I can't post pics in pm either. It may have somthin to do with being a paying member. I tried to pay a few times but it was paypal and I don't have paypal since they terminated my account for buying gun parts from ebay.. I will never have paypal and tell others to get rid of it. Because they also froze my account and I couldn't get to the money in it. Beware of paypal.

Pretty sure that icon is for links where a picture is parked, imgur or photobucket etc.

The above is in "upload" mode. You may drag a photo over if on a computer with a mouse or click on the (Or click here) icon to open your photo gallery and import a photo to upload.

Click on the figure-eight looking icon to switch to photo link mode. That'll open up a box where you paste the link to where ever the photo resides on the Internet to share it.

Once either action is done, you'll see a photo in your forum post. Then click the Post Reply button.

It might work like that for a contributor but not for a non contributor.
Yup - I just did a test (non-contributor). I can add a picture via a link to a picture host like imgur/etc, but can not upload directly for my computer. So if you're not a paid member, just upload your pics somewhere else first, then link to them.

It works if you are a contributor. I contributed using a credit card last year but the system didn't recognize me as a contributor until WEG helped out and did it manually for me a couple months ago. It has been an ongoing technical issue apparently.
