Attaching Files in the Forum

Postby rick » Wed Jan 25, 2012 10:19 am

Here's some instructions (& attached illustration) to attach files directly to a forum post for anyone having trouble getting it to work...

  1. Click "Choose File" & browse to the file on your computer that you want to attach.
  2. Click "Add the File".
  3. Select file & click "Place inline" to display in posting area.

I think the 2nd step is probably the culprit of most problems. After you select the file on your computer, you still have to click "Add the File" to upload it to the forum.

Feel free to practice here if you want.

Can this be a "sticky" post for a while Rick?

Yes, we'll leave it as a sticky.

I'm a newbie with the smart phones. Are you using TapaTalk?

I'll give it a try tomorrow.

Always do sober what you said you'd do drunk. That will teach you to keep your mouth shut.

Rick,

Everytime I try to upload a pic I get a notice in red that says "The file is too big, maximum allowe size is 256KiB". I don't understand how others post videos and numerous pics and I can't get a simple pic to post. Do you have any suggestions?

Thanks.

Disreguard. Figured it out from another one of your posts. Thanks!
