[Question] Use attachments in other posts

Lets say I already attached an image in one post.

How would I use that image again, in a different post without having to re-attach it it.

Is this even possible?

Now, this is just a theory because I haven't tried it, but perhaps use the URL of the attachment in another thread? Let me test it now, with this post.

    Only the hypertext works.

    I know its saved on the server though, thats why the Hypertext works, so its hidden somewhere...

    I dont think I've ever seen a way of doing it, maybe Krang knows?

    Allow .PHP files to be used as images.

    xtension



    Do not allow PHP files, as calling it with attachment php causes bugs in the Who is Where Online system.
