Method 1: Photos are on your computer hard drive:

1. You tick the box at the bottom of the post where is says [_] Attach a file after posting.

2. Then hit Submit (just hitting Preview doesn't work)

3. Once you hit submit, you get a screen like the one below (which is a screen capture, not live, so don't click on it)

4. Click on BROWSE and

5. Go to the hard drive Folder and the photo you want and select it and click OPEN.

6. Then hit Submit. In a few seconds you will see the photo url show up in the upper right (as shown below).

7. Then BROWSE again for the next photo and repeat the process as needed. Eventually hit RETURN TO THREAD when you are done uploading your photos.

There are some additional options but that should help you get going.

Hope it helps somebody. Method 2 (which I will do tomorrow) is for photos that exist somewhere other than your harddrive.

I have a related question, is there any way to attach a photo to a PM? There have been several times I have wanted to do this but not sure if it is possible.

Definitely possible. It just has to exist on a public hard drive somewhere because there is no feature to upload when you are in PM mode.

This would be Method 2 which I will now attempt.

Method 2: Posting photos that exist on a public hard drive somewhere.

This could be anything. As long as you can right click on it and get a "Copy Image Location" you can include it in your post here.

For example, I just went to My Ebay to some aerials that I bought. I got into the photos and then right clicked on the one I wanted and then clicked on the Copy Image Location (i.e. the url of the photo)

Then I came back here and tucked the image url into an html format i.e. [img src="imageurlgoeshere"] where [=< and ] => as shown in the screen capture (shown under the aerial photo)

If you press the REPLY function on a post ( Top right hand side of anyones post) then the New Screen with the functions will appear..

Also when you start a NEW Thread, all the functions will be visible straight away..

There is a reply box at the bottom of the thread when you are reading the thread but, as you have learned, it is a minimalist reply, with no options, emoticons, etc. HOWEVER, when you hit either the QUOTE button (which gives you the Full function reply screen plus the quote you are replying to) or the REPLY button (full function reply but no quote), you have the options including the [_] Attach a file after posting box.

Hope you have better luck now that you know this.
