Below the Quick Reply text box, click the "Full Editor & Preview" button. Then below the larger text boxthat appears, and to the left, select the "Attachments" tab. I don't believe images will attach ... yet. (asof now) to post and image upload to an image hosting site, get the URL from that site, then here click the image button above the text box and put the URL between the IMG tags.

Cheers,
Dale Y

1moldmaker: dyarker is correct. Direct uploading of attachments is not working at the moment. This problem is being addressed and will be functional shortly.

Hi Dacflyer. Hope you are dry by now.

Photobucket decided to block access from third parties a couple of years ago; and I closed my account. Have they resumed access as originally ? Can you please attach here an image from your Photobucket the way you describe ?

Right now you have to use a imaging host like www.photobucket.com it's free to create an account. Or other hosting site.
Add your foto there and then it makes URL links, copy that link and post it here, and then we can see the foto.
it's tedious for now, until they can get it to where you can post directly to here..

Hey guys, I believe the problem with direct uploading of attachments is fixed. Please try again without a third party image hosting site and report any malfunctions to me.

I just tried to attach a drawing as a PDF and it was rejected.
That seem like a bad restriction, so what file types are allowed?
