Attempt to post thread with piccies

Well, my post had piccies in JPeg and I tried to upload the whole file all ready to post. It is a Word Doc. I got an error message saying it could not upload the file as it was short a security tag???
I haven't a clue what that is, sorry. Can anyone help?
Thanks in advance.

You can use a Word Document to edit your post, and then you copy/paste the entire document into the forum's editor.

However, if that document includes pictures that you can "see in Word", they will not post to the forum. You must use link references to the picture where it is hosted. Pictures do NOT reside inside of a post. They are simply referenced to, either as a direct link to a hosted picture, or as an attachment.

I not quite sure how you fashioned your world document. As you are in England and I'm in the states o'er the pond, a telephone call is too expensive.

Can you describe just how your Word document was written? How did the pictures relate to the document? ie, as an inline visible picture in the document, or you did an attachment to the post, or?
