I've been actively posting to BC forums for the last several weeks (and joined years ago).

 

As of today I am no longer seeing the option to attach images nor to include them in posts anymore at the bottom of the text entry window for a post.

 

I've been using Google Chrome, but am posting this using Firefox and there's no difference.  I have already cleared cache on both browsers, completely shut down my computer and restarted, and there's been no change.

 

The ability to include screen captures in posts without having to have them hosted somewhere out there and having a URL is a major advantage as far as I'm concerned.

 

What's happened?  Or is image attaching limited to specific forums?  I seem to have those buttons present when trying to post to some forums and not for others.

Yes attachments are limited to specific forums. I'll try to find the list of which ones allow them. Also there is a finite amount of space you're allowed to use for attachments. If you exceed that limitation, you can't attach any more unless you delete some older or no longer used attachments.

EDIT: But no there has been no change with the forums that would affect the ability to attach. At least that I have been made aware of.

So it is not just me has been running into this lately. I must have never tried to attach snips before in the forums that do not support it.
