    We’ve made a few changes to the board:

    You can include an image from the web in a post, without having to upload it yourself.

    Click the Img button in the toolbar which now appears above the main text box. This inserts the following:

    [img][/img]

    Now just type the image URL between the tags. For example:

    [img]http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/c/c7/The-rotters-club.jpg[/img]

    There are also text formatting options available from the toolbar. These insert various other tags into your post which determine how it will be formatted when someone reads it. Have a play – you can always click Preview to see how your post will appear, and re-edit as necessary before clicking Submit.

    We’ve made a few changes to the board:

    Uploading of images with posts is now allowed.

    When posting, click the blue Upload Attachment tab below the main text box, select your image file and click Add The File. If accepted, it should appear beneath Posted Attachments. Place the cursor in the text of your post where you want the image to appear, and click Place Inline. (Until you click Preview or Submit, you will see a little bit of gobbledygook containing the image filename rather than than the actual picture.)

    Here’s an example:

    Images appear as thumbnails which readers can click to view full size.
