POSTING IMAGES


Images can indeed be shown in your posts. However, there is no facility at present for uploading images directly to this board. Therefore you must link to an image stored on a publicly accessible web server, e.g. http://www.some-unknown-place.net/my-picture.gif. You cannot link to pictures stored on your own PC (unless it is a publicly accessible server) nor images stored behind authentication mechanisms, e.g. hotmail or yahoo mailboxes, password protected sites, etc. To display the image use either the BBCode [img] tag or appropriate HTML

A good free site i recomend for storing your images at to link to is http://www.imagestation.com Simply set your self up an account there and follow directions for uploading your pictures. Once they are uploaded all you need to do is rigth click the image select properties, and copy the entire Address Given in the pop up windo. Then come back here, post that link, Highlight it and hit the button up top Titled [url]URL[/url]

Thats it :wink:

How do I create a poll?
Creating a poll is easy, when you post a new topic (or edit the first post of a topic, if you have permission) you should see a Add Poll form below the main posting box (if you cannot see this then you probably do not have rights to create polls). You should enter a title for the poll and then at least two options (to set an option type in the poll question and click the Add option button. You can also set a time limit for the poll, 0 is an infinite poll.

It looks like only a select few are able to create a poll. Must be a setting admins have set for members.

Edit to insert the word "like" in first sentence. :)

Polls are set by Forum not by user. Last week I found several forums the were not set correctly for members to create polls. When was the last time you tried Coldfront77? Please try again and let me know! :lol:
