Hello, I am Technologically challenged. I have an iPhone and I can't figure out how to download videos or pictures from my phone to my post. And he information would be greatly appreciated. It keeps saying that app does not have access to my videos and photos, and to change it in settings. But I don't know what settings to change and want to change them too.

I don't have an iPhone, so I'm not sure if its the same or not, but on my computer, down at the bottom of the page when you have the screen up where you're typing in your post, click on "Upload a File" Its right next to the "Post Reply" button. This will take you to your computer's (phone's???) store of pictures and videos. Let me know if this works so I know that phones and computers are more or less the same instructions.

There is not a "update a file" option on the phone that I can find. I can get to a parts that has a place to post from albums but it says that there's no access and I have to go to the privacy settings. Either privacy settings only on the computer and not on the app?

I looked at the privacy settings on the phone and on the computer. What do I set them to to give the app access? Do I have to download the pictures to something like tiny pics first or can I do it directly from the pictures and videos on my phone?

You'll have to add videos to Youtube or Vimeo or similar service and then post them here

Hey Yvonne it’s Yvonne a here..
Here are the new pics I was trying to send about the swollen leg.. I could only see attached files on this post that you had from a long time ago so I had to find it attach the pictures to that and send them to you but it is about the new problem I’m having with her back leg not extending I love you for understanding and I’m sorry I’m so computer challenged...
Sincerely
Yvonne
