    i've been trying to post pics,either in a new thread or in a reply. when i click the button "insert image" it asks me for a url of the image. should this take me to a browse my pc to upload a photo? or do i need to upload them to a 3rd party server then use that as the link? no i'm not useing the "insert email link" thanks

    the easiest way is to click on "manage attachments" below the box where you reply...once there, you can browse your desktop for the image you want to upload

    oh, ok...well you can't upload the same pic twice. what you can try is rename the file on your desktop and then try uploading it that way

    no,.. the file names is registered to the forum software and goes in the same directory.. so you can only upload the image one time. just rename the file is the easiest way around it
