I have a screen shot that would be helpful for a question I have. I couldn't figure out how to attach it. Most of the other forums I follow have an Upload or Attachment button below the messgae box.

 

Are attachments allowed? If so, how do I upload them?

 

Thanks

Not in the AII forum.  You'll need to upload the file to a hosting site such as Photobucket.  Then you'll need to use the image tags to put the image in the post.
 
Example:

[img=http://s107.photobucket.com/user/sryding/media/anothermomentintimeaquarium.gif]

Will then appear like this:

OK, thanks. I should have thought of that.

I uploaded the image file (jpg) to DropBox. Here's the link:

 

https://www.dropbox.com/sh/rspf3s6ns518b0y/AADrwft_1GE49MNfobJvesxQa

 

But when I clicked on the Image button and pasted that URL into the field, I got this error message:

You are not allowed to use that image extension on this community.

It needs to end in a valid image extension.

To add to this, you can right click and select Copy Image URL which you can then use (on most pictures). In dropbox, just need to click on the picture to get a link you can use.
