I was having a private message conversation with another user and needed to include an image, but couldn't upload the image as an attachment, at least not that I can see. We can include attachments in messages, but only if they've been uploaded in a topic post. I found that I could begin to post a reply to a topic and upload the attachment from there, then cancel the post before actually posting anything, and then attach that image to the private message, but a way to upload directly through the messaging window would be helpful.


Actually, I don't even see the uploader down below this editor. I know I've attached images both to replys and to new topics. Under what circumstances does it show up?

The Messenger and forum post parts of the forum code are separate and this would require trying to graft the two together. There's nothing inbuilt that I can turn on or off for this.

The little critters of nature, they don't know that they're ugly. That's very funny, a fly marrying a bumble bee. I told you I'd shoot, but you didn't believe me. Why didn't you believe me?
