Displaying photos in a forum post

    I currently use Mingle Forum for my camera club forum but the current lack of support is worrying and I’m searching for an alternative. bbPress looks great, but one feature we use a lot is the insertion of an inline image into a post – photographers like to show what they have taken!
    Does bbPress support that natively, or via supported plugins? Any issues that a private forum with about 100 members would get into with bbPress and images?

    bbPress includes the WordPress natively supported embed providers:

    Flickr Videos & Images WordPress 2.9
    Hulu Videos WordPress 2.9
    Imgur Images WordPress 3.9
    Instagram Images WordPress 3.5
    Photobucket Images WordPress 2.9
    SmugMug Photos WordPress 3.0

    (SmugMug and Photobucket support is being removed for WordPress 4.0 is released, see #28379)

    For any of the above you simple paste the URL on a new line by itself:

    e.g. https://flic.kr/p/57FFQn

    bbpress

    Any other images hosted elsewhere you simple link to them using the <img src=''> HTML

    e.g. <img src="https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3130/2701069417_4d5234fc18_o.jpg" width="198" height="49" alt="bbpress">

    bbpress

    Doesn’t this require the person to put the image somewhere – ie on Smugmug – and then use the IMG tags to reference that image?

    I was looking for something that allows you to just decide to show a photo in a forum post and upload it then and there to the site and have it display inside the post.
