Attachments, How to?

I'm not good with technicals. A friend sent me a funny attachment, I want to post it on the board but have no idea how to do it. I downloaded it so that I could view it but now what do I do?

Re: Attachments, How to?

Hi

When you post your reply, scroll down to the manage attachments box and click there. A box will pop up and you can click on the browse button then select which file your attachment is in. After locating click on open and it details will appear in box next to "browse" button. Press upload and it should do it. Hope that works......I'm another one who's not brill with the technical side either

Re: Attachments, How to?

Geez - I am such a loser. From what you said it should work the same way as a picture - I know how to do that.

When I click on browse I find the attachment, I click on browse but then for some reason it's not attached.

On her e-mail to me it says MB 3.8 - whatever that means

Then the attachment feature doesn't work because the file is too big. Here are some tips how to reduce the size:

Help uploading/embedding photos

I hope I don't quote any numbers that are specific for moderator accounts, but the allowed file size is 0.48 MB = 480 KB for the most important picture format.

Re: Attachments, How to?

Well I'm not having fun with this: I downloaded the resizer but it has "known compatibility issues" with my version of windows. I also have difficulty with pdf files.

I think I'll make hubby take a look at it later.

My point was aimed at "they/we don't let you derail threads" comment . Lets be honest: this forum need the contributors more than most of the contributors need the forum.

Re: Attachments, How to?

For really big files you can always use a hosting service like rapidshare.com and post the link. But that's less convenient for the viewers.

Re: Attachments, How to?

You can upload files up to 200 MB on Rapidshare. In other words, enough for most videos out there.

Youtube aside, you can also directly embed videos from some other websites like Metacafe: complete list

It's technically not possible to embed videos from your mailbox.
