Attachments to PMs
« on: August 24, 2014, 12:08:59 PM »
I just noticed I can't attach a picture or file to a PM.  Is it this computer problem here or is that not an option?

I have also experienced this (and was frustrated by it). ](*,)
I think that there was an explanation of it being a idiosyncrasy of the Simple Machines software that runs the forum.
You could upload the file to your web host, then create a link. (I am pretty sure you can do that...)

True, native SMF doesn't provide for attachements to PMs..  I've just installed a mod which does provide the capability.

Give it a try.
