I tried uploading attachments, but it failed. I will try later and send you the error message.

I found the gallery works, so now I just use that!

If you can send the error message that will be great. How big were the files you tried to upload? There is a 5MB per file limit, so if you were uploading large images that would be a problem. The gallery has a 50Mb limit, but will resize large images down to a max of 1024x768 so is able to deal with larger images much more gracefully.

If you resize before uploading it should work. The gallery is much more useful for this sort of thing though - you can repost the links in the blogs, forums, and also on other sites and it's still only taking up the space of a single image, whereas uploading as an attachment to multiple blog and/or forum posts takes up space for every copy uploaded.
