IT'S CRAZY THAT THIS FORUM WILL NOT ALLOW PHOTO ATTACHEMENTS.

The [ img ]  tag works as you would expect, the image file just needs to be hosted somewhere.

Why do you say that we are alone, not knowing how to attach an image?

probably because there is no information or interaction from the CWP team, and 3 of the most active members posted on this thread.

I'm just here to help. Literally. I just want to contribute back to the community and offer whatever shared experience I can. I mostly use this forum as personal documentation for what I've discovered while setting up my several CWP servers. That way I can refer back to my own posts as I set up more servers. Not to mention gleaning from others' solutions and experiences, and occasionally tapping into advice from the devs/staff that frequent the forum. This is a valuable resource and I hope to keep up interest in it and offer free support to anyone coming with questions I may be able to answer.

My greatest concern with the forum is not about image attachments or custom avatars -- it's more that the forum software is years out of date and subject to security vulnerabilities. I wanted to put out the offer to the staff if they need any help upgrading to the latest Simple Machines release, I would be glad to contribute. (If even to fork a copy of the current forum and do a testbed upgrade to ensure that an upgrade to current levels would go smoothly, I could offer that.)

Embedding a url link IS NOT THE SAME AS UPLOADING A FILE.

No, it's not the same. It's called a workaround.

It's probably a conscious choice of the devs because image files can be a vector for security exploits -- and lord knows this forum software is vulnerable, being so far out of date!

Agree that this forum software is a corpse from a decade ago...like everything else
