    Is there an FAQ?

    I tried a few ways including Google+ (which seems to be absolutely hopeless). I wouldn’t mind a way of using Flickr, Dropbox or Google Drive so I don’t have to sign up to anything else.

    Hi.

    Upload your images to a file sharing site, flickr in your case may work..

    Then to insert the image click the IMG button on the tool bar, or the image icon if using the visual toolbar, and a box will open for you, paste the URL of your image into that box and it will appear.

    Go to the image on your Flickr and on the top right there is an arrow that says share, click that and select the BB code and just paste that directly into here without the IMG tab being used, that’s what I did above (plus I trimmed out the bit about it being your picture)

    Yeah, I’m just messing with it now.

    Someone should invent a button for it.

    Sorry about the IMG tab thing, I had forgotten Flickr was a bit different to photobucket and a few others.

    BTW, bit off topic but how do I delete one of my own posts?

    Like this one?

     

    You just need to find the actual image URL and then that is all you need.
    Seems quite a few file sharing sites like to hide the URL so you have to use their pre-programmed share buttons, which often include other stuff.

    You can’t, but let me know and I can bin it.

    Yeah, just doesn’t or didn’t work with any url I tried from Flickr 

    Thanks for the workaround anyway.
