Re: short video on How to post and attach photos here
As is oft said: "our mileage differs" (slightly)
You didn't mention that we have to be in "Advanced" reply/post mode.
If you've clicked "quick reply" to start your posting, you then need to click "Go Advanced" below the text-entry window:
That brings up the "advanced" screen, with the paperclip icon:
(the advanced screen also accesses Smileys, too )
When *i* click the paperclip, i get a different "Manage Attachments" box. Mine has 5 File "slots":
As i click each slot's Browse button, a File Explorer box opens to let me find/specify the file/photo i want.
When i'm done selecting them, i click my *single* Upload button, and the display shows the upload process and the resulting list of files:
Then i can close that "Manage Attachments" box (i can revisit it if i need to change things)
What your video did NOT cover was the technique for inserting photos in the midst of a message, such as i'm doing in this posting.
For that, first click *where* in your posting you'd like the photo to appear.
Now click the PaperClip *again*.
Now you'll see a list of the photos you've uploaded:
When you click on one of those, the "magic string" ATTACH 39484 /ATTACH will appear in the body of the message, and that's what invokes the photo when people are reading the post.
We're limited to five photos/attachments per posting.
The *size limit* for each type of item is listed in the "Manage Attachments" box, beneath the button zone (and partially shown in my images above).
Thanks for the video, there's also another "how to" on it here: http://www.sprinter-source.com/forum...read.php?t=467
