Work with attachments 

You can replace or delete the file attachments that you add to forum threads.

Before you begin

To edit attachments in a stand-alone forum, be the person who uploaded the attachment, the forum owner, or the Forums administrator. In a community forum, only the community owner or the person who uploaded an attachment can edit that attachment.

About this task

When you create or respond to a discussion topic, you can share attachments with other people in the discussion. Adding attachments can be a useful way to include supplemental information that is too long to cover in the body of your message. If you want to delete or replace the attachment at a later stage, you can do so by editing your message. You can also upload additional attachments as needed.


To work with file attachments...

  1. Open the topic containing the attachment that you want to work with.

  2. Click Edit under the post that you want to edit and do one of the following:

    • To replace a file with an updated version, click Replace next to the file, click Browse to locate the file you want to add instead, and then click OK.

    • To remove a file from the post, click Remove next to the file.

    • To add another attachment, click Attach a File, click Browse to select the location of the file, and then click OK.

  3. Click Save to save your changes.
