    Hello, I did try and search for the answer but I couldn't find it.

    I can upload attachments on threads, but I don't seem to have the option to do so via PM. Do I need to change some settings? Or is it a restriction on my profile (if so, could I please have the option?)

    Thank you!

    I don’t see a way to change a setting for that in the control panel. When I go to open a PM to you it shows an option to add a file just like when you add one to a public post:

    It is so odd, unless I’m being a bit daft I can’t see that on mine :unsure:

    No worries if it can’t be done!

    That's weird. I honestly never noticed it either way before because I've never needed to send an attachment via PM. :huh:

    I have that option (though I’ve also never used it). Might be an admins vs everyone else thing. I’ll take a look sometime in the next day.

    I have the option to upload a file to a PM. Maybe it's a forum skin/style variation? I'm using Plainsman.

    Unless I somehow became an admin and was never told.

    Never mind, I see it as an option in every forum style. Clearly I have admin powers, thanks mods, smartest thing you've ever done.

    Hmm, various technical things. Taking this convo to PM, but the upshot is, Summerteeth you should be able to attach files in a few minutes.

    Something went wrong, I no longer have admin permissions. I guess that's a sacrifice I'm willing to make so that Summerteeth can send attachments with PMs.

    Best way to fix that is to talk to Baba in Caht.

    I too have seemed to have lost my administrative privileges. What are you people doing up there? Please give me back the power to destroy all life as we know it or else.

    I am not sure exactly what I will do, but I am sure it will be long and grammatically incorrect and with many spelling errors.
