Hi,
Does anyone know how to display an image in an argument; I've tried basic HTML but it doesn't seem to work.

Much appreciated

Upload the picture to your photo album on your debate.org profile. Once its uploaded, right click on the image and click copy.

Go into you debate, where you post your argument, make sure you are in RICH TEXT format, right click, and click paste.

Voila.

Sometimes you have to do it more than once. & sometimes the poster can't see it, while others can.

The following is an excellent step by step directions from Imabench: http://www.debate.org...:

"If you want to add pictures directly into your debates, it is a rather simple process.

Step 1:
The first thing you have to do is save the picture you want to use in your argument to either your computer or a folder on your desktop where you can access it later.

Step 2:
When you are on DDO, there is a tab that says "My Photos" which is under the account menu. Under that tab you can create a new photo album or use an already existing one to upload your photos

Step 3:
Simply upload any photos you want to use in your arguments to the photo albums by clicking the "add" button. There are many ways to add photos to an album but this is the simplest

Step 4: Make sure the photo was successfully uploaded. Sometimes you have to do it twice because it didnt work the first time around

Step 5: Now in the debate you are in, click on "Rich text" at the top left corner of the box where you type your arguments. Scroll to the place you want to insert the picture.

Step 6: In the Photo Album, "Copy" the photo, not the URL just the photo, then simply "Paste" it into your arguments where you want it.

Tada!"
