    You have to switch your phone to desktop view then i believe that you have to type at least 9 characters. You'll see a paperclip click on that it will pull up your gallery then you choose from your gallery up load it then follow the prompts. Here a hint the pictures you want to up load screenshot them. I don't know why but it's easier to get them to load.

    yes, the mobile version of the site is set up for simplicity and does not have the complete functionality that the desktop version does. that being said, to post pictures, you may be able to go to your "Menu" and choose "View Full site" and once you do that you may be able to upload a single image at a time from your mobile device

    you would also need to check the size and weight of the images to make sure they fit within the specifications for the site. images taken from a mobile device usually tend to be larger, at least on my mobile and that too could be preventing you from being able to upload

    Had to do a few keyword searches but finally got it figured out for android systems.
    You have to hit the 3rd button on the bottom left of the galaxy phones, you known the button never used much.
    Then select desktop view, bingo full site!
    When creating a post you will notice a series of icons at top of text box , select the paper clip icon or 'attachment' icon.
    Then select upload photo, go to gallery, select, then pan right to upload button. Hope this helps!! :salute:
