Hi Joyce

Have you tried downloading any photos to your computer in My Documents or something then giving them a name.

Then you can click on the paper clip icon on the top toolbar of when you are typing a post.

A new window will open.

Then you can click Browse in the "Upload from your computer" feature.

Come on Joyce, have another go.

When you make post or thread, you get a window pop up for your post/reply.

At the top, on the 'tool' bar, there is a little paper clip, click on that and a new window will drop down.

It will say "Upload file from your computer".

It also tells you the maximum file size you can upload. If your file exceeds this, it will fail.

Click on "Browse". That will take you to files in your pc and then you choose which file you wish to upload.

When you have chosen your file, click "Upload" next to the "browse" buttons.

Have a go, coz I want to see what you upload.:rolleyes:

Steve.:)

Not sure sure what I did right. Type your message, if you want to download something from your pc click on browse (upload from computer) then click on open.

Click on upload and the file should then be in the file in current attachments. I found when pressed submit reply the imaged upload onto the message.

Hope this makes sense, still no nearer as to what the paper clip is etc.

:biggrin:
