Attaching Files or Photos

To attach a file or photo to a message, follow these steps:

  1. Scroll to the Attachments section below the message box.
  2. Click on the “Choose File” option.
  3. Browse to select the desired file. Select Open.
  4. Choose Add Attachment.
  5. Repeat steps for additional attachments.

IMPORTANT! The maximum file size for attached photos is 2 MB. If your file is too large, you will get an error message when you try to attach it. Resize the photo using your favorite image-editing software and try again.

Insert Into Post

Rather than displaying an attachment at the end of the message, you can choose to insert the attachment into the message.

  1. Follow the steps above to attach the file.
  2. One the file is attached, use the “Insert Into Post” option to the right.
  3. A reference to the file will be inserted at the beginning of your message. This may read something like “[attachment = 23]“
  4. You can cut and paste this code to locate it as desired in your message.

PLEASE NOTE: Embedding images hosted on other sites (aka hotlinking) is not allowed here. If you want to refer to an image that is located on another site, please post a link to the image, rather than using the “Insert an image” button on the editing toolbar to embed it in your message.

Removing Attachments

  1. If you select the wrong attachment, or change your mind about attaching the file, scroll to the Attachments section and select “Remove Attachment”
  2. A pop-up window will appear asking “Are you sure you want to remove the selected attachment from this post?” Select No to complete removal of the attachment.
