    When replying to threads I cannot seem to upload images. I have tried inserting image from computer but it will not upload, pasting from word but it will not paste and tried to add attachment- all to no avail. Anyone else having this problem? Any suggs?

    When I press on insert image another window comes up- white with a box in the middle. Two tabs exist 1) From computer 2) from URL. I select computer- browse to the file (have tried jpg and png files, which open on a host of software) but when I press the upload button nothing happens? A similar thing is happening with the attachments option- I select the file and push the add button and the timer turns but nothing ever attaches!!! I am on Windows 8- would this have something top do with it- or browser security settings. Not a boffin when it comes to such matters.

    I cannot upload from my computer.
    I have to use photobucket, this happened after forum problems, a few weeks back.
    I'm on firefox.

    I cannot upload from PC either. When I insert links to Photobucket my post is denied. I am a new member, why can't I post?

    Looks like only external links to images are allowed as I only have the URL option.

    I have the same problem - URL links only. At the bottom of this page is a box "Posting Permissions" which says that I may not post attachments.

    Strange, considering I have posted them in the past - current count 42.

    isnt there a minimum post count of 10 before someone is allowed to post pics? that would explain why some of the posters above are struggling....

    There is a minimum post count but I think there's also a few issues from when we had the server issues a while ago.

    I'll try and bring Dan's attention to it.

    And annoying me isn't.

    Dan's a busy boy you know, he doesn't just run this forum. There's about a dozen plus various web pages etc.

    That might explain why he has not replied to my email via the "contact us" link.

    However the problem is not restricted to me. It is affecting all forum members, so it should be given high priority.

    Happening to me as well - thought i just had to post more but still only getting url option - this is in IE11 (compatibility on or off) and latest Firefox

    Any news on the image uploading issue ?

    I have just realised that in posting permissions, I am not allowed to post attachments so I assume this is my problem

    Can anyone tell me why I am not allowed to post attachments ?

    You are not alone; no-one is allowed to post attachments. This has been brought to the attention of the Moderators and I have emailed the Webmaster. Unfortunately they seem very reluctant, to put it mildly, to do anything about the problem.

    Whilst I feel your frustration, may I advise caution in what you say on a public forum regarding the mods and the webmaster most of whom have a day job. The wait will be worthwhile.

    Guys somewhere in another thread croppie gave details of where to send the photos
    It was something like... uv.upload.croppie but I haven`t the time to find it today but it might be in the introduce yourself section.

    Do you think we get paid for this? None of us receive a bean.

    There is only a small number cannot post pictures.

    Check the settings on your browser's and don't be so melodramatic.
