How do you get a chart to update in your post?!?!
Is there some magical way to do this?!?
If you try insert an image the normal way (by clicking the insert image button), the platform takes a snapshot of the image and loads it to our servers. That snapshot does not update, so if you want to insert updating charts into your post, you need to do the following.
The current editor you are using to post is called a rich editor, it does not accept HTML.
To make the editor accept HTML you need to click on "Source".
Once you are in source mode, you can enter the html required that will tell your browser to go and get an image from another website.
To do this, you need the URL of the image!
Thankfully this is pretty easy, just right click on the image you want and select copy image URL or location. In this example Im grabbing an chart of AAPL off Finviz.com:
Once you have clicked Copy Image Location, you need to paste that URL into your editor. But before you do that, you need to tell the editor that its an image!
How do you do that?!?!
You type in <img src="pastetheurloftheimagehere">
