how to add pictures to the forum
« on: January 04, 2018, 09:43:31 AM »

Can someone help me how to add full size pictures to the forum. I can add thumbnails via the web and full-size via Talptalk. I would like to add them via my dropbox link?

Unless I misunderstand, you should be able to simply add the URL to your post (making sure the DB folder is publicly accessible)

I suspect you may not be using the URL insertion correctly

- If you are trying to insert an image into your post, the Insert Image icon below the B in the Post window allows you to insert the URL of a web-based image into the text of your post
