    any time I try to use an img tag, I end up with a weird link


    I try to use my pic host as much as I can, because I know that hosting images, especially for a forum, can eat up TONS of bandwidth...

    Just use the direct URL link, and click on the photo icon above (next to the video, calendar, smiley), and past that URL in there

    Use the "Insert Image" icon, click on the "Image URL" tab, and paste the link to the image there.

    This forum doesn't use BBCode.

    I've been trying to avoid that, since it uploads the image to their server. I've found a way around by viewing the Source of the post and just dropping a html img tag in, just hoping there's a better/easier way to not have them host pics for me.

    Use the HTML one and it works fine   just click preview and you will see the pics populate then hit submit. there is a Wiki on how to do this.

    No, using the URL does not upload the image to the server.

    I cannot even start a thread now. On some I cannot answer due to no submit button. I see no smiles or Image adding buttons either. This just started 2 or 3 days ago. Nothing changed on my computer.
