    I'm posting it here because I don't know where else to post it.

    I want to post an image. I try the image icon and it asks me for a URL, but when I do so and post, it just shows as [​IMG]

    Images are usually just copy and paste from the host site. (Right click source image - Copy Image - Right click text box on EP - Paste Image).

    Make sure it's a direct link to the picture. Also, make sure it's not a picture that you have to be logged into whatever site it is to see. Can you post the link without putting it into the image tags? It'd help if we could see the URL you are trying to use.

    Of course, when I need to go get the link, I lose internet.

    Well, here it is. I hope this helps.

    There's the problem. Flickr doesn't play nice with other websites.

    Try uploading to a site like Imgur, and go from there.

    Ok, I hate to be that guy and bother you again, but I tried imgur and it still isn't working. I tried posting the link directly and also using the image button to enter the URL. I just get the link or the characters but no image.

    Any help is much appreciated.
