Uploading images has been a pain for a while now lol

 Ok first of all , make sure the picture you wish to upload has a file name you are sure you will recognise again , because you are going to have to look for it in a list later on in the process ( just makes it easier Smile )

 then you need to get into the Full Reply Editor by pressing the  button 

Ok now you should see a Reply box that has several more functions on it than the standard one on the topic page .

 Now to add a pic , click on the "Insert Image" button"  
This will bring up the "Image Properties " box

Ok to upload an image from your PC click the browse button (It will open the standard file selection box your PC operating system uses ) and locate the image you wish to share and click on it to select it then press the "open " tab , and the selection box should disappear and you should see the filepath to the image you selected now written in the area to the left of the browse button , and there will now be an "UPLOAD " button on the Image Properties Box you opened up earlier .

Click the upload button .... a new overlay will pop up stating to "Please be patient while the is being uploaded to the server " ..... You can click the "OK " button on this .

Now here is where the bug with uploading pics starts LOL
you will get the Insert Image box disappearing and there will be a message

"There was an error on this page. The server administrator has been notified and will investigate."

 And you get all angry and frustrated , because you think the system has crashed on you  LOL

All is not lost however , because the image DID upload , it is just pretending it didnt !!!

So you open up the Again , and sure enough the file you tried to upload , should be in the information field under the "file name" in the box which opens up

 Now this was why I said it was important to have a filename for you picture you can remember easily , because you look for it in the file name area and left clicking will select it and automatically load the file into the preview pane  Clap

You can then click OK on the Insert Image window and Voila! your pic should now be on your post !

Keep the photos below 200k
When the photo appears in your dialogue box you can resize it by dragging in the corners. It also seems that Firefox is the most stable browser when uploading photos,

Had to change user name to "__wolw" due to software upgrade. You can't PM me on this username as I can't log in to it.
