How to add images to a post
« on: 07 January 2019, 10:57:45 pm »
Photos or other images can be added to a post by using the "Attach" section at the bottom of the "Start a new topic" or "Reply" form.  See image below:
  • Click on the "Choose File" button and choose the image you want to add to your post.
  • Leave the setting to the right of the filename as "End-of-post expandable thumbnail".
  • If you want to add another image, click on "(more attachments)"
  • Then just save the post.

There's a limit of 2MB per image because storage on the forum costs money.

If you've got an image that is bigger than 2MB, then try:
  • cropping it to just show the bits you need
  • resizing the image to about 1024 pixels wide or tall using a tool like Preview on MacOS or Paint 3D on Windows.  On iPhones, you can crop the photo in the "Photo" app, but beyond that you might have to download an app like "Image Size" or "Image Resizer"

Note that the Preview button does not show images or other attachments in the preview.  So, click Post and don't worry, you can always go back and edit it.   If you do want to "modify" your post, then you click Save when you've finished edited - a bit inconsistent but hey, lets call it quirky!

It's a very basic system but it works.

Re: How to add images to a post - mobile bug fixed

A bug that prevented some people from attaching photos when viewing the mobile version of the site has been fixed - hopefully that'll help.
