This is probably long overdue, but here's what I think is the easiest way to post photos to this site. You can post any photo to this site that is uploaded to the web. So anything from Google images or any other website can be posted here. I know some of you link directly from Facebook, which will work for the most part. (Until Facebook changes the URL or deletes the photo.) As long as you have a photo URL (Ex: http://www.website.com/photo.jpg), you can skip to step 6 and follow the instructions from there. The best way to grab the URL from an image that's already out there is to use your mouse to right click and choose "view image" - this will take you directly to the URL, which you can then copy and go to step 6. (You may/may not be able to do this in different browsers. I am using Firefox.)
When you have a photo on your computer or phone that's not uploaded anywhere else, you have to get it uploaded to the internet before you can post it here. This is where Imgur comes in.
1.) Go to https://imgur.com/ You can either create an account, or post without one.
2. If you want to post a photo without an account, while on the Imgur homepage, press the green button in the upper left that says "New Post."
3. Browse to your image that's located on your computer, or drop and drag.
4. Once your image uploads, you'll see it on Imgur. Run your mouse over the photo and you'll see a drop down arrow appear in the upper right.
5.) Click on the blue copy button by "BBCode (Forums)
6.) Go back to your RunningAhead Post and click on the picture button that looks like a mountain.
7.) When the box pops up, paste into the "source" field.
8.) Delete the [img] tags from the beginning and end so you are just left with the URL. See example below:
9.) Leave everything else as is and hit "okay."
10.) TA-DA! You just posted a photo to RunningAhead!
I'll add this later. I almost never upload to Imgur directly from my phone, so I'll have to figure that out first.
Running is dumb.
You can post from FB as well by right clicking on phot and “copy photo address”. Then paste that into RA as above

You're trying to link the direct imgur page. You have to link just the photo address. (What you are pasting needs to end in .jpg)
