View Full Version : Went for a sail today...
..on the "Lizzie G," a 19th century sharpie on Little Sarasota Bay, FL. We could have used some more wind, but fun was had by all, nonetheless! Special thanks to the volunteer captain and crew who were great. I'll post some pics if someone can refer me to instructions for doing this. I can't seem to do it alone...

irst - don't attach photos. Most web forums don't allow it, and space
limitations are the main reason why.
Second - Instead of attaching them to a thread, post the pics on the web
somewhere. You have a free website area with any paid ISP's email account,
or use www.picturetrail.com or other free hosting service. Once posted on
the web, right-click the image to copy the URL (web address). Always test
first by pasting the image URL into the window of a web browser and see if
the image displays.
Remember, the IMAGE URL will end in .jpg, not .htm or html. URLs ending in .htm are the page that the image is at, not the image location itself. If the image URL ends in other code, try deleting everything after the "xxxxxx.jpg" part of the URL to get it to display on web forums.
Third - once posted on the web, try this procedure while logged in to this
1. Click the "User CP" link in the browser window in the top left of the
2. Click the "Edit Options" link about 1/4 of the way down the left column.
3. In the "Misc Options" at the bottom of the next page, select "Enhanced
Interface" from the pulldown list.
4. Once this interface has been selected, in any "Reply" window you can
click the "insert photo" icon --> a little yellow square icon with the stamp
in the upper right corner, the mountains in the lower center.
5. Once the little dialog box titled "Please enter the URL of your image"
comes up, paste the URL of the photo in the field.
If unsure of the procedure, test first by pasting the image URL into the
window of a web browser.
