    There are two ways to put photos in your post:

    1. For this one you need to have the image hosted somewhere already. In other words, you need to be able to view it in your web browser with a "http://" at the front of the address at the top of the browser. To insert the image into your post, take that address - the whole line - that starts with "http://" and put it between the tags:

    [img] [/img]

    For example
    [img]http://www.thunderbeastarms.com/images/cycle_01.jpg[/img]

    The URL you put in these tags must be an image, not a web page that has the image in it.

    2. If you don't wan to do that, simply use the "Upload a File" option when you post a reply.

    In either case, please make sure the image is not more than 1000 pixels wide.


    Want to post a Youtube video? It's easy. Again, there are two ways

    1. Put the youtube video-ID in the following tag: [media=youtube]FbPC6YgnQ_Q[/media]

    2. Use the "media button" in the post editor and simply enter the URL to the youtube video. The editor will emit the code just like you'd typed it in
