Posting template error

I don't know how long it's been like it (I suspect ever since the Flickr option was added) but I think the post template is up the creek.
When you open up the additional options the Attach is below Insert Photo from Flickr which makes it look as though you can only attach photos from Flickr.

Re: Posting template error

It's been that way for at least 3 months.
I found it hellishly difficult to work out how people were adding attachments to their posts...

Re: Posting template error

Has anyone from Plusnet looked at this? The post from axisofevil somewhat justifies my observation.

I'll flag it to Tam, since he wrote the Flickr bit.

Re: Posting template error

Darn, it. I think file uploads were disabled when i first implemented the Flickr addon and I never noticed it since they were re-enabled.
Thanks jelv, I'm on the case...

Re: Posting template error

Oh OK - it's that I couldn't actually remember seeing any posts in these forums where it had been used. How do they appear?

Re: Posting template error

So what advantage does that give us compared to just inserting it as a normal image (taking in to account the main purpose of these forums)?
Like so:

It begins to look to me that it's more it's something someone did because they could than a useful feature that enhances the dialogue between Plusnet and their users.
