    The new media gallery allows you to upload images from your computer, tablet, smartphone and embed videos from YouTube. Media added to the gallery can be easily added to forum posts.

    Adding Media
    To add new images or embed new YouTube videos, click on the “Add Media” button.

    Next, you will be given a choice to add the media to a pre-existing category or to a user album. When selecting a user album, you will be given the choice to select an existing album or to create a new one.

    Once a category or album has been selected, you will have the option to upload an image from your computer, tablet, smartphone, elsewhere from the web or embed a video from YouTube.
