I'm sure its been asked but I couldnt find the answer in the first three pages of this forum.

I have the image loaded in my gallery but I cant figure out how to link to it in a forum post. I hit the "Insert BGG Image" icon and get the "Error No Image ID Specified Response" I tried putting in an html link and just typing then highlighting the number and get the same message.

Thanks.

To see how anything was done in a forum post (image link, video link, special formatting, etc.), just use the 'Quote' button to the lower right of that post. You can then copy exactly what they did, substituting as necessary (in your case, the image id for the correct image.)

the image id is always shown in the picture galleries somewhere left up.

QuickQuote is a faster way to see how someone has done something.

To insert an image from your gallery, or any BGG image, use and fill in an image ID number. To insert an external image use and insert the URL (right-click and copy image location, or something similar, depending on your browser.

Welcome!
