How to include images in your posts


If you want to include images in your posts, you will first need to have the image online somewhere so that you can link to the image. There are numerous hosting services like:,,,, etc,... You can also make a small donation to the site and have access to the TWT Photo Gallery. Once you have the image online, there are two ways to use it.

First is the URL tag.

{url=}Description of Picture{/url}

For example: This is the clickable text description for a link to a banner image

You can also use the IMG tag like this:


For example:

In both cases, when you actually do this, replace the {} with [] so that the BBCODE actually does what it should. I had to use the {} for display purposes here.

The first method [url=...] will display a link to the picture and when clicked, it will open a new browser window with the image in it. The second method [img] will actually show the picture in your post here. If you use the IMG tag, please make sure the images are 550 pixels or less in width or it messes up the display of the forum threads. Use the URL tag if it is a big picture.

You can also use the attachment feature when posting. You may include up to five attachments per post. When you are in the post editor, look down under the editor window for the Manage Atachements button. Click this and then browse to the file on your computer and click Upload. Attachments will display at the end of your post. Only registered TWT members will be able to view the attachments.

The number one rule for this forum!
Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. Eph 4:29 (NIV)
Think before you post. Leave out the vulgarity, personal attacks and foul language!

"However lofty the goals, if the means be depraved, the result must reflect that depravity." - Leonard E. Read

Lies are fragile. They require constant attentiveness to keep them alive. The exposure of a single truth can rip through an ocean of lies, evaporating it instantly. - Brandon Smith

If you want government to intervene domestically, you’re a liberal. If you want government to intervene overseas, you’re a conservative. If you want government to intervene everywhere, you’re a moderate. If you don’t want government to intervene anywhere, you’re an extremist. — Joe Sobran

It is no crime to be ignorant of economics, which is, after all, a specialized discipline and one that most people consider to be a ‘dismal science.' But it is totally irresponsible to have a loud and vociferous opinion on economic subjects while remaining in this state of ignorance. – Murray N. Rothbard

When one possessed of the Truth suffers from a heavy heart he is susceptible to a more dangerous affliction — the craving for power to eradicate error, to cause Truth to triumph by force. - Frank Chodorov

Where politicians flourish, long history has harshly taught us, people and their liberty wither. Where the state is god and the "public interest" worshipped, individual man will be found bleeding upon the altar. - Karl Hess

The accepted wisdom is that without the state, society would collapse into lawlessness and crime. In fact, lawlessness and crime define the very nature of the state and the society organized by it. - Bionic Mosquito

But the myth of the rule of law does more than render the people submissive to state authority; it also turns them into the state's accomplices in the exercise of its power. For people who would ordinarily consider it a great evil to deprive individuals of their rights or oppress politically powerless minority groups will respond with patriotic fervor when these same actions are described as upholding the rule of law. - John Hasnas
