How do I access the advanced editor when I post a discussion question. I want to attach a document. I see how to attach an image. How about something simple?
We prefer you not attach anything. Many sites block attachments, and many of us refuse to open attachments for the same reason other sites block them. Paste text from your documents (along with images) directly into your postings.
There are lots of good help documentation at the Getting Started page, which also has instructions on how to change your display name so you're not just a number.
When posting a discussion question, you can click the Attach link in the bottom right corner of the text window to add an attachment.
Chitrasai1-Oracle: Although Oracle Community – How To FAQ states "You can attach files only in restricted communities (e.g. MOSC)", I was able to do so in the Community Feedback (No Product Questions) space.
Agree with the previous responses.
In addition, if you're having trouble getting to the "Advanced Editor" then that may be because you are trying to respond to a thread within your "Inbox". The inbox (currently) only allows for the basic editor to be used in replies; so if you want the advanced editor you'll need to click on the title of the thread at the bottom of your inbox (once you've selected the thread) and open up the thread to answer directly on it, from where you can then click on Advanced Editor.
What do you need to attach? If you wish to attach log information to your problem, I suggest pasting the relevant information into your post instead. The way I see it, the problem with attachments is that many people are inclined to dump megabytes of log information because they have absolutely no clue whatsoever, or want other people to do the job for them. However, that's no good excuse. I personally ignore attachments and have no desire to clutter my disk space with people's junk. Also, keep in mind that the public forums are usually not the official support channel and people are not paid to respond.
If you have trouble pasting information, because of the software's silly text to table conversion, here's a trick you may find useful. I think this is a problem that needs to be fixed, including many other inconveniences, but the software vendor isn't Oracle.
