    Thanks @mercime

    So this looks like it will allow users to click a button to upload and attach images? That might be a nice addition, but I don’t think it answers the question I asked. I want users just to be able to paste an image URL in and have that be embedded (like they can do with a YouTube video). Maybe thats just not possible right now and this is the closest solution.

    @blg002 sorry, I thought you wanted more than what’s already available in default bbPress (aka Sitewide forums) installation. Go to Settings > Forums > Main Settings – Auto-embed links – check this “Embed media (YouTube, Twitter, Flickr, etc…) directly into topics and replies”

    @mercime yeah, I’ve had that checked but it doesn’t seem to work with regular old image urls (.jpg|.png|.gif). For example…

    This should show an image:

    This forum might not have that option turned on, but it does the same thing in mine with that option checked. Maybe that’s a bug but I’m not finding good documentation on what exactly is supported.

    @blg002 bbPress forums includes TinyMCE editor. If you’re in Text editor mode, click on img button and insert the image url. If you’re in Visual editor mode, click on the image icon and insert the image url like what I did below

    @mercime Yeah I’m aware of that was just hoping for a slightly easier solution with an auto-embed. Thanks for all your help though.
