Just Visiting Your Planet
The first underlined section is out of order. You hit Quick Reply then Go Advanced. If you just click on the Reply button you will save yourself one step in the process.OK, so I'm now trying to follow this following bit of advice -
You don't have to use the links way of getting your posts on the site. You also don't have to use the drag and drop feature. Hit "Go Advanced" instead of "Post Quck Reply" at the bottom of the page. Next page will have a paperclip icon in the menu. Hit that, and you can choose what image you want to upload the old fashioned way. That is, as old fashioned as anything gets on the internet.
You don't have to worry about resizing either. It'll attach as a thumbnail, and people can click it if they want it to be bigger.
Now I don't know whether this process is called hot-linking or hosting-and-posting or some other jargon label, I just want to be able to make it work
1. So I click on "Go Advanced". It doesn't work and says I have to use quick reply.
2. So I hit quick reply. There is no paperclip icon.
3. So I hit reply. Hooray, there is a paperclip icon.
4. I hit the paperclip icon. It opens a box allowing me to select a file/picture, but limiting the size of the file/picture to 976.6kb.
You will notice that I have underlined certain parts of the quote from Admin and highlighted them in bold. This is so that someone can actually answer whether this advice is in fact correct and if not, how I can find the option to:-
a) Use a paperclip icon to attach a picture which quote - You don't have to worry about resizing
which will then
b) quote - attach as a thumbnail, and people can click it if they want it to be bigger
The attachment to this post is originally sized at 3.83 MB and uploaded via the paperclip. It was automatically resized to 1.01 MB during the upload. This will only work for pictures. If I tried this with a pdf or other non-picture file, it would fail.
