    I didnt see anywhere else where this really fit in, so Im just gonna drop it here and hope for some kind help.

    OK, so Im pretty bright, with tech stuff in general, I have full access to the OS of my Pre, I have designed and changed around themes, done hacks, installed patches.. bla bla bla..

    So it makes me scratch my aging head when it seems not intuitve to get my attachments posted the way I see it on other posts

    I CAN use the paper clip, to upload something, I CAN manage attachments and get them attached to a post..

    Like this, for an image:


    What I CANT for the life of me find, is WHERE to add the link for email attachment. The ONLY email one I see, prompts ME to put in MY email, which of course is redundant.

    Also, in that same vein, when I post a file to offer to download, like a zip file, I can get the file to show up, and ya, it will dl, but I dont see the cute lil vise grippy zip icon, like I do on other posts.

    and THIS for a zip



    Am I just losing my mind, or is there some obvious thing I am missing here.

    Thanks!

    1 vote for losing your mind.

    What are the exact steps you are taking to attatch files?

    OK here goes... so right now I am IN advanced , ya?



    I click on the paper clip, to upload , say an image I want to share and have an email link to, ok?



    I see it took the file, and now I want to attach it, and provide an email link, so I go back to the paper clip, and then the down arrow, to manage attachments.. and I see the file I just uploaded



    I select the file,
    and this is the coding I get





    and HERE is now the attachment gets posted

    WHAT am I missing here to include an email link?
    Then I would use the same basic steps to upload and share a zip file, but do not get the icon, just the name, and ya it IS downloadble, but not with the zip icon.

    Any help here?

    Use [_EMAIL="sample@email.com"_]Text to Display[_/EMAIL_] (without the _'s of course).

    Not sure what to tell you about this. It seems to work for me, icon and all.

    Ya, but doing the sample@email.com, wouldnt that just try to send it to that address, and NOT the stored address of the viewer that wants to get it?

    As for the zip, you basicaly did the steps I outlined, and got the icon?

    huh

    Perhaps I don't understand what you're trying to accomplish. What "stored address" are you talking about?

    Click paperclip. Browse for file. Select file. Upload. Close window. Submit Reply.

    Which site are you going through, TreoCentral or Pre|Central site? The only one I see is via Pre|Central. TreoCentral site does not show the send to your email for attachment link, only Pre|Central.

    Also don't use the [ATTACH][/ATTACH] pair (while it is nice to see in the post as you can type your text before and after) or else, it will just show attachment but no email link. I corrected your post above so you can see.

    There you go. You've got it this time.

    Oooooooooookkkk Mystery solved!

    You upload them with the paper clip, but for them to show up correctly, you have to manage the attatchments from below the actual post entry area

    Kinda confusing, but I thnk I see it now

    YA told ya IM NOT Dummmmmmmmmmmmm

    Im a techygeeknerd

    Well, the owner of this site is very nerdy and I think he did the programming on that for Pre|Central. So from one nerd to another, one views it as simple thing, another will say, how complex it is.

    Glad you figured it out.
