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.

Hi Help Elf,

With this release, we seem to have gone back to the 500px max width limit again. Can that be lifted? I was just getting to like posting wider images :)

So useful. I often want to use a photo but it's such a fag to go the old route that I don't always bother.

Thank you

Sitting here at Brisbane airport, 4 hours too early for my flight home to Melbourne, I am taking advantage of the free Wifi! 😆
So flicking through all my emails I have been missing, I see this.
How many kisses can I give you guys!
If anybody knows me from the forums, I just love, love, love adding images with my little postings.
Thank you all the little elves in here!

Oh, if only all wishes were so easy.

You can now upload up to 700x1500 px (that is, 700px wide and 1500px high).
