    Well it seems we got the image attachment worked out . and that was nice , but what i realy wanted to know was how to post a link . when i press browse i get the desktop open for choosing, no way to get to the favorites menu. so i moved the link to the desktop and tried from there but that is a shortcut and cant function that way . it would be nice to be able to share some of my links on the bord here even tho most of them came from here.

    Thanks

    I assume you mean links to other webpages on the net. If so and assuming you use InternetExplorer, simply navigate to the page that you want to post a link for. Then once your at the webpage, Right click in the Address window of IE and then select Copy. Now come back to this site and when your composing your reply, Right click in the Reply window and select "Paste".

    I hope I understootd your question correctly ....

    that was great . another qestion . i see that it is possible to rename links that you post , sometimes it says you can find it "here" . rather than showing the total url . can you tell me how to do that . please and thank you .

    Type the word you want to use instead of the whole URL and then highlight it. Look at the top of the text area and click on the icon of the earth with a paper clip in front of. In the pop up box, paste the URL and click "ok."

    I guess that spam post bumped it up. All I noticed what "April" on the posting.

    Yeah, I thought that was current too at first. I wonder why they bother to go back that far just to spam. :rolleyes::D
