attaching pics

I have been trying to download some pics to a post and not having any luck. I have tried clicking on the attachment icon and nothing happens. I was expecting the "browse" window to open but nothing happens. Same with the "insert image" function. I tried copy/paste also with no luck. I'm pretty sure that I have had success before.
Any help is appreciated.
Thanks

... make sure that your web browser allows 'pop up windows' to occur from this site.

sometimes the 'switch' is for all sites, sometimes the switch is site-specific

Yup give that a try let us know if that worked

If that doesn't we'll continue to troubleshoot this.

I attached this picture by going to the "Quick Reply" area at the bottom of the page and typing this message. I then opened Windows Explorer and navigated to the picture, clicked on it and dragged it to the box marked "Drag Files Here to Attach". When the upload was complete I clicked "Post Quick Reply" at the bottom.

I have had problems with the attach icon before, but this method always works, so it is what I always do now.

Problem solved! I realized that on this site my computer displays a streamer on the bottom of the screen saying "only secure content is displayed" with an option to click on "show all content". When I click on that option it allows me to down load pics and post them. It is probably a setting in my Norton security settings but it is funny that this forum is the only one affected by it.
While we are talking about weird stuff, I also can't use the "Quick Reply" option to post, I have to go to the Go Advanced page to do that.

Glad you got the image issue figured out. The quick reply issue sounds like a corrupt cookie. Try giving your cookies and cache for the site a clear.
