View Full Version : Need Assistance from the Computer Literate

05-16-2001, 08:36 PM
I have a photo that was e-mailed to me that I'd like to post. I've never done this, and can't figure out how to do it.

Tim, if it's a photo that's only on your computer (not on the internet anywhere else...) than you'll need to attach the file to a message (that's an option at the bottom of the posting screen just above the submit buttons). What you'll need to do is save the image from your e-mail to your hard drive and then use the Browse feature to find it on your drive and then attach it.

If, on the other hand it's online somewhere, then just attach it like any other pic (i.e. using the [ img ] commands).

I'm not exactly uber-literate with computers, but I hope that helps... :)

I tried that but it didn't work. I saved the photo to my desktop.

I'll try again.

Sounds like you're doing it right and t should work, unless there's a problem with the site. I attached a photo a day or two ago from off of my desktop without any trouble.

Trying again (getting really annoyed now).

Once again....

Oh well. Either something's wrong or I'm an idiot, although it seems like a rather simple process. I'm clicking on the browse button and selecting the file from my desktop. But it's not showing up. Grrrrr.....

I wouldn't worry about it. Probably just a bug left over from Kyle T's work last night. Should be okay after he gets finished...

Yeah, I'm not going to lose any sleep over it. The photo was just one of me, anyway, in all my fat, Bronco-hating glory. Kyle may fix the board tomorrow and the damn thing may explode all over the thread... admittedly not a pretty sight.

Anyway, speaking of sleep, I'd better go get some. Closing on new house TOMORROW - have to get up extra early to be out in the burbs on time. Normally I hate getting up early, but I'm pretty jazzed about this time.

test again.

OK... fixed it... I had the MAX file size set to zero and it was screwing it all up and NOT giving the standard warning... it is set at 100k now and should warn if a file is too big.

Okay, let's try it again.

Excellent! Now you all know exactly what kind of a maniac you're dealing with here! :D

Thanks for fixing the problem, Kyle.
