Hi,

No one can figure out how to use the new, absurdly overcomplicated, image manager to simply insert an image to a post like you would on any other forum in the world.  I see that the part of it geared for uploading your images to GP probably works, but no one uses that.

Our users already have photobucket, picasa, flickr, image shack, and countless other sites they use to host their images. All we need is a tool to insert the host site's url of the image, which is now gone or hidden from these forums.

Until the fix comes out, you can switch to HTML mode (the tab above the Save button @ bottom of the editor) and paste (or type) the above code to insert pics, then switch back to Design mode.

Agreed we really need a better system and to be able to link images in forum posts.
