How to add images to forum pages using bbcodes.

The image bbcode allows a user to display images stored in other web locations. Some of these image storage locations include:

https://www.flickr.com/
http://www.shutterfly.com/
http://www.smugmug.com/
https://imageshack.com/
http://www.photobucket.com

After images have been uploaded to a site like one of the sites listed above, it is easy to link to the image. This demonstration will use the site Photobucket.

Step 1: Upload the image(s) to the image storage location.
Step 2: At the Photobucket site, select the image to view.
Step 3: On the left side of the site under the area called “SHARE LINKS”, click in the text area next to “IMG”. When you click, the text will change temporarily to “copied”.

Step 4: Go back to the message that is being drafted in the forum and paste the information that was copied at Photobucket.

This will insert the image with a hyperlink back to the image at Photobucket. If you want to display the image without the link, you will need to remove the areas in bold red.
