Showing images in posts
Adding an image to a post

Attachments can now be placed in any part of a post by using the new [attachment=][/attachment] BBCode, if the attachments functionality has been enabled by a board administrator and if you are given the appropriate permissions to create attachments. Within the posting screen is a drop-down box (respectively a button) for placing attachments inline.

I was finally able to upload the milky way photos using the "BB" code in Smugmug so that's what I'll use this Fall to share VT photos when I am up there.
