    I hope this is the right area... but this is either a question or a suggestion. Whichever way you would like to look at it.

    How do you post images that you have uploaded in your attachments so they are visible where people don't need to click them? I myself skip over attachments very easily without even noticing.

    Thanks!

    Trying now... OK - it's not working. There must be a way but the and [url] tags are not working.

    Then again, based on the type of spam that's been posted here recently (porn), you probably would not want images to show automatically unless they were moderated first.

    Yea that's very strange, that's what I am noticing too. Maybe the BB Code view is turned off, which disables images or something? I'm not too sure.

    Well, after giving this some thought, I can't vote for automatic display of images because of the hardcore spam that's been posted here frequently. I wish I knew how that automatic display is managed at other such websites, but I don't know how they do it.

    Hi Guys

    Some past porn spam has meant we have turned of the ability to show images. I would live to re-instate images but as Dale has pointed out, recently the spam has been worse.:mad:

    Sorry guys, quite a few young people use the forum to ask questions and I don't want them seeing anything on here which is offensive.
