    Hi Richard,

    Can WE (i.e registered members) do this.

    I tried to post pictures but it says that I need to have them hosted by a third party??

    I would also like to post some hydrophone amplifier circuit boards which are .pdf's and some .doc and .txt?

    How can I do this?

    To add an image to your posts, follow these instructions to the letter...

    First, select your image from your hard drive and have it ready...

    When you've finished typing your post and you're ready to add an image, look above the message box and you will see a row of tags, place your cursor on the tag 15th from the left, the one marked "host an image" and left click on it. A window will open saying 'upload your image'...left click on the little box marked 'choose file' and your will be directed to your pictures/documents folder on your pc.
    Left click on the image you wish to add to your post, the image name will appear alongside the 'choose file' box...left click on the small box underneath marked 'host it', wait a couple of seconds and another window will appear giving you three choices marked 'thumbnail' 'image' and 'image url'....left click the centre one marked 'image' and will be highlighted in blue. Left click on the little box alongside it marked 'copy'...move your cursor into the message box, right click and then left click on 'paste'...your image url will appear in the message box.

    Scroll down a few turns and you will see two tags marked 'preview' and 'send'....left click on the one marked 'preview' and above you will see how your post will look complete with the image inserted.

    Scroll down again and press the tag marked 'send'...you will now have have sent your post plus the image, wait a second and your new post will appear before you.

    To add muliple images, just keep following this instruction, remembering to press 'review' every time, it clears the image host box and you can see what your doing.

    Ask, and ye shall receive...

    (failing that, send them to me and I'll do it for you David.)

    Thanks Richard! Your very detailed instructions let me upload a .jpg

    No luck with any other file format however .pdf .txt etc.

    Can we only post images not documents?

    Hmm...good point David, answer is...I don't know.

    Try converting the files you wish to post to a .jpg or even a .bmp format (just copy and paste), that should then work.

    Still no joy posting photos to the Forum from home. (Works from the Uni network.)

    In answer to Nigel's suggestion I tried turning all Firewalls off (I had the Windows one on) Did not sort the problem.

    I really don't know the answer to your problems, David...I can upload pics from three different laptops, a desktop and my iPad. It does get a bit difficult uploading from my iPhone, though...

    Can you give me a quick run down on your home pc...and your o/s?
