    Default Attaching files to Private Messages or replies to PMs



    I'm asking whether any kind soul could instruct me how to send a file(s) as an attachment with a private message or a reply to a private message?

    If there is an article in a FAQ or Help Manual that I'm missing, perhaps it would quicker and more convenient for you to link me to that for a bit of self-help here.

    It seems easy enough to do this when posting or replying to posts in threads.

    With thanks.

    If you hit the "reply to private message" icon, a window will pop up for your reply. Once you are in the reply window, click on the "camera" icon and a new window will pop up where you can select the files that you would like to attach. The camera icon is located between the insert image and insert video icons. It is the one that shows nothing when you hover over it. It sounds confusing but if you like, you can PM me and we will see if we can get it to work.
    This used to be a great place to hang out but now it is not safe here anymore.

    Thanks Scott, see PM in a failed attempt to do what you suggest.

    "Attachments" are not part of the PM function.
