    Can't Upload Pictures from Computer

    OK, what am I doing wrong?

    Trying to upload a picture (.jpg) from my computer to a thread. I have uploaded pics a hundred times....

    1) Click the "Insert Image" icon.
    2) Click "From Computer".
    3) Click "Choose File"
    4) Opens up File Search, click on my picture.
    5) Click "Open"
    6) Click "Upload File"
    7) and nothin'. The box just sits there.

    Help, please.

    Check the your Flash is updated and that it's enabled in whatever browser you're doing. The image uploaded here is definitely a pain.

    If you have concerns about enabling Flash in your browser try this alternate method:

    Click on "Go Advanced"
    Scroll down and click "Manage attachments"
    Proceed through the add files/choose file/open/upload/check thumbnail/insert inline/done dialogue.

    Clunky ? Absolutely!
    Works ? For me!

    Thank you. The "Manage Attachments" worked.

    You're welcome. The Insert Image button has been flakey for some time. IDK if the Flash browser plugin is to blame but the Manage Attachment method seems to be a viable alternative. Some folks avoid the drama altogether and use links to a photo hosting site like Flickr.
