within one message?

You can only attach one picture at a time (the next version, due in a few months will allow multiple) . If you can link a photo that's hosted elsewhere, you can post multiple images. When you are creating the post you'll see a tag listed "img" in the vB Code section - enter the url to the link there and it will add the proper code to the post. Again, that only works with images that are already hosted on the Internet (say on your home page for your cable service)...

Wrong John, or maybe I fooled the system, or maybe I'm the only one seeing the pictures. When I posted some rod thread art on the personalizing your rod post, I used your image button. Then I copied it over and over into the reply, just changing the file name on my server. Looked like all the pictures are up, unless it's just becaue I've got them on my hard drive and my browser is showing them to me. You can tell I know a lot about this stuff right :).

GS - if you use that image tag and type in your local path like c:\docs\images\blah.whatever, yes you will see it but nobody else will :D ...

If you can put the pics up on the Internet, like that free webspace that comes with your cable modem, right click on the image agter it's up, go to properties, highlight where it says url httsomething/something/name.jpg (whatever it is) - right click again on the highlited part and select "copy". This will copy the link to your clipboard and you then hit the IMG button on the post screen then you can paste that link into the box that opens up. This will make the needed image link inside the post... I'll add some pics :D

So your telling me when I thought I'd posted 5 pictures of thread art, only one you can see in that thread? They are all uploaded and on a server on the web, not just on my hard drive. So if that's the case, post links to those pictures in the post would be the way to go, click the 5 links to the pictures on my server and people could see them?

OK - if you linked them to your server on the web, it will work but if you linked them to your hard drive - you're the only one seeing them. I just looked and saw the thread about the thread :rollem: :D and you did link to a server on the web. You can link numerous pics OK but you can't "attach" more than one per post.
