    While I posted a pic a dy or so ago I'm having trouble repeating the feat. Can anyone offer a tip here?

    When attaching a file to a post, I click Browse, navigate to Windows Explorer, find the pic I want to attach in Desktop, Web Cam pics and select. The file name appears in the box next to Browse but will not attach to the post I want to make. Must be something simple here I'm not doing.

    Thanks if you can take me by the hand and lead me down the path of righteousness. :)

    What is the extension of the file? It has to be a GIF, BMP, or an JPG.

    testing. could it be it only takes the jpg extension and not jpeg? We'll soon find out ;)

    It takes jpeg. has to be something else then. Could it be that image has been used here already? I know if you try and upload a picture after it's been posted...the software won't let you. Even if you rename it, which amazes me. It's like the software sees the actual image. Freaky ;)

    LissaKay Oh ... Really???

    ditch,

    You aren't, by any chance, hitting Preview and then Submit, are you?
     
  17. ditch

    ditch Downunder Member

    YES I am. I get the feeling though that I shouldn't be doing that.:(

    LissaKay Oh ... Really???

    That's where your attachment is disappearing to. It doesn't upload when you preview. Either preview, then browse to the file you want to attach, or just submit without previewing.

    :)

    Thank you. :)
