How to add an image to a thread post

Undoubtedly the answer to this question is obvious, but I am afraid I do not know the answer, somewhat a Luddite I am. I attempted to add an image to a recent post, but encountered an odd looking dialogue box after clicking on the image icon. It's preview pane was written in Latin, and there was some other gibberish concerning an "alt attribute." There did appear to be a URL field, but I am looking to insert an image inline, so that it is visible in the post, not by way of a link.

Please excuse the ignorance, always looking to learn, greatly appreciate any assistance with this.

Please read the Frequently Asked Questions page. We try to keep answers to all the important questions in there:

We don't support uploading images directly to TFMR. It is necessary to reference a link to another location where the image exists.

Not sure if TF forwarded the response, but this is due to a recent check we added to determine if the domain is live before attempting to show an image. We were seeing lots of old broken images because sites no longer exist.

The problem with your image is the root domain by itself ( leads to a dead URL. You can try it yourself in a browser. We'll add an exception so it loads properly.
