    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!


    Yours in health,
    WebMD Message Boards Management

    Useful Things:

    • See what's happening with your baby and your body — right now.
    • Get trusted WebMD information and track your baby's milestones with the WebMD Baby app for iPhone and Android.

    I learned how to post images within my new posts and replies, so I wanted to share. It's not the greatest way, but it's something.

    If you have an online photo album that is public, you just have to get the link of the image you want to post. I have a flickr account but you can use facebook, or any other site that you store images.

    Once you have the link to your photo, click the last icon in the new editor tool bar. It looks like a photo frame icon (it's next to the unlink icon).

    Put in the link to your photo, and click OK. The picture should show up. Here's an example of a recent ultrasound. I hope this helps.

    Awww great job and the perfect picture for the tip. Your instructions also beat my long winded ones by a mile!

    Just in case someone likes long winded:
    If you want to include a picture within a post-
    (not the persona/profile/avatar image that appears next to the member name on their post each time) you need to have the picture available already uploaded online. So upload those ultrasound pictures and pictures of the cute stuff you are collecting! We want to see them.

    Once you have a picture uploaded online -like on Flickr, Facebook, Picasa, Picapp, Photobucket, online photo album, a personal website, etc-then you just use the url for that picture.

    Be sure you own the picture or have permission to use it.
    There are some free use picture sites so if you want a generic shamrock or beach or whatever out there but they will ask you to link back to their site. Please follow any rules the picture hosting site requires.

    Once you have located a picture you want to use-find out the URL. You can right click on the image and click "copy image location" if you aren't sure about the url for the image itself. You need the image URL-not the page the image is on. This url will end in .jpg most likely.

    For the example, I will use a picture here on WebMD:

    For example-we have a picture in our Heartburn Overview Slideshow at WebMD that has this as the image URL:

    http://img.webmd.com/dtmcms/live/webmd/consumer_assets/site_images/articles/health_tools/heartburn_overview_folder/getty_rf_photo_of_pregnant_woman_eating_icecream.jpg


    To turn a url like that to a picture in a post, click the photo icon at the top of this box. It is the one that looks like a blue square in a Polaroid-sort of. Paste that entire url into the pop up box and here is that picture:
