To add Images:
First way:
1. Find your image, then right click copy.
2. Come to your post and put your cursor where you want the image.
3. Right click paste.
4. Your image is now in the post you have just made.
5: 10240kb is the file size that the images are set to accept, and up to 20 attachments in one post.


2nd way:
At the bottom left of the message box is "Attach Files" button. Click on that and go to your gallery on your phone or computer.
Choose your image or attachment (.pdf, etc) and upload. If it is an image it will come up as a thumbnail. In the left corner of it is the word INSERT, and on the right is a trash can.
Click on the insert. Next it will show you Thumbnail or Full. I recommend Full.

The third way to insert an image is to use the icon in the bar above:

In the drop image, it acts as the Attach Files acts.

Then you have the tab with a link on it:

Put in the link, then click on the Insert Button.

It will always come up as Full size. No thumbnail choice.

The maximum files size is 51,200kb.

Private Messages know as Conversations on this software.

1. To send a private message you can click on someone's avatar and a box about them pops up. At the bottom there is 'START CONVERSATION" on that box.
Click on that and a box will open with the TO: filled in. Then there is the Title line and a box for the message. Fill in the message box as you would make a post.
When done, just click on START CONVERSATION button.

Now your recipient/s will have a new PM/Conversation.



OR;
You can go to the little envelope at the top right of the forum page. Click on that and the Private Conversation/Message box opens. You will have to put in the member names in the Recipients line. Then the title and message.

You can add attachments to the PM's also.
