Title: how to post pics?
Post by josephine on 28.09.2014 at 11:41:12
OK, I'm a dork- I can't figure out how to post a pic. Keep getting error message "..reselect file in browser box.." which isn't working  :P

There should be a button below the emoticons under this text box that says "Choose File" on the Attachment 1 line. Is that not working?

I selected "Choose File", then "Post Message", and then the error message comes up. Tried using the tool bar button to "insert image" too. I don't need a photobucket account or anything, right? Pics can still be uploaded directly to the forum?

No, you don't need Photobucket, you can upload directly from your computer. Are you sure the image file is showing up before you hit post?

OK Mr. Fancypants, I'm the dork  ;D  (Actually I knew that. Will try to post again this weekend.)

OK, nevermind. I'm clearly doing something wrong and cannot figure it out. Keep getting: "NOTE: If you had an Attachment in your post, you will need to reselect the Attachment again in the Browser Box for security reasons." No amount of reselecting anything is working  :( 

Anyway, I was trying to post a preview pic of my new mansion. Hoped to have it out by now but got stuck with work and whatnot. It's still coming soon though.

Where are your priorities? You can't let work get in the way of mansion building.

;D

Josephine, you are selecting the attachment file by clicking on "Choose file" below the text window, are you not?  Then a box similar to a save or load box should pop up.  You navigate to the folder with your picture file, select the file and click on "Choose" in the lower right corner of the selection box.  Then "Post Message" below

Oh Semi-Native!  ;D

brell- that's exactly what I'm doing. Figured it out though- I get the error message when trying to "preview" the post, but not if I just hit "post message." I've never tried to post a pic before so maybe this is normal? Anyway... mansion announcement coming soon  :)
