  • How do I post an image from the internet into my posts, comments etc?
    • You just copy and paste (or type) the link into the text box. The link must start with http:// and mustn't have any other text immediately before or after it. To get the link, one way may be to click the image with the right mouse button and selecting 'Copy image location', 'Copy image address', 'Copy image url' or similar, depending on your browser. Make sure that no other text is immediately before or after it, and the image link must end in 'jpg', 'gif', or 'png' for the site to recognise that the link is an image.

      For example, if you were to post http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/thumb/a/ab/UEFA_logo_2012.png/150px-UEFA_logo_2012.png it would automatically make that into the image shown to the right.
