We're working on the smilies, Karen - it's a two part process - first we import a batch, then we sort out the ones that should stay on the posting page. It should be more reasonable in an hour or so.

Who is the eagle in the first picture?

Thanks, Karen - I was wondering if it was part of the tracking study!

It's not intuitive, but once you've added a file, if you click the "Place Inline" beside that image, the image will go wherever your cursor is, rather than ending up at the end in an Attachment box.

A second quirk of the software is that pictures that are 500 pixels or less in width will show info about the picture underneath them, like the pictures Debs posted just before this post. We're hoping that will be fixed in the next update of the software, or there may be something we can do to fix it - but not for the next few weeks when we'll be too busy to try editing the underlying software. :)

Less than perfect solution - when possible, attach pictures that are at least 501 pixels wide. :%:

Trying to get rid of "Attachments" label above s'caps............. Don't seem to be able to do it. :( Tried several times.

Well, finally got it..........but it seems like an awful lot of steps to do, and when things are busy on the nest, it will be a nuisance. Will try another one to see if it is quicker this time.

Thanks Judy........I have it now, but have to say I don't like the extra steps to get it there. And I think zoomers may be tempted to just slide the picture in, rather than clicking on the "Place Inline" box. Things can happen really fast sometimes and if a zoomer is the only poster, they may want to do that instead, although it doesn't look as nice to have the "Attachments" label there.

What do you mean by "slide a picture in"? This may be something I haven't learned yet! :)

And you don't have to mess with FILE tags and remember which number is which.
