None of the file extensions I've tried work for me. The "Browse" button under the entry panel doesn't do a thing! Does everything have to be JPEG?

Hi Rufus I believe they do have to be jpeg files - I've not tried a PDF one. I often find the only way to locate the file is to put it on the desktop - it depends which device I'm using but if the actual button below isn't working it sounds more technical.

Rufus , any image I want to post from the internet, I save as a jpeg first, in a file I called Gransnet, then I can use the browse facility to post on GN..
I have never been able to get a file in any other format to post.

rufus I google the subject then just “copy and paste” the title and it comes up as a link
For pictures I click “choose file”:then go to my pictures on my iPad, select and bingo.

It must depend on the device you use, Copy and paste doesn't work for me.

Good morning, Maw! grin
