How can I add images to a post? I have 3 photos on my phone that I wanted to share, but all the inserts require a link...

The easiest/best way is to upload the images to

Code:
https://m.imgur.com/upload
and click the "X" to remove the ad that says it's easier to upload via the app. Behind that will be a basic system to allow you to either take a photo, browse files, or paste in paths to images on the web. You probably want to browse files.

Choose the image you want to upload, select it.

Let it upload.

On the screen after it uploads on the left top will be a drop down menu that says "link." Click on the drop down and choose BB Code URL (or something with BBCode in it)

Copy the entire contents of the box, it will look something like <IMG>http://domain.com/image.png[</IMG> but instead of < and > it will be [ and ].

This is the direct bbcode that can be pasted right into any text box on the forum and it will turn into the selected image once you submit the post.

You can repeat for multiple images, I believe up to 10 per post.

Alternatively you can just paste the link at the top without changing it to bbcode URL and it will still show, just as an embedded image from imgur rather than a direct image.

Link Only =

BB Code=
