hello, modar : ) quick question Can't Post

 
i tried to attach a word doc to my post...

here

i used "preview" and it looked like the doc was indeed attached to my post (a little document icon appeared and everything). but when i posted, no doc.

looking for divine guidance.


many thanks and cheers --

aka. fili orc-enshield
+++++++++++++++++++
the scene, as i understand it, is exceptionally well-written. fili (in sort of a callback to the scene with the eagles), calls out "thorRIIIIIIN!!!" just as he sees the pale orc veer in for the kill. he picks up the severed arm of an orc which is lying on the ground, swings it up in desperation, effectively blocking the pale orc's blow. and thus, forever after, fili is known as "fili orc-enshield."

this earns him deep respect from his hard-to-please uncle. as well as a hug. kili wipes his boots on the pale orc's glory box. -- maciliel telpemairo

I think Altaira is saying the process is working for her... [In reply to] Can't Post

as she attached her own document to her ow post...

not that trying to see Maciliel's attachment is working for her.

Odd [In reply to] Can't Post

..that you can't get it to work. are you following the tips in the FAQ (below)?

If you just want to upload something and leave it as an attachment, follow the steps in red below. It shouldn't matter if you have the file open, but you might want to close it and try again. Also, make sure it's 45k or smaller. It shouldn't matter what internet browser you're using but, just in case, which one are you using (i.e. Internet explorer, Chrome, Firefox)?

2.21 How do I upload an attachment? First of all, please note that all attachments must be 45 kilobytes or smaller. If you use the Advanced Editor: click on [Browse] next to the “Attachment” box at the far bottom left of the “Reply” box. Find the file on your PC that you want to attach to your post and click on the [Open] button. Click on [Upload Attachment]. You can stop there if you want to just leave the file as an attachment. If it is a picture that you want to insert into your post, place your cursor in your post where you want to insert the picture. Click on the picture icon in the Advanced Editor menu and instead of inserting a URL address from the internet, check the “Inline Image” option. Select the inline image you want to insert, hit the “Submit” button and voila! Your image will be inserted at the point you specified. If you use the Basic Editor: follow the steps above to upload an attachment. If it is a picture you want to insert into your post, type the following: [inline filename.fileformat] Hint: you can copy the filename and file format directly from the attachment name at the bottom of the “Reply” box. Remember, if you’re using the Basic Editor, you can also click on the [Get Markup Help] link at the top of the “Reply” box (See 2.9 above).

For Mac users: on some Macs, the file cannot be seen if there are any spaces in the filename; for example, if you have a filename "My Picture", you need to rename it "MyPicture". Use Basic Editor to upload the file: click on "Browse" to locate it, check the "Inline" box, then click "Upload attachment". Then insert the picture into your post using [Inline filename.fileformat].

i have tried... [In reply to] Can't Post

i have tried...

1. clicking "choose file" next to the "attachment" title, browsing to the file, clicking it. this causes an icon of it to appear in the editing screen, underneath the text window, but when i go to actually post, the attachment disappears

2. clicking on "inline" and "upload attachment" does not work, either

3. highlighting the doc and trying to paste it in the editing window does not work

4. also tried "editing" the post, and adding the attachment at that point. no dice.



am using chrome on a windows laptop.

cheers : )

probably not reading the faq or altaira's post closely enough.... but...

1. i hit "choose file" (next to the "attachment" label
2. i hit "upload attachment" to the right of that

+that+ worked.

what was tripping me up was the icon. when the icon appeared after i hit "choose file" it seemed like no further action for attaching the doc to the post was needed (but, not so!).

apologies if i did not read closely enough, and many thanks for all the support. : )
