I have tried to add a .jpg image to the question on the forum. I use the syntax in markdown cheatsheet with ![alt text]. It doesn't upload the image.

How can I solve this?

Thanks in advance.

Hi a k,

You first need to upload an image to a site such as Imgur which will give you the markdown code post-upload, simply copy and paste that markdown into your post and you'll see an image.
