The Go Advanced button appears just below the Quick Reply box.

You can also just click the button next to someone's message.

Is it possible you closed the other window where you were writing a reply? When you post an attachment, you must keep both windows open -- the Attachments floating window, and the window underneath that has the message you are posting an attached photo to.

It is referring to the ABOVE directions. Uploading a photo to Tomatoville is preferable (and easier for most people) than Linking.

If you are clicking here:

and not getting a new window, then your web browser is blocking popups.

The other method includes this instruction........

"Enter the URL to where your image is located on the Internet. You can only link to photos that are hosted (physically stored) at the site where you are linking to. You cannot link to an already linked image. "

I have no idea as what URL or where and I find no URL above my pictures.
I don't understand "hosted or physically stored" or "already linked".
You would only use the Linked method if you own your own website or online storage of photos. I'm guessing you don't.

The simplest method really is to click the Paperclip icon. If that doesn't work, then it's a computer problem (web browser is too old or blocking popups) that must be fixed first.

Here's a step-by-step pictorial guide:

It will take a few moments, up to 60 seconds, to upload the photo. You'll see little status updates at the bottom where it currently says "Done" like "Submitting to"

As you can see, I've successfully uploaded IMG_9098.jpg to Tomatoville. Now I need to insert it into the post by clicking the Paperclip again and choosing the photo.

I've typed a little message as well "Here's a photo of a tomato!"

Now I click "Submit Reply" and the photo and message are posted.
I've relaunched my gardening website -- *

*I'm not allowed to post weblinks so you'll have to copy-paste it manually.
