    Posting pictures to the forum how to:

    There are a few different options to post pictures to the forum, I will cover two of the more popular ways.

    Option1

    Using a hosting site such as http://photobucket.com/ or http://imgur.com/ (other options are available) as they eliminate the sizing limits found when using the forum as your hosting site. I will not go into how to use either website as the information is readily accessible on the respective website.

    Once the picture you are wanting to post is hosted you simply need to right click on the picture. copy the image URL, select 'Image' button at the top of the new reply box, paste the URL in to the image pop up box, and select insert.

    Option 2

    Select the 'Upload a File' from the blue buttons at the bottom of the reply box, select the picture you would like to upload, and select the 'Reply to Thread' button. This option limits picture sizes at which point you will need to use option 1.

    Posting videos to the forum how to:

    With the new forum software we can post more variety of videos than ever before from sites like Dailymotion, Facebook, Liveleak, Metacafe, Vimeo, and YouTube.

    This can be achieved by simply using the video button in the top of the reply box and simply pasting the URL for the video in the video pop up box (similar to the image pop up box shown above). How to get the proper URL for posting of a video can differ from website to website, I will not go into detail on this as the information is easily accessible from the individual website or by a google search.
