Title: How to Post Photos to the Forum
Post by: Erica McPhee on July 07, 2014, 11:10:37 AM
I used to recommend posting using a photo server but I no longer recommend that unless you use Tumblr. The easiest way is to use the Attachment button (see instructions below).  :)

Okay, I so need this - I've been looking in past tutorials, since I know it's been discussed, but cannot figure this out.  And I did run into the broken link yesterday as well, while going through old threads.

I am so eager to know how to post photos! Thank you, Erica!

I must have done that on a sleepy day.  ???

Once you create your post, you can post a photo using the "mona lisa" icon at the top (below the B for bold button) if you are posting from a photo hosing site like Tumblr. Otherwise, the easiest way is to click on the "+Attachments and other options" button that is just below the white box.

Once you click on that, you click in the "Attach:" box and then click "browse." Select the photo and then click Open.

That's it. Then click Post.

Let me know if you have any questions.  :)

Thank you - I think I got caught up on the pasting links, etc. instructions, and did not register that attachments showed up actually within the body of the post.  Whoopsie daisy.

Now I understand how to post a photo or attach something, but how do I view an attachment? I see the little paperclip next to a post but it's not clickable. Seems so basic but I can't for the life of me figure this out!   ???

Thanks!

Unless the photo is part of the post (and not an attachment), you will not see it unless you are signed in. So, make sure you are signed in. That little paper clip is just to indicate there is an attachment, not a link to it.
