Photo posting issue-NO Upload button.

#1 Post by tom coughlin » Sat Jan 18, 2020 10:26 am

The "how to" section says;
When making a post on 356Talk, below the large white "Message body" text window and below the "Submit" button is the "Upload Attachment" area.

I am no longer getting this upload button. I've logged out and back in, didn't help. How do I get it to work ? Underneath the "Submit" button all I get is

You can either drag and drop any file into the text box, or select "Place inline" per below:

Don: Thanks, but I tried the "click on full editor" but I don't get an attachments tab. All I get is;

Cut and paste does work as you can see in my double test below, so I'm all set.

Interesting, posting options differ depending on whether it's the 1st originating post or a subsequent reply post. Now I see what yours is doing. Oh well.

When time to add a photo I just hit preview and the attachment part shows up.
