Why can't I post an image or photo any longer?

I used to be able to attatch a photo or image.

Now it is just a link, for the person who asked the question, to click on, to open.

And they might not have the proper program on their system to see the photo.
Thanks.

Once the image is uploaded you should see an option to "embed" which will display the image in the post.

correct, but you need to use the Insert Image icon on the top of the text box to get that choice.

Glad to hear you got it working.

Interesting about your toolbar, but using that is the only way I could get a pic to show up after the site upgrade.

Yes, but does everyone who wants to see the photo I post, have a program that will open the photo?

coral47:
I can not use that tool bar with IE 9.0. None of it can be clicked on. I can not view any comments using IE 9.0 because there is no scroll bar. I can not remove a zone or adjust the point slider using IE. The moderators are trying to work with Microsoft on the compatibility issues. Since I get e-mail notices from EE in my Outlook Express. I have to go to FF, and view the comments that way. Clicking on the link in OE gets me nothing but the question. With no scroll bar I can not view any comments.
Until the issues are repaired, I can not properly ask or view any questions on EE using IE.

I dont think they need a seperate program to open the picture you post.
It depends on the format of the picture and it will look if that format is supported on there machine.

>> I can not ...... with IE 9.0

That sounds like a real pita.    : /

I hope they figure it out soon.
