Ok, here goes, I'll try uploading

.......Came on small and sideways ....  ?

Two things here, Christine -  first, the sideways thing - this I believe depends on the orientation of the camera when the shot was taken -  the image  can default back to the original  when posted .  Here I have  reposted it when turned  in my machine, and secondly, it is appearing as a thumbnail because you have  added it as an "end of post  expandable thumbnail" - rather than choosing the  "inline full-size  image"  choice as an attachment ....



  - lovely Petrocosmea, by the way!

Gloating, gloating ... simply gloating, gloating.
If you add them as "inline full-size image"  Cliff, they are loud and proud on the page  and  need not be opened individually!

How I would love to attend what I know  will be a  super talk by John Massey - a star in so many fields - to commemorate Jim Lever -  one of the nicest  people I've known in the "rocky plant" world.

I don,t know what facebook is so I won,t bother looking at it. Don,t know behemoth either so I looked it up. It says, huge creature. I wouldn,t want that flying into me. I don,t have an Iphone, or a smart phone. The only tablets I have are prescribed by my doc. I wonder how I will manage?

Re: SRGC ease of posting photos!

About posting photos - I know the ease of loading pix to facebook is very tempting - along with all those "like" ticks - but  the SRGC Forum has undergone some changes recently and if using the  (attachimg=1)  code - with the square brackets (rather than the ones I've used to allow you to see without confusing the system with code) it is possible to attach  larger photo sizes which will be automatically resized to the page and open in the  text box.
I don't suggest  using huge  multi-MB file sizes - but  one can post much larger photos than previously - plus the size that photos are resized to on Facebook will transfer here perfectly.
 A couple of random examples .....

Testing...

Well that seemed to work. So you just type attachimg=1 (plus brackets) at the beginning of the text and that's it?

Dear Maggi,
My system says that the forum site is not secure. Please consult this with the provider.
Ask them to make Inline full-size image default.

It is not necessary to type [attachimg=1]. The engine does it by the following procedure.
Simply move the cursor to the place in the text where the image should be included.
Choose Attachments an other options.
Click on End-of-post expandable thumbnail or Inline expandable thumbnail
or Inline full-size image,  and choose Inline full-size image.
Select the attached image from your directory.
You can add further image in another place by the same procedure, the engine will insert [attachimg=2].

Josef's instructions are correct. We do not intend to remove the other options for  posting.
When  one attaches photos  etc to a forum post,  under the "Attachments and other options" button below the text  box, there are various choices - when one uses the   (attachimg=1)  code - within the square brackets -
it is possible to attach  larger photo sizes which will be automatically resized to the page and open in the  text box.  (I've used () type to allow you to see without confusing the system with code when using the code in square brackets - that is to say, if I showed the code inside the square brackets all you would see is an attachment unavailable message because there is no picture loaded)
A screen grab of those options is shown below ( in inline expandable thumbnail version !)

 Josef, the forum is the same as ever - it is just that recently  browsers have beome  more enthusiastic to "warn" people  that a site does not have https encryption.  The same warning is shown for any number of other sites like ours. We do not consider that necessary for the SRGC site  because there is no  sensitive material held onsite.  https  level security  also costs  more to provide and this seems an unneeded expense for a charitable site providing free information to our audience.
