I was trying to reply to a thread earlier, wanted to insert photos in a particular spot, but was having trouble. Thought I'd try a couple here and document my steps, that way if I forget later, I can come back to this.

inserting one (random) photo below using the Attachment tab at the bottom of the window):




Now I want to type some thoughts, then add another photo under here: (incidentally, it says I'm limited to 3 attachments):




I don't think this will work the way I want, but here goes the post.

Edit: nope. They ended up at the bottom of my post.
Edit2: and in reverse order of how I attached.

If you load the images onto another site, you can insert links to them in the places you want to in your post. I believe many people on CodeRanch use photobucket for just that purpose. For example:



I think the image above is the one you tried to post first. And this next one is the one you tried to post second:



All inserted using the [img] and [/img] ubb tags.

Thank you so much Andrew, that's exactly what I was missing.
