3) Below "Attach:" is a white box, then a button that says "Choose File". . .click Choose File.

of the allowed file types:

.Doc .Mpg .txt .zip and .xls will appear at the bottom of the post as an attached file
.gif .jpg and .png will appear in the post as an image, at the bottom of the post.

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.
