I think for the forum most of us use Photobucket.  It's free and pretty easy.

I just start my message and then when I want to insert the photo I copy the IMG code from Photobucket and then paste it here.



Does that help?

Oh and I don't use that "insert image" thingy.  I just copy and post the code.

Sal I tried but kept getting  "Session verification failed. Please try logging out and back in again, and then try again."  I gave up after 3 attempts.  Don't know if it's me or your software?

Took 3 attempts to post my last message.  Kept getting "Your session timed out while posting. Please try to re-submit your message."  I know that ain't me.

Hey Hound.   Glad it worked.  Are those drilling cores?

Timed out would be your connection - it's not moving for some reason.   Mine does that a lot, too - on any website.  If you have a slow connection and you hit a thread with a lot of pictures it can give you a real pain.   I've gotten in forums that people are posting youtubes on and get caught - I get the hour glass and can't back out and the page won't load.  It's gotten so bad at times I've had to completely shut my browser down.  Unfortunately, I can't afford to pay more for faster connection speeds right now. 

 I don't know what's going on with a verification error. I get those sometimes, too in various forums.  I think that's just a glitch that happens when more than one person is doing something at the same time.  It might also be because my connection is slow.  I talked to my server tech today about my connection and he says California has a lot of electrical interference.

As far as the photo gallery - when I went into your account and posted those pics for you I couldn't figure out what the problem you have there is.  I'd probably have to sit down and watch you do something to be able to figure out why you're  having problems with that one. 

Isn't technology fun?

I'm not the tech here - I would have not clue one how to add a feature - or which can or can't be added.
Let me send out an email to Dave and tell him there are questions here that I can't answer.  He should be able to set it straight.
