Posting photos and video

We've had a few questions about posting photos and video on the Forum. I know on other Forums you can embed them right into the post.

Marc has been advised that doing so will slow down the Forum, taking longer for posts to load. Since a lot of us sneak on here when we're supposed to be working that's probably not a good idea.

What we're recommending is that you post photos or video on Photobucket (www.photobucket.com) then link from here to there. That will allow you to show what you're talking about rather than simply describe it with words, while still keeping the Forum running smoothly. There is no cost for signing up.

Once you have the photo or video posted, you can use the icon that looks like a yellow square with a couple of triangles in it to create a link.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

You should be able to post your photos and video right into the page by embedding them.
Why would you want to send people away from the forum.
It has been my experience that there is no significant slow down with embedded photos and videos.

Just my opinion.

I agree with Coachmom.

I am a member of quite a few forums and none of them are any slower than this one is.

I say allow it!

I've been trying to add a profile picture, maybe I'm just not seeing, but how do I do it?
