    I can't seem to add attachments to threads, as images it seems.

    I can provide the URL for an image, but not upload an image to include in a new thread or reply.

    What settings should I check?

    You haven't clarified which error you receive, if any.

    Check the node, user group and user permissions for Upload attachments to posts.

    Also check Options -> Attachments.

    What browser ?
    Ipad ?
    Have you tried other browsers ?
    Have you rebooted ?

    I don't recieve an error, I only get presented with the box to enter an URL for an image and don't get given a box to upload an image to a thread. I'm guessing I have just not configured it correctly yet, it's a new board. I'll check those options now. Thank you for your speedy response.

    Ahhhhhh wait there. I can add an attachment by clicking the "upload a file" option. Though when I click the 'add image' icon I only get to enter a URL.

    If I wanted to add 4 pictures to a thread, and upload the files, would I simply use the attachment option?

    Uploading files and hotlinking to images on other servers are two different things.
