|Dice Roller Button|
This button allows you to insert dice rolls into your post without typing code by hand. For a more in-depth explanation, see the appropriate section in the FAQ, here.
|Attaching a File|
Should you want to use the attach feature to upload maps or other images, please see the Friendly Guide to Image Uploading.
The Attach File feature is a handy item for DMs and players who wish to display maps, pictures of characters or scenery, or maybe a Word file with some rules, etc.
The process is self explanatory: after you press the button, you choose to upload a file by clicking the Browse button; and then pick the file you wish to upload. Make sure it's a supported file type. Once you have all the files you wish to upload ready in the different fields, click the upload button and wait for the page to reload or refresh. When this has occured, you can upload more files or close the window. The files will appear under your post.
The site keeps track of all your attachments. Having a very large number may invite questions.
