I do kind of like our little

I do kind of like our little iconic pics. Now I'll always remember Fechter in his leather as "Elvis with a brain" :-)

Need to use the IMG tag

The way to get an uploaded picture to show up is to use the IMG tag. The "Compose Tips" page has instructions. Oh, well, you have to scroll down to the BBCODE section of the instructions.

The HTML way to do it is this:
<img src="/path/to/file.jpg">

Or,
<img src="/files/scooter%20rt%20side%20view.jpg">

Which gives you

If you are linking to a picture and the picture is larger in width than 500 pixels then use:
<img src="/files/scooter%20rt%20side%20view.jpg" width="500">
This will cause the picture to be displaied no more than 500 pixels wide.

I'm still missing something

I see how to insert a pic URL. What if I want to upload the pic? I did that when I started the thread, but when I reply, I don't see a way to upload another file. Guess I could use imagebank or something.

Raw HTML is not exactlly user friendlly for first time users.

Use the file attachment

Use the file attachment function at the bottom of the page submission form -- press, I think "attach" -- this uploads the photo to 7gen.com and gives you the pathway to use as the URL in the
img src="URL" tag.
You can either do a hard link by using the entire url like "http://test2.7gen.com/files/myride.jpg" or just the path part "/files/myride.jpg " If you just use the path (which I don't recall offhand for sure) then the photo link will keep working when the site is moved to a new domain (because the domain remains unspecified). If you hard link it, the url will be broken when the site gets a different domain (because you did specify the domain which later changed). Perhaps David can let us know if he'd prefer we upload to one of the free file/image servers so as to minimize bandwidth and hard drive requirements, or if he feels he has enough at this time for us to upload our images here, soft linking them to keep the links to pics working.

David: is there a way to escape special characters on this forum? I tried "\" but that did not work.
