Hi Melly

your instructions are a little out of date :blush: since the last upgrade it's slightly different ! and I can't get your instructions to link an online image to work ? Probably me but I'll get Admin to check that out with the IT guys !!


1) Click on "Attachments" shown under the message pane
2) That will open the file on your PC where your photos are stored
3) Choose which photo you want to upload, click on 'open' on the photo file window
4) Details will then show in the filename box under the message pane - will have a green tick at the end if it's been accepted.
5) click on 'submit' (or preview if you want to check that you've got the right photo !)

please note that photos will always be added AFTER anything that you've typed in the message pane, they can't be placed "inline".

Also please check the size of photos before adding them; if they're too big they will appear absolutely huge, overwhelm the topic and throw out the formatting :shock: Ideally under 70KiB is usually OK.
Right click on view copy , followed by copy link location seems to work.

Oh dear , wrong image again ???

How inten ... careless of me ... apologies !

This area has nothing to do with caring - keep to your side of the fence please :lol: :lol:
Could have been worse , pasting over the image I was viewing beforehand ?

Change the yellow to a straight red ?

And , twice over ?

Where's that image ... back to square one ... search ... DWP boss ....

Bit difficult on the old fence front ... just ask my horse in the big one on Saturday just past !

Going ... almost forgot ... can I 'ave me ball back , missus .... ?
