IMPORTANT: Posting screenshots
« on: 29 May 2018, 09:16:28 »
Since the forum is becoming more popular we're get close to using up all our monthly allowance of bandwith and disc space which will lead to extra costs.  To help prevent that could I ask that all members use a third party photo storage like Imgur or PhotoBucket and then copy/paste screenshots.  Please DO NOT USE the attachment option.

Imgur is easy to use, once you set up your account you simply upload your screenshots from your PC.  Choose Images and then select the 800x600 option under Autosize.  Click on Add Images and then source your screenshot/s for uploading.



Select your image by clicking on it and then copy the BBC Messages Boards and Forums link to paste it here.



Many thanks for your co-operation.  :)

Assuming you're using SimpleMachinesForum software, a forum admin should be able to disable the ability to post attachments.
Admin -> Members Submenu -> Permissions
Navigate to the group you want to change, then Modify.
Toward the bottom, there will be a submenu about Attachments.

If you want this for every group, there's a faster way via Advanced Settings, at the bottom of the Permissions Groups List.
Select all the groups, then scroll to the bottom, use the last row to "Clear Permission" - Post Attachments

It might help to make this a software enforced situation, at least to help with people who don't read (like me)
