If you are unsure how to attach files and images on the forums, this guide will help you.


Attaching files:

Click on either the Reply to this topic button at the top of the page or the More Reply Options button at the bottom of the page.


This will take you to the full reply editor page which has the Attach Files option.


Do note that there's a file size limit to the files you can attach. If your file is too big, you may want to upload it to a hosting site then just provide a link to the file in your post.


Posting images / screenshots:


If the file you're attempting to attach is an image, you can also upload it to image hosting sites such as Tinypic or Imgur then use the direct link to post your image to the forums.


This example uses the Imgur website.


Go to the hosting site of your choice and click on the New post button (or its equivalent).



Select an available upload option (whichever is more convenient for the image you're uploading):



Get the direct link to the file.
Note: Make sure that you select Original in sizes. Some hosting sites resize the images you upload.



Select the image icon in the forum reply box.



Paste the direct link into the URL box. A preview of your image will appear so that you can see the image you're posting.



Click on OK if you're happy with your image and it'll appear in your reply box, ready for use.
