Posting pictures problem.
« on: February 10, 2009, 19:08:21 PM »
What am i doing wrong?

I follow the fool proof guide but still fail to post a picture!!

I browse my desktop and select the desired picture, it appears in the box next to the browse button, but when upload is hit, after a short wait the screen appears with no attachements!!!!

Whats wrong with me?

Help jon....

O.K so you loaded it but after you clicked on the upload radio button did you see "manage uploaded attachments in the box above?
Once you click on that it shows the uploads, in the drop down menu look for the small icon with the +, click on that and your done.

I will say, that if the picture is placed right at the top of the page it might need to be cut/pasted to the place ya want it.

Hi and thanks.

The manage attachements box appears but "manage current attachement (0)" is what it says! If i drop the menu down all it says is "there are no items currently".

How small do these files have to be? I have shrunk one down to the minimum size I can (554KB) and it still will not upload

I recommend using something like photobucket to upload & store your pictures.

That way you have access to your own pictures from anywhere, you have more upload space & it helps with the management of space for this site as we don't end up with massive picture folders.

Follow photobuckets instrutions on how to register & upload to them.

You have a few options on how to display your pictures, one way is to simply copy the IMG link & paste it into your post on here where you want the picture to display.


To upload pictures on here is now a little different to when Tony described it due to new software.

When you compose a message on here you will see a + Additional Options that if you open up will give you the upload options.

Allowed file types: doc, gif, jpg, mpg, pdf, png, txt, zip
Maximum attachment size allowed: 1024 KB, pics per post: 25

Simply make sure your picture is an allowed type & below 1024kb, then browse to find it, upload it & save.

Looks like we aren,yt able to see any of the old pictures now due to changes with Photobucket .

Is there any way of getting them back ?

Yes, but the posters of the topic have to reupload them to our PostImg account.
We admins can't do it, as we haveno access to the links of the pictures.

This is an evil trick from PhotoBucket...
Keep it very sideways..
