    Hi you all,
    I have been reading but haven't figured out yet how to post and a bit shy to dive in...but have to break the ice and do it..I hope this gets through into the General Discussion Forum... Have been out of town for three days and hope now to focus on this great new forum site..thanks to you all for devising this site..It's a winner!

    Also hope to figure how to post pictures.. I must read the HELP.. I got a neat hawk the other day and would love to show you.

    This is really a test so hope it works :D

  2. Hi Gaye and welcome. Posting is not too difficult - after you open up the message and type what you want to look up at the top with all the little boxes. Click on the Img box and then put in your URL like you would on dpreview (don't forget .jpg) and then click on the Img box again. Hit submit on the bottom and it should post fine. Just let us know if you need any help.

    Thanks, Gordon,
    Not sure this is going to work. I'll try to post a picture with this..This is definitely a test and if it doesn't work I'm going to bed anyway and figure it out tomorrow.

    Picture didn't come up..just site link??

    This didn't work so how do I get the picture to show up in the post?

    Gordon, you already identified this hawk..thanks again for that info..You said 'Sharp Shinning Hawk'-- I was out there again today and saw another one but didn't have my camera.. in fact it was probably this same one..

    Thanks,

    Gaye
     
  5. GeeJay,

    The one without the / goes before the image.jpg and the one with the / goes after the image.jpg

    It just takes a little getting used to.

    Welcome to the group,

    Hey Gaye!!

    It should look like this:

    [​IMG]

    I do it a little different that some of the others, but the result is the same.

    First, I post my link (just like on DPR), then I highlight it, and click the Img button.

    Nice pic BTW :)

    Regards,

    Frank
     
  8. You got it! I forgot to add that if you click the preview it shows up there if you did it correctly,

  10. You have broken the code. Good image by the way.

  11. Welcome, Gaye, glad to see you hear.

    One thing to note on using the Img and URL tags at the top. Be VERY careful of where you think the cursor is and where the tags think it is. These tags want to go at the end of whatever text you type, so trying to go back into the middle of a paragraph and using the tag buttons won't work. What is even more annoying is the the tags are toggles, so the 1st time you hit Img you get [​IMG]. Erase one, retype it by hand, and the next time you choose it, oops, you get the wrong one. I like Frank's idea, highlight the URL and then press the Img, slick idea.

    The only reason I know this is that I belong to a local forum which uses the same software, with the same annoyances :) .

    Dang nice Hawk, folks.

    And I second the suggestion on using the Preview button to ensure that you have what you want before you Submit.

    Thanks from Gaye

    Hey you all,
    I knew eventually I'd make the move to post on this forum. I signed up early but only looked at your posts...didn't have the courage to post...but now feel more comfortable and sure appreciate your good suggestions about how to do the pictures etc..............

    Thanks a bunch and I'll be watching and will be back soon.

    Gaye

    PS.. How do you get the little picture with your name?

    Yours are all great.
    Frank, your little birdie face is too cute!

    Re: Thanks from Gaye

    Gaye,

    First you have to make a very small pic (using PS or whatever application that you use). It should be no more than 80 pixels on a side, and I think has to be less than 9K.

    Then you click on your profile and scroll down to the Avatar selection section. I used the 'Upload Avatar from your machine' option. Then just click the 'browse' button, and find and select the small pic you made.

    That should be it.

    Let me know if you have any problems.

    Regards,

    Frank

    I think I got my little picture in but not sure so am trying it out with this...it should be two White Pelican heads and beaks..

    Thanks Mike and Frank.....

    Good to be here!

    Gaye

    Nope it didn't go in so must work more on that project.. I think it's supposed to be no more than 80 pixels on each side and what's the total KB? I thought I kept it very small but must not have..
