JOHN,
I HAVE READ THE FORMATTING INFO ON POSTING AN IMAGE AND STILL DO NOT UNDERSTAND IT. I ALSO DID NOT SEE AN OPTION FOR THE UPLOAD IMAGE ON THE NEW THREAD WHEN I POSTED IT......... HELP..

Hi Scott. After you click on the 'General Discussions' link there is a 'directions' link on the first page loaded, before you enter a specific discussion group. The proper syntax to use is the print in red letters along with the green backslash.
The easiest way is to highlight the text from that page and copy it, then paste it one line down from your message text. For example, my text above, then.

'syntax'
'syntax'
'syntax'
'syntax'

This would post 4 photos after my message.

'syntax' ?

Oh, you mean like this:

\image{Pic#1}
Caption text for Pic #1

\image{Pic#2}
Caption text for Pic #2

\image{Pic#3}
Caption text for Pic #3

\image{Pic#4}
Caption text for Pic #4

Well, yeah...sort of. But use the words 'file name' in the brackets, not the actual name of the file. Copy exactly from the 'directions' page. If you have the correct syntax, you will be prompted for the photos after you click 'submit', so I can't show here exactly what to type.
Also, you can type your message first and have your photos appear after your message.

Scott-

I have created some directions of my own. The link to them is on the rules page for the board. Here is the link:
