I also use an iPad to post. When posting a URL using the full editor and the globe Icon, I need to remove the http:// when I paste the website in otherwise it contains two copy of the http://. Once removed it works perfectly. Here is a screenshot of the issue.

I am not trying to be obtuse but this discussion wears me out. But as Baleagle said is what I have been using for years and I have cleared the htto//beforehand. I have been able to post anywhere I choose.

Here's the way I do it.

Put my picture/s on my desktop.

Start a thread or open the "quick reply" to an existing thread.

Click on the "use full Editor" button.

Click on the "attachment manager" next to the paper clip.

Split my screen so I can have the Desktop and the Stovebolt page open together.

Move pictures from the desktop to the Stovebolt page via Drag and drop.

Click "done" when done.

The "total files:" should show the number of pictures you loaded next to the "attachment manager" link.

Preview you post so your happy with it. Note, your pictures will not show up when "previewing" your post.

Post Reply.

I can't help if pictures/files are to big, that's above my pay

Hope this helps...

We b OLD,
If you’re logged in and click on “Use Full Editor” near bottom of thread, you should see the “Attachment Manager” to add pictures. See Screen dump attached.

So here's a screen capture video I put together for posting photos with captions. Just follow the pointer.

If you're smart enough to take it apart, you darn well better be smart enough to put it back together.

Nice video. Just remember that it won't let you upload images that are over about 3 mb. One trick to reduce them is to mail the image to yourself then save it. The emailed picture will now be small enough to upload.

Good call on that. We've had a number of people who have had a problem uploading the images.

Another nice thing about emailing to yourself, you can change the file name before it goes into file manager. I move it to the Desktop and rename the file there. From there, I move it to the Attachment Manager.

That's a good choice for Microsoft Windows based systems but I don't believe it's compatible with computers and phones that use other operating systems such as Android (Google, Samsung for example) and IOS (Apple). That is why I suggested using email as a more universal solutions.

Lots of choices out there....
