    On Mon, 12 Nov 2012, vuego suggested that this page or section is outdated and needs to be updated - Old forum.

    You may attach files, such as images and logs, directly to your forum posts. In fact, when requesting support you must always attach Log Files. Attaching screenshot images can often be a key to solving your problem.

    Basically this works exactly like attaching files to a New Thread. The only difference is that you can not attach files using Quick Reply. 

    If you want to attach a file to a reply, then you have to click 'Go Advanced' at the bottom of the page.
