Attaching Photos/Documents To Your Post

video tutorial photos attach




Here's a quick tutorial on how to attach a picture or document to your forum post or reply.

If you're replying to a message, click the More Reply Options button. This will bring you to a new compose window.

There's a section below your message compose window that says "Attach Files." Click the Choose Files... button.

A dialog box will pop up where you can select your pictures/documents you want to attach to the post. It will automatically begin uploading your pictures/documents.

To the right of each picture, you'll see a link that says "Add to Post". This will insert that picture into your post wherever your cursor is located. This is helpful if you're doing How-To or Work-In-Progress posts.

If you choose not to do this, your pictures will show up below your post that says Attached Thumbnails.

When you click the Post button, your new message will now include your uploaded pictures/documents.


Let us know if you're still having trouble and we'll get you squared away. :cool:

easy enough thanks!

Super easy Travis, even for a dim wit like me. Thank you. Oh!! and I like the penguins too.

I can't see how to use the emoticons in a reply to a post. There is no button to access them in my window or even in the More Options window.

If you click on the smiley face, more optional emoticons should appear at the bottom of the window.  At least that is where I see them.

 

:) :roll: :shock: :o :cry: :popcorn: :drool:

That's just it. There is no smiley face at the bottom of this reply box! It just says Post and More Reply Options. It doesn't show up in More Reply Options either! Frustrated 'cause I see everyone else using them.

PS, I've enabled emoticons in the Post Options but I don't see any available.

 I have a document list that I refer to that has names and 'codes' . That's how I do it. :o :x :|

Well, that one didn't work!

Try this one.

Do you have Java turned off?  The editor tools, including smile, are all java based.  Do you see other tools like Bold and Italics in your screen?

Thanks Travis.  I guess Firefox doesn't have Java unless you request it.  Installed it and activated.  I had to click on More Reply Options to see all the options including emoticons.  Couldn't see them in that window before now so thanks for the help.

I have found the box on another section, but iot dooes not apear on this reply or give the option. However, if that box does show, then it's OK.  Thanks for the tip, it saves having to get a URL.

Thanks Travis, I have managed it and just put up my first set of photos in the WIP section.
