how does one post photos in PMs
« on: January 16, 2021, 12:32:25 PM »
I'm trying to put some photos in a PM to a member.     I have no "attachment and other options" at the bottom and am lost.  Is there an alternate way?

I do it the same way I do on the forum, but I host from photobucket.

Only way to do it is via a photo hosting site with a url. Photobucket etc.  If you’re using Tapatalk you can do it too, as Tapatalk works as it’s own photo hosting site.
Attachments like most people use on here do not work.

then why even bother with PMs if pictures can't be attached.

Feel free to redesign the software any time you want!

LOL.

Unfortunately Dale buys the software to run the forum. There are some changes that can be made here and there but kind of “is what it is” mostly. Kind of like the “like” button a lot of people want. If it was doable, it would’ve been done.
