Hello.
When you post how do you attach links or pictures to your posts?

You attach them by finding the Attach File button on the page and clicking it. What did you think?:confused:

Do you know how to save files, and what a 'drop down menu' is? Are you sure you want to attach a file, or do you in fact want to post a link?

Snowy:

To post your email address as a link simply type it in the body of your text and the forum software automatically turns it into a link.

To attach a file when creating a new thread, go to the small box underneath where you type your message, click the cursor in it and press 'browse'...it will take you to a box which lists the contents of your computer - keep clicking until you find the file you are looking for - exactly the same as an attachment on an email.

Oops, it works!

One more question: how to attach a link from the internet?(site address?)

for e.g. i want to attach a link of this page (where we are now)?

Could you explain that all please? What's the difference between attaching a file and posting a link? What if I want to attach not the whole text but only a link of the file I have in my computer?

Could you write the order of the buttons i should press, please? for me to practise...

Snowy - internet links work exactly like the email addresses do - just type it and the link appears automatically...

Right click on it, save it to your hard disk and upload it as per the 2nd paragraph in my 1st reply...

I'm amazed you even managed to connect to the internet!!;)
