They have that functionality turned off, you're not overlooking anything. You can use the img tags, but cannot attach.
Thank you. I see that I can use the image tags, but I can not find a way to place a picture image between them. I was able to copy and paste some text between them, but the associated picture (.jpg) image would not paste. If images of text are the only things allowed, "[Img]" is very misleading and not very useful.
Is it really that limited in PMs?
I'm not quite sure you understand how to use the image tags, so allow me to explain:
The functionality of these tags is to allow you to paste an image URL surrounded by the img tags. Then the image will automagically show up in the body of your post or personal message once you "submit" or "preview". You don't paste the image itself between the tags, just the location of the image on the web.
The image tags will not
allow for posting an image that is on your computer. That would require attachment, which is disabled for PMs - when you attach
a file it is uploaded to the forum from your computer.
Hope this helps.
