    Default Uploading Photos

    3 METHODS FOR LOADING ATTACHMENTS

    NUMBER ONE

    Click on Post New Thread or Reply to Thread.....
    Add your text, then in the top row of icons above the text section click the Attachments/Paperclip icon,Atachments.png
    or you can scroll down the page to find the Manage Attachments button.

    Clicking on either will get you to a screen that looks like the one below
    Man attach scrn.png

    • Click on Add Files and you will get another box, click on Select Files
    • This will allow you to select photos from your computer
    • Selected 1 or more photos and click on Done, you are then taken back to the first screen and you will see your photo(s) under Manage Attachments
    • Click on Submit Post and you will see your new thread/post with your photo(s) as Attachments at the bottom of the post.
    • Allowed Filetypes: jpg, jpeg, png, gif


    NUMBER TWO
    If you find the method above a bit convoluted.....


    Try this:
    Click on the following .....

    • Insert Image icon
      Img icon.png(second row of icons from top of text box)
    • Then... From Computer
    • Browse
    • Choose your File
    • Then Upload File


    NUMBER THREE
    You can also upload from URL using the Insert Image icon.
    This is a quick and easy way to upload attachments from your website or others if you know the URL and have permission of the owner.

    Click on.....

    • Insert Image icon
    • Then... From URL
    • Type in url or paste it in - much quicker
    • Make sure the check box for "Retrieve remote file and reference locally" is unchecked.
    • OK


    Hope this is of some help.

    Cheers - Neil

    G'day Neil,

    Please forgive my ignorance (I'm not real computer savvy , but I am having trouble opening photos in people's posts.

    I can open photos sent from their phones and whatnot but the ones with the paperclip and that say attached images don't open when I click on them.

    Assuming it is just operator error......mine!
    Any ideas?

    Thank you and keep up the good work......bloody fantastic website.

    Grant (Brigalow).

    Hi,
    May be you are trying to open pictures lost in the great picture delete.
    A lot of pictures went AWOL after an update.
    Regards

    Thank you Neil..

    Just one question with method number one...

    When I pressed the "ADD" button you got a popup that allowed a number of files to be added simultaneously;

    Now the popup has one at a time with and option to add again.
