Okay as part of the new Tapatalk app, thought I would start a new topic.

How is this achieved?

1) go to the forum subsection of choice. In this case
--> Announcements -----> Messages for all Guests & Members

2) when in that subsection, in my iPhone version, there is an icon which looks like an arrow out of a box in the upper right corner of the screen. That brings up a menu. Choose 'New Topic' and post away!


3) to upload a picture, when posting, there is a 'Insert' button in the upper right part of screen.

When uploading, I get a message that the image will be uploaded to a tapatalk server and that the forum admin needs to allow this for the upload to work.

So, let's see if my test image works. Apologies, no smoking images yet as I am still a newbie with smoking

Excellent! Looks like it's working without a hitch.

Thanks for the instructions on inserting a picture..

Thanks for the info.  I think I will take my phone in to have it looked at? When I touch the post I'm not able to reply & when I touch the box with the arrow icon it only says refresh,facebook, or cancel? No "new topic"

Can't wait to get this figured out though.
