Instead, to upload images to our server, you'll use the standard phpBB facility for "attachments", as follows:
- While creating or editing a posting, click on the "Attachments" tab, just below the Preview and Submit buttons.
- Click the "Add files" button to open a file navigator panel.
- Select your file and upload it.
- Click the "Place inline" button, to inject an [attachment] ... [/attachment] tag pair, something like this:
Code: Select all
Note that the [attachment] tag is used only for images that are uploaded to our server and are displayed in the same post to which they are attached.
Images that are displayed from other servers, and images that are attached to other posts, will continue to use the [img] tag as before. (To determine the URL of an image that is attached to another post, use your browser's function to "Open image in new tab" or its equivalent (the exact name varies between browsers), then copy the URL from that new browser tab. It will be something like "https://www.photomacrography.net/forum/download/file.php?id=123"
I'll expand this explanation as it becomes more clear what people need to know.
