    This is an experiment. Here's a photo of Rupert Street, lined with cherries.

    Oops no can do. The "choose file" buttons are grayed out.

    Here's the photo - I had to e-mail it to myself and then post it from my computer.

    Right. That's why you need to get the link from a photo sharing site and post it into Upload File from a URL under Manage Attachments. I want to know if that works any differently from what I've written up for my Android phone.

    I was typing my reply when you posted that. That's cheating, because what I'm trying to document is doing it without access to a computer. So you'd need to put the photo someplace from your phone, from which you can access it from the forums.

    OK, but do you like the photo? You didn't say. ;)

    Sure, it's a great photo, and I'll enjoy seeing it here for all your testing! And if you rename it, you can post it in the neighbourhood. Renfrew-Collingwood, Kanzans.

    OK, you're off the hook. Using the Opera Mini browser (a free app) makes the Choose file buttons work. And Daniel will be looking into getting a mobile app for the forums.

    So it's not so important now if my instructions are not exactly correct for the iPhone.
