Hi All,

Computers and I are not friends.  I figured out how to reply and and post topics.  When I try to attach photos to a post and I attempt to preview the photos and text I get a message that tells me "you are not allowed to view attachments".

Any suggestions and tips on working with this new forum's system would be appreciated.

Thanks

Dennis

Do you know where I can find the size limits on the photos?


Thanks

Hi Dennis,
Have you tried posting photos without using the preview option? Let's try it on this thread first, and see if it is a photo uploading issue, or an issue with the preview function.

Use the "Attach:" feature to choose the images you want to share, and then select "Post".

I just tried the Preview option, and it appears it will only show text, and not images when attaching to the post. When inserted into a post, it gives the error message you mentioned. I'll have to look into a fix for this in the forum's software.

For now, you should be able to share your images, however will be unable to preview them before posting. You have 30 minutes after the initial post to make edits if there are any errors.

Below is a help topic on inserting images into a post versus attaching them to a post.
