    Default test trying to add images. my images do not attach

    this is a test
    Trying to add an image.

    I attach the file in the file chooser
    hit upload and nothing happens.reckjmm.jpg

    this is ridiculous, there's a file chooser, but it won't upload the file.
    yet if I point to a web site it downloads it... that's ridiculous to have to upload an image to a remote location to get it on here.

    thanks, but not ez pz.

    so much different than every other forum I have ever been on. All just use file chooser, and submit.

    so much more difficult.

    Thank you.reckjmm.jpg

    Check the image size. In the past there was a restriction on size. Now the software will resize the image up to a point.
    I usually have no problem with a 250 - 60kb image size.
    Check the "Sticky Note" at the start of the South Bend Forum, 'Sticky: Posting pictures.........."

    The PM forum is a bit clunky but the price is right and there is a lot of useful content from users.
