    Picture issues

    I am unable to view pictures included within a post using Firefox 3.6.23. What I see is a box containing a paper clip and the words "Attachments Included". Nothing happened when I clicked on it. I then went and tried the Internet Explorer browser. Then I could see three boxes to click that brought up the pictures. Are we going to have to bring up pictures to see them displayed or will they be displayed automatically. Right now on my computer they are not being displayed within the context of the post but have to be viewed outside of the board. Is there something I need to change on this end? Does one browser work better than another? Ann in TN

    This may be a browser issue. You are using an old version of Firefox. The current version is 7.0.1, which I am using. I have no problem with viewing photos. To update your Firefox, click on the help menu, then "about firefox". It will tell you your version and should have a link to update (at least that's how it is on the current version - the older versions may have this elsewhere).

    I can't find out how to post a pic onto my blog and no one has given me any suggestions or hints. I have an attachments manager, but that is it.

    Creating and editing blog posts is the same as doing it in Threads (Topics).

    I recommend you always choose to "Go Advanced". That's where all the goodies are.

    Images are inserted in one of two ways: Direct or Thumbnails.

    If you want to insert the picture, click on the Image icon. (move your mouse around. each icon will reveal a text identifier.) You can upload the image from your computer or embed a URL.)

    To attach thumbnails, click on the Attachments icon. (looks like a paper clip.)

    Personally, i prefer to upload the photos from my computer. I find thumbnails annoying and they take extras steps to attach.

    How to post a picture

    Hi, I'm still struggling with this new format. I posted a reply on a thread I started a few days ago ..... tried to attach a picture but, alas, it didn't show up. And the posting doesn't show up on the main page either. I'm NOT very handy with computers until I really LEARN the changes. Can anyone help me out here?

    When you want to add a picture (at least this is the view I seenon my iPad), you 1) click on POST QUICK REPLY on bottom right. 2) click on GO ADVANCED 3) click on MANAGE ATTACHMENTS 4) browse for your file then click on UPLOAD 5)then click on CLOSE WINDOW 6) click on SUBMIT

    Is there a way to delete an attachment from my post?

    Hi,
    I was wondering if there is a way to delete a picture attachment from one of my posts? The edit button no longer appears on that post.

    I've looked and looked...in the attachment folder I don't see a way to delete pictures to even free up storage space.

    Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    I could be wrong, but I don't think we able to delete photos, and we have 20 minutes to edit.

    Free up storage space???? You can delete your copy of a photo from your own hard drive to free up space for you, but deleting from the board wouldn't impact you at all. So, is that what you are asking?

    Hi Nancy,
    No I was talking about attachments here on the boards, not on my computer. If you go to attachments it shows that we have storage limits on the site. So with being said I thought we'd be able to delete pictures that were no longer necessary. Or in my case wanting to eliminate a picture within the post I made.

    Thanks for your response I appreciate your input.

    You don't need to delete the photo from your hard drive. I believe simply renaming your photo will do the trick.
