Attachments Problem

In the Creative Expressions thread in the Avatars/Graphics forum:
the Preview/Attach button isn't bringing up the Attach function, only the preview one.

I've been unable to add any new images to the thread. I've tried it using both Chrome and Puffin browsers.

HELP!

If you click on reply in a post, then "more", there is a Preview/Attach button. Click on that and then it will take you the +upload attachments button at the bottom of your preview to load your attachments.

Edit:

If you have no text in the text area and you hit the preview/attach you still don't get the option to attach. If you add [att=1] you will be able to get to the attachment page.

Something changed.

Yesterday if I hit the preview/attach button the "add attachments" button came up automatically. Now it is only happening if I add some text to the post box first (thanks sashwa) - an extra step that is unnecessary for that thread, and especially when adding to the thread using the smaller keypad of tablets and cell phones. (Not to mention older eyes....)

Justin is still playing with the site so things keep changing around here.

I also have very old eyes.

You always had to have text of some kind in the text box, or you would get the empty post warning.

Sorry for that confusion, the Preview/Attach button will work as you'd expect shortly

Yes but you still got the 'add attachments" button in spite of that.

Monday morning and I can't post an attachment. It uploads fine but when I click on Post nothing happens.
