Am I missing something or is there no way to send pics when having a PM conversation?

Only way I have found is to upload them to the mule first.

Then copy the link into the little pic box like in the regular faarum...


Like this.



sorry, sent a pm with this pic....

I thought there would be an easier way like how I currently can upload from my phone. This way is like the old photobucket way of pasting a link. good to know though. Thanks!

Yeah, it's not ideal, but it is a workaround...

I hit that snag right after the last upgrade...

We also lost the media button that used to let us directly paste our media pics into a thread without all the copypasta song and dance we have to do now.... :mad2:

You can have the pic on your desktop, hit the "attach files" button under and left of the post box, find the pick on your desktop and select it. Then choose full size or thumbnail.

easy as pie.

Except in our editors there is no attach file button.


From Conversation editor.....

And the upload feature is also missing from the image button!
Only a web link is offered, no upload.

There may be in yours as an admin feature, but not in ours..

I wouldn't have asked if it was that simple... :laugh2:

Right, that's all we can do as it won't take anything but a URL.....
A minor inconvenience at best.

Some forum sites don't do much to restrict content, even allowing much larger file sizes. MLP is what it is. :dunno:

I will ask the admin about including an attach button.

Can you guys drag and drop pictures from your desktop?

It’s so easy to attach pics direct from your phone in posts but not in PM’s.
