To add an attachment, find the Upload attachment section of the posting page and click the Add files button. Once you have pressed this button a new window will pop up allowing you to browse your local computer. Navigate to the directory in which the image(s), video(s) or document(s) you wish to upload to the post are stored, select them, and click open.
You will note that a loading bar will appear under the Status heading in the Attachments upload row. You will know when the images has uploaded successfully because a green tick will replace the loading bar under the Status heading. An example of how this looks is presented in the following image.
A comment may be placed in the File comment text box. Clicking Add the file will upload and attach the file to the post. To upload multiple files, repeat the process.
To delete an attachment, find the Posted attachments section of the posting page and click the Delete file button for the desired attachment.
Attachments can be displayed within the post text by clicking the Place inline button for the desired attachment. When an attachment is placed inline, text similar to a BBCode is inserted into the post text so that it may be moved. If an attachment is not placed inline, it will be displayed at the end of the post.
Attachments are controlled by a set of restrictions, namely file size and file type.
- File Size: The maximum file size for uploaded files is set by the Administrator. Currently we have set the default to unlimited.
- File Type: The types of files allowed for upload are restricted by their file extension. The allowed extensions are set by the Administrator.
