    Says it can't upload photo to forums, and to check my internet connection. To which I do have. Any ideas? This has been going on since getting the S8 plus, and continues on the Note 8.

    I moved your thread to the Android Central Apps forum for better visibility.

    Do you have the same problem with both options to post a pic?

    Haha! Glad it helped, mate! Yeah, I remember some people reporting problems with the other option. No idea why this should affect different phones in different ways.

    Both options have been working fine for me on two different phones (both Moto) with MM and Nougat. Not sure why this affects only some models. Maybe something with permissions or the stock gallery app?

    I was posting using the AC Forums on my Note 8 without issue using the image icon. Then I factory reset and now Im having the same problems as the OP. It's happened before but I cant remember what fixed it.

    What happens when you tap on the image icon? Can you select a pic or you get an error before that? If you get the pic selection screen tap on 'more' top right and select a different app (Photos, Gallery ...). See if it makes any difference.

    I can't post photos, links, or attachments from the app. I literally don't have the buttons show up to do it, I can only do a quick reply with text and no access to copy/paste either.

    Makes Android Central an annoying experience some days .

    That's strange. Are you using the Android Central Forums app?

    I'm reviving the OP's tread, hoping that someone can help me with the same thing.

    I can't find any way to attach files via a computer browser, Android Central app, or AC Forums app. –Well actually, I was finally able to upload a file via AC Forums app, but only after it prompted me to move to Chrome to do it.

    When I downloaded the AC Forums app, via the suggestion in this thread, I found that a member had messenged me a week ago but I had never received a notification–and I didn't see one in the web browser interface.

    Am I missing something here? I can't imagine that it's so difficult to attach files or receive messages, and I'm actually pretty tech savvy. Any help is very appreciated. Thanks!

    Sorry for the delay. That's strange. Have you already tried the different icons to attach a file from ACF? Do you get any specific error when you try? Just in case, check that the storage permission is enabled for the app.

    Strange. Sorry about the question, but just to be sure. Are you opening the reply window using the little arrow bottom left or are you using the 'quick reply'? No attachment options yet?

    Hi @Javier P. No, the icons aren't available to me in either the AC or AC Forums apps, or in a web browser. –I have all of the other icons in the web browser window–text editing, super/sub-script, Twitter, hashtag, emojis, etc., but not paperclip.

    Update 60 seconds later . . . I just saw the photo and realized that I was was not clicking on the circled up arrow. This was not intuitive to me. Thanks! Any idea why I don't have a paperclip when replying in my browser.

    Glad it helped, mate! Yeah, it's not very intuitive and you need to open than reply window to get the extra options.

    About the browser. As far as I know this option is not available on the mobile site and you need the full desktop view (from phone or computer) to attach files on the forums.

    It's the computer browser that I was talking about. Sorry I didn't clarify that.

    Ironically, the AC Forums app led me to a Chrome browser tab to post the only attachment that I've posted so far. I don't know why it led me to Chrome, but I was definitely able to (finally) do it there.
