    I can't seem to figure out how to insert pictures from my computer into pm's. Anyone have any advise? Thanks in advance.

    sriley531 Buckle up, this could get rough....

    It's a PITA. The method I've just recently learned is to upload to Imgur, then selet "share links" and copy the one called "BB Code"

    You can also upload to your media album and then paste them using the "Media Gallery Embed" icon (the camera).

    What device do you use to view/post on this site?
    I only use a PC and Google Chrome or IE, I have a smart phone but it is not used for surfing the web, print is way too small for that. So what a, or my PC looks like is all I can attest to.
    I'm old and don't see too well. I have my zoom set at 175% here.

    You can find new flat screen tv in 2-3 foot sizes for under $100, and use it as a primary or secondary monitor.

    I've only ever done it from my phone (Android/Chrome) and it's no different than uploading a picture on a thread. "Click" on "Upload a File" and select the pic. Just wish you could select multiple pics (well, technically you can but it only uploads the 1st one).

    I'll have to try it on my computer.

    Nah, as you have noticed, the Private Message (conversation) stuff is basically unlimited in this software.. In the old software we did have some perks, when we switched to this in 2017, I thought those would continue, but after getting into it, there was not the ability to control that storage space in this software..

    In the old software we did allow the display of remote content for some contribution levels, but that is wide open here for everyone. just a little harder to uplink a photo in a PM..
