

Photobucket provides link codes for posting media in almost every situation! Here is an overview of the linking options we offer:



In order to copy a link, when viewing your album or media detail page, simply click the desired link located in the sidebar to the right of the page. This will automatically copy the entire link! Paste it into your browser by pressing 'ctrl' + 'V' for PC users, 'cmd' + 'V' for Mac users.

Email & IM: Use this link to share your content via email or IM. This link will send you directly to the album or photo you're currently viewing.

Slideshow: This link is only available in the album view. This link provides you with a slideshow of all the photos within the album you're currently viewing.

Direct link: This is the actual web location where your image is stored. Use this link for sites that ask you to insert an image from a web URL. You can also use this to create linked text.

*** Note! If a forum or blog asks you to use a direct link to embed your photo, the photo may or may not display at full size, depending on the forum and its posting guidelines. Some forums resize images automatically! ***

HTML code: Great for embedding a photo or video on websites like Wordpress, Hi5, Blogger, eBay and more! Your media will display at full size on the page you create.

HTML thumb: Use this to embed a thumbnail version of your photo (160 x 120 pixels) instead of at full size.

IMG code: Use this to embed your photo or video on bulletin boards and forums that do not allow you to input HTML coding. Your media will display at full size on the page you create.

IMG thumb: Just like the IMG code, except a thumbnail version of your photo (160 x 120 pixels) will appear on the page.

The link codes appear on the right side of your screen. Left-click on a code to copy it, then paste it into your forum or website source code.

Go to Settings>general Settings>Miscellaneous Options

Tick the box for 'Enhanced Interface - Full WYSIWYG Editing' and 'Enhanced Attachment Uploading on'

You should then be able to post attachments.

The server space allocated is very limited and costs the forum money so I doubt you will get more than one photo.

You are far better off using the IMG tags in photobucket as detailed above.
