cannot attach pictures to posts
« on: November 24, 2015, 04:27:08 PM »
"The attachments upload directory is not writable. Your attachment or avatar cannot be saved."
I am getting this problem every time I try to add a photo to AARs for the last couple days. Also, it seems the method of data entry for posts has changed, I liked the old one better. While I doubt the second issue will merit being addressed, the first should probably get a look. It also has the annoying tendency to delete everything I wrote in the body of the post when this happens, I think someone turned on Shark-C for the forums.
I tried attaching a photo to this post just to get the exact wording of the error message, I got my exact wording; this means it's not specific to that subforum.
I use FireFox on windows.
I have not tried linking pictures inside posts as that requires more technical work than I have (thus far) been willing to do.
