    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

    It's been suggested that we leave a space between the start of a post and the triggering part.

    Write something innocuous in the first line. then leave some spaces between in and the subject matter. this should take care of accidentally triggering someone.

    How and Why to Report a Post
    How to post a pic

    I know this question gets asked pretty often so I thought I would add this tip for anyone trying to post a pic that they have saved to their computer.

    First you need to upload your picture to a picture hosting website. A couple of free hosting websites that I like to use are and

    Once your picture is uploaded to the hosting website, you are going to look for the "Image URL" which might also be called a "Direct link". Another way to find this is to right click on the image, select properties, and find the URL.

    Next you need to copy the image URL.

    Then come to WebMD. When starting a discussion or replying to a discussion, above where you enter the text you will see a tool bar *. One of the icons on the tool bar is the "Add Image" icon. Click on the icon and where it says "Enter image URL", you are going to paste the image URL.

    You should then see the picture displayed in the text box.

  • note: if you are using a cell phone, the tool bar won't be present.

    Hope this helps! Let me know if you have any questions.
