Default Downloading Pics on Forum?

How do you determine a URL (http://) for a picture?

I see the "insert image", but have no clue what the URL is for a pic.

Alright, this will get geekie in a hurry, and for that I apologize.

The insert image will hot-link an image from somewhere else. For example, let's say you found an image on a website, you can do a right click on it, and click on "Copy Image URL" (on Chrome - right click menu will be slightly different across browsers, but you get the point). You then use that link to paste into the field where it asked you for the image URL. However, hot-linking is often blocked by the hosting sites, as they do not want their bandwidth being used to display their data (images in this case) on other websites. This is why it's a good idea to use the "Attachments" (see paperclip icon on your post message box) instead of "Insert Image." This will allow you to upload the image to the forum's server, and insert it from there.

Steps on how to attach images to your post are outlined here: https://www.victoryforums.com/showthread.php?t=1688.

Please add your bike's year and model to your signature. Here's why.

Blest with victory and peace, may the heav'n rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: "In God is our trust."
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!
