    Got to get up early to beat you to it, but I set my alarm,

    I do have a question tho, I finally figured out how to post the pics inserted into the text, but some people get them enlarged in the post, all I've been able to do is get thumbnails

    Without trying to get too detailed, when you see the thumbnail pic like this...

    Click image for larger version.

    ...the picture is stored on our forum's server, and the forum software automatically creates the thumbnail. This is what you get when you use the little paperclip icon and "attach" your pics to your post.

    On the other hand, when you see the full-sized pic with no thumbnail, it means the picture was not stored on our server, and is instead on another server somewhere out in Internetland. Here's the same picture, stored on one of my own websites...



    To display a picture like this, you click the little "Insert Image" icon (looks like a picture of mountains and the sun) and type the web address for the picture. It can be your own website, or something like Photobucket or one of the other similar sites.

    To make matters more confusing, some of the photo hosting sites like Photobucket also provide a way to post a thumbnail image that will expand to the full size when the thumbnail is clicked. Since I don't use that method, I won't try to explain how to do it.

    In general, the preferred method for posting pics (at least IMHO) is to use the paperclip icon and store the pics on our forum server. That way, we can be sure the pics remain available for others to see. (Some independent hosting sites come and go. We aren't planning on this site going anywhere in the foreseeable future.)

    There's a trick I use on this forum. I use the paperclip to upload the images, then add them to my post. Then I open up each picture in a new window, get the url to the picture (stored on the FWW server) and enter that url in include picture icon.

    That does two things, 1, it stores the picture on the FWW Server, and 2, lets me show the picture full size in the post.... It's a bit of a roundabout way of doing things, but it works!

    While all of them are visually striking, I consider some of them utterly dangerous and anti-ergonomic.

    IMHO I do not share the idea that anything goes for the sake of just being unusual or "original", and more specially when those things are to be used.
    Best regards,
    Toni
