Our forum is available because a company called Forumotion gives us free internet space and the software to conduct forum business.  Occasionally, they change things and push the changes out to all the forums using their system.  We just had such a "push".

Maybe this will help.

Here is an example of the Table functionality.  I found out that you had better type whatever you want ahead of inserting the table, because it won't let you insert text before a table, once a table has been inserted.  Same goes for text after a table. 

I tried to center the baby pic in it's cell, but it didn't work.  Maybe I did something wrong that time, I dunno.

At least, insert a space for text, before and after you insert a table... or you won't be able to add text later.

This is really cool, Eric! I was stumped when I had trouble posting this morning on another....cough, cough.....forumotion forum, only to learn here that forumotion had revamped their posting tools.

I am hoping this will help me post a picture from my hard drive. I have had one heck of a time trying to do that. The only ones that would post were pictures I had stored on Dropbox, which is a cloud storage system.

Nope. It still won't work for me. I'm unable to load any pictures from my hard drive. I just tested two or three JPEGS. Bummer.

It looks like you are skipping the step that uploads the photos to ServImg.  I see the link to your hard drive and when you post the photo to ServImg, it is now on the web... not your hard drive.

Do you see this screen?



If you do, you're almost there.  Hit the copy button (see the arrow in the pic above), the link should be hightlighted.  It should, but doesn't put it into your paste buffer.  To get around that, once the link is highlighted, right click on it and select COPY.  Then paste that copied link into your post.

Eric, I finally figured out my problem yesterday. I wasn't waiting for the picture to load to ServIMG. Instead, I selected the text from the box on the first page.  Indeed, I was posting the location of the picture on my hard drive, just like you said. 

Gawd, I'm slow sometimes.jocolor

Thank you sooo much for the table that explains each function. It is so helpful!
