How do I add pictures or video to my post?

One way to include images is by uploading. You are able to add images by selecting the camera icon under the comment box. You will be prompted to upload an image.

Another way to drop in a picture is to enter its URL into your comment. We'll take care of the rest!

Given that animated GIFs are so popular nowadays, our new commenting widget lets you search for recent Giphy images. Select the "GIF" icon to pick from a range of animated pics.

NOTE: When posting an image, you'll still be asked to post a text comment.

For videos, you can simply paste the URL from the following sources and we'll display the video player for you:

  • YouTube

Add links to other pages by typing in or copying its URL into the comment box. It will automatically be hyperlinked.
