How do I put files into my posts?

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to ask a question in the Arma 3 editing forum.

I'd like to post a picture of the error screen I get, along with excerpts of the script that, I think, produced the error.

I suppose that could copy and paste the text of the scripts, but how do I insert a screen shot into my post?

 

Sorry for the noob question, but I is what I is...

Thanks for the help.

Upload it to an external file host. Uploading files through the forum directly isn't allowed.

Thanks for the quick reply.

 

external file host?

I'm not sure that I know what that is.

Facebook?

Sites like Filedropper,  mediafire or many others. You upload a file to the site, it gives you a link you can share with others.

 

The downside for free hosting( without any sign-up/registration) is usually the length of time the file is kept active. It varies from one site to another. Some sites will keep the file active as long as they're being accessed regularly. I think most of them have a set time limit, of roughly 30 days. After which the link goes down.

 

If you just want to post an image, go with something like Imgur. It's well known and simple to use. Click on the "new post" button on that linked page.
