    You have to have images hosted on a free image hosting service like www.imageshack.us Once you have that, and have hosted a picture there, copy the URL for a direct link to the picture. Then while posting here, you just push the little picture button at the top of the text edit box. It will ask for a URL. Paste in your URL for the direct link to the picture that you have hosted.

    It sounds harder than it really is. First thing's first...set up an image hosting account - the are free.

    Because of the problems we are having with access speed, Bumper removed the second line of links in the blue at the top of the page. The link to the Member's Gallery was on the second line. Use this link to get to the gallery and you can post pictures there. Then open the picture and copy the direct link code. In your post click on the icon to insert and image and paste the direct link in.

    There are other ways to do it, but this works well.

    Ron - indeed yes - three options actually and two have been suggested. I keep meaning to write a help page for this purpose and will try to do so.

    You can also write your message, and ........ add a pic that is on your computer as an attachment - go to this page of mine which is actually for another site help but is same principle ..... Using attachments.

    Do try and keep pics within reasonable size limits both physically and re file size - it helps speed up folk's downloads.

    Ron - your request prompted me to put up a help page - in case anything there that might further assist you, or anyone else ...... take a peek at Picture Posting Help

    Problems until things settle down?

    I tried to post some pictures today but it doesn't seem to want to take. I used the attachment route and the gallery route. Problems with posting until we settle down?

    The Gallery that holds the pictures is controlled by a script and when there is an upgrade of the software Bumper has to revise the script. I expect the move to a new server with a new IP address has caused some problems with the script again.

    Please bear with us. Bumper may not fix the script until we get moved to our permanent server. He mentioned to the moderators a few days ago that moving to the dedicated server might enable him to use a different piece of software for the gallery and that should negate the need to reconfigure everytime the forum software is updated.

    I'm sure Bumper will have more info for us when he slows down a bit. I expect he is spending a good deal of time right now trying to recover the 3 days of posts that are missing.

    Take care and thanks for hanging in there with us.

    Thanks. Figured that it had something to do with the swap.

    Hanging tight until everything is fixed.

    Still problems with posting pictures by attachment. I have posted pictures by using the hosting route so we can get by.
