you’re right, embedded images can’t be posted in forum topics. If you post an image using the ‘image’ content type, it goes into the image galleries. I fixed that problem listed in the other forum thread (was complaining about not being able to create the original image)
now to post images inline, you need to use HTML… and you need to have the permissions to do so. Ken, I’ve given you that permission to use the “Full HTML” input format. you’ll see this menu appear just under the body box above the save button. Give it a try!
Now allowing this format to all is a security risk, so I may extend the default post input format to include only the IMG html tag, or create a less restrictive format to do this.
