I will try and show how to post photos easily to the chat and your forum posts.

For this we will use imgur.com

On the imgur website, click the new post button:

[attachment=2]Untitled-1.png[/attachment]

Now click browse OR alternatively drag and drop images from your computer onto the web page

[attachment=3]Untitled-2.png[/attachment]

It will then upload the image(s) for you

[attachment=4]Untitled-3.png[/attachment]

Hover over the image that was uploaded and click the down arrow that appears > Then click Get Share Links

[attachment=1]Untitled-4.png[/attachment]

Click on Copy under BBCode (Forums)

[attachment=0]Untitled-5.png[/attachment]

You will have a image BBCode like as follows to put into the chat box or a post.

Code:

It appears Imgur has a new "look" when you open it to post a picture. It would not work for me yesterday. When I compared what did not work to what did work in the past, I saw that the difference was ".jpg" in what worked in the past.

So, in order to post a picture with Imgur, follow Rick's instructions above and post the BBC share link as usual into the chat box at top. But before you send your final posting into the chat, add .jpg to the end of the BBC share link.

You can now post pictures from Imgur again without adding the ".jpg" to the end of the link. The copied link works now like it used to before. Just copy the BBC Share link and post. 😊
