...in easy talk. There's been a few peeps asking how to post pictures on this forum so here goes in easy talk.1. You need to have the picture(s) you want to post on your puter somewhere, either in a folder or just on your desktop.2. Write out in the message box what you want to say and when you have finished click the 'Add Attachment' box at the bottom and then click 'Post'.3. You will then be directed to the Attachments page.4. Click 'Browse' and then another box should open on the screen.5. Click 'Browse' in the new box and another box opens.6. Find your picture in the last box, click on the picture you want to put on SL. Then click 'Open', then click 'Next'.7. The pic you want should now be seen in the box. If it is OK click 'Finish'.8. The box should close, then click on 'Continue', and your pic should be posted on Secret Leeds.Happy Posting, any questions just ask.

Chris - there already is a simple how-to in Tech Support, the more the merrier though of course different wording suits different people - so for completeness, could I suggest you also post yours in there as well as here - you never know where people will look and you know what 'search' is like.http://www.secretleeds.co.uk/forum/Mess ... ID=137It's worth adding that pictures refuse to upload if you are using Firefox and it doesn't sound as though this will be addressed. The other things to remember is the size limit - anthing bigger than 1 Meg will be rejected and the file type - needs to be jpg

Some members are reporting problems again. I've uploaded (and removed) several test pics this morning, all of which have worked.The steps above work however, after the recent technical glitch, you now receive an error message when finalising the upload. Presseing the back button as needed and refreshing will take you back to the main screen and pictures will appear, usually now adays as a red cross icon clicking on which, should open the picture.Browsers other than Internet Expolrer have always been erratic in their allowing of uploads - some never having worked. Remember file size is restricted too.If anyone continues to have prolems - please note it in this thread.
