Attachments?
 
I've been a member for a while now, made several posts, but I still can't add pictures to my posts. What do I need to do to be able to attach pictures?

It can only be done from image hosting sites such as https://imgur.com/upload and maybe others like SmugMug, Flickr etc but the imgur one works because I've used it. It's free. You then need to post the link to the image in your forum post

Thank you. I do have a photobucket account, but I haven't used it in several years, preferring to post directly onto the Forum from my computer. So I guess pictures are just not in my future here on SW.

I had Photobucket too but they turned it into a pay only thing and closed everyone's free accounts

I have noticed Alan that you can now view some photobucket pics now for some reason I'm sure you couldn't see any when they first stopped it being free.

I think I deleted my account, it wasn't great anyway with ads causing it to crash all the time, on mine at least.

Imgur isn't great either as the pics are huge, are there any free decent ones?

I've used this one hassle-free since the implosion of Photobucket. You can resize for message boards etc. on the top dropdown.

Thanks, I will save that one

Thanks Keith, good one to save too. IMGUR is really fast. Chrome did a switch on app and converted the images from photobucket so they can be viewed on most screens now. Photobucket ads are still a nightmare and it is so slow , would have deleted them ages ago if I could be bothered to go in but avoided.
Yvonne Photobucket wont 'activate' 3rd party hosting unless you pay for it , so if you haven't paid then that's the reason for not being able to post on here.

The free hosting sites like IMGUR and postimages will 'enable' it - it's not SW that's stopping it you need to register with the free site if don't wish to pay a 3rd party hosting site , load up and then can copy paste into SW.
