    Problem with system or operator error?

    Hi Peter,

    I have been having a bit of trouble logging in, getting my icons, and photos! Perhaps you can help. I have followed the directions but maybe I am doing something wrong.

    Please help!
    GOD SPEED,

    There has got to be a better way ! I am sure we would see many more photos if it was not so complicated ! Isnt there a program whereby we just post our pic. , any size , and the software will resize to fit ?

    May I add a suggestion, hope so cause Iím going to anyway. Have any of you thought about using photo-bucket? It seems to have everything you need. A place to store your photos, edit them. Just donít change the name the site gives you. It also gives you the click option to where you just click the paste the information on the forums.

    http://photobucket.com it is free.

    As for right clicking on the photo with the red x means the server doesnít support what is called hot linking. That is the term used in web design. It has to do with the bandwidth that is used to link to the pictures.
    I my self just learned this as I decided to use the web space that my ip provider uses for another forum and had the same problems.

    I'm with you Norb. What happened to our capability of adding a photo directly from our computer,(up to 5)?? That's how I got all my photos into my page (1953 Buick Super 8 Convertible) on the Me and my Buick forum. If I have to go through the gyrations described at the beginning of this thread FORGET IT!!

    Well what do you know. It worked here. What's the deal??

    I'm with you Bill, it is sooo much easier to just add photos as an attachment-scroll down when posting a reply and clic on Manage Attachments, then browse your computer for the one's you want. The only proviso is they must be suitably re-sized (I keep a folder of pics which I have re-sized in readiness) and Voila!

    I am wondering why there has never been an official clarification for doing this directly from your computer? Or move the explanatin above to the beginning of the thread.

    Just curious......

    From Forum FAQ
    Most of the info in this thread is 8 years old and is obsolete due to change in forum software. The current 'sticky' thread should be eliminated to avoid confusion.

    Agreed -- it's now out-dated information.
