    Hi,
    How does one use the Insert Image icon?
    I enter the correct URL, but the image doesn't load.
    HELP, please.
    Thanks,
    Angus

    Angus....
    Load your image to your gallery/album....
    then click on the thumbnail to open the image....
    just below the image, you'll see the codes... select the lower one that says image or medium.... copy that entire code and paste it in the post etc....
    that's it....

    If you use the "Insert image" button it has to be a link to an image file address (jpg, etc), not to a web page address. I've added an asterisk in the above codes to disable them both. The first link goes to where the jpg file is stored. The second address goes to a flickr page that shows the same jpg. If the asterisks are removed the first line of code will work, the second one won't because it isn't a link to a file.

    *Angus, just to add to the how to, check out this link in the FAQ section:https://www.mu-43.com/f68/mu-43-com-faq-2733/ and look at the last two hyperlinks for either embedding within a thread or using the gallery to actually insert an image you have already uploaded to the mu43 gallery.

    We've got screen shots, videos and more. Let me know if you need me - just send me a PM!:thumbup:

    *Oops, I see you're all set! Excellent!
