Restricted from using links and images in forums posts?

Is there a trick to unlocking the capability to use links & images in posts on here? I see others are doing it but I’m getting blocked with a dialogue that says I’m not allowed to use either.

I checked the Forum Guidelines READ ME and didn’t see anything about a new user quarantine or restriction on this. Pretty difficult to show issues without the ability to use links & images… wondering if there’s some obvious activation or step I failed to do that would give me that capability. thx

Nevermind. This just literally fixed itself when I posted this ^^.


Probably worth mentioning this restriction in READ ME FAQ. thx

I could be wrong about this, but I think new users are in a probational period and once that passes, they are able to use all publishing features.
