So...John is going to work up photo linking directions for flikr. 
There is a learning curve to get the graphics embeded in the message board software.  That is a different procedure than adding to a post.  And my programming skills re so rusty...


Gotcha. Sorry, just read all the posts in this thread. On it.


As we've discussed, linking photos from Flickr requires using a laptop or computer. Just cannot do it from a mobile device. At least not yet.

Hey, after an hour of trial and error, I finally figured out just that part of the code to embed in the css sheet for the banner!  So, I have that much. 
Adding photos from Flikr to a post is very easy, from a computer anyway.

Okay, I have amended the FAQ section on linking pictures to include specific instructions for using Flickr.

I downloaded all my photos from photo bucket to my Mac and deleted the account.  I realized after that all my links to pics in my journal are now gone :( Maybe at some point I'll go in and replace the photos :) I refused to pay to get rid of ads, and it drove me crazy to use it.

And you sure didn't think it was worth $400 per year to keep up you journal photos.

Actually, I love reading people's journals...but no, it is not worth $400 per year, per person.

Whew! I may have over-thought this! Anywho....   I have completely re-written the explanations on posting pictures, one post explicitly for using Flickr. Both posts are stickies in the FAQ section. Please take a look if you have any reason to use Flickr and have questions on how to link pictures. I hope this helps.

I still think if they had offered say a $10 option, with fewer photos, more people would have taken them up on it.
As it is, I decided if I have to spend $400 to host GHS, I am going to spend it on hosting, not photos.  We have jumped from the $400 per year account to the $800 per year account, because of stored photos.  But if members can donate $400, I will spend $400 just to keep this place going, and photo sharing an option.  I hope Flikr decides to offer a low usage account for money, and I will happily pay for that, too.  Just not $400 every single year.

And I also have to say, I just don't like Facebook for actual real discussions.  Chit chat, yes, but not a real discussion seeking information.  For one thing, one Facebook, I only see conversations of my friends.  That is a wide circle, but there are people not my "friends" that met have valuable insight.  And conversations just get lost in mess that is your news feed.  I see a linked article I like, but if I want to find it again, I cannot.

Maybe it is because I set up the categories here, but I do like the organization, and I can find things again!

So, yes, Facebook may be the downfall of many forums, but I hope no this one.  I need this community.

I like the forum for specific information also.  Some of my Facebook friends have no idea what "horse people" are talking about...or care!  ;D

I noticed that photo bucket is offering photo links to non-commercial websites for only $99 per year.  Yeah, they can beg all they want, not supporting them ever again.
