Missed this thread earlier...but it looks like this question was never really answered.
The way you post text then pics, (like this)
then more text (or oversized pictures) is to link to them uploaded on a webserver other than the AirstreamForums. If you have a webpage posted somewhere, just use that server space to store your upload photos and link to them in your posts here. To post here, use the "Insert Picture" (the little yellow button w/mountians & sun) and type in that location. For me, as an example, the above picture is located at http://www.insideout-design.net/maxw...dinnerspot.jpg
. You do this instead of using the "Manage Attachments" easy post technique which is a feature built-in to this forum program. It hosts the picture on the forum server and limits the way they can be served.
This one lives at http://www.insideout-design.net/maxwell/home/barn.jpg
and so on...
You can also store your pictures in the members gallery at http://www.airforums.com/photos/
and link to them there. One thing to consider though, is if you move them off the remote server at a later date, they will no longer show in your posts here. For this reason IMO, it may be better to use the server (and the "Manage Attachments" easy post technique) here to store pictures posted here, that way if your website server changes, your pictures aren't lost in space. It's an easier "no muss, no fuss" method for those not as savvy in writing or working with .html
Make sense? The bottomline is, you have to have a remote server to do so.
