I dream of boys with big bulges in their trousers,
Never of girls with big bulges in their blouses.

…and look forward to meeting you in Cóito.

I must have a look at the image tool. Poor squirrel though.

It may be that 'Insert image into message body' doesn't work the way you expected. If you're referring to the button between 'Insert e-mail address' and 'Add numbered list', you have to give it the web address where the image is hosted, and it incorporates that web address into the message. The image is retrieved when the message is displayed and not incorporated into the message body. Actually, I just checked to make sure, and on a test message (that I'm not going to actually post, because the image would be of interest to no one here), Firefox shows all the other images as coming from forum.iomfats.org, but the "embedded" image is coming from my web site. So you can't use 'Insert image into message body' to embed an image that isn't already hosted on the web. If that's what you were trying to do.

For example, the image attached to your message can be embedded using
    [img]http://forum.iomfats.org/fa/1642/[/img]
to produce:

http://forum.iomfats.org/fa/1642/

NOTE: This worked when I was editing it; if anything in normal iomfats site maintenance would cause that image address to change, it might well stop working, so if that's not a picture of a really uncomfortable squirrel, please accept my apologies. Or if this isn't related to your problem...

Thanks, Darrell. It is indeed a picture of an uncomfortable squirrel and I have just notice he is hanging there. My first impression was that he had ripped his bollocks right off and thr photographer had been lucky.

I'm in no way a an IT techie, but I've copied your explanation for future use. Thanks again for your trouble.

Hugs
Nigel

OMFG
The agony!
Hey, does this count as animal porn?
I'm worried if anyone asks in future if I've ever looked at animal porn I might have to say yes.
And worse, wouldn't this also be sadistic animal porn?
Or, even worse, did it survive? If not, this is sadistic animal snuff porn.

On examining the photo carefully, I would say that the animal is almost certainly dead. Furthermore, the photo was probably set up with an already-dead animal.

Nigel - My rambling discussion of message hosting and embedding turns out to have been unrelated to the problem you had. I failed to notice the "Insert image into message body" action that appears at the bottom
of the message window after an image file is attached to the message. Having noticed that (finally), I had to try it out. You are, it turns out, entirely correct - clicking on that "link" does nothing. If, however, you drag that link into the message body, it looks like the following line:
    javascript:%20cke_insertImage('http://forum.iomfats.org/?t=g etfile&id=1644&private=0');
If you get rid of everything on that line that isn't inside the quote marks and then surround the result with [img]...[/img], you get what clicking on that "link" is probably supposed to produce, as illustrated below:

Test image:

http://forum.iomfats.org/?t=getfile&id=1644&private=0

Notes: When I previewed this message, the javascript line had a space in the middle of the word "getfile"; that was added by the message editing software all on its own and should not be there. It will not be there in the message editing window, which is how it should be. If you are unable to drag the "link" into the message editing window (which works for me in Firefox - I haven't tested it in any other browser), try right-clicking and selecting "Copy link location" or its nearest equivalent from the context menu, and then pasting the result in the editing window.

Finally, I really want that shirt!

It seems we have a fault. It is quite possible that a recent system upgrade created the lack of working of the link. I'll let Megaman know.
