Just to add, unlikely other boards we can't upload material here so an external picture host is needed.
I usually use imgur.com, works without a flaw and unlike other hoster is reliable.

So I tried to copy the URL and the image will not appear on the thread (Campaign Petersburg). When I post the actual URL, it will take you to the image. So why won't the image show on the thread? Thanks for the help.

Copy-paste your image URL into the Post a reply box.

With the URL highlighted, click on the URL button. This should wrap [img]...[/img] around the URL.

Then, Preview and/or Submit.

Ta-da!

Hmmm,

The wrapping part works, but when I preview, all I see is the tiny image box

Like this:

Then nothing but tiny box
