#1 Attaching files by johnsd 09.06.2010 11:43

I want to attach a file to a posting. I have apparently uploaded the file ( an .xls) but cannot see how to get it attached to my message. Can you help with some step-by-step instructions, please?

Hi Johnsd,

if you can see the file name in your upload window, the upload was successful. Just close the window afterwards, write your message and submit the post - attachment should be attached automatically. If the upload is not working- due to unsecure file formats for example - just try to pack the file as a ZIP compressed file and upload it again. Hope that helps, cheers.

Yes Pam, that worked - many thanks. It is not obvious that completing the upload has actually attached the file and then the attachment window has to be manually closed. It would help if a button appeared that said 'file(s) attached, now return to posting screen' or some such. Clicking on the button should then cause the attachment window to close.

Hey Johnsd,

that's actually true, would be good for the usability! If you're keen, please post your suggestions into the forum: Feature requests User experience and feature requests help us getting better and to improve the software, thx.
