    Hi,

    I am struggling to find how I can upload/attach images to a thread from my PC rather than via URL.

    The FAQ page says there should be a 'Manage Attachments' button when opening a new thread.. but the only thing relevant I have is the 'Insert Image' button which is URL only.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks,

    Chris

    Ahhh it must be because I'm not a full member, I only get the 'From URL' tab.

    Damn, Wanted to document a small project on a thread! >.<

    Thanks though, appreciate your time

    Yes I've gone down the route of linking from a site that can host images.

    Thanks Rob

    Aye Up,

    First time on the new site and finding my way around.

    I am a full member and I too am only getting the URL request when I click on the image icon on the top tool bar?

    If I click on the Upload file button in the bottom right hand corner I find that I can nav to an image on my pewta that I want to post.

    I am given the choice of a thumbnail or the full image.

    Whichever I select - if I subsequently Preview the message, unlike on the old site there is no image just a blue character link to it.

    If I click on that link the screen changes and I get BushcraftUK Community - Error.

    I've added an image to this message - Hanwag SF GTX boot to see if it appears on the site when I post this reply.

    If it doesn't - I would like to post a flummaxed smiley face but when I click on the smiley icon nowt happens - where have they gone - isn't their accommodation on the new site ready yet? lol

    Aye Up,

    I can see an image of a bloke posing in a nice jacket - is it wool? what brand is it?

    And can you see the Hanwag boot?

    Nice jacket - bet its expensive.

    having posted in this thread I clicked back to the New Posts list and I'm noticing quite a delay before (if at all!) the recent additoons to the thread are showing. On the old site it was almost instantaneous.

    I only got back to this thread by going into my own recent activity field - anyone noticing the same?

    Ah.

    Could it be that it only appears in 'Recent Posts' - if so what's the difference between a 'New Post' and a 'Recent Post'?

    Are recent posts ones that are ongoing conversations and new posts new to a viewer when you login?

    Whoa - smiley icons just arrived - 12 of them.:)
