I recently posted a review and thought it would be nice to include a picture. This feature was recently added to general forum posts and is greatly appreciated. It would be nice to see it for reviews as well.

Eric,

You can do this now if you know the HTML code for an image tag. The image would need to be uploaded and hosted somewhere else too like photobucket.com or your own webspace.

The image tag would have the "src" option set with the full URL to the image file. For an example of the code you could look at the resulting code from the "Insert Image at Cursor" option in the normal forums.

I put an image here in my review of the G6:

Thanks Jhaura, I was thinking about doing just what you suggest. I would host the image here by posting it in the test forum. I was just trying to encourage an easier way.

p.s. Yesterday, I showed my dentist the titanium stake toothbrush you inspired me to make. She got a real charge out of it.

Cool beans! I saw you used the ti-nail instead. Nice job. I also made that switch early on as the stake was always in use when I needed it and it was a little too flimsy. The nail works much better.

I'm working on adding a ti potty trowel head on it. Some tubing with a hole the same size as on the nail and a cotter pin. That nail can really be made to serve many purposes. I see you did some work on the trowel with ti. Very nice. Are you going into business? :)

Can't wait to see what you come up with! Thanks for the compliment on the trowel. No business plans at the moment. I certainly don't plan on hand crafting ti potty trowels. Way too much work.

This feature is now available - inserting photos directly in reviews. The same code from the forums has been ported over.
