How To: Add Attachments/Files To the forum
« on: May 14, 2013, 12:30:25 PM »
This is a very "different" forum from most when it comes to adding attachments or files of any kind. Here we'll go over the steps to do this......Also, keep in mind, you can only upload 4 pictures (please try to use 800x600 for easy viewing) at a time, so that is the reason for the additional pictures in 2 additional posts below. Click the thumbnail pictures below for larger pictures.

Ok, let's get started!

1 - After typing your message, click the "Additional Options" link down to the left as shown in picture 1 below.

2 - You'll then be shown a button that says "Choose File" as shown in picture #2. You'll notice the file types that are able to be uploaded to the forum below that button. When you click on that button, a dialog box will pop up allowing you to choose a file to be uploaded as shown in picture #3

3 - In this example, we'll choose the file "New Text Document" as shown in picture #4.

4 - We first must copy and rename this file (shown in picture #5)

5 - Change this to something unique such as the name that you chose for your screen name on this forum and then some random numbers after that to really make it unique!  ;) as shown in picture #6. Then click the "Open" button (picture #7 ) and it's ready for uploading as shown in picture 8.

6 - You're ready to click the "Post" button as shown in picture #7 and you're done!

I hope this helps,
Dave

Hi Guys,

Just to reiterate a point Dave has already madeā€¦

Now that we all have high resolution cameras could we all please, if necessary, resize our pictures to a maximum of 800 x 600 pixels before posting.
This makes the images much easier for everyone to view and also saves on forum memory space (and cost).

Thanks.
