I use to be able to do this, but can't seem to figure out how to do it anymore. Did a search, but I guess my ineptitude gean is being dominant today. Can anyone help me?

1.STORE PHOTOS IN IMAGE STATION OR SUCH.
2.COPY PROPERTIES AT SUCH SITE
3 RETURN TO THE POST BOX AND CLICK THE PICTUE OF A MOUNTAIN IN THETOOL BAR,A WINDOW SAYING TO POST LINK WILL OPEN
4.PASTE THE PHOTO LINK IN THE BOX AND THAT SHOULD DO IT. GOOD LUCK . DanL

The properties are the URL address of the image. In this case,

http://members.arstechnica.com/x/htom/IMG_1467-751autoweighted.jpg

but when that address is pasted into the box that pops up when you click on the mountain, this is the result:

And try what I do: Copy/Paste any jpg image that is on any website (including your own Imagestation acct). Its a bit quicker than using the yellow image icon

But some people tell me my abridged method doesn't work for them.

I don't have that little icon nor any of the other things I use to have since the site did its up grade many moons ago. All I have is a post icons spot and a thing that says additional options with miscaellaneous options, an spot that says attatch files (I haven't been able to get this to do anything but spend time down and uploading stuff I don't see again.

Use Pbucket http://photobucket.com/

It's free and very user friendly. You can browse your picture files from Pbucket, and load them right up. Sometimes I have trouble if I attempt a bunch at once, but usually no problem. Just do as it says.

Then, to post, either from the 'library' view, or after calling up the particular picture, there is a selection of different formats (in text), the one xxxx is the one you want. Copy that text, and post it into your WBF copy. Voila! You don't use any of the various 'attach' or otherwise from the WBF website.

I posted this via tinypic.com but don't know how to make it smaller. The top two pics are of my boat and home, the lower is of another sailboat like mine:

1. Click on "User CP" (on the brown bar near the top of the page).
2. Select "Edit Options" from the left hand menu column.
3. Scroll all the way down to the bottom to Miscellaneous Options and select something other than "Basic Editor."
4. Click the Save Changes button.
