copy and pasting images issue

    Hi, im having this weird issue where the members of my site copy an image on their desktop and paste it on the bbpress text box.
    I really dont know how to be more specific, people open a picture with the Windows Photo Viewer and do right click on the picture, then Copy it and then go to my forum and paste it.
    I tried doing it and the thing is that the image looks like its really there, but when you click “publish” that image transforms to the “url” where it was on the member computer (c:users/desktop/blabla.png).
    Is there any way so i can disable this bug(?) or whatever this is?
    I thought of disabling copy and pasting with javascript, but i prefer not to do it, i will lose more than i’ll win

    This is not an issue with bbPress , it is expected for it not to work since the url of the image is from the users computer.

    Just give your users a place to insert images from the users computer correctly.

    There are two plugins which you can use.

    and this if you have BuddyPress installed and do not mind the visual editor being activated in bbPress. this plugin also allows inline image uploading.
