After a cursory search of the site while logged in, I couldn’t find the standards of conduct (rules) for posting. They are displayed and must be agreed to during the registration process. I would suggest that they should also be available to members logged in as a reference that can be cut and pasted as needed.

Nice catch, it was set at the default of 1. I increased this to 25, as sometimes people want to post alot of scenic pictures of a trip. I also bumped up the max file size feature a tad as out web hosting account gives us a crazy amount of server space.

Here's another request. Is it possible to allow a member to set a default font, font size, and font color for posting instead of the current method of setting all of these each and every time we post something? For instance, I generally use Comic Sans MS at 130 and use a maroon color. It would be very nice to be able to set all of that as my default for all my postings. There doesn't appear to be any way to select Comic Sans MS here. 8-)

A offical ruleset is being worked on, should be available for discussion very soon.

I've researched this after you posted the request. Default software doesnt support it, however there is a mod to allow a user to automatically insert code in the beginning, and end of his post. This code could be font setting. I will install the mod and make sure it works ok and does what you want, but it sounds like this indeed is possible.

More info to follow.

Still trying to post a fishing report and it won't let me add more than 3 photos.

Here is what I get when trying to add a 4th photo...

Example pictures! Excellent!

Oddly the setting reverted back to 3... I had changed it but something went fubar. I made a test post in the photography section with 5 attachments and it worked fine.

Had to make 2 posts as I couldn't add an 11th photo in the first post. Came up with the same error stating now 10 is the maximum. It appears pics are cutoff and you have to click on them to expand. Is there anyway to adjust so you don't have to click and get the expand window? I resize to like 600x480...

Thanks DallanC... :) :)

Increased to 25 pictures allowed per post.

As for the size, its supposed to be making a thumbnail, not cropping it. It made the thumbnail just fine when I posted gallery links to pictures I uploaded.

If attachments get to be a pain, I can create user albums in the gallery you can upload to, then link here.
