What happened to the paper clip?

How come I can't post pics in private msg? No "paper clip" is there to upload attachments. Also it seems to be missing from the thread msg reply in advanced but not always. Sometimes it is there, sometimes not. Any idea? Was I a bad boy and did not know it? Thanks.

The "paper clip" is not part of the PM system (don't ask me why that is. Its a limitation of the PM system). You can still attach pics using a URL via the "mountain" icon if you can first save the picture onto a photo sharing site.

As for the other, do you have any screen shots showing the lack of the clip in Advanced mode?

I suggest you use the Contact Us button at the bottom of the site and inform the help desk directly. They would like to know what system (iPad, PC, Mac) and what browser and version.

You can NOT attach (paper clip) anything in a PM (though you CAN insert a link).
It is a feature of the PM system software.

You can only attach in a post so attachments can be Moderated.
Ask the member you are PM'ing to use email instead or start a thread in "Off Topic" to send your file.

As to the forum area, it may be you are doing an edit. Edits default to "Simple" interface and you must click on the advanced button to get the paper clip option.

You can also try to delete your browsers cache.
