when you click REPLY the Option to attach a file is not visible.
Look to the Left side of the Box where you type.
You will see "Additional Options".
click it.  that is where the Magic happens!

If your image is already on the Internet, copy and paste the address of the image and then put

[ img ] before the address and then put this: [ /img ]  at the end.
(leave the spaces between the brackets out though, I had to put them in or the tags would not show up.)

TO UPLOAD A PHOTO
« Reply #3 on: June 05, 2007, 07:53:44 PM »
I already posted this several months ago (it's from my http://www.triporteurs.co.uk website). How about someone making PHOTO UPLOAD INSTRUCTIONS (this or someone else's) into a sticky at the top of each forum category so we can get more images posted onto the forum?

Post subject: HOW TO ADD A PHOTO TO YOUR FORUM POST
Posted: Sun Feb 25, 2007 8:11 pm

To add a photo to this (or any other) forum, you need to use a third-party website such as Photobucket.com.

Go to the website, and follow the instructions there for uploading a digital photo stored on your own computer.

If you look at Photobucket.com as an example, you'll see that under the photo you have uploaded are 3 names, in boxes titled url, tag and img. The bottom one (img) is the one you need.

IT WILL LOOK LIKE THIS:

Copy and paste that title under the text in your forum posting; for example -

Hi, my name is Otto and here's a picture of my Blotto


Miracle of miracles ...your photo appears in your posting!


Essentially, a forum cannot host (store) your photo, but the title you have copied and pasted into your forum post is a link to where your photo is stored in cyberspace (in this case photobucket.com). You could link it similarly to your own website.

When you upload your photos from your computer to Photobucket it automatically resizes them to the maximum size it allows. And it's free.

If you're not yet totally familiar with internet tasks, this is a great exercise for practising and learning more about how things work inside the cyberspace engine.

Good luck!

Hello Colin, I did try following your instructions back in February, but the bit I ( and I think several others) were falling down on was the bit about typing the address of the picture one wants to use from the third-party website. We'd type the address but it still wouldn't attatch where we wanted it.

 I got the pictures up by having first saved the picture I wanted to use in the "my picturers" folder of my own computer. and then opening that file in the box that askes you for the address of the third-party website. (Is that bit clear to everyone still struggling?)

 The Yellow thing pictured above did indeed come from your original listing. No offence taken I hope, but I save just about every picture I come across on the forum/ebay/elsewhere, and this was the first one to hove into view when I was following the above instructions.

Hi Stuart, I can't remember the picture! But everything on my listings and on my websites is for sharing. I've been working hard to get as much obsolete info as possible into cyberspace in the hope that lots more folks will discover our vintage hobby.

Could someone PLEASE compile a how-it-do-it message for photo-uploads and add it as a sticky to the top of each forum category? Lots of photos on a specialist forum are like a fast gear-change in a Berkeley - everyone will want a look :)

If it works, you should see a self-portrait...

Filth! Sacrilege!  Tantamount to playing kickabout with the '66 world cup final football.

Excuse me while I projectile vomit..

things beautiful and excellent, shine forth far better when other people
praise them than when they boast so confidently of their own achievements."

Yes I agree. We will be having pictures of hotrods and custom cars next! I suppose it would be acceptable to do that sort of thing to an invalid carrage but not twenty grands worth of TG. Only joking Stuart. Will we be seeing your Mini Comtesse at Jeans? I rather fancy a short drive in one. If you have slipped a porche boxter engine in it by then that would be even better!

customs and hotrods
« Reply #11 on: June 20, 2007, 11:01:11 AM »
That question again - as old as time itself - customizing rare vintage cars. Much has already been said on this subject of course; it's probably the most emotional subject arising in purist vintage car circles. And at risk of condemnation i will readily admit to liking both stock and customized vehicles. I think it would be boring if there were only vehicles around restored to the letter, and i think there is room for both styles.

While I'm researching the beginnings of three-wheelers, i keep wondering about those pioneer days, when folks tried out different engines in different frames and chassis, experimented with designs, built one-offs, prototypes - the results were the vintage cars we know today, and i suppose the modern ones too.

Whether working away in the lock-up restoring to standard spec or trying out variations on original designs, it reminds me of those days. We all have to make parts from scratch, remanufacture body panels, and modify where necessary - because some original designs did not run for long enough for the makers to upgrade inherent faults. So, to a degree, are we all customizers?

Now that's put the cat among the pigeons...

To take one of the finest things to come out of Germany.....  And to bung its engine in a Messeschmitt eh Bob, such sacrillige.   ;D

 Of things elsewhere, the Mini-Comtesse WILL be at the farm on July 29th. Whisper it quiatly, but even Jean has hinted that she might like to take it for a trot! Further bookings for test-drives now being taken. Just mesuring it up for the Rover V8 transplat at this very moment.....  I think the Boxter-engined Comtesse must be the one on the title page of Denis's Microcarfan website, judging by the wheelie it's pulling.....

 And another thing! Why is it nobody goes much on my conveyaces, yet they go nuts on the Comtesse which is not unlike several conveyaces I could think of. Stick a Model 70 next to the Comtesse, or the Comtesse next to a Peel P50. There's no real differance....
