Sure...  Click on "Profile"... then "Modify Profile"... then "Look and Layout"... then click the box that says "Show most recent posts at top".  You should be al set after that.

One more thing everyone may want to do is also click the box that says
"Return to topics after posting by default".  What this does is when you compose a message and submit, it will show you your post as everyone else sees it.

Thank you, Grey Wolf.  Makes it much easier to follow with newest messages first.  Do not know why I had problems finding it.

Hi Gray Wolf,

Cannot post a photo saved on my laptop.  It is a small photo - 150x150

Get an error message saying "uploader full..."

Do I need move photo to photobucket... is that still the best option for this Forum?

Thanks,

PhotoBucket, Flikr and others where the photo can be stored so the link works properly. 

I'm having issues showing an example.  For some reason, my link won't paste into the body of this message.

Lee et al,
I like to use the image thumbs.
This way when someone clicks on the thumb, they can see a full sized pic.
This keeps the forum clean and the post smaller and still allows viewing of the larger pic if desired.
If you go into album settings, check the thumb option, this will set that action as default

You can also make your albums private so that only the linked pic can be viewed.

Rufus,

After you select the photo you want and then click on the Thumbnail code, which it automatically copies for you, what is your next step.  Usually I would right click and then click on "Paste", but I'm not getting that option.  I can't figure out what I'm missing as this is the way I always did it before.

Yup, it auto copied for me too, then I just pasted in place.
Here is what the code should look like( minus the beginning & end [], also minus the beginning & end IMG [].. I replaced with red parenthesis otherwise the code will go to link )

Jack,
I went into your test post and played with it, I got it to show a pic and link to it but it was not a thumb pic to link from. Not sure why not, maybe because you didn't originally set it up to do a thumb.
You can click edit your post and see what I did.
From the looks of the code you entered, you selected the "Share by email & IM" option, which will just give you a link.

Rufus,

That's weird, because I went specifically to the thumbnail image code.  But I'm still not getting "Paste" as an option when I come back into my message, no matter what I click.  This is odd.   ???

What browser are you using, and is it up to date?
It works just fine for me, I'm using Firefox 17.

I'm using Firefox 17, also.  I've sent a PM.

Thanks!

Thanks to Rufus I'm happy to post this info.  If you're having trouble getting your image code to work, try using either "Ctrl+V" or "Shift+Insert" when entering your image code.  I was able to accomplish my photo insert using these methods.

Yep, the inserts work and are "clickable"!   :)   Thanks Rufus!  :)

Now if you go into the privacy setting, at the bottom you can set your albums to "private" and this will only allow the pic you linked to be viewed...for those that don't want everyone and their dog looking through your photos
As you have it set now, every pic in the linked album is viewable...

I changed the setting.  See how it does now.  When I click on the link, of course I can see them all, because it's my album.   :)

Let me know what you see.  Thanks!

I don't think it's retroactive...Try editing one of the pics to reflect new coding.
