How do i insert an image???

I have tried to insert an image with no success. Despite using the following steps as suggested by the forum founder all I get appearing after posting is a link to my image rather than the actual image.

I click on:
-"Go Advanced"
-"Manage Attachments"
- "Add Files"
- "Browse"
- "Upload"
- I select the image by checking the tiny box at the bottom right of the image
- "Insert Online"
- "Done"
- "Save Changes"

What am I doing wrong???!!!

Following what KDaug does:

From right here on the advanced reply screen:
Manage Attachments
Add Files
Choose File
Browse to find file, assume that's what you mean.
Select file
Open
Upload (It's checked at this point)
DONE
You don't need to hit INSERT INLINE unless you want the photo to be INLINE with the text of your post. Try it without that.

No, he wants to "insert" the image into the post. If you "attach" it you just get the filename and you have to click on it to show the image which is not what he is wanting to do.

Yahoo......success!!! I finally got the image to show up using this method, but, I didn't think that just below the image I would also see a small box that says " attached images" and the name of my attached image as a link. I can click on this and the image shows up. Why does this "attached image" box show up if the image is already present above it??

First of all, great to see people jumping in trying to help! (2thumbs)

I'm going to attach an image as a test below...



I clicked Manage Attachments
I dragged an existing image from Home to the lower part Attachments
I check the checkbox in the corner of the thumbnail
I placed my cursor in my post where I want the image to appear
I clicked on "Insert Inline"
I clicked Submit Reply
The end

Did it work?

Ps...We're getting closer to moving Mazdas247 to XenForo and it should be easier to attach, host, embed, manage etc images and files...Stay tuned! :D

Looks like it worked...I use the other method more often myself but after we move to XenForo...I would not be surprised if I end up using our own system more...That is the goal of course with the move...To improve functionality and the overall experience for everyone. :)

I'm up against an apparent quota on my account. I've had to delete some older pics to upload new content.
