For those who don't use Photobucket or another image hosting service, the forum has the facility to attach images to your post/reply.

This guide shows uploading images as attachments, but the same method can be used for other files.

Double click Reply on the thread and you will be shown this screen with the reply box.
Now press the button which is higlighed in the below picture.
