    Attaching pictures while editing

    Hi Basil... Looking for help again... When editing my article, is there an "insert" or "attach" facility for adding photos/images etc? I seem to have done it when I first created text but see no way now!

    Hi Cutrog, fist, note that I moved your question to a "new" thread in the main "Forum Help" forum. (You had posted a reply in the an existing thread about Private Messages it the Video Tutorial Sub-forum).

    Anyway, you should see the image insert icon in the editor when you are editing one of your posts. (You must be logged in of course)

    That's strange. Couple of questions. 1) Are you talking about editing a post in the forums or are you talking about trying to edit a Private message?
    2) Which forum is your post in that you are trying to edit
    3) Are you clicking the "Edit Post" icon directly below the post you are editing?
    4) If all true, then could you sent a screen shot of what you are seeing when you edit: bcfadminbritishcarforum.com
    Thanks

    I am editing my original article using edit icon. Not sure how to take screen shot. Sorry to be somewhat lacking. I guess I should not really get involved. It's taken me a day to find your reply...

    No no no! Don't be getting so frustrated that you "go away". There is normally not a time limit on when you can edit a post, but there is a limit on the number of images you can add to any post. If you're wanting to add more images, then rather than editing your original post, try just making a reply to your post and adding images that way.

    Ah ha! So I just learned something! (You had originally posted your question in a thread about another topic, so I moved your question to a "new" thread in the appropriate forum).
