Moving Image from Desktop to PM
« on: September 02, 2020, 09:39:07 am »
Is there any way to send an image/file to someone through a PM from my desktop without having to post it through the Wiki or some image storage site.?  I am not so technologically minded. Just wondering about privacy issues.

No, that's not possible. It needs to be inserted into a PM or post from a URL. Either on the wiki or some other storage site.

I don't think you can insert it into a pm like you would on normal email. That is what I was trying to do. Why not?

BTW what are the insert email and insert FTP links for?

The why not will need to be answered by someone on staff.

But you are right. To have an image put into a PM or a forum post, it has to be linked from a URL either on the Wiki or another hosting site.

The insert email and FTP buttons put code around the URL or email address to make them clickable.
