How to add a picture to a forum post.

Been trying to figure this out since the day I signed-up to expat.com

When I add a picture it comes up as what seems to be a "broken link". See below:

https://www.dropbox.com/s/wz7jzuxiwt5zzj3/love.jpg?dl=0

I've PM'd a regular user, and also a moderator for support. But not heard back from either of them.

Has anyone successfully added a picture to a post?

Hit the landscape picture in the edit post toolbar and insert your link there

Don't use Dropbox.
Use other online photo albums like Flickr, Photobucket, Google Photo, etc. etc... even your FB album.
There are dozens of them that allow one to create free online albums.
Make sure the 'access' option (of your uploaded photo) is set to 'public' and you copy the IMG link not the page link.
Also, some of those photo-hosting sites don't allow users to share their photos on internet. Please take care of that as well.

Dropbox is tricky, it intercepts image urls and displays a webpage.

Instead of
ht tps://www.dropbox.com/s/.../love.jpg
or
ht tps://www.dropbox.com/s/.../love.jpg?dl=1

put ?raw=1 on the end, like
ht tps://www.dropbox.com/s/.../love.jpg?raw=1

and use the mountain icon like @1312j said.

How do I know?
I googled dropbox image link and this blog explained the workaround.

Did use the mountain/landscape icon before.

Instead of
ht tps://www.dropbox.com/s/.../love.jpg
or
ht tps://www.dropbox.com/s/.../love.jpg?dl=1

put ?raw=1 on the end, like
[b] ht tps://www.dropbox.com/s/.../love.jpg?raw=1

Let me try it with "raw=1" instead of "dl=1".
