Cannot post images

I have just re-located / upgraded quite an old YaBB site. I am trying to update it so users can post images. When I open a board, at the bottom of the page it says

You can view Topics in this Board.
You can post replies to Topics in this Board.
You can start new Topics in this Board.
You can start Polls in this Board.
You can post towards your Post Count in this Board.

You cannot post Attachments in this Board.

How do I change this last setting - I have enabled image upload in the advanced settings - how do I upload an image to the board and attach it to a post?

[i.e. how do I get the attachment option at the end of this post to appear?]

Thanks,
John

Getting the Admin center straightened out is on the to-do list for 2.6 (It's confusing even for experienced Admins even though YaBB has one of the better Admin centers - which does not say nice things about everybody else's.)  Shocked
  

If you only have one solution to a problem you're not trying hard enough!

I agree. While YaBB's Admin Center can be a bit confusing, it's still far better, and much more organized than other forum software.

That's why I'm hoping future versions of the Admin Center will more or less look the same, and be as generally easy to use.

  

Morning, noon, or night, have a great one!
