Guide How to upload and share images manually

Hello everyone,

In case the built-in image uploading feature is not working, you can share images on the forum via image sharing websites. There are several sites where you can upload images and share them on the forum. However, we prefer Imgur or ImgBB.

Here's how to upload and share images on the forum using Imgur

Go to imgur.com/upload (on mobile select the desktop view from settings or use the Imgur app)

Sometimes ImgBB also includes ads URL, so make sure to remove any unnecessary URL before posting the image on the forum.

Share images from an URL by hotlinking

You can also share images from an URL. Click on the Insert image icon on the editor, and then select By URL

Alternatively, you can also manually add [IMG] tags at the beginning and at end of the URL to embed image from URL.

Example:
Code:
[IMG]https://cdn.pixabay.com/photo/2017/08/30/01/05/milky-way-2695569_1280.jpg[/IMG]
