Help Elf here. Until today, if you wanted to add a photo or image to your forum post, you had to upload the photo to your site, then add its URL to the img bbcode.
Now you can simply upload the image. Scroll down below the Preview and Submit buttons and you'll see a new tab next to Options...
Click on the button to select your image, then click on Add the file to upload it. Once it's uploaded, you'll see an option to Place inline. Click on that. Some code will be added wherever your cursor is. The code will look like this (with the spaces removed from the tag, which I had to add to show you the code)...
[ attachment=0 ]upload-attachment.png[ /attachment ]
Why would you want to add a photo or screenshot? A screenshot will allow other SBIers to help you faster when there's something odd happening to your site. Or you may want advice about an image you want to use on your site (especially if you want to add text to it).
If you can think of any other reasons for uploading images directly to the forums, please reply with your suggestion, right here.
