To my knowledge you can't do anything more in PM than you can on the forums. You can insert YouTube, pictures and hyperlinks but only to the extent that you can on the rest of the site. So no "attachments" per se, like a Word doc, Excel, PDF or video. If you have Dropbox you could put it there and place a hyperlink in the message as a work around.

That's what I know, perhaps a mod has more insight.
To fish or not to fish? That's a stupid question!

The easiest way I found to send a picture (url only) is to open up any thread ...reply to that thread with the Add image to post select your picture ..preview ypur reply ...click on the picture ..then the share button ..on the drop down options select Hotlink to forum..copy that link ..put that link in your pesonal message ...BUT DONT SEND THE REPLY TO THE FIRST THEAD MESSAGE ..this is best down with two tabs open .
