    So how are attachemnts/images from our computers put into our posts now?

    I looked at this page:

    https://www.wilderssecurity.com/help/bb-codes

    but either I'm dense, or there seems to be an explanation missing.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    I tried most of that, but after getting to Step 3, I keep getting this error message:

    And I'm not sure what that means because the image that I tried to attach was a jpg. However, I tested it with another image on my hard drive and it worked. :confused:

    Every detail can matter. The file extension must actually match the file contents. There is also a size limit which I think is 512KB. If an upload of one file worked, but another file did not, then look to all the attributes and make sure the contents match the extension type.

    Thanks. There apparently was something wrong with the image that I was trying to attach.
