The best thing to do is to upload pictures to this website. Then as long as duramaxforum is up the pictures will be too. To upload pictures:
1. Start a reply and scroll to the bottom of the editing window. On the left you will find "manage attachments". Click on it.
2. In the window that opens click on "choose file".
3. A window explorer like window will open. Find the files you want to upload. Click on the first one.
4. Click on "open". The windows explorer window will close and you will be back in the manage attachments window.
5. Click on "upload". It will take a few seconds but soon the file will be uploaded to Duramaxforum.com and it will be available as a link at the bottom of the post you are writing. That's not exactly what you want though.
6. To put the picture (or other file) into the body of the text click on the link in the manage attachments window. A new window will open with the picture in it.
7. Copy the link to the clipboard by highlighting it, right clicking on it and clicking on "copy".
8. Click in your text where you want the picture to be. I usually put a couple of blank lines before and after each picture but you don't have to.
9. In the edit bar at the top of the window you are typing the message in click on the icon that looks like a post card. I think it is actually supposed to be a picture of a mountain with the sun above the mountains but to me it looks more like a post card with a stamp.
10. A new window will open that says, "Please enter the URL of your image:". Type ctrl/v or right click on the box and click on paste. The address of the picture will be entered into the box. Click on OK and the picture URL will be entered into the text box where the cursor is. The forum software is smart enough to know that you don't just want the link. You want the picture to display there and that is what it does. If you want to find the link you can click on the picture to get it.
It's just that easy, ha ha ha ha.
To upload the next picture go back to step 2 and repeat the process. You can shortcut the process a little by uploading each picture you want by repeating steps 2, 3 and 4 before uploading them as a batch in step 5. Or you could do 2, 3, 4 and 5 repeatedly until all of your files are uploaded. I haven't found a good way to shortcut steps 6-10 exactly but I find it less confusing to do step 6 on each picture at one time and then move on to 7-10.
This will give you the pictures in the text where you want them but you will have a bunch of links at the bottom of the post. At this point you can go back to the "manage attachments" window and remove each attachment. The pictures will still be on duramaxforum.com and will still display in the message but the links at the bottom of the post will be gone.
