Title: attatchment
Post by: Lisa on December 11, 2003, 20:31:56 PM
how to make an attatchment, if you have permission.....

when you make a post you will notice a box under the message box,
 says Attach:

just under that box it tells you what files you can upload to total twaddle webspace.
Allowed file types: txt,jpg,gif,pdf,png,bmp,wma,wmv,mp3

 all you have to do when making a post is click browse to point it to the file on your pc and then when you click post it will grab that file and add it to the message.

if you don't have a message and just want to post an image just put a full stop in the message box before posting.

but please don't hotlink files from here unless you have been given permission to hotlink them... we currently have plenty of bandwidth, but as the forum grows it may run out...

if you have a file which is of a different extension let me  know and i can add it to the list.
