when you write your post that you want to attach pictures to there are icons above text box one is a photo with a disk infront click on that a pop up box will open offering options (browse on your pc laptop etc) to get pics from once you have picked the pic you want open that and then you will get three codes and each will have a copy box next to it and upload underneath simply copy middle box code using your computer rather than copy button paste code in text box and post voila pictures

Dear Admin Types

Just tried to post a reply to the topic on collapsible kettles.

Obviously posted in that section before, but this time it told me that only admin could post.

Tried to look at the bit on recommending sites. it allowed me to open a reply box there.

Tried somewhere else and again replays were admin only. ( blast can't remember which section)

Obviously able to post here. Someone been playing with settings?

Kevin.

I will have a look.

It was similar for technical and servicing. "For Informative Dandy Info" (Can we please have a "Non Informative Dandy Info"

section soon: Dandies Come In Different Colours. You Need A Towbar To Pull A Dandy. etc) I see it only offers the option of New

Topics and no option to reply.

Kevin.

I'm not sure if this is a question or not really, but here goes.

I used to get the quote marks in yellow when there was a new post in a section, today generally I haven't, I first though there was not many new posts, then I noticed the dates and times and realised there were. Any ideas on what I've done to stop them please?

I used to get that also, now it only seems to be on some and not on all. I'm not aware that I've pressed anything, who knows what I've done.

Perhaps I'll turn it off and back on again, lol.

I must admit there are times when it doesn't hightlight the new posts but i think that's if i've kept the page open but been looking on another site if that makes sense

Even when I refresh, the marks aren't there but the times of the post are recent and I don't recall reading them, perhaps I have a clone beating me too it, lol.

I'll keep checking and double checking in case it's me.
