When posting a reply you are taken to a page that says thank you and gives you a link to go back to the thread. Instead of clicking this link, if you wait 1-2 seconds you will automatically be taken to the thread without clicking a link.

Signatures

Why not include your latest "Sales and wanted" in your signature like mine, so that people see it every time you post?

Posting Pictures

Unread postby Glen » Mon May 21, 2012 9:33 pm

Here's how you do it:

When you are adding a post. Below are two tabs. One says "Options" and the other says "Upload Attachment".

Click "Upload Attachment".

Click "Browse..." - this will allow you to browse your computer and select the image you want. You will then see the chosen file name in the Filename box.

If you wish you can "Add a comment" in the File Comment box (description of photo)

Click "Add File"

Then submit your post as normal.

Hope that helps

Uploading and Posting Images and URL's

Unread postby Glen » Fri Sep 14, 2012 10:06 pm

Images from your PC = Click the big button that says upload attachment and then add the file. Also here viewtopic.php?f=30&t=36

Images from an external URL = Click the IMG button and type in the address

Web page URL featuring image = Click the URL button and type in the address

Videos from You tube and Vimeo
= Click the share link and simply paste in the URL its gives you

Flickr
= Copy the link to the gallery you want to show and simply paste it in the message e.g viewtopic.php?f=29&t=45

Any link you want to add in to the post = Simply type it it and it automatically creates a link for you.


Basically I have tried to add every eventually in the editor so that you can upload things but if I have left anything out give me a shout.

Glen, don't think the tide times link on the site are working, today they are completely wrong. It's been like that for at least a couple of months, I remember being caught out in the summer when using them.

That's all sorted now give or take half an hour depending how high up the north east coast you are.
