    This question is about inserting images in this forum?


    I'd like to know how I insert an image in my posts without it repeating the image below the main body of the post.

    It seem that every time I post an image I end up with is appearing twice, I've messed around with it but when I try and remove the attachment the picture disappears from the post too.

    I finally gave up and decided to ask.

    What am I doing wrong?

    Oh, Great, this time I posted an image to demonstrate it and it worked correctly.
    I just did it in another post and I got two images.

    Scroll down. LOL

    Anyone know what I did differently?

    How are you adding the image?

    Do you use the insert image button at the top of the reply box or the manage attachments at the bottom

    I usually go for the insert image from the icons at the top of the message reply

    whenever I post an image, I usually use "insert inline" and it just displays the one image, as observed below:

    you can also do it Paul's way as well, give them a try and see if it works for you Mike

    edit: testing out this theory, if this edit is successful, I should not see the images underneath this text.

    I use the insert image icon at the top, but I usually also end up with another one showing up as and attached file under my message.

    I thought I did it just as I did in the message above but in this case it worked.

    On occasion I've deleted the attachment only to have the image in the post disappear too.

    I don't think that I did anything different here and in the other post I linked to.


    Let me check the insert inline thing...

    I don't get the interface that you are showing...

    When I select Upload File(s) it just plugs it into the message.

    But it seems to be working normally now.

    I don't know what I'm doing differently, I've had this problem for quite a while.

    I use the same method (insert image icon above message) and have only seen the pic repeated if I edited the post and saved it again. The only way I found to get rid of the repeated pic once it's there was to delete the message entirely and re-enter it.

    Hi Strollin.

    That's it, I edited the post above yours and the images all showed up a 2nd time, before I edited it they only showed up once.

    Well at least now I know what's happening.

    I guess I'll have to quit changing my mind. LOL

    just edited my above post, no repeat of the images, might need to bring this up with admin. I'll post it in the bug and suggestions thread.

    A little test if I may, click this link and scroll right down to the bottom and see if advanced attachment uploading is on, if not, select on and see if that helps.

    I always post my message, then edit it and add my picture. Using the paperclip icon up top. Just like that, never a duplicate

    I use the File Uploader (as seen in MrNeeds post 3 above).

    However, I click "Done" and then use the "Paper Clip" icon's drop down arrow to actually insert the image.
