Please help a retard do something easy...................

How do i post a picture?
I can do it as a direct link from a web page but not any other way.
There is a section in my profile about attachments and there are a couple of attachments there but it says that bit is not working at the moment. Is that how i would do it when its working again? Or am i missing the obvious :oops:

You're not a retard. I'm a cheapskate.

Other forums let you post direct without linking because they can afford the server space for image hosting being generally owned by huge corporate publishing houses. Others fund it by charging for membership/sponsorship/advertising/classifieds etc. We don't do any of that.

So I'm afraid you need to use one of the many free image hosting sites available on the world wide web and link to your pics from there. We used to have a forum Photobucket account but it's almost full now. I will be setting up a new MFUK one as soon as I can be arsed to do it. In the meantime:


Re your profile, that function's disabled. It's technical. :D

Thanks :mrgreen:

I recall using photobucket ages ago but it was the attachment bit in the profile which was confusing me.

What idiot decided that the instructions to post pictures/photos would be in the photos section! I mean really! What kind of forum are you running here :mrgreen:

I looked in all the other areas apart from in photos :oops: and i mean everywhere :oops:
