Q1. How do I add an attachment?
You can add attachments when you add a new post. Click on Additional Options when you post (located after the text box). Then, when you click the Browse button, the standard Open Dialogue window for your computer will open. Browse to the file you want to attach, select it and click OK, Open or doubleclick according to your liking and/or the correct procedure for your computer. If you choose to add a comment in the File Comment field this comment will be used as a link to the attached file. If you haven't added a comment the filename itself will be used to link to the attachment. You are allowed to upload multiple attachments by following the same procedure as described above until you reach the max allowed number of attachments for each post.

The board administrator sets a max limit for file size, file extensions and other things for attachments on the board. Be aware that it is your responsibility that your attachments comply with the board's terms of usage  because they may be deleted without warning.
