Uploading of photos to threads has been enabled!

Hi Everyone!

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

Thanks!

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.)

Azz, where on earth have you hidden the Manage Attachments button?

Glad you've introduced it, but...you've got me scratching my head here!
