(Solved) - Impossible to post IMG(60 posts)

Yes, I rememember that song and liked it, so I'll have to add that to my iPOD.
What type of plane is that?? A Cessna . . . do they even make business jets?? A Gulfstream (do they make them that small?). I'd guess maybe a Beechcraft too, but I don't see that characteristic tail. A Leer??
I'm out of guesses.
I think what Geek is trying to do is make the thing more stable, not necessarily go one way or the other on coding. I had at one time inserted images with the BBCode bracket tags . . . . Then the thing no longer worked that way . . . one day it did, and one day it didn't, AND THAT WAS BEFORE GEEK EVEN MESSED WITH IT. Then I tried it with HTML coding, and finally got it to work. So whatever Geek ends up doing, whether it goes back to BBCode or stays with HTML coding, or both, or a modified version (in which case we'll all be learning again), I think it's just a matter of achieving stability and stopping the thing from being so fickle.
An excerpt from a post I made here http://www.howtogeek.com/forum.....replies=31 (and again, this was BEFORE Geek started to mess with it):
"OK . . . I finally got the images to work. After messing around with it for some time (and Rick, I guess you popped in during one of my many failures), I got it to take. This time instead of the simple straight brackets I had used before I used the HTML coding character. It finally worked when I did that img src= coding AND used backticks. Very confusing because, as I just said, it did not work as it did before. This time it was completely different."
BobJam, thanks for the explanation. As I am using a lot of pictures in my answers, I just want the simple IMG facility back. It's enough trouble having to upload it etc. (in lieu of just pasting it into the post). I don't want to have to go thru left bracket, right bracket, etc. stuff for a simple picture posting. As it is right now, I cannot post. So I will just wait until it has been fixed.
Btw: All this animated stuff is very distracting. If this Forum is becoming a circus, I do not want to be a clown in it. I think hash started that. I already hated it then.
whs + LH,
Without getting into tech speak, I think the Geek is trying to fix the site where it can pull down (Reference) an image or picture from (ANY) website. This would the traditional ones where the members have had to upload their files to (AND) also from the Members own Websites.
NOT a big issue but it does take a bit of time and coding and HE CAN CODE if anyone can.
Be patient as ALL member's input is welcome and needed to make the site even better.
EDIT: I will blank out all my test picture postings before I retire for the evening.
