Uploading of photos to threads has been enabled!
This is probably one of our biggest feature requests - uploading of photos directly to threads - well, we've finally got it
How to upload an image to your thread or post
To upload an image, when posting a thread click on 'Manage Attachments
' then in the new window click on 'choose file' then once you have found the file on your computer click 'upload'. Repeat for up to 5 images, then click 'close window' and they should then be listed in the 'attached files' section. And then submit your thread or post as usual. Shortened, that is:
Manage Attachements > Choose File > Upload > Close this window > Submit Thread
PLEASE ONLY UPLOAD PHOTOS THAT YOU OWN OR HAVE TAKEN YOURSELF.
Feel free to use this thread
to test uploading
I would also like to send out a HUGE THANK YOU
to all of our Supporting Members who have made adding this possible. Image attachments
are actually one of the costliest things when it comes to running a forum - they don't only need more space on the server, but use up more bandwidth as well as eat up off-server backup space and backup bandwidth - which is usually measured per GB and can mount-up
I did consider making them available just for Supporting Members but I try not to do that wherever possible.
So while I can't promise they are here to stay, enjoy!
(If anyone else is interested in taking out a sponsorship, you can do so here.)
