    How can I add photos to a post?

    It says I can't add attachments . How can I change that? LMK, Aaron
    Just a set builder for the most part. If you can't help me on sets I can always use Oscar Tavaras, Michael Wacha cards. Also been picking up some Bob Gibson, Lou Brock, and Ozzie GU and Autos. Thanks for the help and GO Cards!!

    I just added an image to see if there is a problem. I guess it depends on what you are using I used to to photo bucket , now I use Imgur and it works great.

    Also do you use a scanner?

    I scan the cards onto my computer picture file. My posting permissions down below says that I can't add attatchments and I don't know how to change that.

    This is what I do. I scan my cards to my desk top. My original screen is reduced so I can see when the pics are on my desk top.
    Not sure if you can just drag them over or not. But I would join Imgur.com. It's very easy to do. You can build albums if you
    want and it is free. When I sign into it I pull up the album I want and then just drag the scan into it. When I want to copy and paste it
    I click on the pic and you get a pop up of the image. It gives you 4 choices of what you want to copy. You use the one that allow you
    to repost the image onto a forum like the Bench.

    I think you have to have a "host" site like Picasa, Imgur, or Google in order to add the pictures to these posts. Once you have your picture(s) there, then you can transfer them here.

    You would need a host server if you don't have a server yourself........I'm sure the ones mentioned above would work fine for you; plus, it probably doesn't cost anything........Once you have a host, you would enter the site name where it's located with this HTML code........

    [IMG] [/IMG]

    The part in the middle of the code is what your host would be..........http://www.thebenchtrading.com...........Basically providing a link.........Mike

    OK, I added IMGUR and downloaded some scans. But, The Bench down at the bottom of this page under Posting Permissions says You may not post attachments. How can I change that?

    How do I attach a file to a post?

    To attach a file to your post, you need to be using the main 'New Post' or 'New Thread' page and not 'Quick Reply'. To use the main 'New Post' page, click the 'Post Reply' button in the relevant thread.

    On this page, below the message box, you will find a button labelled 'Manage Attachments'. Clicking this button will open a new window for uploading attachments. You can upload an attachment either from your computer or from another URL by using the appropriate box on this page. Alternatively you can click the Attachment Icon to open this page.

    To upload a file from your computer, click the 'Browse' button and locate the file. To upload a file from another URL, enter the full URL for the file in the second box on this page. Once you have completed one of the boxes, click 'Upload'.

    Once the upload is completed the file name will appear below the input boxes in this window. You can then close the window to return to the new post screen.

    What files types can I use? How large can attachments be?

    In the attachment window you will find a list of the allowed file types and their maximum sizes. Files that are larger than these sizes will be rejected. There may also be an overall quota limit to the number of attachments you can post to the board.

    How do I add an image to a post?

    If you have uploaded an image as an attachment, you can click the arrow next to the 'Attachment Icon' and select it from the list. This will be inserted into your post and can be located where you want it displayed.

    To include an image that is not uploaded as an attachment and is located on another website, you can do so by copying the full URL to the image, (not the page on which the image is located), and either pressing the 'Insert Image' icon or by typing [img] before the URL and [/img] after it, ensuring that you do not have any spaces before or after the URL of the image. You can insert pictures from your albums (?) in this way too.

    You do unless you have one of your own.........I've carved out a little from Go Daddy for my small business..........Always hated, and still do, all the pop up ads that run on the free sites.........I know they need to make money too, but still it's annoying............
