Hey

I don't know if you guys have this too or if it's just me. When writing/replying to posts, I can normally attach files to the post - like the attached picture.

When writing a post in a private message, I do not have the option to attach files.

Try disabling AdGuard and Malwarebytes Browser Guard and see if that helps. However, you can still drag and drop the picture into the text field that you want to share. For me everything is working normally. :unsure:

Since you are running normally, the fault is on my side.
Disabling Adguard and Malwarebytes doesn't help anything.
I still don't have this option when sending a private message,

Just my guess, it's might be for some reason of forums software, something like "new user restrictions" for PM/Conversations.
@Asterixpl joined March 19, 2022. maybe after a few more weeks/months it's possible to upload files even for PM...
