Hey Mike, I feel dumb asking you again but the first time you explained how to upload images direct from the C drive you said to scroll down for the options. Well I managed to do it in my first posts but now I only have 1 tab displayed as options but theres nothing about inserting images.

For example, as i type this I see 2 tabs below. Options and Poll creation. Neither lets me post pics tho.

any idea whats going on? i feel like i am missing something obvious.

Standby, I'm gonna phantom your logon and see if I can get the problem to replicate. You're relatively new to the board, did you ever have the ability to post photos?
A few months back when we were getting raped with spam hits, I locked down the permissions for "new users"
I suspect, any issue you're noticing now is a remnant of the now defunct "newly registered users" group.
I'll work on it...

Ugh.... the spam hits... Thankfully they've settled down on the Astro board too. I damn near quit that board because of that. Thankfully the site's new owners finally showed up- about 2 or 3 weeks ago. :roll:

Tom, my love...

The site has allowed uploading of images for quite a while. lol

Markus, I can set the image file size that is allowable by the website.
I'm not sure what we should allow it to accept.
I'll mull it over and increase the allowable file size.
