hi, the method i want to use is uploading directly ot the forum .
 however when i click on the optional attatchments tab , all it shows is notify me of replies , do not use smileys etc .
 there is nothing underneath this like in your instructions

Sorry emdee, but after a corrupted pic was uploaded onto the forum a short while ago, which caused all sorts of techy nightmares, the 'attachment' facility was disabled to stop a repeat of the situation.

The only way to now add pics into your posts is to use an external hosting site such as Photobucket, Flickr, Imageshack, etc etc.

Using a source such as those will ensure the integrity of the forum is not compromised in the future.

hth, Gareth.

It really is easy using photobucket, even I managed it and I haven't got a clue about computers. Once you've set up an account click on upload and sellect the photo from your computer it will then show in your gallery, if you click on it there are boxes underneath it youu then have the option to send a link or copy the immage. I copy the immage and then when I am writing a post right click and paste it into the post. If you're not sure if you've done it right click on preview before you post it and see for yourself if the immage is there.
I hope this makes sense as lie I said I haven't got a clue about computers and had to be shown by a 10 year old.
Stupid boy.
