    From Your hard drive

    Method 1:
    If you have an image on your hard drive that you want to post in the forum, you can use the attachments button (paperclip icon). Attachment is however not available in 'Groups'.

    (Note that you can also upload your image to 'Dhammaloka Albums'. In the top menu select Community/Albums. In that area you can create any amount of personal and public albums and upload the images from you computer.)

    Method 2:
    When you view images in your album at Dhammaloka it will have the URL and BBcode displayed next to it. Copy this BBcode using it as step 1 in the process described above. This method works in 'Groups'.

    (Tip: you can send images from your Dhammaloka albums directly to any social groups (i.e. Groups) that you belong to…)
