I've been looking at how to add a photo from my computer and think the info provided is out of date. Any ideas how to do it?

At the bottom of the Quick reply text box is a button called Full editor click this, in the full editor you have the smilies and BBcodes etc...

At the bottom left of the Full editor text box click on Attachments

Click on Add files a popup browser box will appear where you can browse the photos on your computer, choose 1 to 5 (max) images and click open

Click on place inline to place your image at the cursor point in the text box, do this again if you have more images, preview your post to see if your images are where you want them, click Submit to post.

Sorry, ive now updated my post above, only .jpg or .jpeg and .gif extensions are allowed for images.

The photo below is the extensions of other files that are allowed in posts, using the same way as uploading a photo, max of 5 files per post.
