From the FAQ page:

To include an image that is not uploaded as an attachment and is located on another website, you can do so by copying the full URL to the image, (not the page on which the image is located), and either pressing the 'Insert Image' icon or by typing
after it, ensuring that you do not have any spaces before or after the URL of the image.

Kristy,

Many thanks for your reply.

Although, I don't seem to have a "Manage Attachments" button whenever I click a new thread.

For images, the FAQ mentions:

If you have uploaded an image as an attachment, you can click the arrow next to the 'Attachment Icon' and select it from the list. This will be inserted into your post and can be located where you want it displayed.

I don't see an "Attachment Icon" when I post a new thread either.

Any ideas what I may be doing incorrectly or why I may not have these features?

Cheers

Correct, attachments are disabled. Which is why I quoted the part of the FAQ I did.

You need to upload the image somewhere yourself or if it is on another site, link to it. You can not attach it to your post.
