How do I include pics with my post. When I click on the image icon it asks for a URL? What's up with that?

You need to host your images somewhere, like google photos, get the link and when you post it the image will show. There are other "free" hosting services, just google for some and make a choice.

I use IMGUR for posting my photos. Most of the time I use WIN10 Snipping Tool to copy JPG photos I like on-line to IMGUR... IMGUR assigns the HTTPS addresses the forums needs to post photos. Imgur also has a setting for different sizes of the photos which is neat to have... When posting to the various RV forums I use their IMAGE posting service and most often they ask for height number which I usually add 300 to that.. I leave the width blank... You can add up to the 500 size I think is what most forums want to be the max...

Most of us old timers all liked to use the PHOTOBUCKET posting service but they eventually stole all of our photos and wanted to charge fees for their service. IMGUR is still free to use... I eventually got most of my photos back from PHOTOBUCKET but it took some time doing that...

Now all of my photos are kept on my hardrive and transferred to IMGUR from that..

IMGUR is almost a CLICK CLICK thing to do when posting photos on the various forums...

This is my trailer setup on a camping trip to CAMP DORIS in the Wichita Mtns WILDLIFE Refuge at Medicine Park, Okla a few years ago...
