    I've never tried using Tapatalk -- on my Android phone, I've just used mobile Chrome to navigate the forum and post things. AFAIK, there's no mobile version of the website, so you just have a very unwieldy UI, and attaching images is basically the same as on a desktop, it just requires lots of zooming in to press small buttons. I will say that I generally use a browser on my laptop to write things/post images if possible, it's just nicer with a larger screen and real keyboard (but what isn't?). It might be worth a try?

    The process looks something like this (very similar to the desktop UX):

    Select the image, then get sent back to the modal window you saw before, press "Upload file(s)"

    Once the upload is complete, you'll see some markup added, and so the body of your post will look something like this:
    This is my pretend post.
    [ATTACH=CONFIG]123456[/ATTACH\] <-- this won't actually have that forward slash, I just couldn't figure out how to escape whatever triggers the tag parsing in a better way
    More text can go here
    That'll insert the image at the location indicated by that tag in your post. Don't delete it!

    Add whatever else to your post and then submit it.

    1/11/21 - Plane - my first thought was head to the Air and Space Museum, but that's so easy, when it's only a mile away.....so I went in the opposite direction and found these at WWII Memorial.

    I've only posted from my browser in a Windows PC, but there is an Android App for Tapatalk and based on signatures in this forum, it looks like many use it.

    1/11/21 - Airplane!

    Found a variety of "airplane" themed this to photograph today, but this one nearly instantly popped to mind, so it's what I'm going with for sharing here.

    1/11/21 - Plane


    Crossing the bridge and seeing the plane in the middle of the roundabout used to signal you were close to the US Air Force Base called Torrejon. My dad closed down the American side of the base about 30 years ago...now its a Spanish air base where my brother-in-law works.

    Some of you may remember from physics class that an inclined plane is one of the six simple machines (the others are Lever, Wheel and Axle, Pulley, Wedge, and Screw).

    A bridge ramp is an example of an inclined plane. I remain optimistic that someday this one will carry W&OD riders over Rt. 29.
