Below the reply box, choose "go advanced". This will give you more options on the reply box. Click the paper clip icon - should open uploading box. You can either upload from your phone or from an URL. After uploaded, return to reply box and click down arrow beside the paper clip and choose the picture you wish to post (if you uploaded more than one picture)

I use an Android phone to post, and have found that I can only attach one picture at a time if you aren't using a url. Instead of selecting multiple pics in one go, you may have to attach them one at a time by repeating the action. Your experience may be different, I think my image sizes are just too large.
Just thought it might help if you find yourself selecting multiple pictures and only ending up with one thumbnail.

Thanks to both of you - I couldn't reply individually- maybe that's the next question LoL. @indjo your betta looks similar to mine! Again thanks for the detailed info. I did click on the paperclip but wasn't in "advanced" so maybe that's why nothing happened.

To reply to an individual post, check the box in the top right corner of the reply you want to respond to. Then you will see quotation marks near the top of the screen. Select that. Easy peasy. Looking forward to seeing you around the forum & welcome!

I am using "Full view" (not mobile) version on an android phone. This is what I see when replying

Click "go advanced". This is what you should see

Click on the paper clip (not arrow). This should open a new tab - uploading page

If you want to upload from phone's storage, click "choose file" then upload. You can upload one by one or choose a number of pictures then upload at once.

When you quote a post, you will have the same options as "go advance"

@indjo this is GOLD. THANK YOU MUCH for taking the time to post this tutorial it's exactly what I needed. I didn't realize the site doesn't support mobile (or at least Android) so I wasn't going to "full view" which is really the desktop version.
Now what you were saying before makes perfect sense!
Again I really appreciate your clarification 🌷

Have a wonderful day 😀🌈🐠

So.... I went to "full view", then "advanced view" or whatever that option is, but the "advanced" toolbar isn't showing up.

Not sure. what's going on maybe I'll reboot the phone and try again. If all else fails I'll ask a developer friend as I've never had trouble with the phone it's the newest Pixel 3 and mind blowingly intuitive for an Android 😉

Meanwhile when I get to my clunky PC I'll post from there but it's so s-l-o-w compared to the mobile. Probably running Firefox isn't helping, but I like the open source software.

Forgot to mention the Pixel 3 has zero bells and whistles it's like a clean slate (compared to a Galaxy for example) so maybe I have to program something but it's weird bcs I've never had a problem like this in years of Android use but I feel like a retard at this point 😱
