I am aware of the FAQ thread. I posted this because, for whatever reason, there are still many, many comments from people who are having difficulty in posting images, links and clickable images.
Whether people look at the FAQ thread and, when they see it doesn't actually contain the FAQ, ignore it or whether people read the FAQs and still have problems, I don't know, but there seems to be a need for this information to be put down in one easily accessible place.
I know that this information is on the site, it's where I got it from, but it's almost impossible to find:
From your FAQ thread, I've followed the link to the FAQ, then I've had to find the "I'd like to do something in the forum, where can I find out how?" FAQ, which takes me to another page which gives me 2 options ("General Forum Usage" and "Reading & Posting Messages"), the second of which, after hunting through several other sections, makes a general reference to the BB code.
Also, the only information that I have posted here that is in the FAQs is how to post a plain (or not clickable) image. I know the system automatically parses links etc, but the use of tags is usually quicker for the poster and allows for the alternative text links and clickable photos which you don't mention at all in any of the myriad FAQs.
