    Re: Welcome to the upgraded forum!

    If attempting to add an attachment I don't seem to be able to change from the home folder to a sub-folder within home (eg: Pictures). Am I overlooking something?

    I have no problem.


    • Select Manage Attachments.
    • Select Add Files (top right corner).
    • Select Select Files to get the normal file selector.
    • If the last point doesn't work, select Basic Uploader.

    I'm lost, I'm so lost that I can't show you how lost I am

    Maybe I'm just too stupid to use a computer anymore.

    LOL — talk about irony!

    In your screenshot, you can see a button called "Add Files". Press it and select your file. I'm not at my computer at the moment, so I don't remember what comes next, but when I get back I'll post (unless you figure it out in the meantime).

    EDIT: I agree that the new form is not as intuitive as the old one.

    Thanks Paddy. I really am lost here ............... it's like rearranging the furniture in a blind mans house

    My brain is screaming for the torture to just end. What I want to be able to do is change to a different folder to select an attachment, but I don't seem to be able to do that.

    I've even been experiencing seizures due to these changes which is extremely unpleasant!

    I think Enhanced Attachment Uploading is enabled by default.
    Go to Quick Links > General Settings and turn it off (Its at the bottom of page.)
    Will be the same as before forum update.

    Stinkeye is correct; you can do this. Otherwise…

    Well, we better stop your seizures!

    Here is my quick guide.

    1. Select Manage Attachments. A new tab (or window) will open.

    2. You will see your previous attachments. (It doesn't show all of them.)
    3. Select Add Files.

    4. Select Select Files.

    5. Choose the file or files that you wish to upload using the standard Ubuntu file-selector.
    6. Repeat steps 4 and 5 as required.
    7. Select Upload Files.

    8. At the bottom of the screen, you will see your files.
    9. Optional: Select Insert Inline if you want thumbnails in your message (as in this post).

    10. Finally press Done, which closes the window.

    I hope that helps!

    Yeah, that seems to have helped a lot. I was originally trying to say I found the new "find all" feature:

    Thanks to both of you
