  • Photo upload tutorial

    Are you having some issues uploading your photos and having them show up properly? Try going through this checklist to get everything looking like it should:
    1. Once you have typed in your text and a description of your photos, click on the attachment icon in the top right-hand corner of the dialog box. It looks like a piece of paper with the top corner folded over and a paperclip on it.
    2. Once you click that icon, you will see two options appear under your text field. "Upload attachments" allows you to physically upload a photo to the forum server. "Upload from URL" allows you to insert a photo that is already posted somewhere else on the internet.
      • Upload Attachments:
        • When you click this button, your file manager interface will open, allowing you to browse through your computer to look for the image you wish to upload. Once you find the desired image, simply click on it and then on the "open" button in the bottom right-hand corner
        • You will now see a very small thumbnail of your image just below the two buttons, along with six options for you to choose from. Choosing any of the "thumbnail", "small", "medium", "large", or "full size" options will insert the photo in-line with your text wherever your cursor currently is. Clicking "remove" will, obviously, remove that photo from your post. A seventh option, and probably the best one, in my opinion, is to simply not select anything. This will have your image show up at the bottom of your post as a clickable thumbnail that will open up in a new window at Full Resolution
          .
        • Once you have uploaded all of the photos you wish to show, you can preview or post your reply by clicking on the appropriate buttons in the bottom right hand corner of the dialog box.
      • Upload from URL:
        • This option allows you to show a photo that is already posted elsewhere online. In order to do so, you will need to copy the link for the photo you wish to show. To do so, simply right click on the photo you have found and select "copy hyperlink".
        • Now you can return to our forums and click on the "upload from URL" button. This will pull up a text box where you can paste the image hyperlink. After you have uploaded all of the photos you wish, you can preview or post your reply by clicking on the appropriate button in the bottom right-hand corner of a dialog box.

                  Of some reason I may not produce any attachments. Why is that?

                    Tirfing, As uploading attachments seems to be functional for everyone else, I am assuming that this is an issue on your end. It's possible that the platform that you're using may not be compatible with this forum software. What are you trying to upload from? A PC? A Mac? A tablet? Your phone?

                        Testing with Windows platforms that I have available to me (Windows 7Pro, 10), everything seems to be working properly.
