There is a 200k limit per file, so you need to use smallish, or low-rezish images, and smallish versions of the other files.

to put anything else into a post, or to put an image into the middle of a post, you need to use the buttons above the   :mellow: :huh: :lol: :rolleyes: :angry: smilies.

Note: that you need to use "reply" or start a new topic to see the "additional options" button, it doesn't appear in quick reply.

This is where the "Choose File" and "Additional Attachments" buttons are:

Hi There,

I'm a new user here but am pretty familiar with posting on boards, uploading files and pictures etc... But I'm having some real issues uploading a character sheet into a post.

When I click on the {Attachments and other options] dropdown underneath the text box all I see are the 3 tick boxes for:
Notify me of replies.
Return to this topic.
Don't use smileys.

There is no 'Browse Files' button for me to upload my sheet.

I thought it might be a browser issue, but IE is having the same problem as Firefox.  Do I need extra permissions to UL files?

Thanks!
Vai

If you don't see the attach section and the browse button, then you may have to get a few posts up before you can attach a file.

Indeed, I think you need to reach either 10 or 20 posts before you can attach files.
