RE: how to post photos??

Load your pics onto your computer and resize them if needed (some photo sharing sites, like Photobucket, will automatically resize them for you though). Upload the pics to the photo sharing site of your choice, like Flikr, Photobucket, etc. Lots of these sites are free. Once you've uploaded the photo, copy the URL for the photo in HTML (look for the box, usually under the photo, with the URL in HTML) then paste it into the 'message' box when creating a thread or replying to a thread. The URL will have arrow brackets on each end and start with img src, like this: '< img src="http:myphotoblahblahblah' and end with '.jpg"/ >'. (I've put an extra space in next to the brackets so the instructions in the previous sentence would show, so omit them when actually posting). It should come out like this:

Check it with the 'preview' button, if your pic doesn't show, or it shows the coding but not hyperlinked (in blue and clickable) there is an error in the HTML coding somewhere. Most photo sharing sites give you nice, clear directions to help you out. :) HTML coding is the same all over, so you can use it wherever HTML is used on your computer or the Internet. Some sites are different and use the IMG code though--nearly identical to HTML but instead of arrow brackets, it uses square brackets like this [ ]. If one doesn't work try the other, and most photo sites offer both for you to use. Handy! Usually HTML is for websites & blogs, while IMG is for forums & bulletin boards.
