I'm not sure if I'm missing something, but I don't see the manage attachments button under the text field. I searched the FAQ, but could not find if there is some post limit/minimum before being able to do this?

You have to select edit, then select advanced edit. That should be what you're looking for.

Sorry, I'm not seeing edit or advanced edit buttons under the text field. I see Post Icons, Image Verification, and then Submit Reply & Preview Post. I tried both Firefox and Internet Explorer, even turned off ad blockers.

I just realized, you meant edit an already existing post. What I am trying to do is attach a file to a post/reply.

If you click on the reply button, it will open a new screen allowing you to write your post, above the text field you will see lots of buttons, don't you see this "manage attachment" button in this create post screen like shown in my screenshot?

The UI may differ depending on the used theme of course.

No that button is missing for me. Tried to attach a screen shot, but it won't let me do that either (only put in a URL). Tried on mobile device too, and that button is not there.

This attachment feature is not present for members below 10 posts but you are above this limit so it should be there, I don't understand. Some ideas of tests:
- wipe cache of your browser
- try Google Chrome
- try another xda theme
- wait 24h or 48h and it may be fixed by itself
- or if still not working we may need admin assistance

I've no experience with IE but I'd the same issue quite a while ago on FF when I used the add-ons uBlock Origin and NoScript. For this reason, I've created an own profile for FF to use XDA.
