    This new feature looks great to me! :)

  • We now have 3 forum themes

    Go for the default (light) theme, Shades of Grey or Shades of Blue. I just added the Blue one.

It seems I'm not able to insert an image into a PM. I've seen some other members are able to.
This is what I have in PM when clicking the Insert Image button.

As you see, no upload button. Only URL.

Is it only me?

Thanks

Thanks for trying.
It's a relief to see it's not only me.

Hmmm, now that I think of it, it might be a priveledge for certain member levels. I vaguely remember something being posted about it when the forum switched over.

I found the thread that says it's a VIP feature, so it is a member level thing. I suppose it's VIP and up.

The old method was a bit convoluted, but perhaps it still works?
You upload the image; open the image using the forum uploading dialog(s) for lack of a better term.
You grab the url when the image is displayed, and copy that to clipboard.
You paste the url into the window that Tera showed.
Or something like that...

Testing the old way of uploading a pic...
OK, I end up with a thumbnail and a url based pic. Will try to delete the thumbnail and see what happens...
- The pic remains. So maybe you can do it this way in a pm too.
- Nope, when I refresh, the pic is gone if you remove the thumbnail/attachment.

Did you try, because that reply was awful fast?
I will do it if I can and send you a pm.

No problemo!

EDIT - It disappeared from my message so I don't know if Tera got it or not. Will try again tomorrow; getting late here now.

Yes I tried it. The problem is there's no way to upload the image. So the process stops at above stage.

For the record, days and time are irrelevant during a pandemic.

Yes. I receive the photo. But sending seems to be a VIP thing.

I received the image.
So far we know VIPs and Moderators are allowed to send images via PM.
I received an image from @Gasman too. Unfortunately I don't know his rank. Is he a Moderator too?

Well that answers the question.

next question:
Where does one buy a new refrigerator during a pandemic? Mine just crapped out and I have a freezer full of meat in anticipation of the coming shortage.
