You caught me doing a demo!
When you open the "reply" box, there is an Attachment line directly under the Subject line. You can use the "Browse" button to locate and select a file on your computer. The file will be uploaded and a link to it will be placed in your message. The only downside is that you cannot preview your message without losing the attachment. Otherwise, it works well as long as the attachment is about 1,000 KB or less.
Duh! I never noticed the (obvious) attachment function -- there's always something undiscovered on these boards! I found navigation confusing at first, but now I can get around. I try to follow the posts of others to pick up clues.
One of the most confusing things is not being able to "jump" to a new page in a thread just by hitting "next" or "previous." At times I've missed multiple thread pages. Also, the font size is often a little small for "mature" eyes.
(I guess this should be posted in "site improvements.")

Threads with multiple pages have an area in the top (black) bar that should allow ease of movement through the pages. Just click the double arrow >> to move to the next page or the << to move back.
You can adjust the size of the font by adjusting your screen size. For example, if you use Internet Explorer, there is a screen size control in the bottom right corner. If it now shows 100%, try increasing it to 125%. You can click the blue plus sign in the little magnifying glass to increase it or click the pull-down arrow on the right.
For some reason (using both IE and Google Chrome), the ">>" for next page appears black on a dark grey background (sometimes!):
I looked at the screen capture in my previous post and saw the ">>" in white which I hadn't noticed before. Going to pages with multiple threads several different times resulted in sometimes the ">>" appearing white and sometimes black.
Diane, you were correct that it was there -- but, I couldn't see it!
