How about adding a camera function to the forum, so when people want to attach a photo they can do it right in the text block. Just a suggestion. Would have liked it several times when I had to transfer a picture from one device to another. I don’t keep pictures on a cloud. Too much data used.
If you open the forum on an Android phone you can choose Camera, Camera Camcorder, or Files after you click the upload button - choosing the 1st allows you to take a photo directly into your text box, which sounds like what you’re looking for; the 2nd gets you a video, and the last: photos already taken.
If you’re Apple I’m certain there is something similar, but don’t know the mechanics.
Same on iOS. Thanks. I should have known. It is part of the web site, independent of OS
