    There is a way to get the picture that you uploaded into the post to show text below that picture.
    You need to use the Attach tags.

    Great one, I've been wondering about how this was done. So I've given it a try and bu**ered if I can make it work, think I'm getting lost between step 3 and 4 and this bit
    PHP Code:
    View attachment 131610
    Needless to say, I'm no wiz with computers. Have you any suggestions........

    Ok, I see the problem Vic now that I quoted your post.
    You are trying to use the attachment ID for the picture that is in my post.
    That won't work.
    The "attach" feature only works if you upload a picture to the post you are making.
    If you upload a picture to your post and use its attachment ID code it should work just fine.

    Will certainly prove useful. Thanks! Having them below my posts didn't bother me because of keeping all the text together but still will no doubt use it at some point.

    That'll help with labeling multiple-image posts...won't have to keep scrolling up and down because I forgot what image #12 was supposed to be a pic of....:oops:


    PheasantPlucker.gif

    Heh. It works! (and for the record, this image can easily be printed small enough to attach to the back of a retail-store nametag....yep...I'm such a wild and rebellious child...)

    There isn't a box for it as far as I can see Vic. What to do is type out the code and then paste the attachment ID in between the tags.

    When you reply or create a new post, you should get a screen like the pic below. You just add the attach string as well as the picture ID

    Step 1.) Attach a picture to the post you are making and preview it. The picture will be shown under the post like normal.

    Step 2.) Copy the properties for the picture that you have attached to YOUR post. (Put the properties string of text in the post or look at it with notepad.)
    The properties for this picture in this post is:
    Code:
    http://www.ww2aircraft.net/forum/attachment.php?attachmentid=132511&stc=1&d=1274570425
    Step 3.) Find the attachementID in the string of text that you copied.
    The attachment ID number is 132511 for the picture in my post. (attachmentid=132511)

    Step 4.) Type bracket [, the word attach and another bracket ] to close the first word.
    example: [/PHP]

    This attach feature will not work if you are trying to use an attachment from another post.
    The attachment you are using MUST be attached to the post you are making.

    This is the attachment I uploaded for this post.
    F-14.JPG

    Text can be shown below the picture now.
    You can also upload more than one picture and have it shown in the same manner.
